  • The first real-world image of the Galaxy Fold successor has surfaced.
  • It seemingly confirms that Samsung's next foldable phone will indeed be called the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
  • The image also reveals a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera on the internal screen.

An early unboxing video of the Galaxy Watch 3 revealed Samsung's upcoming smartwatch in all its glory yesterday. An alleged real-world image of the Galaxy Fold successor has now appeared online, revealing the foldable phone's marketing name and a hole-punch cutout on the right side of the internal display.

The image corroborates a recent report that suggested the Galaxy Fold successor will be named the Galaxy Z Fold 2. It also reveals a hole-punch cutout on the right side of the internal display, instead of the big display notch on the Galaxy Fold. However, this isn't the first time that the design of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been revealed. Earlier this month, a low resolution render gave us our first look at the foldable phone in Mystic Bronze.

Just like the recently launched Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is expected to come equipped with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865+ processor. The foldable phone is rumored to have a massive 7.7-inch main display with a 120Hz refresh rate and Ultra Thin Glass. In the camera department, the Galaxy Fold successor is said to feature a triple-camera setup with a 12MP main sensor, 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 64MP telephoto lens. Some of the other rumored features of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 include a 6.23-inch cover display, 4365mAh battery with 25W fast charging,

  • A giant dead pixel in the screen. No thanks. Can't believe consumers accept this terrible design. Give me a bezel or a notch any day
  • I think it depends on how you look at it. I got a p40 pro as I wanted to see what life was like without Google and I did worry about the big cut out on the screen. After having the phone for 3 months now I have to say I don't notice it. Most videos I watch tend to have a black border so it blends in. When playing games I use a controller and the camera cut out is always at the bottom left so again never see it. Personality I hate the new camera layouts on the back of the phone. It's the same with the iPhone and Samsung devices to. I had to put a case on to stop catching it when holding the phone. I perfer the back camera being spread across the phone rather than like they are now. I do think the next few gens of phones we will see front cameras and speakers under the screens though and this is more pleasing on the eye.
  • You do know there is an option to hide the hole punch right?
  • Interesting, I did not. Does the setting add a faux bezel to hide it?
  • here it goes again my hard earned money!
