Just like the 5G-enabled Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra, as well as the Galaxy Tab S7, S7+, Buds Live, and Galaxy Watch 3, Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy Fold sequel will see daylight on August 5 at an unusual (and unusually crowded) virtual Unpacked event.
A pretty lengthy wait suggesting tight supply
While it’s certainly a little disappointing to hear we might need to wait six weeks or so to see the massively upgraded device actually released following its August 5 announcement, we won’t act shocked by this news speculation.
A not-so-surprising price and an awesome spec sheet
As such, we couldn’t have realistically expected a price drop for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G compared to its 4G LTE-only predecessor, which makes today’s rumor of a KRW 2.398 million MSRP in Samsung’s homeland sound pretty encouraging. That’s exactly how much the OG Galaxy Fold normally costs in South Korea, making us hopeful that the 5G-capable Z Fold 2 5G will be officially priced at the same $1,980 tag as its forerunner in the US.
