Following a simultaneous event in August 2020, Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with the Note 20, with more information to come at the beginning of September 2020. It’s been almost a year since the previous Fold gadget was released, which means it’s time for a refresh.
There have been many rumors circulating about the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Here is a compilation of everything we’ve heard so far regarding the foldable, including what features we can expect to see when it’s likely to be launched, and what it might look like when it does.
1.When and how much will it cost?
The event will take place on August 11th.
On sale on the 27th of August, 2021?
Probably about £1800/$2000 in total.
It is anticipated that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be unveiled during the company’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, which will take place on August 11 in San Francisco. According to rumors, the on-sale date for the game may be on August 27th.
In terms of pricing, we anticipate it to be in the same ballpark as the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which retails for £1799 in the UK and $1999 in the United States at launch. According to rumors, the beginning price will be €1899, which is about £1625 in the United Kingdom and $2250 in the United States. So if you’re hoping to get your hands on Samsung’s next foldable flagship, it’s probably time to start saving.
Folding in the vertical direction
Folded dimensions: 158.2 x 128.1 x 6.4mm unfurled; folded dimensions: 158.2 x 67.1 x 14.4mm 271g IPX8 rating S Pen compatibility
We anticipate that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will use the same book-style vertical fold as the original Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2, with the horizontal fold reserved for the Galaxy Z Flip line of devices. In addition, we anticipate that the hinge will once again provide various orientations.
In a series of photos leaked on Twitter, courtesy of Evan Blass (AKA @evleaks), it seems that this is very certainly the case. Additional images from 91Mobiles confirm the design and show three color choices, while WinFuture has also released renders of the same design with a different color scheme.
Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be compatible with an S Pen that has been specially developed for it, so we know you’ll be able to use the pen with the folding.
Rumors of S Pen compatibility emerged before the Galaxy Z Fold 2 was unveiled as well, but it was believed that the folding display would be unable to withstand the forces exerted by the pen, a concern that Samsung has since shown to be unfounded.
The space between the two sides of the folding screen seems to be somewhat narrower in other design leaks – and those pictures also appear to reveal an under-display front camera, which has been speculated on numerous occasions.
It is suggested in another patent that the Z Fold 3 or another Z Fold gadget may utilize gesture controls rather than buttons and that users will be able to customize the motions and tasks that are performed.
Prior to the release of the Z Fold 2, there was some debate about waterproofing. However, sources have indicated that the Z Fold 3 may get an IP rating – believed to be IPX8, which is the same as what has been anticipated for the Z Flip 3.
In addition, Samsung has registered a trademark for the phrase “Armor Frame.” It’s possible that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be the first phone to benefit from a new design or material that will help to reinforce the phone’s frame, according to rumors.
7.56-inch display with 2208 x 1768 pixels (internal); 6.23-inch display with 2268 x 832 pixels (external) (internal)
Both have a refresh rate of 120Hz.
When folded, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is claimed to feature a huge flexible display on the inside, as well as an external display on the outside of the device.
It has been revealed that the internal display would measure 7.56 inches and have a resolution of 2208 x 1768 pixels, according to a number of leaks.
The external display will feature a 6.23-inch screen with a resolution of 2268 x 832 pixels and measure 6.23 inches in length. It has also been said that both the internal display and the exterior display would have a refresh rate of 120Hz each.
On the front display, it’s anticipated that there will be a punch hole camera, while different rumors have indicated that there would be an under-display camera on the main display.
4.Hardware and specifications
Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 with 12GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of storage, a 4400mAh battery, and 5G capability.
According to rumors, the Z Fold 3 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, which will come with 12GB of RAM and an option of 256GB or 512GB of internal storage, respectively. MicroSD is not listed as a compatible storage device.
The battery capacity has been the subject of conflicting claims, with some saying it is slightly smaller than the Galaxy Z Fold 2 at 4380mAh and more recent sources indicating it is 4400mAh. It has been said that both fast charging and wireless charging would be enabled.
For connection, we already know that both the original Fold and the Z Fold 2 were 5G-enabled, so we may assume that the Z Fold 3 will be as well.
Front camera with a punch-hole resolution of 10MP
Under-display camera with 4MP or 16MP resolution
A system with three 12MP primary cameras
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is equipped with a triple-lens back camera as well as a front camera with two 10-megapixel punch-holes. In the back, there are three 12-megapixel cameras: a 12-megapixel primary camera, an additional 12-megapixel telephoto sensor, and an additional 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera.
According to a leak from July, the fundamental structure of the game will remain substantially the same. In practice, this implies three 12-megapixel cameras in the primary system on the back and a 10-megapixel sensor on the front, as has been stated before and repeated in recent months.
According to the leaked list, Samsung will utilize PDAF (phase detection autofocus) on all three of the cameras, which means we should be able to achieve quick, precise focusing on the primary camera, as well as the ultrawide and telephoto 2x zoom cameras.
The leaked picture above shows a back camera configuration that is similar to the previous devices, although more ‘hidden’ inside the body and projecting less from the body than in the previous smartphones.
The major news is that the Z Fold 3 is almost certainly going to include an under-display camera – often known as a ‘UPC’ (Under Panel Camera) due to the patented technology used by Samsung to describe this feature. In accordance with the spec leak, this UPC will be equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor, but a 4-megapixel sensor has also been mentioned on a few occasions. The purported Z Fold 3 with this UPC has also been leaked on Twitter in the form of pictures.
