Less than 24 hours away from its rumored launch, and the Galaxy Z Fold2 has finally been shown off in all of its glory. Evan Blass (@evleaks) has been on a Samsung-sharing spree as of late, providing full-res images of the various devices slated to be announced at tomorrow’s Unpacked event.

This confirms the larger display on the outside and inside of the device, which is refreshing, to say the least. Samsung is moving to the Infinity-O option for the inner display, while expanding the “cover” display to cover almost the entire front.

Rumored Specs

  • 6.23-inch Super AMOLED Cover Display
  • 7.7-inch Super AMOLED primary display
  • 120Hz Refresh rate on primary display
  • 64MP/12MP/12MP rear camera sensors
  • 10MP camera on primary display
  • Up to 512GB of storage
  • Two batteries totaling ~4,400mAh
  • 15W wireless and reverse wireless charging
  • 5G connectivity

As expected, there will be multiple color options to choose from, including the new bronze colorway that is taking over Samsung’s devices in the 2nd half of 2020. We’ll also be getting a camera hump similar to that on the rumored Note 20, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the sensors themselves are at least the same quality as the Galaxy S20.

When is the Galaxy Z Fold2 coming?

Samsung’s Unpacked Event is slated to take place tomorrow, August 5th, starting at 10 AM. While there will be nobody in attendance, you will be able to watch the devices unveiled live, with the rest of the world.

Samsung is hosting the live-stream on its website, and we won’t be surprised if there’s a YouTube option as well. As for a release date, it’s likely that Samsung will make that announcement tomorrow as well, and we are expecting to see a September or October launch. At least, that’s the hope. And for pricing, this will likely match up with the almost $2,000 retail price that was found on the original Galaxy Fold.

Are you going to be picking one of these up for yourself? Or are you just excited to see updated foldables made available?
