Samsung has spent several years and a lot of money developing flexible display technology. So it’s worth it, she was the first to bring a foldable commercial smartphone to market. The latest is the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 2. The South Korean giant continues to bring the idea of bringing devices with flexible screens to the masses and even talks about the release of a “budget” version.
And in the short term, the company started selling the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. Yesterday, it confirmed that it is preparing to hold the second part of the Unpacked event on September 1, which will be fully dedicated to the successor to the Galaxy Fold – Galaxy Z Fold 2. As As part of this, it will officially announce all the features and capabilities of Samsung’s third foldable smartphone and will also name the price. By the way, the latter is no longer a big secret.
The price and release date of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 have been revealed
A pre-ordered page for the smartphone has appeared on the European page of Samsung’s official website. The company offers to order the device at the price of 7 1,799 or $ 2,391. The start date of sales is also known – September 18.
In addition, the company released a version of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with the famous fashion designer Tom Brownie. This is not the first time they have worked with a designer. Previously, an exclusive version of the Galazy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was created, which also arrived in a gray case with a red-white-blue stripe.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 appeared in a video and is not perfect
Samsung won the race for smartphones with folding screens. But it lost mainly in terms of the reliability and self-sufficiency of technology. Only the lazy did not write about screen damage, dead pixels and defect of the Galaxy Fold joint mechanism. And many others complained about the fold that forms in the folding and spoils the visual perception of the screen. And it seems that the new GalaxyZ Fold 2 will not solve these problems.
Unfortunately, today’s technological advancement has not allowed the company to solve the problem of “wrinkles” on the screen. In addition, Video showing the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 appeared on the network, where you can see that a separate aspect is visible in the fold. But do not forget that the second generation of a foldable smartphone is just a demonstration of technologies, an effort to go one step further to improve them. Also, there is no commercial interest in big sales, the goal is to test the technology and test users’ perception of the new form factor.
