Samsung plans to launch a real Galaxy Fold successor in the second quarter of 2020. This is in addition to its Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung foldable flip phone which will be presented at the same time as the new Galaxy S20 range.
On February 11, at its Samsung Unpacked conference in San Francisco. The Korean manufacturer is expected to officially present its Galaxy Z Flip. A new foldable smartphone based on the principle of flip devices ten years ago. However, Samsung wouldn’t stop there and will launch another foldable smartphone later.
Indeed, the Galaxy Z Flip would fold vertically, and not horizontally like the Galaxy Fold released at the end of 2019. Samsung has not forgotten this first format of smartphones. It should also launch the successor of the Galaxy Fold, which would fold vertically, during the year 2020. However, this Galaxy Fold 2 could indeed be released earlier this year than expected.
Samsung should launch the real successor to the Galaxy Fold in the second quarter this year
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.

According to the information obtained by Max Weinbach from the XDA Developers site, “Samsung should launch the real successor to the Galaxy Fold in the second quarter this year”. That is to say between April and June. A period which in fact corresponds to that initially planned for the first Galaxy Fold last year. Finally, the smartphone had to be pushed back for several months due to many fragility concerns.
This year, Samsung should therefore launch two foldable smartphones in the first half of the year. With the presentation of the Galaxy Z Flip on February 11, at the same time as the new Galaxy S20 range. In addition to a second Galaxy Fold three months later. As Max Weinbach points out, according to the various rumors circulating about it, the Galaxy Fold 2 could ship an 8-inch screen, a 108-megapixel camera, an ultra-thin glass screen, an S-Pen stylus, a Snapdragon 865 chip and 5G compatibility.
