Samsung Galaxy Z fold 2 has been launched today at an online event, the company latest foldable smartphone.
It features a 7.6-inch QXGA+ Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED screen on the inside with 120Hz refresh rate, Samsung Ultra Thin Glass and features a 6.2-inch HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity Flex display on the outside.
Like on the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, there’s a sweeper structure in the gap between the body and the hinge to keep dust and particles out and prevent damage with time. Samsung has also managed to make the gap even smaller than the Z Flip’s.

The camera, video call UI, the gallery, calendar, as well as partner apps like YouTube will be able to recognize the main display and show actionable content on the other portion of the screen.
