Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2: The Major Upgrades
The folding phone was last year headline-worthy. Now, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G can fold. if you haven’t forgotten, a lot happened last year with the galaxy fold but the benefit of being Samsung is just experimenting, make mistakes, and learn a lot from it.
They learn a lot from their mistakes and so one thing I’ve noticed about the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a lot of these changes are learned directly from the Fold 1.
Looking at the Z Fold 2, there are areas with major improvements, that would be the Screen, Hinge, Cameras, Design, and Improved specs.
- Snapdragon 865.
- 12GB ram.
- 4500mAh Dual battery.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 Major Improvements
It feels more refined, has a little bit of weight and a beautiful satin finish.
The cover screen and main screen got big upgrades. The cover screen is now full size and it goes from the little 4.6-inch display with huge bezels to a full-size 6.2-inch display with tiny bezels.
The 6.2-inch display is going to change the way we use the fold because the tiny cover screen was pretty limiting. On the inside of the Fold is your Second big screen, the bezels inside are a little thinner. Now, it’s a 7.6″ Display versus 7.3″ Display huge corner cut out from last year.
The Display is impressive and the main screen has been upgraded with a high refresh rate of 120Hz and it’s an adaptive refresh rate. So, it can modulate from 11Hz to 120Hz depending on what’s happening on the screen.
The hinge in foldable is the most important part of a folding device just like the surface duo’s hinge is one of the most impressive things in any piece of tech.
The hinge is the second version of their Zero Gap Hinge and looks Pretty similar to the first one conceptually. It’s still the same hinge and backplate but this year, Samsung will let you customize the back-plate color.
The hinge will allow a free stand anywhere to 115°, meaning it can stay put at any reasonable angle.
There’s a bunch of software features built around this new hinge which I will dive into in a Full review.
The first-generation Fold had pretty good cameras with flagship quality. The Z Fold 2 comes with flagship quality cameras:
A triple 12-megapixel camera on the back with a regular telephoto and ultra-wide.
The camera isn’t the major improvement but the update is the layout of the cameras that squared-off Camera bump like Note 10.
The front camera display is a 10 Megapixel selfie hole-punch camera which is better than the huge bezel camera cut-out of the previous fold.
