Samsung’s next Galaxy Z Flip could have a different name than expected

Samsung’s product plans have shifted around over the past few months, partially due to ongoing supply chain issues due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the more recent global semiconductor shortage. A successor to the Galaxy Z Flip was expected to arrive alongside the Galaxy S21 earlier this year, but not only has it been delayed, but it could also get a new name.

There has already been speculation that Samsung would name its next clamshell-style foldable phone the ‘Galaxy Z Flip 3,’ even though it would only be the second product in the Z Flip lineup. Citing “several reliable sources,” SamMobile is now reporting that the next Z Flip phone will indeed be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

The reasoning could be to synchronize the generations across the Z Fold (which is expected to have a third entry this year) and Z Flip. Samsung pulled the same move with its Galaxy Note phones a few years ago, when it jumped from the Galaxy Note 5 in 2015 to the Galaxy Note 7 in 2016, so it should share generation numbers with the mainstream Galaxy S phones.

Whatever it ends up being called, the next Z Flip phone is expected to have a more powerful processor than the original Z Flip (big surprise, I know) and a 120Hz display. Certification documents for the phone reveal there will be two internal batteries: one 2,370mAh unit and one 903mAh cell.
