Samsung’s new foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, is slated for release early next month. A recently leaked firmware already reveals a lot of information about the new flagship model. There are also further details on the smaller external display.
The well-known Leaker Max Weinbach found out. While there have been many leaks regarding the foldable inner display, little information has been shared on the outer screen so far. String names in the firmware that leaked about three weeks ago suggest that the front display has an aspect ratio of 25: 9 and a built-in punch-hole camera. The firmware also shows that the outer screen can be used to use the main camera on the back. This allows users to take a photo without first having to open the smartphone.
Improvements in video recording
In addition, Max Weinbach has found further improvements in the firmware. In professional video mode, users should be able to select the microphone used for audio recording. With the Galaxy Z Flip 2, there is the option to record 8K video in 21: 9 format. The smartphone should be equipped with cover support and limit the display on the front display to a certain area as soon as the device is surrounded by a protective cover.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, which is also known as the model number SM-F916, is to be presented as part of an unpacked event on August 5. On the same day, the South Korean electronics manufacturer could also present the Galaxy Note 20, the Galaxy Buds Live, and another foldable. When the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will finally be launched is still unclear. According to current information, mass production is scheduled to begin in September, so the device would be available in October.
