Samsung Electronics will launch a new folding smartphone within three months and is expected to hold a new product launch event in July. Previously, the appearance of Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 and Z Flip3 has been appeared, showing that the new Z Flip folding screen mobile phone adopts a two-color design with dual cameras, and is slightly larger than the previous model.
This time Samsung seems to pay special attention to the sturdiness and durability of folding-screen phones. Leaked pictures show that Samsung has provided Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for both the front and rear of the Z Flip, which is more scratch-resistant and can protect the phone from being dropped at a height of 2 meters and below without being damaged. In addition, the foreign media LetsGoDigital recently confirmed that the frame and screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 have become more durable than before.
In terms of water resistance, due to the new machine’s foldable structure, Samsung Z Flip 3 will not be completely waterproof and may support IP57 dust and water resistance. But in any case, it is an improvement to the current situation.
In terms of accessories, for the Z Flip generation, Samsung has designed a leather case consisting of two parts. It can protect the upper and lower parts of the phone, but it cannot protect the hinge. Samsung seems to have developed several new solutions this year. Samsung Electronics submitted a utility patent named “Foldable Electronic Device Protective Case” to the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) in October 2020, demonstrating Samsung’s various methods to protect the hinge from drops and impacts.
This year, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 should have a variety of color options. The current exposure information shows that there will be at least gray, beige, purple, and green. In addition, there have long been rumors that Samsung Z Flip 3 is also available in black, white, blue, and pink. But presumably, not all colors will be released in all regions.
In terms of configuration, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 may be equipped with a 6.7-inch dynamic AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120Hz and an external screen size expanded to 1.83 inches (originally 1.1 inches), which will greatly improve the user experience. The 100,000-pixel punch-hole camera on the front of the phone may be retained, and the rear camera may also remain unchanged, consisting of two 12-megapixel cameras. Samsung did not put the Z Flip3’s focus on the camera but tried to make this phone more durable.
In addition, the battery capacity of the Samsung Z Flip 3 will be similar to the previous generation, 3300mAh, which is likely to support 25W wired and 15W wireless charging.
