But when it comes to the Galaxy Fold successor most people thought it would be called the Galaxy Fold 2, but now we're seeing new reports of the 'Galaxy Z Fold 2' -- which seems to be a re-brand of the Galaxy Fold. Remember that Samsung has two foldable phones right now: the Galaxy Fold as its flagship foldable, while there's the cheaper, and clamshell-style Galaxy Z Flip.

The new reports suggest that Samsung's purported Galaxy Z Fold 2 will feature a 7.7-inch Youm On-Cell Touch AMOLED (Y-OCTA) display with a super-slick 120Hz display. Samsung will also reportedly be using the same Ultra-Thin glass that it did on the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone.

Samsung's current Galaxy Fold features a 4.6-inch outer display, but the new rumors suggest the company will upgrade this on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 to a much larger 6.23-inch Cover Display with a biometric fingerprint scanner on the side. As a personal owned of the Galaxy Fold, the larger 6.23-inch Cover Display is going to be a game changer for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (if it's called that, I guess).

We should expect Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Fold 2, or the Galaxy Z Fold 2 if these new rumors are true, on August 5 at Galaxy Unpacked 2020.
