If all the speculations flying around are true, Samsung will launch the successor to Galaxy Fold in August. Ahead of the announcement, the rumor mills have been busy with the foldable smartphone, as well as different leaks revealing some info since the past few months. Now, a new leak has emerged, saying that this upcoming device will be called Galaxy Z Fold 2 and not Galaxy Fold 2 as thought by everybody.
A report by SamMobile claimed that the next Samsung foldable smartphone will be marketed as Galaxy Z Fold 2. The publication received the information from their reliable sources and it could be mostly true.
Earlier this year, Samsung itself confirmed to Bloomberg that it will use “Galaxy Z” branding on all of its future foldable smartphones. But somehow, this news remained hidden in the tech community so that people simply called the next foldable from Samsung as Galaxy Fold 2.
As a matter of fact, the branding was right under our nose on the Samsung website. The company has listed both Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Fold under “Galaxy Z” series category.
As earlier mentioned, Galaxy Z Fold 2 is expected to go official on August 5 alongside Galaxy Note 20 series. It is reported to start shipping in September, followed by Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (S20 Lite) in October.
