Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Z Fold3 on August 11, and it is already being certified at different markets ahead of its arrival. The latest listing revealed the phone had been approved in China, where it has appeared on TENAA with some key specs.
According to the certification, the SM-F9260 smartphone will be thinner than its predecessor Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, with 6.4 mm thickness when the device is unfolded. The Fold3 should also have an improved hinge, removing the air gap between both sides, meaning it will be thinner in both form factors.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G full dimensions are 128.1 x 158.2 x 6.4 mm when folded, and the footprint is pretty much the same as the previous phone. This means there wouldn’t be any major changes to the battery or the screen, and the TENAA listing confirms it - a 6.2” cover display and 4,500 mAh battery. We can also see the phone will run Android 11.
According to leaksters, the biggest change in the new phone will be the under-display camera under the big panel. Other features will be a Snapdragon 888 chipset, 12 GB RAM and an ultra-wide camera with autofocus.
TENAA has also listed the SM-F7110, which is the Galaxy Z Flip3, but there is no info on dimensions, battery or any other specs.
Thinner device means more fragile, smaller, battery, smaller camera sensors or even larger camera jumps despite small sensors, and more excuse for lack of headphone jack and SD slot. But all still with a high price tag..... but at least it's ...
The stylus listing has just been released and it supports older tablets and phones meaning it's still an EMR digitiser! I'm super happy about it :) On the downside the Bluetooth features require a USB C recharge.
A stylus will be there or not ??
