Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 leak details triple-camera setup and lower price tag

Samsung Galaxy Fold

A new leak surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 has provided more details about its price and camera specifications. As per the leak from Ross Young, founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, the Galaxy Fold 2 will feature a triple-camera setup at the rear with dual OIS. This will include a primary 12MP shooter, a 16MP ultra-wide, and a 64MP shooter for offering hybrid zoom.

While not mentioned, the primary 12MP shooter would likely be similar to the one that Samsung uses on its Galaxy S20 and S20+. The sensor has large 1.8um pixels with f/1.8 aperture and OIS. The use of a 16MP ultra-wide would be an interesting choice since Samsung switched to a larger 12MP ultra-wide sensor on the Galaxy S20 series. As for the 64MP sensor, it would allow the Galaxy Fold 2 to offer hybrid zoom as well as record 8K videos like the Galaxy S20 series.

As for price, the Galaxy Fold 2 will seemingly be priced between $1780 and $1980. Samsung is apparently looking to boost the volumes of the Fold 2 and intends to price it around $100 lower than the original Fold. This is in line with previous rumors which also claimed that the Galaxy Fold 2 could be cheaper than its predecessor. The lower price tag would be there despite Samsung including a bigger screen, S-Pen, improved camera setup, and 5G connectivity on the Galaxy Fold 2.

A leak from earlier this month had detailed that the Galaxy Fold 2 would come with a bigger, 120Hz primary display, ultra-thin glass, S-Pen support, and more.

The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be launched alongside the Galaxy Note20 series in August this year. The device will then start shipping from September.
