Here’s what the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could look like
New concept renders of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 courtesy of Concept Creator and LetsGoDigital show off a foldable device that builds upon the success of the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Its rear panel is quite similar to the one featured on the existing model, only this time around it uses a Galaxy S21-like camera design that blends into the metal frame and incorporates three sensors.
Will the Z Fold 3 offer under-screen camera tech?
Speaking of the cameras, these Galaxy Z Fold 3 concept renders envision the foldable with under-display technology for the selfie cameras, allowing for an even more immersive experience on both displays.
Samsung is working hard on the next-gen camera tech and, although it hasn’t made the cut on the upcoming Galaxy S21 series, it can’t be ruled out just yet for the company’s next foldable product.
This setup is coupled with extremely thin bezels and a metal frame that’s home to a side-mounted fingerprint scanner rather than an in-screen implementation, although this is down to the form factor.
There is a speaker on the bottom of this concept device and a USB-C port too. But because the Galaxy Z series is Samsung’s vision of the future, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack.
Expect Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 and much more
Like other high-end Samsung devices released this year, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 should arrive with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 on the inside. A minimum of 12GB of RAM and 256GB seems extremely likely too.
There’s no word on the battery capacity just yet, but the Galaxy Z Fold 2 offered a 4,500mAh cell and Samsung probably won’t go any lower than that with its next model. It should ship with Android 11 and the latest version of One UI straight out of the box, though, so the operating system’s battery drain will be minimal.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 announcement and price
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 should make its international debut in August at a dedicated Unpacked event, possibly alongside its highly anticipated sibling — the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
It’s unclear how Samsung will choose to price the foldable, but it’s unlikely to be much cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The good news is that Samsung recently confirmed plans to make the Galaxy Z series more accessible. So if you can’t afford the Galaxy Z Fold 3 or even a discounted Galaxy Z Fold 2, the rumored Galaxy Z Fold Lite could be the one for you.
