Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is the upcoming (and rumoured) successor to the original Galaxy Fold, which was the company’s first foldable phone. It was initially expected to debut in August, but fresh reports from South Korea claim it will be unveiled in September. A Galaxy Fold 2 render from April revealed a punch-hole cutout at the extreme right and S Pen support. Now, noted tipster Ice Universe has shared yet another render of the smartphone with slight design changes. The punch-hole cutout on the main display is now slightly pushed to the left, instead of being to the extreme right. It has also has narrower bezels on all sides.
While the leaker hasn’t revealed the Cover Display, another tipster Ben Geskin has shared another set of Galaxy Fold 2 renders. This shows the cover display with a centre-positioned punch-hole cutout and main cameras with LED flash in a rectangular module on the back. Ice Universe replied has to Geskin’s tweet claiming the edges will be sharper but not rounded. Furthermore, Geskin says the outer display will be slightly wider this time around compared to the original Fold.
