For the first time outside of press renders, the new second-generation foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been captured on camera in regulatory listings showing us exactly what the hardware really looks like.
Recent lists on the Chinese regulatory website TENAA laid bare the new Galaxy Z Fold 2 design, something that was sorely missing during the Unpacked Launch event (via GizmoChina). Samsung announced that it would not share any more details about the device until September 1, but having gone through Chinese regulatory systems, we can at least see how well the actual hardware on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 aligns with all the marketing material.
Unfortunately, that’s all you’ll get as there are no detailed specifications listed for the Z Fold 2 yet on the TENAA listings. The regulatory body, however, has stated that the model number of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is SM-F9160—which is useful for updates, and what not.
This time around the main talking point is the larger displays, which look much more like a “second-generation” than the original Galaxy Fold. The front panel has a much more “workable” area that will certainly make this a much more desirable folding area than its predecessor — let’s just hope that all problems will now be resolved 100%.
Until these regulatory listings, we already knew that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 would display a 6.2-inch external display and a 7.6-inch internal display with a punch hole on the right side of the internal display. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset is powered, and the rear triple camera setup will match the Note 20 series setup.
Pre-orders are set to be open in the weeks ahead but the price is not fully known. Rumors suggest it’ll set you back between $1,780 and $1,980—meaning it’s like old brethren and the Note 20 series this foldable second-generation wallet cleanser will be a real one.
