Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been in the works for quite some time now. It is the company’s latest flagship foldable phone, which could have a smaller cover display. If rumors are to be believed, Fold 3 may debut with S Pen support and an under-display camera as well. So, let us delve deeper to learn more about the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Rumors Roundup
When’s it coming?
Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be unveiled at an Unpacked event in the third quarter of 2021. Given that it’s the latest foldable flagship from Samsung, it’s safe to assume that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s 2021 flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset. Samsung didn’t introduce an Exynos 990-powered variant of the Z Fold 2 so it’s unlikely that its successor will get that treatment.
Still, with all the improvements that the company has made with the Exynos 2100, you never know. As per tipster Landsk, the device will be lighter than its predecessor. Similarly, we may see a significant upgrade in terms of refresh rate and wired/wireless charging.
There are several stories about the Galaxy Z Fold 3 floating across the internet. It is planned to have an under-display camera on both the outer and inner screens, as well as support for S Pen. Recently, Samsung has seemed interested in collaborating with Olympus to improve camera technology, and we may see that debut on the Z Fold 3.
Another tipster reveals that the S Pen on the Z Fold 3 would look identical to the one on the S21 Ultra but will have all of the functionality of the one on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. In terms of design, Samsung has made significant advancements with the Note 20 and S21 series. In addition, by drawing influence from both the S and Note series, we can see a more refined style in the Z Fold 3.
Let’s get to the contradicting point. The display size of the Z Fold 3 has been trending for a few days now. Since different tipsters have suggested different screen sizes, we are unable to validate the panel size precisely at this time. What we can be somewhat certain of is that its outer display could be significantly smaller than the Z Fold 2.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Launch Date (Expected)
As previously stated, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to be released in the third quarter (most likely in September) of this year. We expect to see the smartphone at Samsung’s next Unpacked event. Similarly, there is no price indication at this point, so we will have to wait until the launch.
