We’re anticipating to see a brand new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 debut alongside the Galaxy S11 (or S20) on February 11, and whereas we have got a imprecise concept of what it can appear to be, we’re nonetheless undecided what it is going to be known as – and now yet one more identify has been introduced up.
This new identify is ‘Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’, which might be our least favourite identify for the brand new system, and it was introduced up by esteemed leaker @UniverseIce. It is not clear the place this info got here from, however @UniverseIce tends to have a reasonably good monitor file, which is why we’re reporting on the leak within the first place.
Whereas we might defaulted to calling the upcoming foldable cellphone the ‘Galaxy Fold 2’ (as it is a successor to the Galaxy Fold) a prior leak suggested it would be released as the Galaxy Bloom.
We’d previously heard the device had the codename ‘Bloom’ but we were surprised to hear the suggestion that this was the actual release name, and now that there’s a new potential name, Bloom is looking ever less likely.

We’re anticipating the Galaxy Fold 2 to have a ‘clamshell’ design, considerably like an previous flip cellphone, due to this fact the identify ‘Flip’ can be applicable. Saying that, the letter ‘Z’ is a bit complicated – it suggests the cellphone will fold just like the letter z with two hinges, like how a number of idea foldable telephones shut.
Even with out the evocation, the letter Z is a complicated addition to the identify, so it might be that that is solely the identify in China, the place Samsung already has a variety of flip telephones, and due to this fact the letter can be helpful to distinguish them.
It is also price declaring that @UniverseIce beforehand talked about the Galaxy Bloom too, though they definitely did not champion it as a lot as different events did.
We’re a bit of skeptical of the Z Flip identify, as our tone suggests, however then once more we had been doubtful when @UniverseIce steered the Samsung Galaxy S11 would truly be known as the Galaxy S20. Now, most leaks are suggesting that newer identify is appropriate, so maybe the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 actually may come out because the Galaxy Z Flip.
