INTRO: Galaxy Z Flip 2, the successor to Samsung’s first-generation Galaxy Z Flip, might launch a touch later than expected. That’s according to noted display industry analyst, Ross Young (@DSCCRoss), who claims that contrary to recent rumors, the device will be announced next summer rather than next spring.
If he’s right, Samsung’s next-gen folding smartphone will be announced in the second or third quarter of next year, and not alongside the Galaxy S21-series, which is expected to go official in January/ February 2021.

On the other hand, another tipster, (@Ricciolo1), has recently tweeted a new teaser image suggesting that the upcoming smartphone will come equipped with stereo speakers. It will be an upgrade over the first-gen device which sports a single downward-firing speaker in it.
The Galaxy Z Flip 2 will be coming with a triple camera setup at the back and a larger display upfront. ALl this information is according to a recent report from a Dutch tech blog, Let’s Go Digital, which further claims that the rectangular rear-camera array on the device might have either a vertical or horizontal orientation.
There’s not a whole lot more info on the Z Flip 2 at this point, but we hope to hear more about it in the coming days. Given that the launch may need been pushed back by a couple of weeks (if the newest report is to be believed), we’d not get too many details right away, but when the leaks do start trickling out, it’ll be interesting to ascertain what proportion of an improvement it’ll be over its predecessor. Either way, we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
