With a larger Cover Screen1 and massive Main Screen, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G combines solid design and expert craftsmanship with intuitive new features for a unique mobile experience that offers the versatility that everyday life demands.
"Our journey towards the next generation of mobile devices is full of originality and innovation," said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, we closely listened to user feedback to ensure we were bringing meaningful improvements to the hardware, while also developing new innovations to enhance the user experience. Further strengthened by our industry-leading partnerships with Google and Microsoft, we're reshaping and redefining the possibilities of the mobile device experience."
New Refined Design
The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G pairs bold, premium design with advanced engineering so you can feel confident using it every day.
Complete and Immersive Content Experiences – A 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen2 provides maximum usability so you can check email, look up directions, or even watch your favourite content without needing to unfold your device every time. When unfolded, the massive 7.6-inch Main Screen3, with minimal bezels and notch-less Front Camera, immerses you with a 120Hz adaptable refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gameplay. To complete this premium viewing experience, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G comes with the best dynamic sound available on a Galaxy device to date, with enhanced stereo effect and clearer sound1 provided by high-dynamic dual speakers.
Solid Design and Expert Craftsmanship – The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is engineered with a sleek, unified design that delivers a smooth, high-end feel. Samsung Ultra Thin Glass is now also on the Main Screen, providing a more premium and refined feel for the display1. Its design is anchored by the Hideaway Hinge, which fits seamlessly into the device body with the CAM mechanism and enables free-standing capabilities4 that power all new Flex mode5 experiences. Galaxy Z Fold2 5G also employs sweeper technology - first introduced on the Galaxy Z Flip, this innovation works within the gap between the body and hinge housing to help repel dust and undesirable particles. As Galaxy Z Fold2 5G features a third-generation refined foldable design, the space for the sweeper structure is even smaller than on the Galaxy Z Flip. To achieve this, Samsung developed new innovative sweeper technology to help achieve the same level of protection in a smaller space – making for a slimmer1 form when the device is closed.
Customizable to Match Your Style – For those looking to stand out, Samsung is offering an online tool to customize your Galaxy Z Fold2 with four distinct Hideaway Hinge colors - Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Metallic Red, and Metallic Blue. Now you can create the Galaxy Z Fold2 that complements your unique style, adding a personalized touch to premium design6.

Or take your creativity one step further with Auto framing9. Whether you're jumping in on the latest social dance challenge or showing off your cooking skills, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G can record hands-free video and keeps the subject in focus even when it moves.
Features to Support Creativity – Rethink content capture by incorporating both the photographer and subject's perspective into getting the shot. Using the Main and Cover Screen at the same time with Dual Preview, both parties can see what's being captured. What's more, thanks to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G's Flex mode, take a high-quality selfie with the rear cameras with the Cover Screen acting as the viewfinder.
