Samsung is expected to introduce a new foldable smartphone - tentatively called the Galaxy Fold 2 - at their Unpacked 2020 event on February 11. The smartphone is tipped to feature huge design changes from the first-gen Galaxy Fold. It is rumoured to drop the first-gen Galaxy Fold aesthetics in favour of a Motorola Razr (2019)-like clamshell form factor. Now, a new report as allegedly revealed more information about the upcoming device.

According to a report from MySmartPrice, Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could be powered by a generation-old Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. Further, tipster Ishan Agarwal tweeted Galaxy Fold 2 will get the Snapdragon 855 SoC in all regions. For reference, Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy S20/Galaxy S11 series, which is tipped to be powered by the latest silicon - Snapdragon 865 chipset. 

Moreover, Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is tipped to sport a 10MP selfie shooter, which is likely to borrow its hardware from the 10MP selfie camera on the Galaxy Note10. Unlike the original Galaxy Fold, Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is said to turn to ultra-thin glass as the display covering. Industry insiders say that using ultra-thin glass would make mass production of such panels even more expensive than they are at the moment. 

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is said to reduce, if not eliminate, the crease. The next Samsung foldable phone is rumoured to be made available for sale "immediately" after its official unveiling. However, whether or not it will go on sale in markets outside South Korea before the end of February is not yet known. 

Samsung Galaxy S20/Galaxy S11 trio is expected to come in 6.2/6.4 inches, 6.7 inches, 6.9 inches display sizes. More rumours are expected to reveal the specifications of upcoming smartphones leading up to the February 11 event.
