Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 incorporates a thinner self-cleaning hinge brush

One other folding cellphone for Samsung, one other spherical of potential issues to take care of. The corporate revealed the Galaxy Z Fold 2 today, which builds on loads of the enhancements we noticed within the Galaxy Z Flip. Particularly, Samsung paid shut consideration to the hinge, which is essential to creating these gadgets bend. The original Galaxy Fold was basically a prototype that invited in a ton of filth and particles into its hinge, so the corporate added a vacuum-inspired brush within the Z Flip’s hinge. That brush, dubbed the sweeper, makes a return within the new gadget.

Samsung is positioning the comb as a self-cleaning characteristic within the Z Fold 2, whereas earlier than it was extra of a mud blocker (despite the fact that the corporate by no means mentioned the Z Flip was really mud proof). It additionally revealed that the brand new brush might be 25 p.c shorter than earlier than. We don’t have the precise specs for the brand new gadget but, however I’d wager that smaller measurement might assist the Galaxy Z Fold 2 be a bit thinner than the Z Flip. I simply hope Samsung managed to make the sweeper simpler — in its teardown of the Z Flip, iFixit nonetheless discovered loads of filth inside their cellphone.
