A regulatory filing for the battery for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 was revealed this morning, making way for final confirmations of rumored specifications. We can now compares the vast majority of specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 1 to the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. The first was released in the year 2019 in relatively limited numbers. In 2020, we’ll see the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 released to a slightly wider audience.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 1 had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC with 12GB RAM. The newer Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be released with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with the same amount of RAM (12GB). The battery for the first phone was approximately 4380mAh – the Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to ring in at 4500mAh, according to regulatory filings this week.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold’s unfolded display was 7.3-inches diagonally – the new Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to unfold to a larger 7.7-inches diagonally. In some device lines in the past we’ve seen a larger display with the same amount of pixels, resulting in a lower pixel density. The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to expand the panel size AND increase the number of pixels – essentially cutting a larger piece of the same-density panel for this new device.
The camera array is expected to get the same upgrade, reflecting the power of the Samsung Galaxy S lineup. Where the first Galaxy Fold had the 12 + 12 + 16MP camera array, the Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to roll with a 64 + 16 + 13MP camera array. Frontside (inside) cameras are expected to be pretty much the same on the Fold 2 as they were on the first Fold.
