The Samsung Galaxy Fold series has already seen incredible improvement in its 2nd release and as all eyes are now looking at what the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will deliver. We finally have some insight as well as news on the more budget friendly offering coming early next year.
Cozyplanes has revealed in a tweet that the Samsung Galaxy Z fold 3 will be launching in Q3 of next year (which was always likely). He reports that the external screen will be a 7″ LTPO TFT panel. LTPO technology allows for an adaptive refresh rate that can change from 1Hz to 120Hz in order to preserve battery when 120Hz isn’t beneficial. He also mentions the new UTG (ultra thin glass) which we are expecting to be thicker on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. He also tells us that the External display will be a 4″ display
At the same time, leading Samsung will release Fold3, which will bring a lot of innovative technologies. CUP (Camera under Panel), S Pen, second-generation UTG, etc.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) November 18, 2020
Now this isnt really new news but its nice to hear it from other sources. Reliable leaker Ice universe previously tweeted to say that with the Galaxy Z fold 3 we will get the in display selfie camera, The second generation UTG (Ultra Thin Glass) and S pen support. This was further backed up in a report from ETNews who stated that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have in an display selfie camera & be coming in Q3 of 2021

According to cozyplanes leak the Galaxy Z Fold Lite is going to be the next folding smartphone release from samsung and will be releasing in Q1 of 2021. Its expected to launch alongside the S21 range although many expected to see it this year. Cozyplanes tweet tells us that we can expect the Galaxy Z Fold Lite to come with a 7″ internal display along with a 4″ external. We can pretty much expect just a cheaper version of the fold 2.

Of course on top of all this when it comes to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 we can expect some very healthy ram and storage configurations & some reasonable camera configurations. The chipset is still unknown as we of course had the Snapdragon 888 recently announced, but with continuing rumours of the Exynos 2100 CPU outperforming the Snapdragon 888 it could be the 1st time we see a fold contain the Exynos. Of course we’ll have to wait to see if these rumours and reports hold any truth but with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S21 only around the corner then it wont be long until we find out.
