In the past week, there have been divided opinions on whether Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Fold 2 at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event. This confusion has now been cleared by an official Samsung teaser video clip. It confirms that yes, Samsung will indeed announce a new foldable smartphone at the event next month.
The video clip shows a butterfly-like shape that also resembles a foldable phone's folding mechanism. It has been tweeted with the caption, "One fold, infinite possibilities". This makes it as clear as possible Samsung can be about the release of an upcoming product. The official name is still a mystery but it is expected to be a Galaxy Fold successor.
The teaser also confirms that XDA's Max Weinbach's updated tweet is likely to be correct. His new tweet mentioned that Galaxy Fold 2 announcement is expected at the event but an official launch will happen sometime in October. It means even though we will see the company showcase the product and talk about what it brings to the table, we will have to wait before we can actually get our hands on one.

The Galaxy Fold 2 is widely rumored to offer bigger displays on both the inside and outside. The primary display (inside) will be the bigger of the two and will also have a 120Hz refresh rate. The phone will have a flagship processor and a total of three cameras featuring a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, 64-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. Interestingly, new reports also suggest that the phone will actually be called Galaxy Z Fold 2 instead of Galaxy Fold 2.
