Although it isn’t worse than previous smartphone leaks, Samsung could be fuming over the recent flood of unofficial information about its upcoming foldable phones. the corporate has reportedly been trying to clamp down on those leaks, perhaps without much success. As proof, the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s complete specs have only recently been published, unofficially in fact, and now it’s the Galaxy Z Flip 3’s time to spill all the beans even before Samsung gets the prospect to travel on stage.
Unlike the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, which somehow qualified because the Galaxy Z Flip 2, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 may be a true upgrade in every sense of the word. Inside, you’ve got the newest Snapdragon 888, for instance, though it retains the 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage option. That’s not the sole thing that has changed, of course, and its external shows the even big picture, almost literally, too.
Samsung has expanded the Galaxy Z Flip 3’s Cover Display to a 1.9-inch 512×260 AMOLED screen, up from the 1.1-inch 300×112 of its predecessor. That larger screen comes in handy for viewing notifications and using external cameras for selfies. Thereon note, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 also doubles the most cameras, now comprised of two 12MP sensors for wide and ultra-wide cameras, respectively.
That said, WinFuture also notes a couple of things that may disappoint those trying to find a premium phone within the Galaxy Z Flip 3. there’s still no microSD card slot, but there’s no support for WiFi 6 either. However, Samsung does add an IPX8 rating, which suggests the foldable phone is waterproof but not dustproof.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be announced on August 11 and is predicted to launch every week or two later. The rumor mill has put a 1,099 EUR tag, matching earlier speculation of lower prices for a minimum of this foldable phone.
