Foldable smartphones with a sense of design and technology seem to help consumers alleviate the aesthetic fatigue of smartphones. As early as the end of last year, there was news that this year’s folding screen market will usher in a big explosion. This includes companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, Vivo, etc., all releasing their own foldable smartphones. However, as of today, only Xiaomi of the lot has a foldable device. A few days ago, news about two Samsung foldable smartphones – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and Galaxy Z Fold3 hit the web. Among them, the former adopts a folding or up and down design. The overall shape of this smartphone feels like the traditional flip phone.
Today, a set of renderings of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 are streaming online. As can be seen from the figure, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 screen has a circular punch hole to place the front lens. This means that this smartphone will not come with the under-display camera technology.
From the speculations so far, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 comes with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display. This screen supports an aspect ratio of 25:9, a 1.9-inch secondary screen at the rear, and a 120Hz refresh rate for the main screen. On the rear, it uses a vertical dual-camera design.
In addition, the rendering shows the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 in four colours. This device will be available in at least four colours including brown, black, dark green, and light purple. This far exceeds the colour options for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 speculations
In terms of core specifications, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 should use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus flagship processor. It is worth mentioning that not long ago, this device passed the 3C certification. This means that the launch of this device is just around the corner. According to the 3C certification page, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 supports “ancestral” 15W fast charging, which is consistent with the fast charging specifications of the previous generation, Galaxy Z Flip 5G.
Due to the fragile nature of foldable smartphones, many people do not think it is necessary. For now, foldable phones are a luxury that a huge part of the market can not afford. They cost thousands of dollars and there is no guarantee of their performance. This is because the industry is still at the early stages of foldable phone development. Thus, there are bound to be some mishaps here and there.
