Galaxy Z Fold 2 Is Not Waterproof, But It Has An Ace Up Its Sleeve
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is not waterproof, but it has much better protection against water than its predecessor did. Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Fold 2 yesterday, kind of, but it didn’t really elaborate on what we’ll talk about here.
Before we start, it’s worth noting that the company did talk about the device. It showed the phone and everything, while releasing some additional details, but it did not talk about its specs. It also did not share anything regarding its pricing or anything of the sort. More details will follow at the beginning of September.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is not waterproof, but it comes with ‘Anti-Erosion Waterproof Coating”
That being said, let’s talk about ‘Anti-Erosion Waterproof Coating’. That is something the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is equipped with, according to Max Weinbach, as a well-known tipster.
As already mentioned, Samsung did not talk about that during its Unpacked event. Mr. Weinbach says that this does not make the phone waterproof. It should, however, be able to survive a dunk without a problem.
Samsung did talk about an improved hinge during its event, and a system in place that should keep the dirt out of the hinge. The phone also comes with a new display, this time made out of glass (UTG), but it still has a plastic layer on top.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 also looks much better than its predecessor. The device has considerably thinner bezels, especially around its secondary display.
Both of its displays include a display camera hole, though a rather small one. The whole device simply seems considerably more advanced than its predecessor, and that’s a good thing.
We don’t know all the details just yet
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will also include improved internals. Samsung did not share the details just yet, but it will offer flagship-grade specifications, no doubt about that.
Both of its display will be OLED panels, while the one on the inside is also expected to offer 120Hz refresh rate. The phone will include plenty of RAM, and the same goes for storage as well.
Android 10 will come pre-installed on the device, along with Samsung’s custom UI. A large battery is expected as well, along with fast charging, and fast wireless charging.
Samsung will release more details at the beginning of next month. In fact, the phone’s full announcement may arrive at that time. It is also worth noting that the phone is expected to cost around $2,000.
