Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, 5G Galaxy Z Flip will launch in August 2020

Samsung is expected to launch two new foldable smartphones in the second half of the year. An affordable foldable handset model is expected to hit the market next year, industry insiders said on Sunday. Samsung is expected to present the Galaxy Fold 2 and the 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip together with its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 20 at an event in August, the news agency Yonhap reported, citing the industry sources. But his affordable foldable smartphone, probably called the Galaxy Fold Lite, is unlikely to make its debut at the event, they said.
The South Korean technology giant was said to have released a version of its foldable smartphone that costs almost half the price of a normal Galaxy Fold. Technical experts have predicted that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch screen and a 6.23-inch cover display when unfolded, both of which are larger than the 7.3-inch or 4.6-inch displays of the predecessor. Samsung is expected to use ultra-thin glass (UTG) for the Galaxy Fold 2,…

Why Apple will probably announce the iPhone 11 on Sept. 10

We were correct: Apple will unveil the iPhone 11 on Sept. 10.


On Thursday, Aug. 29 Apple finally sent out invites for its iPhone 11 launch event. We were right! The iPhone 11 will launch on Sept. 10 in Cupertino. What follows is our original prediction piece below.


Though Apple hasn't set out invitations to any iPhone events yet, the tech giant needs to whip up something exciting if it wants to get users hyped about the next iPhone 11, 11R and 11 Max (or whatever they'll be called). With iPhone sales falling 12% in the fiscal third quarter, profits expected to dip to $9.6 billion and more people trading in their iPhones for Androids, Apple needs to make sure its new flagship phones are compelling enough to draw new customers or keep current customers updated. Not to mention, its main rival Samsung took the wraps off its Note 10, Note 10 Plus and Note 10 5G on Aug. 7, and the phones are looking pretty great so far.


So when will Apple officially announce the 2019 iPhones? Based on previous years, I predict Apple will unveil the next iPhones on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Keep in mind this is just an educated guess, and we have no confirmation from Apple itself if this date is correct (Apple didn't immediately reply to a request to comment.) However, there are a few reasons why this is the likeliest date.

Video: Three new iPhone 11 models coming in September, rumor has it
For the past seven years Apple has announced iPhones either in the same week as Labor Day, which is on the first Monday in September, or the following week. In the past, if the US holiday occurred on Sept. 3 or earlier, Apple announced its iPhone the following week. When Labor Day landed on the Sept. 5 or later, as it did in 2015 and 2016, Apple announced the iPhone the following Wednesday (two days after Labor Day). Peep the chart below to see what I mean:


Apple iPhone release and announcement dates (2012-2018)

  • iPhone model and year Announcement date Release date
  1. iPhone XS/XS Max (2018) Wednesday, Sept. 12 Friday, Sept. 21
  2. iPhone 8/8 Plus (2017)  Tuesday, Sept. 12  Friday, Sept. 22 
  3. iPhone 7/7 Plus (2016)       Wednesday, Sept. 7  Friday, Sept. 16 
  4. iPhone 6S/6S Plus (2015)  Wednesday, Sept. 9  Friday, Sept. 25 
  5. iPhone 6/6 Plus (2014)  Tuesday, Sept. 9  Friday, Sept. 19 
  6. iPhone 5S (2013)  Tuesday, Sept. 10 Friday, Sept. 20 
  7. iPhone 5 (2012)  Wednesday, Sept. 12  Friday, Sept. 21


This year, Labor Day is on Monday, Sept. 2. Keeping with the pattern, Apple would announce its new iPhones the following Tuesday or Wednesday: Sept. 10 or Sept. 11. Either date fits the pattern, but since the news cycle on Sept. 11 is best avoided for obvious reasons, I'd go with Sept. 10 as the safer bet. I also predict preorders will kick off that Friday, Sept. 13.



The date also aligns with the expected in-store release and shipping dates too, which I expect to both fall on Friday, Sept. 20. For the last seven years, you could purchase the regular flagship iPhones on a Friday, around the third week of September, about a week and a half after Apple makes its announcements. Specialty iPhones, like the iPhone XR, iPhone X and iPhone SE shipped out on their own timelines. Because the iPhone XR was available in October, there's a chance the iPhone 11R will be in users' hands in October too.

There you have it. I believe Apple will announce the new iPhone 11s on Sept. 10, with preorders on Sept. 13 and shipping starting Sept. 20. Again, without Apple's confirmation these are just predictions, but we'll find out soon enough if I'm correct. Last year I wagered a can of Coke if I turned out to be right, which I was. (I'm still waiting for that soda BTW.) If I'm correct this year I shall wager... a box of Pocky.
