The first generation Galaxy Fold smartphone made a splash in the smartphone market. Although there were some issues related to the screen hinge and it was postponed a few times when it was released, it became a bestseller. From this date on, we knew that the second generation model would be much better. So everyone was looking forward to it. An hour ago, the Samsung Unpacked event ended. And we saw a lot of new and incredible products in front of the Note 20 series, Watch 3 smartwatch, Tab S7 tablet tablets and of course the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
In fact, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 had improvements in all aspects. When considering the first generation of Samsung foldable smartphones, we thought that this technology and form factor are not mature. But now that we have our hands on the second generation model, we understand that many people will think about embracing the folding experience.
The 4.6-inch screen is now being replaced by a 6.2-inch screen. Occupies the entire front panel.
On the opposite side, we can find a sleek camera module, which has three sensors.
However, what makes the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 look so amazing is the 7.7 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2213 × 1689 pixels and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Thus, the diagonal is 0.4 inches longer than the one we found in the previous model. But what deserves our attention the most is the aspect ratio, which is closer to a square. In other words, the underside is larger. Simply put, the screen is 13.5% larger than the old one.
In addition to these changes, the company has removed these bad beats. Now, there is a small hole for the camera, which can be used for any purpose, from conference calls to taking photos.
If you are still worried about the durability of the screen, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 proves to come with a more powerful screen. In addition, it comes with an ultra-thin layer of glass for extra rigidity.
Therefore, if we summarize the design improvements, we must say that this model looks more attractive.
Performance Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
We are facing an integration of power and beauty. So you can expect to see all the latest hardware and software features The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is powered by Snapdragon 865+. As you know, it is the same SND865 with overclocked CPU speed. In addition, it offers better GPU performance. This is necessary when driving all these pixels that the internal screen has.
The SoC is combined with an impressive 12 GB LPDDR5 RAM. However, the basic storage has been reduced to 256 GB. But it is UFS 3.1. So the speed is in place.
Although the battery has become larger, 4500mAh, in everyday use, it will not be felt.
