Join Samsung mobile experts who will help to explain the key technologies of the new Galaxy Z Fold2 foldable smartphone!


Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 : A Quick Primer!

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is the successor to the Galaxy Fold – the first Samsung foldable smartphone.

It naturally comes with a bevy of improvements, which should hopefully correct many of the criticisms of their first effort.

It is about the same size as the Galaxy Fold, but has a larger 7.6-inch Infinity Edge display, now protected by Ultra-Thin Glass; and a much larger 6.2-inch cover display.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+, it comes with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB / 512 GB of internal storage, as well as a slightly larger 4,500 mAh battery.

Samsung arranged for their experts to help explain what’s new in the Galaxy Z Fold2 smartphone in these videos.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Cameras + Flex Mode

The foldable design will give you greater flexibility in using the Galaxy Z Fold2’s cameras :

  • the Flex mode lets you take group selfies or long exposure photos without a tripod,
  • Capture View mode lets you preview what you are recording live,
  • Dual Preview lets you use both main display and cover display simultaneously, and
  • Rear Cam Selfie lets you use the rear camera for high-resolution selfies,

The new rear camera also comes with a Bright Night sensor, which is 1.65X larger, allowing for better low-light performance.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Design

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is about the same size as the Galaxy Fold, but has a larger 7.6-inch Infinity Edge display, thanks to smaller bezels.

On top of that, the team also removed the large display notch, replacing it with a tiny punch hole for the front camera.

Finally, the Mystic Bronze colour option comes with the haze finish – an advanced surface treatment, with a satin matte finish.

Users will be allowed to personalise their devices using customisable hideaway hinges, with five colour options – Metallic Red, Metallic Silver, Mystic Bronze, Metallic Gold and Metallic Blue.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Hinge + Sweeper Mechanism

Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 now uses a dual cam mechanism, which was first introduced in the Galaxy Z Flip.

It is also now built with a stronger retention force to maintain the 180 degree angle, and prevent the device from accidentally folding.

The built-in sweeper mechanism protects the dual cam hinge by repelling dirt and dust, while being sturdy and reliable enough to last more than 200,000 folds and unfolds.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Multitasking Capabilities

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 also comes with improved software to support its larger, dual displays.

  • Multi-Window Tray and Edge Panel were integrated, letting you run an application in full screen / split / pop-up screens, as you prefer
  • The Multi-Active Screen capability lets you perform actions like drag and drop.
  • The Split Screen Capture lets you capture the screen of a window, instead of the entire display
  • New Pop-Up Window design minimises finger movements while using the large display.
