Confirmed: Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will be water resistant!


Last updated: July 26th, 2021 at 22:36 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s foldable phones are the best you can get on the market today, with both the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 offering a surprisingly solid experience despite the very short time it’s been that Samsung has been making foldable devices. And with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3, we’re expecting to see to plenty of improvements, one of which is the addition of an IP rating.

We revealed months ago that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 would have some kind of IP rating, and a recent rumor suggested the two foldables would be IPx8 certified for the same level of water resistance as Samsung’s non-folding flagships. Well, we’re now getting proper confirmation ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked event next month, thanks to a promo image leaked on Twitter.

Samsung’s foldables are already water resistant, and that’s neat

It’s pretty impressive that Samsung has been able to make its foldables water resistant in such a short time. However, dust resistance is still missing. It will probably be another year or two before Samsung is able to do something about that, though we will likely see an improved version of the company’s innovative sweeper technology that was introduced with the Galaxy Z Flip on the new foldables.

And perhaps Samsung will also eventually be able to do something about the resolution of the fancy new under-display camera that will debut on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. We recently heard that the selfie camera on the main screen could be a measly 4-megapixel sensor, and that’s being reiterated in today’s leak. Hopefully some software trickery will make up for the low-resolution output, though we will have to wait for the Z Fold 3 to go official before we find out.
