Samsung is preparing to release not only the flagship Galaxy S21 series, but also an update to its foldable smartphones with flexible screens. Information and high-quality renders of the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip clamshell smartphone have appeared on the network. It may be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The information was shared by LetsGoDigital website, they finalized the conceptual images in accordance with the recent leaks.
According to the source, the first foldable smartphone of Samsung in 2021 will be the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip. Presumably, the model will not be named the Galaxy Z Flip 2, but the Galaxy Z Flip 3, to keep up with the markings of another foldable series, the Galaxy Z Fold.
The images showcase the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with a design that inherits the features of the original Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy S21, which are expected to be announced in a few days. In particular, the smartphone will receive a triple camera exactly like the Galaxy S21. In addition, the screen has been increased by reducing the thickness of the frames, the hinge has been redesigned, and the opening in the screen for the camera has been reduced.
The source previously noted high-quality and accurate renders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G and many other new products long before their announcement.
The specs of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
The smartphone should be available next summer, but some of the key features of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 have already leaked online. The source claims the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will feature a 6.9-inch screen with narrower bezels and a smaller camera opening. It will also support 120Hz. The first Galaxy Z Flip has a 60 Hz 6.7-inch screen.
We also expect that the external screen will increase, so its diagonal will increase from 2.2 to 3.3 inches. Ross Young, founder of research companies Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch, said the smartphone’s external screen will be smaller than the Motorola Razr (2.7 inches).
