Is the Galaxy Z Fold 3 getting a whole design rewrite?

June 16, 2021

Tipster Max Weinbach has leaked that the South Korean giant is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable phones and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4 at the Galaxy Unpacked Event.

Past leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 may be the first foldable smartphone with an under-display camera. The upcoming foldable smartphone from Samsung could also feature hybrid S Pen support. The new stylus is said to not have a sharp tip to prevent damaging the screen, and the internal display may not scratch easily owing to armour protection on the screen, hinge, and bezels. The outside body may be wrapped in Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for added protection.

Others have got into the action with YouTuber Jon Prosser claiming the Galaxy Watch 4 series will start shipping a week after the launch i.e. on August 11, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are likely to start shipping from August 27.

Earlier, TechRadar had reported how LetsGoDigital found a new trademark application from the South Korean tech giant. This trademark carried the term ‘Armor Frame,’ although the application did not reveal finer details regarding what this term implies.

Backed by a 4,275mAh or a 4,380mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to be available in three colour options — Black, Dark Green, and Silver.
