Samsung has launched the second-gen Galaxy Fold smartphone at its Unpacked event tonight. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 builds on its predecessor’s design but with upgrades and some changes. It comes in two colour options of Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black, and will be available in select markets starting August 21.

The new Samsung foldable looks much like last year’s Galaxy Fold but one key change here is the punch-hole design. There’s a punch-hole camera on the exterior display and on the interior one as well. The hinge on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 also looks thicker, and the exterior display is also larger this time.
