The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a significant step-up over the Galaxy Fold in nearly every area. It comes with a more durable design and a larger 7.6-inch main display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The 6.23-inch cover display is also significantly larger than the one on the Galaxy Fold. The first Galaxy Z fold 2 review video, which was posted on YouTube earlier this week, highlighted the design differences between the two phones and also showed off some of the key software features of Samsung's latest foldable.

Even though it hasn't been confirmed yet, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 likely runs on the same Snapdragon 865+ chipset as the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Note 20 series.
