Galaxy Z Fold 3 confirmed to get S Pen support, UWB, and more


Last updated: July 12th, 2021 at 15:34 UTC+02:00

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in August 2021. Ahead of the launch event, most of the features and specifications of the device have been leaked, along with its design. It can now be confirmed that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be Samsung’s first foldable phone with S Pen support.

The US variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (SM-F926U and SM-F926U1) received the FCC certification earlier today, and the supporting documentation reveals a lot of exciting information. The foldable smartphone features 5G (mmWave and sub-6GHz), 4G LTE, CDMA, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth, NFC, and UWB. It will also be Samsung’s first foldable smartphone to come with S Pen support. It also supports 9W Qi wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.

The FCC certification documents reveal that the device features a digitizer function that operates with the S Pen via inductive coupling (which is how S Pen always works). However, the S Pen might not come bundled with the device, and it may not have a dedicated silo to store the stylus. Like the Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung might sell an additional case for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 that can hold the S Pen.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 expected specs

Going by previous reports, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 features a 6.2-inch cover display (Super AMOLED Infinity-O) and a 7.5-inch Super AMOLED foldable display. Both screens are said to feature a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+. The phone might come equipped with a Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB/16GB RAM, 256GB/512GB storage, stereo speakers, and an official IP rating.

The phone could feature a 16MP under-display camera below the internal foldable display, a 10MP selfie camera on the cover display, and a 12MP+12MP+12MP triple-camera setup at the rear. The phone will be powered by a 4,400mAh battery and feature 25W fast charging. We had exclusive reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be 20% cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
