This new foldable device improves the smartphone’s overall aesthetic, the hinge and the original Fold’s specs in several ways. Some of the new design elements include a hole-punch camera on the inner display, a new hinge that pushes out dirt from the inside of the device to avoid damaging the handset’s foldable display, and a more expansive outer screen.
The cover screen sports a 6.2-inch ‘Infinity-O’ display with a hole-punch camera, which is far superior to the awkward 4.6-inch display featured on the original Fold.
Also, in comparison to the first Fold, the inner screen on the Z Fold 2 is a 7.6-inch screen, whereas last year’s Fold features a 7.3-inch panel.
While there are many differences between the two generations of handsets, what’s most similar is the pricing. When the Fold launched in Canada, it had a $2,599 CAD price tag. On the other hand, the Z Fold 2 costs $2,779.99, making both devices extremely expensive, and the newer foldable smartphone $180 more than its predecessor.
