The Galaxy Fold launched last year was the first foldable smartphone by Samsung. It features two displays, one smaller unit on the outside known as ‘cover display’ and another foldable, flexible panel inside, which turns the handset into a small-sized tablet. The South Korean technology giant is yet to announce its successor, but long before that, rumours-based concept renders of this upcoming foldable have emerged on the internet.
Windows United, a German website, shares these new rumour-based Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 renders. Before describing the design, we would like to inform you that these are not similar to the near to perfect 3D CAD renders by @OnLeaks. Instead, these renders are merely conceptual as they are created based on what the Galaxy Fold 2 might bring to the table according to the rumours so far.
The website imagines the Galaxy Fold 2 to sport a larger cover display with an ‘Infinity-V notch.’ It looks much better than the one present on the original with a broader forehead and chin. The biggest fuss of the current-gen Galaxy Fold is how tiny its outer display is, and thus, it will be a welcome change if Samsung nails this design but maybe with a centred punch-hole instead of a notch for the selfie camera.

As for the central inner display, the Galaxy Fold has a big weird cutout at the top. But these unofficial Galaxy Fold 2 concept renders have a clean internal foldable display with a single punch-hole (Infinity-O) at the top left corner for another front-facing camera. Also, this panel is assumed to have support for S-Pen, which could be a game-changer for long-time Galaxy Note users. Lastly, these Galaxy Fold 2 renders feature a Penta-camera setup arranged in a rectangular array similar to the newly launched Samsung Galaxy S20 Series.

As mentioned earlier, there is little chance of the Galaxy Fold 2 to feature this design. But one thing we can surely expect on the successor to the Galaxy Fold is the new UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass), which debuted on the Galaxy Z Flip clamshell foldable smartphone launched this year.
