According to a recent report from TheLec, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip2 will not arrive before the Galaxy S21 series. The new Galaxy S series models will launch in the Galaxy Unpack next year. However, the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will arrive after the first quarter of next year. Also, @DSCCRoss, earlier claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip2 will be delayed until next summer.
Samsung Electronics released the Galaxy Z Flip earlier this year instead of the Galaxy S20. Although both products made their debut on the “Samsung Galaxy Unpack 2020” in February, the Galaxy Z Flip and Unpack events took place in the same month, while the Galaxy S20 only appeared in March this year.
Samsung’s third-quarter financial report shows that it hopes to popularize foldable phones next year. Taking into account market competition, the demand for the Galaxy S series and the Galaxy Z Flip series seem to be clashing. This is exactly why the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip needs to arrive after the first quarter of next year.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 officially hit the shelves in early March this year. The production actually began in January. According to industry experts, the Galaxy S21 will arrive 1 – 2 months earlier than the Galaxy S20. This means that many experts expect this new Galaxy S series to arrive in mid-to-late January next year.
Furthermore, Samsung will also release the Galaxy Buds 2 wireless headphones at next year’s Unpack event. As of now, we do not know the exact name of the upcoming Galaxy Buds. However, we know that the development name is Attic.
Samsung to promote its foldable phone lineup next year

In addition, Lee Jong-min, senior director of the planning team of Samsung Electronics’ wireless business division, also stated “We plan to increase the price of foldable smartphone products in 2021 and continue to strengthen our product portfolio to promote folding screens…”
