The leaks on Samsung’s upcoming foldable phones are on the rise these days, though they haven’t been too frequent for the clamshell. Thanks to some past leaks we do know a few details but the fresh leak just breaks all the barriers and pours out almost everything about the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The tech blog Giznext has managed to obtain the renders of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. These renders show the device from every angle. Unlike, the Z Fold-series, the Z Flip follows the clamshell form factor.
As evident from the renders, the Z Flip 3 5G is following a new dual-tone design on the back panel. Furthermore, the phone is still carrying dual cameras on the back but there is a slight difference in their arrangement. The two cameras are now aligned vertically instead of horizontally. These are the two visible differences in the appearance of the upcoming clamshell foldable phone and the last year’s model.
One of the images shows the cover display is also bigger than the previous model’s. According to the details splurged in the report, the size of the cover display is 1.9-inch, compared to 1.1-inch of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. The report further claims the Galaxy Z Flip gets an under-display selfie camera as well, something we have been speculating for a long time now. Previously, it was rumored that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will feature the under-display camera, but a recently leaked render from a very known tipster knock-backs all those previous claims.
Well, moving on, the latest report goes on to state the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is also expected to get a bigger battery life than its predecessor. The tech blog claims the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G will be offered in so many color options – dark green, light violet, beige, grey, black, pink, dark blue, and white.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is expected to be powered by Snapdragon 888 processor. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is rumored to be coming in the first week of August alongside the Z Fold 3. The report also states the Z Flip 3 might cost $1400.
In case you went out of the loop for some reason, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the successor of the Galaxy Z Flip phone launched back in 2020. Samsung is reportedly skipping the “Flip 2” name in order to keep things in sync with its other line of foldable phones that is the Galaxy Z Fold. This year Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and hence the name Z Flip 3 as well.
