While we are over a month away from the reveal of the next generation of foldable Samsung smartphones, new renders of the upcoming Galaxy Fold 2 have been leaked from trusted sources. And from the looks of it, the smartphone is expected to come with a punch-hole design.Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, punch hole, foldable smartphone
Famous tipster user Ice Universe had shared a render of the device in all its glory. The render reveals the Galaxy Fold 2 in its unfolded state and the image reveals that Samsung plans to place the selfie camera as a punch hole device in the top-right side. While the location of the front camera may seem a bit off if you are trying to take selfies or perform video calls, it appears that the placement of the camera on that position is a smart move and will appear in the upper middle of the screen when the device is folded.
At first, I thought the hole location was strange, but then I thought about it carefully. This might be the most suitable location. pic.twitter.com/r0PBtQGkhl
