Samsung has been planning to launch its Galaxy Z Fold 3 very soon. However, the company didn’t release the device on the 14th January launch. Rumors said the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely be Samsung’s next top-tier foldable phone. Point to be noted that Samsung officially released the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in September 2020. The device was launched with improvement on the original Galaxy Fold’s durability issues and got a much bigger front screen. One leak suggests the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could run One UI 3.5 and its release date will be in June 2021. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost you $1,999, so we expect a similar price for the Z Fold 3.
Samsung may switch screen technologies from EMR (electromagnetic resonance) to AES (active electrostatic solution) for a better register stylus input. A leak also suggested that the UTG (ultra-thin glass) maybe twice as thick as on the Z Fold 2, from 30 micrometers to 60 micrometers. There’s also a rumor that the Z Fold series will combine with the Note series to make a single productivity-focused phone line, ultimately condensing Samsung’s annual flagships to just the S- series and the stylus-packing foldable Z Fold line. A Samsung official has reportedly said that the Z Fold 3 will get a stylus while the Note range will be discontinued. Another feature the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might get is an in-screen camera. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could have at least 256GB of storage and run Android 11.
It is noteworthy that the Z Fold 2 is still a powerful phone with the best specs on the market. Galaxy Z Fold 2 is an impressive and attractive phone but needs two hands to use properly with closed and using the 6.2-inch external screen, and its 16.8mm thickness. The Z Fold 2 has a decent spread of cameras, but it misses out on the powerful shooters on Samsung’s other phones. The trio of rear 12MP cameras including main, ultra-wide, and telephoto don’t measure up to the Samsung S20 Ultra’s 108MP main and 48MP 4x optical telephoto lenses, which combine for their stunning 100x Space Zoom capability. Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 4,500mAh battery, which has been surpassed by even budget phones like the Moto G8 Power and its 5,000mAh battery.
