Galaxy Z Fold 2 teased by T-Mobile, crease and all

We already know much about how the Galaxy Z Fold 2 looks like, thanks to Samsung's own teaser, but that doesn't exactly give us an idea of how the phone will actually look like in real life. Samsung did put out an official teaser starring BTS but it was so brief and staged that it was hard to get a true feel for the phone.
