Has Samsung decided to delay the Galaxy Z Fold 2 launch?


Last updated: July 13th, 2020 at 09:52 UTC+02:00

Samsung is preparing to launch an almost insane number of new products in the coming weeks. There’s the Galaxy Note 20 series, the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, and a 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip, along with the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Watch 3, sequels to the Galaxy Buds+ and 2018’s Galaxy Watch.

We had exclusively reported that the new wearables will be separately launched sometime in July, and it seems Samsung is also going to space out the announcement of its new foldable.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 launch unlikely on August 5

XDA Developers’ Max Weinbach tweeted over the weekend that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is not going to be launched at Samsung’s virtual August 5 Unpacked event. He also says in a follow-up tweet that the software for the device isn’t “close to ready for a September launch”. If true, this means that we will only see the Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Tab S7/S7+, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G on August 5, which is a good thing in our books as it would mean the event would be less crowded, giving Samsung more time to talk about its new Note and tablet flagships.

Both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Fold 2 are high-end devices and Samsung wouldn’t want either of them to take the limelight away from the other. It may have decided to space out the launch in order to ensure that both devices had equal opportunity to dominate the news cycle.

Samsung has confirmed a virtual Unpacked event for August 5. As it stands, fans can now expect to see the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra at the event as well as the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. It’s not known right now when the Galaxy Z Fold 2 would be launched but it shouldn’t be more than a few weeks after August 5.
