That is correct ASSUMING that both sides of the folded dipole are the
same size wire.|
It is possible, by selecting the wire sizes carefully and appropriately, to make the input impedance of a folded dipole just about anything you wish it to be from about 50 ohms up to over 1000 ohms.
See: ARRL Antenna Book 17th Edition, page 2-33, figure 28.

Right... the folded dipole is 4x the open dipole impedance... not 2x
