Samsung will be announcing a new foldable smartphone alongside the Galaxy Note20 series, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3, and Galaxy Buds Live on Aug. 5. Initial rumors dubbed the device as Galaxy Z Fold, but newer reports revealed that it could be called Galaxy Z Fold 2. A leaked image of the device was shared by a Twitter user via Max Weinbach. It confirms that it will indeed break cover as Galaxy Z Fold 2. Also, it gives a look at the refreshed inner display of the Z Fold 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold that debuted last year came with a 7.3-inch inner display. A notch was placed at the top-right corner of the screen. It housed a dual-camera setup.
Due to the glare from the logo on display, the design of the internal screen is not clearly visible in the leaked shot. However, it does seem to show that the South Korean company has done away with the notch. Instead of the notch, it appears to feature a punch-hole for the front cameras. The design appears to match with the following leaked render of the Z Fold 2 that appeared last month.

Rumors have it that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 7.59-inch internal AMOLED display that supports 2213 x 1689 pixels resolution and 372ppi pixel density. The internal display is said to support 120Hz refresh rate. The display cutout could be featuring a 10-megapixel front camera.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is rumored to come with a 6.23-inch cover display with slim bezels around it. It could be a 60Hz screen that may produce 2267 x 819 pixels resolution. It is also expected to sport a punch-hole design.
