Samsung's next-gen foldable smartphone is now tipped to be called Galaxy Z Flip. The tip has been shared by Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), a well-known tipster with a reliable track record. He has further shared a self-made mockup of the name logo that Samsung might use for packaging and promotional purposes.
The tipster has not offered any explanation regarding possible reasons for such a name. Although, "Flip" in the name does represent the flip phone-like folding mechanism. If the new tip is correct, the previous week's report about the foldable phone's name being Galaxy Bloom will prove to be wrong.
It is speculated that Galaxy Bloom is actually the internal codename for the phone. A name that companies use for referring to yet-to-be-released products internally. Since the previous report mentioned that Samsung used the name in a secretive meeting with partners, it would make sense for it to go for a codename to prevent any leaks.
While we are still skeptical about the actual name of the next Samsung foldable phone, it seems to be confirmed that the next Galaxy S flagship will indeed be called Galaxy S20. There have already been a number of reports but the most recent one showed Galaxy S20+ 5G live photos. It showed the phone on the boot-up display with the device's name. Both of these phones are expected to get official at the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event scheduled for February 11th.
