When Samsung finally got around to launching the Galaxy Fold, it was met with a somewhat lukewarm reception. This is because for the price of the phone, many weren’t exactly impressed. Samsung has confirmed their plans to launch a new foldable phone later this year which could be their second chance at getting this right.
There is of course the question of when, but a report from Korean publication Hankook Ilbo, they claim that the Galaxy Fold 2 will be launching in August later this year. Given that we’re almost in June, it means that we’re about 2-3 months away from the phone being officially announced.
What’s interesting is the timing, because August is roughly around when Samsung usually announces their new Galaxy Note phones. The company is expected to launch the Galaxy Note 20 this year, so it is possible that the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Fold 2 will be sharing the same event.
According to the rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 will come with improved cameras, a bigger display, and could also be slightly cheaper. This is because Samsung will be giving the phone a base option of 256GB of storage instead of 512GB, which could lower the price by about $100.
Take this report with a grain of salt, but we imagine that more details will be leaked in the coming weeks ahead of the launch.
