We are still months away from the launching of the next generation folding smartphones of Samsung. At the same time, the record of leaks and early information is growing day by day. Recently, we’ve witnessed that the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 may have a slightly decreased outer display when compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
And now a piece of new information coming from South Korea suggests that the battery capacity of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is reduced than its predecessor. Meanwhile, it looks like the company is all set to deliver a somewhat smaller battery to bring upgrades to the thickness, size, and weight of the Fold 3, reports TheElec.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 to equip smaller battery than its predecessor
Furthermore, the reduction in battery capacity is defined as a result of reflecting changes in display size and portability. The report revealed that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be packed with a 4380mAh battery while the Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with a nearly 3% higher 4500mAh battery.
Aside from this, Samsung is also expected to introduce the Galaxy Z Flip 2 alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the battery supplier is Samsung SDI. Unlike the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series, the company does not use batteries other than Samsung SDI for foldable phones.
However, the main display size of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is likely to reduce to 7.5″ while the cover display is expected to be 6.2″. Though it is wider than the first-gen Galaxy Fold, buy the size of this future foldable phone is assumed to be unchanged alongside zero-bezel as well as no upper and lower edges.
When will the Galaxy Z Fold 3/Z Flip 2 go official?
As of now, we don’t have any authentic information regarding the specs and design of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2. In the meantime, these phones are expected to be launched in the first half of this year. Moreover, we can also expect that these handsets could feature futuristic technologies such as UPC, S Pen support, LTPO display, and more.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 crease hasn’t vanished, skipping waterdrop hinge?

According to the tipster, the display crease of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 looks the same as the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It was reported that the next foldable phone will be equipped with a new droplet hinge design to vanish the crease visibility.
Meanwhile, the “100% confirmed” leak points out it’s not changing this year. However, there is a probability of changes in the real product as the company is reportedly testing the durability of the device after applying the new hinge alongside the existing U-shaped hinge.
Various Chinese phone makers adopted the waterdrop hinge technology. Oppo’s Find N2 is a smartphone with the least visible crease in the industry as per the feedback of reviewers. However, durability always remains in priority as the foldable form factor is yet to mature.
Bad news: Galaxy Z Fold5 crease is almost the same as Fold4, so we wonder whether it really uses a water drop hinge.

Display PWM Dimming Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Vs Apple and Honor flagships
Smartphones are rapidly becoming smart and smart, thanks to technological innovations. In a recent development, a display PWM dimming comparison surfaced on the internet revealing that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is way too behind in this aspect against Honor.
Twitter user TECHINFO45 shared a video displaying the screen flickering on three flagship phones. In the video, Honor was the star of the show, leaving Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro in the dust, when it comes to display PWM dimming.
Higher display PWM dimming frequency of Honor 90 Pro made it a clear winner over the world’s two most powerful smartphones. FYI, PWM is a technique for controlling the brightness of a display panel by varying the width of the light pulse. You control how long the screen remains on or off.
PWM dimming frequencies:
- Honor 90 Pro 3840Hz
- Galaxy S23 Ultra – 240Hz
- Apple iPhone 14 Pro – 480Hz
Lowering the brightness causes the screen to be off for longer than it is on, which is perceived as lower brightness. The higher frequencies the lower rate of stress on human eyes that’s what studies say but it doesn’t mean Samsung panels are not eye-friendly.
It’s worth mentioning that some smartphone users may find them sensitive to the display flicker effects, while some aren’t. Here’s the smartphone equipped with a display having a higher PWM dimming frequency that would do a lot better, thanks to the low rate of flickering on the panel.
Can't imagine a phone to be this good!
The Honor 90 pro is set to have no flickering issue at all!
It features a whopping 3840Hz PWM dimming screen that doesn't allow stress your eyes
Here's the comparison with two more phones side-by-side
