The Galaxy Fold’s collapsible screen is a technical breakthrough, but the huge notch on the inside screen and the huge border on the outside screen are widely criticized. However, this problem will be greatly improved in the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 2, with a punching design on the inside screen and a significant increase in the proportion of screens on the outside screen.
According to Max Weinbach, editor ofmedia XDA-Developers, based on a firmware analysis that has been leaked so far, Samsung has added 25:9 and 5:4 screen aspect ratios to the machine. The former is suitable for the external screen, while the latter is suitable for the internal screen.
Max tweeted that the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s exterior screen will have a 25:9 aspect ratio, meaning its border size will narrow further and the screen ratio will be further increased. The internal screen of the machine will be designed with punching screen.
He also revealed that you will be able to use the external screen as a viewfinder for the main camera, which means you can take pictures without turning on your phone. In addition, you’ll be able to use the outside screen as a viewfinder while taking a selfie with the main camera. In this mode, the internal screen with the device is turned off.
Max also found a lot of detail improvements in the leaked firmware code. For example, when recording professional videos, you can switch between a front microphone, a rear microphone, an omnidirectional microphone (both front and back), a Bluetooth microphone, or a USB microphone. 8K 21:9 video recording is also supported, and Single Take increases from 5 seconds to 15 seconds, allowing Samsung users to share their albums in QR QR codes.
