The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 should drop the Z to be called Fold 4 and Flip 4. A choice that is mainly political, but which also simplifies Samsung’s range of foldable smartphones.
Another change in nomenclature at Samsung. Used to upset the names of its products, Samsung has decided to ditch its Galaxy Z range of foldable screen smartphones, we learn from informant SnoopyTech. The change would be visible in Samsung’s next generation of foldable smartphones. So we wouldn’t have a Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, but Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4.
Goodbye Z for Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4
A welcome change as the letter Z adds nothing to these two products. For other families of Galaxy smartphones, the letters M, A, and S are good indicators of the range of the mobile. But for folding terminals, the Z makes no sense, since the mentions Fold and Flip are sufficient in themselves to describe the device.
Worse, the Z can lead to confusion between the Z Fold and Z Flip. According to the source, no more Samsung smartphones will use the letter Z in the future. But Samsung’s decision would in fact have nothing to do with a voluntary simplification of the nomenclature. She is said to be motivated by the fact that the letter Z has become a symbol of the Russian army.
Upcoming launch for Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Flip 4
This information seems quite plausible in light of the news. In addition, Samsung has already removed the letter Z from the name of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 in certain countries bordering Russia, especially in the Baltic countries, reinforcing the reliability of the SnoopyTech report.
The Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4 presentation conference will take place on August 10, 2022. Samsung is likely to launch pre-orders shortly after, for a release usually two weeks after the announcement. If we are to believe the rumors, new Galaxy Buds, and two connected watches, the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, are also on the program.
