Samsung unveiled the second-generation Galaxy Fold, dubbed the Galaxy Z Fold2 at it’s Unpacked event earlier in August along with a host of other devices. However, while the firm spoke about the hinge improvements and showed off the larger cover display, a lot of the remaining information was still under wraps. The company today announced a second part of the Unpacked event, aimed at showing off the Z Fold2 in full and providing price and availability details.
Now, the South Korean giant’s UK website has a listing for the Z Fold2 for pre-order (spotted by Max Weinbach). The device costs £1,799 – around £100 lower than its predecessor – and will begin shipping on September 17. While much about other specifications are not available yet, users get a device with 256GB internal storage, down from the 512GB offered by its predecessor. Other specifications include a larger 6.2-inch cover display, an increase over the 4.6-inch unit on the original Fold, a triple camera setup at the back, dual punch-hole cameras for each display – both of which run high refresh rate panels–, and a Snapdragon 865+ 5G-capable SoC.
While the device packs a punch in comparison to its predecessor in terms of features and improvements to the internals, the slightly lower price is interesting to see. Usually, the U.S. pricing matches that of the European or UK variants, meaning that the foldable could be sold at a $1,880 or lower in the U.S. since the original model was priced at $1,980.
It is not clear if the firm posted the listing on the U.K website by accident, or if a pre-event announcement is under way, with the specs and other specifics being planned to be unveiled at the September 1 event.
