The characteristics of the expected phone, which is the third of its kind foldable, at a major conference held over the Internet.
The “Galaxy Z Fold 2” phone was previously announced on August 5, but the detailed specifications of the device or its launch date were not revealed at the time.

Its main screen also supports a refresh rate of 120 Hz, allowing users to enjoy smoother movements and transitions
Samsung has used Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 screen, as it has on the previous Galaxy Z Flip, and has applied hideaway hinge “sweeper technology” to provide stronger durability and better dust resistance.
