The Galaxy Fold 2 May Arrive in August

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2

If reports by a South Korean publication are to be believed, then Samsung has already begun mass-producing the Galaxy Fold 2. Given the timing of this news, it is possible that we are looking at a launch in August.

It is also quite possible that Samsung might reveal details about the new device as early as June. Samsung has officially only confirmed a vague H2 launch window for the Galaxy Fold 2 and Note20.

According to the report, insiders believe that the Galaxy Fold 2 will use Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG), and it is allegedly the same UTG by Schott and Dowoo Insys. The new Fold device is also expected to cost less, despite upgrading to a 120Hz screen. The market forecasts suggest that Samsung will ship 2.5-3 million units this year, which is actually quite a jump from last year.

There was also a patent that describes how Samsung plans to waterproof foldable phones. However, it’s not guaranteed that the Fold 2 will be waterproof, and some Korean reports have stated that Samsung is keeping the original plastic screen cover (polyimide) as a back-up for the device.
