Samsung is expected to introduce the next version of its Galaxy Z Fold series at an Unpacked event later this year. Rumor now tells us that Samsung might have downgraded the cover display on the smartphone.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3, as the device is expected to be called, will likely come with a smaller cover display compared to its predecessor. The speculation is birthed from a recent leak by tipster @chunvn8888 on Twitter. The leak includes an image of a document showcasing some specifications of several upcoming smartphones, including Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be equipped with a 7.7-inch inner display and a 5.4-inch cover display as per the document. In comparison, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 sported a considerably bigger – 6.3-inch cover display.
Even though the cover display’s size will be smaller than the one on the previous-gen Samsung device, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will retain the same 25:9 aspect ratio and 2,260×816 resolution for it. As per several leaks in the past, both the cover and the principal display panel will offer a 120Hz refresh rate.
Other speculations on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 include a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, ample memory options as the ones seen on Galaxy S21 Ultra as support for S Pen. It might also feature water resistance up to a level, reports Android Central.
As for the Galaxy Flip 3, the document predicts that the device will come with a 6.8-inch primary display with a 25:9 aspect ratio. When folded, it will feature a 1.9-inch secondary display on top.
Samsung introduces its new foldable flagship this year to an international market that is likely to have such offerings from other OEMs.
