According to rumors, Samsung will present several new smartphones at the upcoming “Unpacked” event that could take place on August 5. In addition to members of the Galaxy Note 20 series, Samsung is likely to unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the successor to the Galaxy Fold smartphone. Although many thought that it would have the Galaxy Fold 2 moniker, new information suggests that its name will be Galaxy Z Fold 2.

This change makes a lot of sense since, after the announcement of the Galaxy Fold, the company launched the Galaxy Z Flip, inaugurating a new family of folding devices called the Galaxy Z. Samsung has always been quite clear about its intention on the Galaxy Z. According to the company, the name of the Z series “intuitively communicates with the idea of a folding device. And, at the same time, offers a dynamic and youthful feeling.” Also Read - Samsung Galaxy M01s spotted on official website, reveals 3GB RAM variant
