Samsung will soon launch its next set of foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is expected to bring various improvements over its predecessor, including a bigger cover display and a faster processor. However, the company doesn’t seem to be upgrading the battery capacity or the charging speed, which is a bit disappointing.
The Chinese variant of the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which has model number SM-F7110, passed through the 3C certification process yesterday. The database reveals that the upcoming foldable smartphone will likely ship with Samsung’s EP-TA200 charger, which has a maximum power output of 15W (9.0V and 1.67A). Fans were hoping that Samsung would include a 25W charger with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, but it doesn’t look like that’s happening. The certification also confirms that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 features 5G connectivity.
Galaxy Z Flip 3 expected specs
The Galaxy Z Flip’s design was recently leaked, showcasing its bigger (1.83-inch) cover display and a rearranged dual-camera setup. The phone is expected to come equipped with the Snapdragon 888 processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB internal storage. It will most likely come with Android 11 out of the box and get three major Android OS updates as per Samsung’s promise. It will be powered by a 3,300mAh battery made by Chinese firms.
The upcoming clamshell-style Galaxy smartphone is rumored to come with a 6.7-inch Foldable AMOLED Infinity-O display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. If this information is true, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 could be Samsung’s first clamshell-style foldable phone with a high-refresh-rate screen. We had exclusively revealed that it features an IP rating for dust and water resistance. Other features could include a 10MP camera on the internal screen and a 12MP+12MP dual-camera setup on the outside.
The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is expected to cost much lower than the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. It could cost as low as $999 or as high as $1,199, which is at least $250 lower than its predecessor. Samsung could offer it in various colors, including black, dark blue, green, light purple, matte gray (with a beige hue), violet/dark pink, and white.
