Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 leak confirms its new name


It is expected that come next week, Samsung will most likely be taking the wraps off the successor to the Galaxy Fold smartphone. Now thanks to a leaked photo posted onto Twitter, it appears that the next-gen Galaxy Fold’s name has been revealed, along with some additional details.

Assuming this leaked photo is the real deal, it looks like the second-gen Galaxy Fold will be known as the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G. This is in line with Samsung’s branding where they named their more recent foldable phone the Galaxy Z Flip. The naming scheme also suggests that the handset will come with support for 5G.

This isn’t too surprising given that Samsung had recently updated the Galaxy Z Flip with a new 5G model. Apart from that, the design of the phone looks pretty much the same as its predecessor, however there could be a change as far as the front-facing camera is concerned.

While it’s a bit hard to make out, the leaked photo revealed that instead of using a notch like in the original Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G will feature a hole-punch camera instead. The original notch did not necessarily distract too much nor did it cut into the screen’s real estate too badly, but a hole-punch could possibly help create the illusion of an edge-to-edge display.

In any case, more details should be revealed next week so be sure to check back with us on the 5th of August for the official information.
