There are tons of leaks and rumors around Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3 phones. Up until now, we have learned what the two foldable phones could possess or what to expect. But now, with the fresh leak, we will learn about the design of these two phones.
The known tipster Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has shared the official-looking renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. These renders look no different from those real-life images that got leaked last month. But those leaked images couldn’t offer us the full look of the two phones like today’s leak. These renders offer us a clearer picture and we can tell what changes are coming along, at least for the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
As evident, the camera setup on the rear panel of the Z Fold 3 is now housed inside a strip-like module, compared to the last year’s large and protruding rectangular-shaped module. However, the phone still features three rear cameras. The tipster hasn’t shared any other details but it is believed that the Z Fold 3 still features a set up of a wide-angle camera, followed by an ultrawide and a telephoto lens.
Also, a hole punch on the internal display is clearly visible. This contradicts the earlier speculations that tipped the Z Fold 3 has an under-display camera (UPC). In fact, the location of this hole-punch is similar to the one present of the predecessor. However, it is possible the render is just acting as a placeholder for the under-display camera and conveying that the UPC will be located here. But, having said that, it doesn't appear to be the case in reality as the image looks more like an official promo shoot. It doesn't look like a rendered image or a made-up to look like so.
The picture also showcases an S Pen, indicating the phone also supports it, however, it appears this S Pen will come with special powers. As you’d see “Fold Edition” is laser-etched on the S Pen, indicating a specially crafted S Pen for the Z Fold 3.
The next picture shared by the tipster shows Fold 3 sitting next to the folded Galaxy Z Flip 3 phone. It appears the picture is some kind of promotional stuff where the two phones are posing for the camera. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a dual-tone design and a dual rear camera setup. The external screen looks bigger. This picture also confirms the names of the two phones.
The two phones are tipped to be coming in August this year. Let’s see if this suggestion turns into a reality.
