The next Samsung Galaxy Fold is 'very likely' to have a reworked inner display with a much cleaner look than the company's past foldable smartphones

The next Galaxy Z Fold is very likely to a reworked inner display, according to a renowned leaker. Reportedly, Samsung plans to ditch the punch-hole camera from last year's Galaxy Z Fold2, which was an improvement on the Galaxy Fold's notch, itself.

Ice Universe has delivered an intriguing update on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 - one of at least two foldable smartphones that Samsung is rumoured to be releasing this year. According to the well-known Twitter account, Samsung is 'very likely to adopt UPC' for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, with UPC standing for Under Panel Camera.

In other words, Ice Universe believes that may be bringing an under-display camera to its next flagship foldable smartphone. The small inner camera in Galaxy Z Fold2 is already a huge improvement on the gargantuan notch of the Galaxy Fold, in our opinion. However, switching to a UPC would give the Galaxy Z Fold 3 a cleaner look, with no cameras distracting from the device's large internal display.

According to SamMobile, Samsung will ship the Galaxy Z Fold 3 with One UI 3.1, indicating that the device will probably arrive in the second half of 2021. The device, supposedly assigned the model number SM-F926, should come with at least 256 GB of storage, too.

Overall, we would be happy if Samsung released a Galaxy Z Fold 3 that resembled Ben Geskin's render above. Samsung borrowed the Note 20 series camera design for the Galaxy Z Fold 2, so the company re-using the one from the S21 series does not seem that far-fetched, especially if there is no new Note series for 2021.
