Now finally it will be doing it,  if the leak is to be believed. While it is easier for consumers and brands to call these foldables with a shorter and clearer name, the reason why Samsung is actually dropping the Z moniker starting with Fold 4 and Flip 4 could surprise you.

As per the same leak, Samsung will be removing the “Z” letter from its foldable lineup because the Russian Military uses it. This is an effect of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. The Russian Military tanks and other vehicles used in the war have the letter Z on them, which is why Samsung could be doing away with “Z.”

Samsung is yet to officially confirm the same, so do take the information with a pinch of salt.
