There is much anticipation for Galaxy Fold’s successor. Samsung’s first collapsible smartphone got off to a bad start, but the company saved face with the Galaxy Z Flip. Now all eyes are on a product called Galaxy Fold 2. This is not its actual name, and the latest news shows that Samsung has decided to change its naming practices slightly, and given the hints earlier this year, that’s not surprising.
We know from reliable sources that the Galaxy Fold 2 will be launched under the name Of The Galaxy Z Fold 2, which means that Samsung’s collapsible smartphones will all be included in the Galaxy Z series.
The brand appears alongwith Samsung’s first clam-shell editable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip. The company confirmed back in February that it had chosen to name its collapsible device portfolio the Galaxy Z, adding that “Z” was chosen because it “intuitively conveys the concept of folding while bringing a dynamic, youthful feel.”
At this point, Samsung moved the original Galaxy Fold to the newly added Galaxy Z category on its website. We also pointed out at the time that it was now possible to switch to z-based naming for the galaxy Fold renewal.
Not surprisingly, Samsung will launch more products in the coming years, so naming conventions can’t be the same. But apart from the new name, Samsung fans will be more interested in what’s new in the Galaxy Z Fold 2. As we know so far, in addition to the 7.7-inch collapsible display, it also brings a larger cover-panel display, as well as top-notch hardware parameters, 5G and the latest version of the One UI.
There was no word on pricing, but it’s hoped it might be lower than the previous generation’s $1980.
