The NFC certification doesn’t reveal much about the smartphone. The other two smartphones said to release soon by Samsung have also received this NFC certification in the past weeks. As per credible tipster Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series and Galaxy Z Fold 2 launch event will be on August 5th. This is all in speculation since he tweeted.

As far as the designs and looks go, Fold 2 is said to be similar to its predecessor but with some upgrades which can be expected over its original. It will mostly be under the expensive premium phones but we can hope for it to be worth the money with new features and better build.

We’re expecting Samsung to stick to the book-style vertical fold like the original Galaxy Fold. But there can be changes in the design as it fails to hold the weight of its stylus, unlike Galaxy Note’s devices. It is rumoured to have a 7.7″ display with a cover display of 6.23″ and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Also in speculations are the chipset involved in the smartphone to be 865G along with a huge battery power of 4500/5000mAh. Though, the NFC certifications confirm the 5G and 25W charging capability. There have been rumours of the phone having a hole-punch display and to be the first in Samsung to have in-display selfie camera. Largely speculated is the idea that it will be much bigger than its predecessor and have a better fold design.

The pricing of this foldable phone by Samsung is expected to be expensive as its predecessor. But one can speculate it to be lower than $1,980. It is also said to be carrying the latest version of the in-house One UI software overlay.


Samsung is expected to hold an online Unpacked event on August 5th, where it plans to launch the Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Flip 5G, and the Galaxy Fold successor.
