The external display that Samsung calls a Cover Screen, is now a larger 6.2-inch Infinity-O display to provide maximum usability. Users can now check their emails, look up directions or even watch videos without needing to unfold the device every time.

When unfolded, a massive 7.6-inch Main Screen is unveiled with minimized bezels and notch-less front camera.

This display even supports up to a 120Hz adaptable refresh rate for smooth scrolling and gaming experience.

To complete the experience, Samsung says the Galaxy Z Fold2 comes with the best dynamic sound available on any Galaxy device to date. It features an enhanced stereo effect and clearer sound provided by high-dynamic dual speakers.

Samsung’s Ultra Thin Glass now covers the Main Screen, providing a premium and refined feel for the display. Its design is anchored by the Hideaway Hinge, which fits seamlessly into the device body with the CAM mechanism and enables free-standing capabilities that power all new Flex mode experiences.

The Galaxy Z Fold2 features a new innovative sweeper technology called the Hideaway Hinge. First introduced on the Galaxy Z Flip within the gap between the body and hinge housing, it’s job is to repel dust and undesirable particles from entering the internals. This new innovative sweeper makes the structure even smaller on the Galaxy Z Fold2 and manages to achieve the same level of protection in a smaller space.
