Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely feature a smaller battery than Galaxy Z Fold 2


Last updated: April 20th, 2021 at 07:34 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is shaping up to be quite an impressive foldable smartphone. The device will likely get a faster processor, better displays, improved cameras, an under-display front-facing camera, and a thinner and lighter build. However, it might be powered by a smaller battery when compared to its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

It was reported last week that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could feature a dual-battery system with a combined capacity of 4,380mAh, but that information was just based on TheElec’s own source. Today, the upcoming foldable phone’s dual-battery system passed through the 3C certification process in China. One of those batteries (EB-BF926ABY) has a rated capacity of 2,060mAh, while the other battery (EB-BF927ABY) has a rated capacity of 2,215mAh.

The combined battery capacity turns out to be 4,275mAh, and Samsung could market it as a 4,380mAh or a 4,400mAh battery. Although Samsung appears to be using a smaller capacity battery than the Galaxy Z Fold 2, its upcoming foldable phone could make up for it via more power-efficient internals such as its 5nm processor.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 expected features

We had exclusively revealed yesterday that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have an official IP rating for dust and water resistance. The device could also feature thicker Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) protection over the foldable screen to withstand the S Pen. Speaking of S Pen, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely come with S Pen support, but it won’t have a dedicated silo to store the stylus.

The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to feature a 6.21-inch cover display and a 7.55-inch foldable display. We had exclusively revealed that the foldable phone will have 256GB internal storage, and that it will run Android 11 with One UI 3.5 out of the box. The device will be available in at least two colors: black and green. It will also be available in The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to be unveiled sometime in July 2021 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
