Samsung is expected to unveil a host of devices in August, including the Galaxy Note20 series, a new Watch 3, the Tab S7, an updated Z Flip with beefier internals and 5G support, and the second-generation Fold. While a lot of information has been leaked about the devices, including slip-ups from the south Korean giant itself, some more details in terms of branding of the Fold 2 are now being reported.
Sources familiar with the matter have told SamMobile that the company will call the second-generation foldable device the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The branding falls in line with the new Z moniker that the company is adopting for its foldable device range that debuted with the Z Flip. In an interview early this year, a spokesperson claimed that the decision to use the Z branding was taken because “it intuitively communicates the idea of a fold while delivering a dynamic, youthful feel”.
As for the device itself, it is expected to be sold at a slightly lower price than its predecessor. The horizontally folding device is rumored to come with a triple-camera setup at the back, sport a 120Hz high refresh rate display covered by the company’s ultra-thin glass, and be powered by a Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC.
The company is expected to hold a virtual Unpacked event on August 5 where it will announce the Z Fold 2, along with the other flagships.
