Max Weinbach told us that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 wasn’t going to be launched alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series in the next Unpacked event. However, a new tweet by Ross Young, from Display Supply Chain Consultants, claims that the device is still on for an August 5 launch. Max Weinbach also changed his original statement, and he now also mentions that the device would be released in October.
