There is no denying that Samsung has a habit of adapting names for their phones; we have the Galaxy A series, the flagship Galaxy S series, and the premium foldable Galaxy Z series. The Korean giant normally decides to stick with these monikers but now it seems that the upcoming foldable phones might not have the Z moniker at all.
Samsung Removing the 'Z' Moniker from Foldable Phones Could Be Because of the Russia/Ukraine Conflict
The latest report suggests that Samsung could be letting the Z moniker go forever and the upcoming foldable phones will be simply known as the Galaxy Fold 4 and the Galaxy Flip 4. The piece of information is coming from SnoopyTech and while we do not know why Samsung is dropping the Z moniker, there is a reason to believe that this could be because of the Russian/Ukrainian conflict that is going on. The letter Z has become the symbol of war in Russia.
Samsung Electronics tries to get rid of the "Z" letter in their folding phone series. Starting with Flip/Fold 4, the letter won't be printed on the boxes anymore. That's because Russian military is using the letter.

For those who do not know, in late March 2022, Samsung started selling foldable phones in some European countries without the Z moniker. There was no official statement at that time, and we would advise you not to take this as a confirmation but the Galaxy Fold 4 and the Flip 4 will have a much simpler and nicer tune to them.
Still, we will not have to wait long for confirmation since we are less than a week away from the Galaxy Unpacked and all will be unveiled about Samsung's plan and the legacy of foldable devices.
Until then, you can go ahead and reserve yourself a new foldable device along with other accessories if you wish to by going here.
