Although the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has no confirmed release date, you can watch this video review. Samsung finally confirmed the follow-up to the beleaguered first-generation Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, earlier this month, but the phone is not yet out.
Samsung offered to reveal more on September 1. Until that, though, at least one Z Fold 2 seems to have made it into the world because a Chinese YouTube channel already has published a summary of the upcoming foldable smartphone (via SamMobile).
One exciting new feature that it looks like you’re going to be able to use the front display of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 as a viewfinder for the back cameras. That could make the Z Fold 2 very convenient for vloggers, or perfect for taking a high-quality selfie. You cannot do that with the first Fold. So that ability alone can be a significant improvement for some.
The video clearly shows the “Flex Mode” of the Z Fold 2, a feature brought over by Samsung from its flip phone-like Galaxy Z Flip, which allows you to view unique content on each display while using one side of the mobile device as a stand.
Sadly, however, it seems when the Z Fold 2 is fully unfolded, you still will be able to see a visible crease down the center of the panel, while its screen is protected with ultra-thin glass, rather than the plastic as in the first Fold. Although the Galaxy Z Flip is an excellent phone and uses ultra-thin glass, and also has a crease as well.
If you’re interested in what the Z Fold 2 would look like when it rolls out, we would suggest that you watch the entire video while we’re all waiting for September 1st.
