 Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 Name Change Rumors Hint That it Will be Called Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

It was only a few days ago when the news broke out that Samsung has decided to call its second foldable smartphone model as Samsung Galaxy Bloom.

The name Bloom was supposed to appeal to this targeted customer base. Now that this name stands changed to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, some people may start questioning if this is the right one. The fact is this new phone is indeed a flip phone, much like the feature phones of the bygone era when the flip phones used to be very popular. It is the same clamshell form factor with the top part the phone opening out vertically. In the first edition, the Samsung Galaxy Fold appears like a book opening horizontally.

The expectation is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will be around $1,000.
