The samsung galaxy z fold 3 is looking incredible and i’ll be sharing the details. We’ve got more news on the samsung galaxy z fold three we’ve got news that it may be coming earlier as well as replacing the note we’ve also got a new z fold 3 render in use of a chipset and design change. If you’re a fan of samsung let me know down in the comments what device you’re your reading this on. So the first story of the day is about the samsung galaxy z fold 3 replacing the note there have been stories saying it will then more saying it won’t but in samsung’s 2020 financial results there was no mention of the note at all. it’s stated in the report in 2021 market demand is likely to recover with gradual recovery in the economy and accelerating expansion of the 5g market the mobile communications business aims to strengthen its leadership in the premium segment through the galaxy s21 series an expansion of the foldable category including the galaxy z fold and the z flip. The fact that they’ve mentioned all of the flagships except the note means there’s a good chance that it’s not going to be coming.
Next up we’ve got news that the samsung galaxy’s effort iii may also be coming sooner than we expected. Korean publication blow to reports that after a great reception with its predecessor we may actually see the galaxy’s effort free in may instead of august and as we’ve seen with many other manufacturers they’re bringing their releases forward. There was a previous leak about field testers already testing the z fold 3 so this could well be true if they are aiming for a march release. Now this field testing claim also came from random stuff too and to be fair he was the first one to be posting videos of the s21 plus so he has proved that he gets the devices early.
We’ve got many publications stating that the galaxy z fold 3 is going to be the first device with amd graphics this is thanks to a tweet from ice universe that stated that we’re gonna see samsung release a chipset with an amd gpu in the second or third quarter of this year. Now this would fall in line with the z fold three launch in may so the leaks do all add up, but ice universe also states that Samsung may change the release time of the new processor. Now the exynos has shown big improvements this year and i think an amd gpu is only going to push this further forward. Well it would be great to see it this early in the galaxy z fold 3 I’m still a little bit skeptical and think we may have to wait until next year now next up we’ve got lots of news about a new design for the galaxy z fold 3.
Many blogs are stating that we’ll now be getting a rolling extended device instead of the fold now this is because of a new pattern that was discovered by let’s go digital but we have to be realistic here Samsung files so many patents they also file them way in advance so if we’re seeing it now then it’s very unlikely to be for the z-fold 3. Its predecessor was very successful and the device is growing in popularity so i don’t see Samsung strength too far away from that design this morning a new concept render for the galaxy z fold 3 was published by waka khan and this is pretty much the device we’re going to see. The galaxy z fold 3 is going to be an improved version of its predecessor minor adjustments to the design but of course better hardware, and if the leaks are correct then we’ll also get s pen support. So overall the Samsung galaxy z fold 3 is looking great it’s nice that we’re finally getting more and more information and a may launch would be great for those impatient ones it’s currently only one report stating may so until it gets further weight then i’m going to assume it’s august of course we’ve already got plenty of information about the specs design and the pricing of the Samsung galaxy z fold 3. So we’re going to run through it all now.
We’ll get right into it the inner display is likely to remain a similar size considering we’ve already got trimmed down bezels we can expect a 7.6 inch dynamic amoled display with a resolution of 1768 by 2208, and this will have a 120hz refresh rate the front screen is likely to remain the same. As well which is a 6.2 inch super amoled with a resolution of 2260×816. The biggest change here is of course can be the screen protection with 60 micrometer ultra thin glass that not only helps with the durability, but should also provide a nicer touch experience for the user when it comes to the selfie camera we’ve got no information yet. Many reports and rumors are hinting at the first in-display selfie camera but we’ve got no idea what sensor or lens Samsung are using for this on the rear. It’s likely to be a triple or a quad camera setup, now Samsung tend to keep things similar across their range so i would expect the new camera module that we’re seeing in the s range to be present and it’s likely that they’ll be using the similar 12 megapixel sensors instead of going with the 108 megapixel hm2. When it comes to ram and storage Samsung tend to push things high with the fold models so I would estimate the galaxy z fold 3 to have 16 gigs of ddr5 ram, this will be coupled with 128 256 or 512 storage it’s most likely gonna be powered by the snapdragon 875 plus and the exynos equivalent whatever they decide to name it. There are rumors of a 5 000 milliamp hour battery, but personally I don’t see that happening they’re likely to remain at a similar size so with improvements of space internally in new tech. I would estimate a minor increase so maybe something like 4 600 milliamp hours it will of course ship with one ui 3 based on android 11, and being so early on color variants just cannot be confirmed it will probably have as much water protection as they can. But we’re unlikely to see any official ip ratings due to its difficult to waterproof design. We’re expecting an august launch and if things carry on as normal when it comes to the pricing we of course know it’s going to be a lot so we can expect between$2,000-2,100 if we see the usual price increment now of course a lot of this is just sensible estimates on top of the leaks we have because we’re so far away from launch. As always though i would like to know your thoughts in the comments who out there is waiting for the samsung galaxy z fold 3 and when do you think it will be released
