Exactly one month ago we came across a rumor passed along by @DSCCRoss on Twitter suggesting that Samsung may have delayed the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 2 to late 2021. At the same time, we explained why you probably shouldn’t make any plans based on this particular rumor, and today we’re hearing a different narrative from the same source.
According to the new rumor, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 won’t be delayed to Q3 2021 after all. It won’t be released along with the Galaxy S21 series either, which we have already exclusively revealed to be launching in January, but instead it will debut in spring next year. In other words, Samsung is likely to adopt its usual yearly flagship launch schedule for the Galaxy Z Flip series. The original model was introduced in February 2020 and it was followed by a 5G variant in August.
So far it’s business as usual
The Galaxy Z Flip 2 is expected to feature 4G and 5G connectivity from the first day of availability but even though we have our own wishlist for the device, there’s not much else known about this mysterious foldable sequel. Nevertheless, @DSCCRoss claims to have the scoop on some of the impressive upgrades the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will receive but details are lacking. We’ll keep you up to speed as soon as more details come to light.
Until then, feel free to let us know if you’re a foldable phone owner or if you have an interest in this technology/form factor. What’s your take on the original Galaxy Z Flip and what would convince you to buy the Galaxy Z Flip 2 next year? Leave a comment below.
The Z Flip 2 will not be launched with the S21, but it will be launched in the spring. I am impressed with the upgrades it will get.
