Galaxy Fold 2 reportedly enters mass production, could be unveiled in August

Peter, 27 May 2020

A South Korean publication reports that Samsung has begun mass-producing the Galaxy Fold 2. Given the timing, a release in August seems likely. It’s possible that we’ll get official details about the phone as early as June (Samsung officially confirmed only a vague H2 launch window for the Galaxy Fold 2 and Note20).

The insiders (citing component orders from Samsung) believe that the Galaxy Fold 2 will use Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), just like the Z Flip. It's allegedly the same UTG by Schott and Dowoo Insys.

The new Fold is 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, several times more than the original Fold last year.

Yesterday we saw a patent that describes how Samsung plans to waterproof foldable phones. However, it’s not guaranteed that the Fold 2 will be waterproof, Korean sources even say that Samsung is keeping the original plastic screen cover (polyimide) as a back up in case the UTG plans fall through.
