Now that Samsung has launched its second foldable smartphone, the rumor mill has started buzzing about its upcoming third one.

Just yesterday we got word about the possible display size and release date of the alleged Galaxy Fold 2. Now, we have more details about the phone’s possible camera specs, design, and colorways.

XDA‘s Max Weinbach, who was responsible for leaking a bunch of information about the Galaxy S20 trio pre launch, seems to have his sights set on the Galaxy Fold 2 now. Weinbach revealed on Twitter that the Fold 2 will feature the same camera setup as the Galaxy S20 Plus.

Galaxy Fold 2: front cover is infinity V display. Main is either hole punch or under display camera. New form of SPen. S20+ camera setup. Ceramic and stainless steel. Will come in Blue, Silver, Gold, Pink, Black.

This means that the phone could get a 12MP wide-angle sensor, a 64MP telephoto lens, a 12MP ultra-wide shooter, and a VGA time-of-flight sensor. By extension, it would also support 3x “hybrid optical” zoom and 30x hybrid zoom. A 10MP selfie camera can be expected up front.

Weinbach doesn’t really go into a lot of detail, but says that the Galaxy Fold 2’s outside screen will come with Samsung’s Infinity-V display and it will have a new form of the S-Pen. He also apparently knows that it’ll have blue, silver, gold, pink, and black colorways.

We’re not really sure how Weinbach came by this information so early, but he’s been right about a lot of Samsung leaks in the past. If this one turns out to be true, we can expect the Galaxy Fold 2 to borrow more features and characteristics from the Galaxy S20 series. Meanwhile, the phone is also rumored to bring some new hardware such as an under-screen selfie camera which we haven’t seen on any commercial phones until now. But it sounds like the inclusion of this tech isn’t guaranteed just yet.

It’s too early to say anything more about the so-called Galaxy Fold 2. Although, we do hope its display gets better scratch resistance than current foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Flip.
