Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is an Android-based foldable smartphone developed by Samsung Electronics for its Samsung Galaxy Z series, succeeding in the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

This is not just a foldable phone, it’s a movement waiting to begin. Samsung’s original Galaxy Fold was a concept with terrible execution, besieged by problems, and pitfalls at nearly every turn.

Samsung had to redesign the device after review models broke in multiple ways, causing the brand to lose distribution partners, drop color options, and deliver the foldable device four months late.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 isn’t a phone for everyone – its $2,000 (£1,799, AU$2,999) price puts it out of range for many. Although, it’s a device that deserves and demands your attention.
