The Samsung Galaxy Fold was launched with a foldable screen design in September this year. Now, the phone’s successor has been spotted in China via some live images. The company had teased a new clamshell design back in October and the device can be seen sporting the same in the newly leaked photos. Along with this, the alleged Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 appears to have a hole in the screen in the middle to house the selfie camera. While the Galaxy Fold opened up horizontally to show a wider display, its successor folds vertically, according to the images that have surfaced.
Adding to the vertically divided screen and a punch-hole display, the images have also revealed dual cameras on the back of the purported Galaxy Fold 2. A small screen is also visible on the outside, which will show information like notifications, time, weather etc. The codename of this device is rumoured to be Bloom and its model number is speculated to be SM-F700F. It is also likely to sport a 6.7-inch foldable display and a cover display that measures 1-inch or 2-inch.
The rumour mill has also suggested that the phone is likely to house a 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX primary lens. The Galaxy Fold, on the other hand, sports an outer display measuring 4.6-inch with HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 21:9. The device can be opened like a book to reveal its larger foldable AMOLED display of 7.3 inches with a resolution of 1,536 x 2,152 pixels. The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and features an OIS-assisted triple camera set up.
The Galaxy Fold was launched with an expensive price tag of Rs 1,64,999, but its successor, the Galaxy Fold 2 could be offered at affordable prices. The phone could be launched on February 18th at the Galaxy Unpacked Event.
