Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 release date Specs and price

Previous Galaxy Fold 2 release date rumors pointed to a launch in the first half of 2020, which is a rather vague timeline. However, the latest reports suggest it could land in February. That’s a claim we’ve heard from multiple sources, with the most likely date being February 18.

However, other sources suggest it could be announced in April, so we’re not sure yet, but the first half of 2020 is looking likely in any case.

That said, the original Fold didn’t ultimately go on sale until September 2019, so February or April next year could be a tad early. Though the Samsung Galaxy Fold was announced way back in February, it only hit stores so late due to delays, so it is possible that we’ll see the Galaxy Fold 2 that soon.

When it does arrive it could have a more palatable price too, with one source pointing to 1,000,000KRW (Korean Won), or about $837 / £640 / AU$1,230.

Meanwhile, the same reports suggesting the Fold 2 could arrive in April also say that it could come with a price tag of about $1,500 (around £1,165 / AU$2,197).

In comparison, the Galaxy Fold is $1,980 / £1,800 (around AU$3,350). So if either of those prices are true it’s definitely a better price than the original Fol

A lower price

The Samsung Galaxy Fold costs $1,980 / £1,800 (around AU$3,350), making it twice the price of a typical flagship. When you consider that this is one of the very first foldables and offers around twice the screen of a typical flagship, the price starts to make sense, but it still puts it out of most peoples’ reach.

So for the Galaxy Fold 2 we want to see a substantial reduction in price. It’s still likely to cost more than, say, the Samsung Galaxy S11, but being a second-generation product it’s possible that Samsung will be able to push the price down below its current level. It will need to if it wants foldables to become remotely mainstream.
