The very extravagance of another expensive foldable smartphone could seem foolish to some at a time when companies, including Samsung, seem to face a regression on cheaper devices like the new Galaxy A51 priced $400 that’s currently on sale.
As per numerous speculations, the Galaxy Fold 2 would work off the original mold, nipping, tucking, and refining as it develops. Most people would expect the same design that puts the larger folding screen on the inside of the device that opens like a book, and the smaller one on the outside cover, protecting the inner panel from additional damage.
According to the latest rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 could come with a killer accessory, a stylus, similar to the Galaxy Note series of phones. The S Pen would make the foldable device much more like a tablet and multitasking tool, and help differentiate it from the rest.
When it comes to price, Samsung is known to cut the costs a few months after launch, at least on its official website, but it prefers to increase the value of its premium devices with bundled deals.
