Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has pretty much been confirmed to launch on August 5, alongside the latest offerings in the Galaxy Note lineup. The South Korean giant took to social media to unveil its updated butterfly logo used for the Galaxy Fold series, revealing that the launch would take place at the online Galaxy Unpacked event on the date. Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Note 20 series on the occasion. Several specifications of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 2 were tipped earlier this month, along with rumours that the phone may not launch on the day due to software complications. However, the latest announcement has quelled all speculations around the launch date.

Samsung took to Twitter to post a teaser video, where it revealed the updated butterfly logo which it used on the first Galaxy Fold. Samsung revealed the launch date (August 5) on the post, with the caption, “A new look unfolds.” The new logo was revealed in the Mystic Bronze colour, which according to a report by PhoneArena, is one of the colour options on the Galaxy Fold successor, and is also anticipated to be offered on the Galaxy Note 20 series.
