Weeks after the Unpacked event for the Galaxy Note20 series and also the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, the company has released more details regarding their next foldable smartphone and it does come with a lot of new features including a better hinge and also a better display.
Larger and better display
Samsung has made a lot of improvements on the display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2. First, it now features a bigger 6.2-inch Infinity-O display on the front and also a bigger 7.6-inch main display inside with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate which means that you can have a smoother display when playing games but it automatically adjusts to a lower refresh rate when you’re just reading articles and other stuff with less motion.
This is great for people who want to have a smartphone and also a tablet in one and with this display, it’s perfect to watch movies and videos on the smartphone and if you’re into that, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 now offers a dual speaker which gives a better audio on the smartphone.
A more flexible hinge
One of the main parts that a lot of people that are looking into foldable smartphones is the hinge and thankfully on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, the company has opted to a better hinge with features like the sweeper technology that was seen on the Galaxy Z Flip that can remove dust and particles from the hinge and also a hideaway hinge and a cam mechanism that allows free-standing on the smartphone. With this feature, the Galaxy Z Fold2 offers more possibilities.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 has also opted for a unified design from the Galaxy Note20 series with its haze design at the back and also the protruding camera at the back that houses the triple-lens camera
One of the new features on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is the flex mode. Since we got here a flexible hinge that can go from 75 degrees to 115 degrees on the smartphone, you can do a lot more on the software side of the smartphone. For example when you’re opening the smartphone in half-folded mode, the smartphone can recognize it and it can give you a better layout on some applications including YouTube and other native applications.
For taking selfies, you can now have a dual preview mode that lets you use the cover display of the smartphone as another viewfinder so you can use the rear camera for better selfies or just have better poses when you’re shooting on the rear camera of the smartphone.
There’s also another feature called Auto Framing in where the camera follows you or objects that you’re shooting thanks to machine learning and it’s perfect for vloggers who are using the smartphone in flex mode. And since we got flex mode, you can use the smartphone in flex mode and never look for a tripod since the smartphone can stand on itself.
Made for productivity
Another feature that I love on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is its multi-tasking capabilities. First, you can adjust the smartphone’s DPI which give you the control to have more space and elements on the smartphone’s display. Not only that, you can also have a PC-like UI or tablet UI on some applications including Microsoft Office.
Speaking of Microsoft Office, you can now run two windows simultaneously that are running the same application. This is perfect for those people who are doing something and they need to cross-check their files from another file.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 also got some upgrade inside including the Snapdragon 865+ processor inside and also the 5G capability. Other features include 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage with UFS 3.1. It also comes with Samsung DeX wireless connection, 4500mAh battery, and a Super Fast Charging.
Galaxy Z Premiere Service
If you’re getting the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, it will come with on-demand concierge support that will let you have door-to-door pick-ups and one-on-one with the experts. It will also automatically be enrolled in Samsung Care+ in where it provides one-time device protection against accidental damage within one year of the purchasing date.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 will be available in the Philippines in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze this September 25 for select Sasmung Online Partners and October 2 for Authorized SAmsung stores with pre-orders this September 12 to 24, 2020.
