Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy Book Pro series laptops at the third Galaxy Unpacked event of this year. However, the company has already confirmed that it won’t ship new Galaxy Note series smartphones this year due to chip shortage concerns, the next Unpacked event could be held for the next generation foldables.
So far, various leaks and rumors suggested that the South Korean tech giant will launch two different foldable phones that could be called the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2. Although we are months away from their expected launch, a Chinese tipster revealed several key specs of the Z Fold 3.
According to a Weibo tipster, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come with a 6.23-inch external screen and a 7.56-inch internal screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO tech. In terms of optics, this device will have a triple rear camera setup, which consists of 64MP+12MP+5MP, plus, it will have a disappointing 10MP camera on the front for selfies.
The same source revealed that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC instead of the rumored Snapdragon 888 Pro chip. Moreover, it will be equipped with a 4275mAh battery that can be rechargeable by a 25W fast charger.
Surprisingly, the Weibo tipster said that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature UDC technology and IP53 water resistance. The UDC is a futuristic technology, which allows the phone to present the content on the fullscreen of the smartphone by hiding the selfie camera when it’s not in use.
Lastly, the tipster claimed that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in July this year. However, the company has not yet officially confirmed it but we were expecting that the next-gen folding phones will be launched somewhere in July/August.
