It was previously revealed that Xiaomi will release its Mi Mix 4 flagship in August, which will be the company’s first full-screen flagship this year with an off-screen camera.
Xiaomi is not alone. Samsung will unveil its annual flagship in August, with the same off-screen camera option.
According to EVLeaks, Samsung will launch its first Galaxy Z Fold3 on August 11 at an event called Galaxy Yunpacked.
According to the exposed images, Galaxy Z Fold 3 has an off-screen camera design for the first time, with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX471 CMOS. Compared to the previous generation of hole-out design, Galaxy Z Fold 3 not only has a better screen look, but also has a significantly upgraded front-facing camera.
In addition, Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series flagship processor, possibly the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus, which is expected to come with 12GB of RAM and a high refresh rate screen.
Notably, Samsung will also be releasing Galaxy Z Flip3, a foldable phone that folds up and down. Like the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Flip3 has a side screen on the back that shows basic features like incoming calls and App notifications.
