Samsung will be hosting an event on the 11th of February, 2020. The event is largely expected to see Samsung launch their new Galaxy S20 smartphones, and if the rumors are true, it could also see the launch of a new foldable smartphone which has been referred to as the Galaxy Z Flip.
Now according to a tweet by XDA’s Max Weinbach, he has heard from his sources that Samsung will not only launch one foldable phone, but two foldable phones this year.
For those who are unfamiliar, the Galaxy Z Flip will be similar in design to Motorola Razr’s foldable flip phone. It will sport a clamshell-like design with a foldable display in the middle of it, putting a twist to a classic feature phone design. The second foldable phone has been rumored to be the successor to last year’s Galaxy Fold.
This is a smartphone that can be unfolded into a tablet form factor, and folded back again to a smartphone. In addition to being foldable, Weinbach’s source also tells him that it could sport an 8-inch display, a 108MP camera (similar to the upcoming Galaxy S20), the use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset, 5G connectivity, and interestingly enough, an S Pen.
I just got word that Samsung will likely be launching the true Galaxy Fold successor in Q2 of this year.
If I've conglomerates all the different reports correctly, it should have an 8" display, 108MP camera, ultra thin glass, SPen, Snapdragon 865 and 5G.

Needless to say that this should be taken with a grain of salt, but hopefully we’ll have more details about it at Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event.
