Prominent leaker Max Weinbach had claimed three days ago that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 would be announced on August 3, 2021. Moreover, YouTuber Jon Prosser had claimed that Samsung’s next foldable smartphones would be launched on August 27. A report coming straight out of South Korea claims that the foldable devices won’t be launched on August 3.
Galaxy Z Flip 3, Z Fold 3 could be unveiled in the second half of the first week of August
According to a report from Yonhap News, Samsung would unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in the second half of the first or second week of August 2021. The publication says that Samsung’s H2 flagship announcements usually happen on Fridays, so the announcement date could be August 6 or August 13. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3’s launch date is claimed to be August 27, 2021.
The report also claims that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event in August would set the stage for the unveiling of three more devices: Galaxy Buds 2, Galaxy Watch 4, and Galaxy Watch Active 4.
Galaxy S21 FE could launch in the fall of 2021
The news agency says that the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE has been pushed back to Fall 2021 (late September or later) to focus Samsung’s marketing on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Apparently, Samsung wants to focus on the launch and marketing of its next-generation foldable phones and not distract consumer attention by launching a bar-shaped smartphone. The shortage of Snapdragon 888 chipsets is also said to have influenced the delay in the launch of the Galaxy S21 FE.
The new report also claims that Samsung has developed a “hybrid S Pen” that improves the durability of the UTG (Ultra Thin Glass) protection on the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s foldable display. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a bigger cover display. Moreover, the Galaxy Buds 2 are expected to be affordable truly wireless earphones, and they would lack ANC (Active Noise Cancellation).
Both foldable phones—Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3—are expected to feature thinner and lighter designs to improve usability. The report also mentions our exclusive news regarding Samsung’s upcoming foldable phones to be priced 20% lower than their predecessors. The Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch Active 4 will run Wear OS, which is jointly developed by Google and Samsung.
