I have to admit I’m shocked by how little the future Samsung foldables have leaked so far. Huawei Mate X2 as well, since it hasn’t quite been on our radar. Somebody is really keeping a lid on these leaks… Luckily we have talented designers like Waqar Khan, who came up with a render of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. He even has a video for us.
The device adopts the camera design of the S21 series and also makes the selfie punch hole as small as possible. It also doubles or even triples the size of the external display and cuts down on the bezels of the foldable main screen. The color combo is Violet and Rose Gold for the frame, akin to the S21. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was one of the sleeper hits of 2020, with incredible sales during Black Friday, when it was dirt cheap. You could even get one for $500 or less…
It’s no wonder people are excited about the follow-up, particularly if it provides solid upgrades. We need smaller bezels, a better battery life, solid Snapdragon CPU and extra functionality for the 90 degree usage mode. The gold on gold version looks pretty “Richie Rich” and fashionable, but it’s not for everyone. The screen crease looks less visible now and the hinge mechanism is even better hidden. Another upgrade would be the ability to use the device at other angles, not just at 90 degrees.
The 6.7 inch main screen may jump to 6.8 or 6.9 inches even. Expect a Dynamic AMOLED panel wit 120 Hz refresh this time maybe or at least 90 Hz. The predecessor only had 60 Hz. The triple back camera is most likely identical to the S21 one, as far as sensors are concerned: 12 MP main, 64 MP telephoto and 12 MP ultrawide. The 10 MP camera is also due an upgrade, since I used the one from the Z Flip and it had a lesser quality, or it could have been the fault of the lower default res of the pics, something like 6 MP.
Price this Galaxy Z Flip 3 right and we’ll talk!
