Galaxy Fold 2 Display 

The display will be the main point of attraction in any foldable phone. It is expected that Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will have a Dynamic AMOLED display with a punch-hole screen. This already sounds interesting to the users. 

This foldable device should have in or around ~ 400 PPI (pixel per inch) display. A 6.3-inch display with 1689 X 2213 pixels and 120Hz refresh rate, the phone is going to be incredibly fast & snappy to use.

Nowadays many of the flagship smartphones have 90Hz to 120Hz panels which means the device can refresh the screen 90 times per second(90Hz) and 120 times per second (120Hz). The capacitive touchscreen with multitouch is also available.

All these features will be in a 7.59-inch display (when unfolded) and the smartphone will become a 4.47-inch device when folded. The 7.59-inch display is a huge display which most of the users can avoid using in public but when it’s folded it turns into a compact device of 4.47 inch which is handy and great.  These few features about the display already show the premium level of this foldable device.

Performance 

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to have fasted SoC’s till now. As it is a next-generation variant of Galaxy Fold that runs on Snapdragon 855 7nm processor from Qualcomm, we can expect something better and faster this time.

This foldable smartphone is expected to be available with 12GB / 16GB of RAM. With this set of specs, you can do multitasking at ease and surely improve productivity in day to day life. Samsung usually launches its devices in two versions i.e  US variant and International Variant. The US variant will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 as per updated and the international versions, we might see Exynos  SoC variant as well. The phone is expected to have an Adreno 650 GPU unit to boost its graphics.

Which one is more powerful, EXYNOS, or SNAPDRAGON? 

Qualcomm Snapdragon is a U.S. company that is currently running on almost every android smartphone. The Android smartphone industry is ruled by Snapdragon as it is considered the most powerful in android. Exynos is a private processor chip owned by Samsung. It is a Samsung product and the company claimed that it is the fastest processor chip in the market. 

The Snapdragon’s latest chip introduced in 2020 is 865 and Exynos’ latest chip introduced by Samsung in 2020 is 990, well we will see.    

It can be said that both the chips are equally powerful for a moment but no one can ignore the fact that Exynos is a runner on only one brand’s device i.e. Samsung and Qualcomm Snapdragon is a worldwide used processor chip. It is easy to assume which one is more reliable and powerful.

Camera and Storage 

The camera is considered as the primary feature of the phone. A good quality camera automatically attracts customers. Well, the expected camera features of this device are quite interesting. The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will have a  triple camera setup with the ISO control feature. It should be having a minimum of 64MP+ 16MP+ 13MP rear camera and 10MP+ 8MP front camera setup providing an image resolution of 9000×7000 pixels.


Apart from this, there is one more rumor getting popular that we may see 108 MP camera setup as we have in Galaxy S20 Ultra. Personally, I would like to the same camera setup from S20 Ultra with improved focus capability. Along with this, the camera has the basic features of auto flash, autofocus, and more. 

It will have HDR10+, 512 GB UFC 3.0 storage, and S-Pen.

Battery 

The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 has a 4500 mAh battery with a quick charging feature of expected 30w fast charging. It has a Li-ion battery type and also supports wireless charging. The phone will feature wireless charging of 15W and reverse wireless charging as well.
