Well it turns out the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will actually be making its way to the event on August 5. This information was confirmed by Ross Young, the Founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, who originally released specs of the Galaxy Z Fold 2. He says that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be announced on August 5, but could be released later on in October. Max Weinbach also redacted his original statement and corroborated the timeline.
Fold 2 fans, confirmed with my sources that it will be announced at Unpacked, although may not ship till as late as early October. Assembly starts in September. Also, why are leakers/media saying 7.7″. As we said on 4/20, it is 7.59″…No change. pic.twitter.com/CBJ380tYnb
