On Samsung’s first folding screen smartphone, the company chose a design with a large, flexible screen with a small outside screen. However, it has been reported recently that Samsung may have two external displays for next year’s Galaxy Fold 2. Max Weinbach shared some information on Twitter, including a small auxiliary display included in the Galaxy Fold 2.

Weinbach is understood to have discovered the secret from the system UI of the One UI beta beta beta version of the Galaxy Note 9. The information is linked to a mysterious “Bloom” code name, which is suspected to refer to Galaxy Fold 2.
The charging animation implies a ‘bloom_front’, meaning the front auxiliary panel of the Galaxy Fold 2.
It has also been reported that the addition of this small sub-display will be rounded design, looks like a small pill, is expected to be able to present a variety of animation effects.
On that basis, Weinbach also confirmed that the Galaxy Fold 2 will support Samsung’s own Super Fast Charging solution, which supports at least 25W of wired charging power.
In fact, at this year’s developer conference (SDC 2019 at the end of last month), Samsung hinted at the arrival of the Galaxy Fold 2, more or less confirming the design of the machine.
The rendering shows that the Galaxy Fold 2 is a smart machine with a vertical folding design similar to Motorola’s newly released Moto Razr.
If the rendering is not a bluff, the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a punched screen front, as well as an ultra-narrow bezel, and the creases of the flexible screen will not be as obvious as the first model.
If all goes well, the Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be unveiled next February at the Mobile World Congress (MWC 2020) in Barcelona, along with the New Galaxy S11 series.
Of course, Samsung could still hold a grand launch for the Galaxy Fold 2 alone.
