South Korean mobile giant Samsung is planning to sell its next foldable phone Galaxy Fold 2 before its flagship phone Galaxy S11. A new report on Yonhap, a Korean publication suggests that Galaxy Fold 2 is could go air before Galaxy S11. Previously, there were rumors that Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy S11 would be unveiled at the same event. It is assumed based on the launch of Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 which were launched at the same event early this year. But now it seems that Samsung is ready to put Fold 2 up for sale before S11.
This launch of Fold 2 earlier than the Prescribed date could be because of the increasing competition in the foldable mobiles section. Motorola has launched it’s Motorola Razr 2019 just a few weeks back. Motorola recently opined that due to the high demand for Moto Razr 2019, the retail launch has been delayed. Now Samsung is trying to fill this gap so that it could bring up Fold 2’s sales.
A couple of days ago we got to see some pictures of Fold 2, wherein we got the information that Fold 2 has a clamshell form factor. The images also reveal that it is not a proper flagship mobile from Samsung. According to these rumors, the price tag is around $1000 which indicates that Fold 2 will mostly be a mid-range device. The pictures also show us that it has only 2 cameras in the rear which could possibly be 108MP primary and 5X zoom sensors which are on Galaxy S11.
We need to wait until Samsung actually reveals Fold 2 before S11. The expected date of the reveal is not far as Samsung’s next unboxing event is on February 11, 2020. As the date is not far, we could get to know if Samsung actually is planning to release Fold 2 before S11. Its a matter of 5 weeks to wait and we would know for sure.
