Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 2 is now available to buy as of 18 September, after being unveiled on 5 August.

While February's Galaxy Z Flip was far more successful than the original Galaxy Fold, there was still an appetite for a full-sized phone that can also be a fully-functional tablet.

With the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung aims to provide that. Notable upgrades from the original include an all-new design, complete with 6.2in phone display and tiny punch-hole notch when opened into a tablet. There are also some new colour options, while Samsung will hope it's much more durable than the fragile original.

How much does the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost?

There's only one configuration of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, which costs £1,799/US$1,999. This gets you an impressive 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
