A Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 leak suggests the successor to the first foldable smartphone will receive a number of improvements, including a larger front display and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus camera system.
Display Supply Chain Consultant founder Ross Young (opens in new tab) shared a series of Galaxy Fold 2 specs on Twitter on April 20. Max Weinbach of XDA Developers elaborated on several of Young's details, too, giving us one of our best proposals yet of how the next known foldable phone will come together.

According to Young, the Galaxy Fold 2's front display will receive a much needed expansion. In our Samsung Galaxy Fold review, we thought the tiny, 4.6-inch preview screen limited the phone's versatility. The new display will measure 6.23 inches, making it as usable as any of the best big phones when shut.
Meanwhile the Fold 2's interior display will span 7.59 inches, which is larger than the original model's 7.3-inch screen. The Fold 2's unfolded display will also sport a 2213 x 1689-pixel resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, if Young's leak is accurate.
Based on Young's specs, Ben Geskin mocked up what the Fold 2 could look like.

When asked about Young's reliability, Weinbach called the DSSC founder, "a crazy good display analyst."
Weinbach piggybacked on Young's specs, answering several thread questions and reminded us the Fold 2 will receive the S20 Plus camera set up.

Young said we'll learn more next week about the Galaxy Fold 2's price and cameras, too.
Rumors this far out of an official launch should be taken with a grain of salt, but both Weinbach and Young's speculations fall in line with previous Galaxy Fold 2 leaks. The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to debut in late summer along with the Galaxy Note 20.
