    Samsung had mentioned earlier that it wants to make foldable devices thinner and lighter, and it appears to have done just that with the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The upcoming foldable smartphone from the South Korean firm passed through China's TENAA certification process, revealing some of its important specifications.

    According to the listing of the Chinese variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 (SM-F9260), the smartphone measures 158.2 x 128.1 x 6.4mm when it is unfolded. It means that the smartphone is slightly thinner than its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 (which is 6.9mm thin). Going by the leaked images of Samsung's upcoming foldable flagship, it appears to have less air gap between the two sides when it is folded. A lower air gap translates to a thinner body that also looks more appealing.

    The phone's TENAA listing also reveals that it features a 6.2-inch cover display, Android 11, and a 4,500mAh battery (dual batteries with 2,155mAh and 2,345mAh capacities). The Galaxy Z Fold 3 also features GPS, dual-SIM functionality, 5G NR (SA/NSA), LTE, and Bluetooth. Going by previous leaks, the phone sports a 7.55-inch foldable Super AMOLED display with a 16MP under-display selfie camera and S Pen functionality. It also has a side-mounted fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and a USB Type-C port.

    The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is rumored to feature a 12MP+12MP+12MP triple rear-facing camera setup, consisting of a 12MP primary camera (1/1.76-inch), a 12MP ultrawide camera (1/3.2-inch ISOCELL 3L6) with autofocus, and a 12MP telephoto camera (1/3.6-inch ISOCELL 3M5) with 2x optical zoom. The primary and telephoto cameras are expected to have OIS and dual-pixel autofocus. The ultrawide camera can double up as a macro camera.

    The smartphone features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 processor, 12GB/16GB RAM, and 256GB/512GB internal storage. Other features include Samsung Pay and an official IP rating. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 3 on August 11, 2021, alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, and the Galaxy Buds 2.
