Samsung is expected to unveil two new foldable smartphones—Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3—on August 11. The design, specifications, and even price ranges of both upcoming smartphones have been leaked already. Now, it is being reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will offer the best performance on any Galaxy smartphone.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor, at least 12GB RAM, and 256GB internal storage, and according to tipster Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), its heat management is better than the Galaxy S21 Ultra. This results in better gaming performance and longer battery life. If it is true, it is great news for heavy users and mobile gamers. However, you should take this information with a pinch of salt, not that we expect the foldable phone to be a below-par performer by any means. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also said to feature a stronger body despite it featuring movable parts since it is a foldable device.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 specs
The South Korean firm has improved the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in a lot of ways to attract more buyers. We had exclusively reported a few weeks ago that the foldable phone will come with an official IP rating. It is thinner than its predecessor and has a lower air gap between its two sides when it is folded. It will also reportedly feature stronger and more resilient UTG 2.0 (Ultra Thin Glass 2.0) protection over the foldable display. We had also revealed that the phone will be cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have a 10MP selfie camera under the 6.23-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O cover display. It will also be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature an under-display selfie camera (16MP) under the 7.55-inch Super AMOLED foldable screen. It has a 12MP+12MP+12MP triple-camera setup at the rear. The wide-angle and telephoto cameras have OIS, and the ultrawide camera features autofocus.
It runs Android 11 out of the box and is compatible with the S Pen. The phone is also expected to feature 5G, Nano-SIM + eSIM combo, GPS, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, UWB, and a USB Type-C port. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 has a side-mounted fingerprint reader and stereo speakers. It is powered by a 4,400mAh battery and it is compatible with 25W fast charging.
