The Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 should ditch the Z and be renamed Fold 4 or Flip 4. This is a purely political choice, but it simplifies Samsung’s foldable smartphone range.
Samsung has also made a change in the nomenclature. We learnt from SnoopyTech that Samsung is dropping its Galaxy Z range foldable-screen smartphones. This was a move that used to cause confusion in the product names. This change will be evident in Samsung’s next generation foldable smartphones. We wouldn’t see a Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Galaxy Z Flip 4, but a Galaxy Fold 4 or Galaxy Flip 4.
Goodbye Z Galaxy Flip 4 and Galaxy Fold 4
This is a welcome change, as the Z letter does not add anything to the two products. The letters M, A and S indicate the range of Galaxy smartphones. The Z is not appropriate for folding terminals. Fold and Flip suffice to describe the device.
Worse, confusion can result from the Z Fold and Z Flip using the Z. The source claims that no new Samsung smartphones will use the Z letter in the future. Samsung’s decision is not based on a voluntary simplification in nomenclature. According to reports, she was motivated by the fact the letter Z has become a symbol for the Russian army.
Galaxy Flip 4 and Galaxy Fold 4 are set to launch soon
These facts seem plausible given the recent news. Samsung has also removed the Z from the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s name in certain countries bordering Russia, particularly in the Baltic countries. This confirms the reliability of the SnoopyTech reports.
On August 10, 2022, the Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4 presentations will be held. Samsung will likely launch pre-orders soon after, with a release typically two weeks following the announcement. According to rumors, Samsung will also launch new Galaxy Buds and two connected watches, Galaxy Watch 5 Pro and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
