Samsung to share more Galaxy Z Fold 2 info September 1, ditching IFA 2020

Samsung will officially reveal the details on Galaxy Z Fold 2 on September 1st.

However, this means that Samsung won’t be attending the annual Internationale Funkausstellung (better known as IFA) Berlin.

IFA Berlin is still happening this year; the tech show, akin to MWC and CES, will take place September 3rd to 5th.

Some companies, like Qualcomm, are planning to attend the event, even though there’s still the risk of the novel coronavirus. This year, IFA isn’t open to the public like normal, and only plans to allow 1,000 people to attend each section of the event each day, according to CNET. Typically, IFA has nearly 2,000 exhibitors and around 200,000 attendees.

Samsung has played major roles at IFA in the past and has even introduced past Note smartphones, Galaxy Watches and some of its home appliances at the event. However, Samsung has recently held its own US Unpacked events, even ditching conferences like MWC as well.

“While Samsung will not be participating in IFA 2020, we look forward to our continued partnership with IFA in the future,” a spokeswoman said to CNET in late June.

We don’t officially know very much about the Galaxy Fold 2, except for screen size, how Samsung improved the hinge and its plans on preventing dirt from being the phone’s demise, like the original Galaxy Fold.

However, on September 1st Samsung will reveal the phone’s complete spec list, pricing and availability. On that day, the device will also be available for the public to pre-order. That said, it’s unclear if the foldable will be available to pre-order in Canada on that day as well.

In Canada, the original Fold was priced at $2,599, so one can expect similar pricing for the Z Fold 2.
