The Samsung Galaxy Fold is a first-gen bendable phablet with a possible successor that is now thought to be called the Z Fold2 5G on its launch. A prominent leaks blog claims to have the latest renders on this device. These all-angle images may confirm a new design and an improved main screen for the ultra-premium foldable.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

The predictions made about the Galaxy Fold's successor have evolved considerably in the months running up to its launch. This just starts at its name: it was originally thought to be simply called the Fold 2; however, subsequent reports hint that it is in fact to go under the emerging Galaxy Z umbrella instead. The latest alleged hands-on leak appears to confirm it will in fact be introduced as the Z Fold2 5G, in fact.

This supposed photo shows some of the device's boot animation, and, thus, the main screen. However, a new leak purports to show the "Z Fold2" in considerably more of its glory. These renders are also the first to confirm IceUniverse's earlier suggestion that it will come with a rear camera set-up much like that associated with the also-impending Galaxy Note 20 series. 

To this end, there are large discrete circles for 3 main shooters visible on the putative foldable's rear panel. It is also depicted in closed, "book" and "tablet" modes, thus corroborating additional leaks that point to a 'full-frame' secondary display and a main screen with refined bezels and punch-holes for selfie cameras.

These SuperAMOLED panels are thought to measure 6.23 and 7.7 inches respectively. The new renders also have a hinge-on angle, which somehow gives the impression of increased thickness compared to that of the original Fold.

Finally, the new images also show what this Z Fold2 might look like in Samsung's new Mystic Bronze and Black finishes. They may be confirmed or denied at the Galaxy Unpacked event, which takes place on August 5, 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
