- Samsungâ€™s Galaxy Z Fold 2 appears to have surfaced in a small press image on Weibo.
- It appears to confirm the large outer screen and other key details.
- It would share a lot in common with the Galaxy Note 20.
A tiny image posted on Weibo (via Ishan Agarwal and Ice Universe) appears to show a rendered press image of the next-generation foldable. The picture lines up with past rumors, including a relatively uninterrupted folding screen (reportedly 7.7 inches with a 120Hz refresh and hole-punch camera) and a large external screen (6.2 inches).
Not surprisingly, the leaked device bears a strong resemblance to the Galaxy Note 20, its expected stablemate. Youâ€™ll find a large camera bump on the back â€” only two cameras are visible, but there may be three. The Z Fold 2 depicted here also comes in the same â€œMystic Bronzeâ€� hue the Note 20 is poised to use.

Earlier rumors suggested the phone would use the older Snapdragon 855 chip, although we wouldnâ€™t rule out an upgrade to the 865 found in the Galaxy S20 family. It might also have 5G data, faster 25W charging, and the smoother-feeling ultra-thin glass first found in the Galaxy Z Flip.
The new leaks donâ€™t shed new light on the Z Fold 2â€™s price or availability. While early claims had the device costing less than the $1,980 ofÂ its predecessor, recent reports have suggested it might cost slightly more. A price hike wouldnâ€™t be shocking given the design improvements and the still-high costs of foldable displays. Even so, this could still leave the second-gen phone out of reach for many.
