Samsung was said to be working on a Galaxy Fold successor which was later known to be the Galaxy Z Flip. However, a new report now suggests that the South Korean manufacturer is preparing for a “true” Galaxy Fold successor which will have 5G onboard as well as its proprietary S Pen stylus which is only offered with the company’s Galaxy Note handsets.
The revelation was made by reliable tipster Max Weinbach who went on to add that this Galaxy Fold successor will launch by June this year. Other sources have mentioned that the new Galaxy Fold will have the octa-core Snapdragon 865 SoC, an 8-inch display, and ultra-thin glass. It is also rumored that the phone will have a 108MP camera sensor on the back, which is likely the same sensor as the one we expect to see on the Galaxy S20.
For those unaware, although the Galaxy Z Flip is launching next month, it’s not considered a successor to the original Galaxy Fold due to the change in form factors. Keeping this in mind, the Galaxy Fold 2 (or whatever Samsung decides to call it) will likely bear the same design as the predecessor, thus explaining the massive 8-inch display real estate. Given that there’s no confirmation on this yet, we recommend you to take this with a grain of salt.
The original Galaxy Fold was recalled shortly after release as the company had to deal with some design and structural issues. The company is expected to have ironed out those concerns by now and is said to be gearing up for the release of the successor. Given how exorbitantly priced the predecessor was, fans will hope that things will be different with the Galaxy Fold 2.
