  • Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 appears to have surfaced in a small press image on Weibo.
  • It appears to confirm the large outer screen and other key details.
  • It would share a lot in common with the Galaxy Note 20.

You might not have to wait until Unpacked on August 5 to know what Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 will look like.

A tiny image posted on Weibo (via Ishan Agarwal and Ice Universe) appears to show a rendered press image of the next-generation foldable. The picture lines up with past rumors, including a relatively uninterrupted folding screen (reportedly 7.7 inches with a 120Hz refresh and hole-punch camera) and a large external screen (6.2 inches).

Not surprisingly, the leaked device bears a strong resemblance to the Galaxy Note 20, its expected stablemate. You’ll find a large camera bump on the back — only two cameras are visible, but there may be three. The Z Fold 2 depicted here also comes in the same “Mystic Bronze” hue the Note 20 is poised to use.

Earlier rumors suggested the phone would use the older Snapdragon 855 chip, although we wouldn’t rule out an upgrade to the 865 found in the Galaxy S20 family. It might also have 5G data, faster 25W charging, and the smoother-feeling ultra-thin glass first found in the Galaxy Z Flip.

The new leaks don’t shed new light on the Z Fold 2’s price or availability. While early claims had the device costing less than the $1,980 of its predecessor, recent reports have suggested it might cost slightly more. A price hike wouldn’t be shocking given the design improvements and the still-high costs of foldable displays. Even so, this could still leave the second-gen phone out of reach for many.
