There have been plenty of rumours that Samsung plans to release two foldable smartphones globally this year, with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 succeeding the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G, respectively. However, The Korea Herald alleges that Samsung has a third foldable in the pipeline, too.

Apparently, Samsung will release two clamshell smartphones under the Galaxy Z Flip brand. One will be the already-leaked Galaxy Z Flip 3, and the other the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Lite. Unsurprisingly, The Korea Herald expects the Lite to be a cheaper answer to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and, by extension, the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

The Korea Herald notes that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Lite will be a 'mass-market model'. The website has not detailed any specifications for the Flip 3 Lite. However, it implies that the device has a 1.9-inch cover display, as has been shown with the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Additionally, The Korea Herald expects Samsung to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip 3 Lite simultaneously alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Watch 4 series. Reportedly, Samsung has scheduled its next Galaxy Unpacked event for August 11 at 14:00 UTC. The South Korean company is yet to confirm this, though.
