Samsung is expected to launch two foldable smartphones—Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3—in the second half of this year. The design of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 was leaked a few days ago, revealing a bigger cover display and a high-refresh-rate foldable screen. Now, the smartphone’s price has been leaked, and it looks like it will be good news for foldable lovers.
We had heard rumors about the Galaxy Z Flip 3 being priced lower than its predecessor. Leakster @hwangmh01 has claimed that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have a starting price of either $999 or $1,199. That’s at least $250 cheaper than the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, whose launch price was $1449.99 in the US. The upcoming smartphone is internally codenamed B2 (Bloom 2) and carries model number SM-F711N. The phone will reportedly be unveiled on August 3, 2021.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 will feature the same glass and metal clamshell design. It will sport a bigger, 1.83-inch display on the outside, making it easier to view notifications and interact with them. Users can also easily control music, capture selfies, and probably make payments. It is also expected to feature a 120Hz Foldable Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O display. Since it is a clamshell device, it could have the same side-mounted fingerprint reader from the Galaxy Z Flip.
It is also rumored that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be a 5G smartphone and come equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor. It will likely feature 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Rumors have claimed that the phone will have an IP rating for dust and water resistance. It could also use better cameras, Wi-Fi 6, GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, a 3,300mAh battery, 25W fast charging, and wireless charging.
