However, foldable smartphones have not yet arrived in the mainstream, but several phone makers are continuously working on this segment, and this technology is maturing gradually. As Samsung is the leader in this field, it has not only launched the Galaxy Fold and Z Fold 2 but also introduced the Galaxy Z Flip, which looks fashionable and portable.

Moving on, the South Korean tech giant is preparing to unveil its next generation of foldable phones and it’s expected that there will be two different models – Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. So far, we’ve encountered multiple leaks, now another one has been added to this list in the form of high-resolution rendering of the next clamshell-type folding phone.

LetsGoDigital again brought us a new rendering of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, which shows the same appearance as the previously exposed renders. According to the concept image, the biggest upgrade in the design of this device is that it uses a two-color contrast design, equipped with dual cameras, and the size will be slightly larger than the first Galaxy Z Flip.

Furthermore, the report suggests that Samsung will use Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on the front and back of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 so that the frame and screen will become more durable than before as well as more scratch-resistant.

As per the previous reports, the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 3 features the same top and bottom flip design as the original Galaxy Z Flip. It is expected to feature a 6.7-inch dynamic AMOLED screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. It still uses a center-punched design, but the screen bezel and proactive aperture are smaller, while the screen-to-body ratio is higher.

Apart from this, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 888 processor, which could bring the most powerful performance. In terms of optics, it will have two 12-megapixel cameras on the rear in a truly new camera system. Meanwhile, it could be packed with a smaller 3300mAh battery with 25W wired fast charging and 15W fast wireless charging.

Lastly, Samsung has not made an official announcement for the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. But, multiple reports suggest that the company will introduce its next-generation bendable smartphones somewhere in July this year and the Flip 3 could cost lesser than its predecessor.

Pixel 9 samsung modem

Google‘s Pixel 9 series is ready to introduce a significant upgrade with emergency satellite connectivity and new Samsung modem. This series aims to solve the persistent connectivity problems seen in previous Pixel models.

According to the information via AndroidAuthority, Samsung Modem 5400 will be integrated with Tensor G4 chips for the Pixel 9 series to bring significant improvements in terms of speed, power efficiency, and stability

The Pixel 9’s modem will support 5G non-terrestrial networks (NTN), which means it will enable satellite-based communication. This is particularly important for emergencies where standard network coverage is unavailable.

Moreover, this innovative feature is not exclusive to the Pixel 9. The next-generation Pixel Fold and a 5G tablet, currently under development, will also be equipped with the same modem.

One of the most notable features of this upgrade is the ability to connect with emergency services via satellite, which is crucial for users in areas without cellular coverage. To facilitate this, Google has implemented a system that guides users through a set of questions, allowing for quick communication with emergency responders. For example,

  • What happened?
  • [Are you/Are they/Is everyone] breathing?
  • In total, how many people are [missing/trapped]?
  • What best describes your situation?
  • What is on fire?
  • Are there weapons involved?

Although the release details for the 5G tablet are still unclear, the Pixel 9 series is expected to lead the way in mobile communication technology, ensuring users can remain connected in any location.
