Samsung’s upcoming launch event – Galaxy Unpacked – will take place on August 5 and Galaxy Note 20 is expected to be the showstopper at the event. While there have been plenty of leaks that confirm the launch of the Note 20, there has also been a teaser from Samsung which hints at the launch of new Galaxy Buds.
And now, there’s another teaser that points to the launch of a new Fold device.
The tweet posted by @SamsungMobile shows a blob of metal dropping and taking the shape of a butterfly. Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, had a fluttering butterfly as its default wallpaper and featured in all marketing collateral.
Fold 2 isn’t happening at Unpacked.

This is despite recent information from tipsters who claimed that Samsung would not launch nor announce a successor to the Fold at the upcoming Unpacked event. Of course, the teaser could also imply that Samsung may simply unveil or showcase the product at the event and not launch it right away.
Previous leaks have hinted that Samsung’s Galaxy Fold successor will be called the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and is expected to be priced lower than the previous model. Per those leaks, the new Fold feature a triple-camera setup at the back, go with a 120Hz refresh rate display, and pack in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.
