Galaxy Z Flip3: new high-quality renders integrate the next-gen Samsung clamshell's latest leaks
The rumored 2021 Samsung clamshell foldable would technically be its series' second generation, yet may be called the Galaxy Z Flip3 anyway so as to bring it into line with the predicted Z Fold3. Some recent images alleged to be genuine marketing material depict the device as reprising its "cover display", albeit one of much more generous dimensions compared to its predecessor.
This shell-mounted panel could in fact be said to be inspired by the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, as it stretches all the way along the device's top edge to meet its new dual camera array. The display is slated to be up to 1.83 inches in diagonal length, compared to 1.1 inches in the original Z Flip and its 5G refresh.
Therefore, it might have the scope for much more effective and useful functions. According to the latest "Z Flip3" renders, generated by Snoreyn for LetsGoDigital, they mostly consist of notification previews, which it may well be able to do better compared to the first generation.
These new high-res (up to 4K) images also show the phone's main, supposedly 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display. This, again, would be an upgrade over its forebears; on the other hand, it is projected to remain lumped with a punch-hole selfie camera whereas the higher-end Z Fold3 is slated to upgrade to under-display technology instead.
The new renders imagine the Z Flip3 in 2 new colors (dark gray and white), although the latest tips hint at many more for the phone, beige, blue, green and "light violet" included. These new styles may be confirmed or denied at Samsung's next Unpacked event, likely to be held in July or August 2021.
