The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G crosses the US$2000 mark with ease in Europe
Samsung has finally unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G in full with an international launch, to be followed closely by pre-orders. Therefore, the second-gen flexible-display flagship's specs have finally been set in stone: it is a Snapdragon 865+ device (with no mention of Exynos), and will have just one 12GB RAM/256 internal storage SKU (in Germany, at least).
Samsung also went into more detail on what the Z Fold2 5G can do with all that processing power. Its version of Android 10-based One UI 2 has Microsoft, Android and in-house camera apps that are optimized for its form-factor: for example, when using Outlook, the inbox can be seen on one "pane" of the main 7.6-inch AMOLED display with the latest emails shown on the other.
However, Samsung has noted that not all apps will be compatible with the multi- and split-screen modes developed for the Z Fold2. Nevertheless, its audience may be most interested in its price at this stage. It has now been confirmed that the premium foldable has a recommended price of €1949 (US$2336). For this, the OEM offers the buyer access to its Galaxy Z Concierge service (as you might hope).
The device is available in its Mystic Black and Bronze shades, although the consumer also now has the option to assign accent colors in choices of Metallic Silver, Gold, Red or Blue to its hinge. That option is available via Samsung's regional web-store from today (September 1, 2020).
