While the excitement is high regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup, the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is also getting its share of the excitement. In fact, we recently saw the device in live images. We know that the device will feature a vertically-folding clamshell design.
New information from a reliable leakster on Twitter suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will sport the Snapdragon 855 chipset. This will be a letdown to many who expected it to launch with the new Snapdragon 865 chipset.
It is not clear why Samsung would go for the older chip over the latest Snapdragon 865. However, we believe that it could simply be that Samsung already started serious work on the Galaxy Fold 2 even before the launch of the Snapdragon 865 chipset.
Also in the tweet, the leakster @ishanagarwal24 stated that the upcoming device with model number SM-F700F will sport a 10MP front camera. It may just be the same module that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ use.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 may launch alongside the Galaxy S20 on February 11, not on February 18 as earlier speculated. The Fold 2 may launch with a price tag under $1,000. If it indeed does, then it will likely sell out very fast. The first-gen Galaxy Fold sold out in five minutes in China sometime last year.
It is only a matter of time before we get official confirmation of all these specs.
