- Samsung is reportedly starting production of new foldables in August.
- So you might have to wait a while after the early August event to get your hands on them.
Samsung is widely expected to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series on August 5 or thereabouts. But the firm is also working on a Galaxy Z Flip 5G, tipped for a reveal at the same time.
Now, display industry insider Ross Young has suggested that Samsungâ€™s new foldables wonâ€™t be available in early August. More specifically, Young says production will only start in earnest from August, predicting late August or September availability as a result. Check out the tweet below.
Production really not starting till August. Almost none in July. Gonna be a late August or September launch. UTG volumes constrained until 2021, so order either early.

It seems like the chief reason for the delay is the ultra-thin glass (UTG) technology, with the executive pointing to low volumes being a challenge. Young adds in a later tweet that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G will likely be released later than the Fold 2 as well. Either way, we hope Samsung is able to keep up with demand for both foldable phones when production is eventually underway.
Weâ€™re definitely looking forward to the Galaxy Fold 2, as Samsung is set to bring a host of improvements and additions to the foldable. The new device is tipped to pack the Galaxy S20 Plus camera setup, a 120Hz main screen, and the aforementioned UTG tech on this display.
