Latest rumour mill is that there will not be any s-pen inclusion. Storage is 256 gb.

Makes sense to not include the S Pen as the main display don't think can withstand the pressure of the S Pen.

Even for Fold 1, fingernails can leave marks on the main screen.

Unless Samsung can improve the main screen material hardness, it most probably will be scratched easily

Ya. Reports also mentioned that screen won't be the utg type found on the Z Flip.

Nope.. Apparently cheaper than Fold 1. It's priced between the Z Flip and Fold 1.

How is the crease in the middle of the phone?
I was put off by fold 1 because of the screen folding issue.
Hopefully this fold 2 rectify it and use a better screen plastic.

As long as it's foldable, there will be a crease. Frankly, the crease in my Fold hardly distract me. Z Flip also has noticeable crease ma.
