Rumors of Samsung’s upcoming foldable smartphones – Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 – have started to trickle near its alleged launch in August. Renowned leaker Evan Blass has now posted new renders showing the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 in all their glory. While they don’t tell us much about their specs, we can see some minor design changes, especially for the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The selfie camera below the display seems to be highlighted for some reason. We can expect it to completely blend into the screen on the final product. Furthermore, it also shows us the small secondary display of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the dual camera setup on the back.
Blass also posted a second, more detailed image of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 that pretty much confirms ‘Fold Edition’ S Pen support for the foldable. The actual S Pen in question is significantly larger than the one on the Galaxy Note series. It could most likely be similar to the one we get with Samsung’s tablets. This also puts an end to rumors about the touch buttons on the foldable as the physical volume rocker and power button are clearly visible. Finally, the render also sheds light on the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s triple camera layout on the rear. Whether or not Samsung will include it in retail packaging remains to be seen.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is featured in a new dual-tone finish in the official-looking render. Even the external display looks bigger than the panel we’ve seen in the previous generation, and there are dual camera sensors on the outside.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 sometime in August. Initially, the Galaxy S21 FE was supposed to join, but that launch has reportedly been postponed to October 2021 due to the global shortage of semiconductors. It seems that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is immune to the said shortfall as it is expected to pack the shiny new (and unannounced) Snapdragon 888+ chipset.
