  • by IMAGE

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is the hottest piece of tech to launch this year. Here, we unpack its innovative features and incredible design.

It’s is not just a new device; it’s a whole new category, and possibly the most desirable piece of tech to launch in 2020.

Durable, intuitive, multi-functional and with 5G capability, when folded the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a phone; unfolded, it's a full, seamless, 7.6 inch screen tablet. Both ways, it’s a whole lot more…



Working, streaming, filming, gaming, graphing, grafting… the Galaxy Z Fold 2 works as smartly as you do, in everything you do. The two screens work seamlessly to create one experience whether you want convenience on the move, or the unfolded luxury of space and display. Alternatively, flex the inner screen for even more functionality.

As individual as you are, the innovative device springs to life with the touch of your unique fingerprint, scanned conveniently at the side and as simply as adjusting your grip. And this intuitive functionality continues throughout, supported by highest-speed 3.09GHz processor, 12GM of RAM and 256GB storage.


Unfold the Galaxy Z Fold 2 for a mobile experience unlike any other. By running multiple functions, screens and apps simultaneously, it keeps up with your multitasking so you can keep ahead. Two screens, outer and inner, work together for continuity and with double the refresh rate of the cover screen, the main 120Hz screen adapts its speed to the functions it’s running, delivering an ideal viewing experience.


You’re ready for whatever comes next with this smart phone as it comes with 5G capabilities. Connect to next-level entertainment, download and stream at HyperFast speed, or when you’re near a WiFi network, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 keeps you connected securely and quickly.



Multiple apps have plenty of space and power to run concurrently on the bright main screen, so you can work the way you want, at the speed you want. Sharing with others is also seamless, simply point to share files and photos.


The Galaxy Z Fold 2 defies physics. The Dynamic AMLOID 2X main screen is made from ultra-slim glass blended with soft and rigid layers of materials to offer spectacular performance whilst absorbing external shock. When unfolded to 180 degrees, the flush, seamless screen incorporates punch hole camera technology and minimised bezels for an uninterrupted view. Ultra-durable, the device has been tested to last through up to 200,000 folds and, at all times, proprietary sweeper technology embedded in the hinge is in action to remove dust and dirt from the device, fold after fold, day after day to help prevent corrosion.



Whether opting for a speedy selfie, or wanting studio-quality photography and video, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 works intuitively with you. Use the cover screen to capture a preview; shoot with the wave of a hand; select, edit, post on the tablet screen to make the most of every pixel. Camera and video functions, with 2208 x 1768 (QXGA+) display resolution, come with so many instinctual functions, it’s like they can read your mind.


Because battery life is key, this multifunctional smartphone has intelligently adjusted the internal handset battery to keep running efficiently whatever the challenge. Plug in for super-fast charging or set on a wireless charger to get back to 100 per cent asap. It also supports Wireless Power Share for other devices too. The phone is available on the Samsung Online Store for a recommended retail price of €2,099.
