Samsung will host the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event on August 5. At its annual event, the company will showcase a wide range of new devices. The new lineup will include premium Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Buds Live earbuds. Another highlight of the event is going to be Galaxy Z Fold 2, the successor to the last year's foldable phone.

Ahead of the event, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has made an unofficial appearance on the web. Unlike the sketchy leaks in the past, the latest gives a closer look at a live foldable phone. The boot screen also confirms the presence of 5G support in the phone.

As you can see in the image, Galaxy Z Fold 2 looks identical to the last year's foldable phone. There are subtle tweaks. The design appears to have a more flat-like feel to it.

There is a punch-hole camera on the front as well. If the image is to be believed, this is a fine upgrade over the predecessor which had a larger notch. Moreover, the punch-hole module seems to be trendier as seen on a variety of budget, mid-range, and premium Android smartphones.

Another interesting takeaway from the new leak is that the next Samsung foldable phone will indeed be called Galaxy Z Fold 2. In case you did not know, Samsung added “Z” moniker to its foldable phones line up with Galaxy Z Flip and the recently launched Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

Based on rumours so far, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be available at the same launch price as the predecessor. To help the uptake of the device, Samsung is going to launch a cheaper 256GB variant as well.

You can expect Samsung's new foldable phone to have the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+/Exynos 992 processor. The phone will offer at least five cameras. On the inside and outside, it will have a 10-megapixel sensor. The triple rear camera setup is said to feature a 64-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens.

We're likely to find out more details about the Z Fold 2 and other Samsung devices in the coming days.
