A lot about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 have not yet been revealed. However, new leaks have revealed a few details about these upcoming phones. Giving us an idea as to when they are likely to launch.
According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy Z fold 3 is likely to launch with at least 256GB of storage. It is not surprising, given that the Z fold 2 launched with similar storage space. The Galaxy Z fold 3 is also speculated to launch with Android 11 with Samsung’s One UI 3.5. It is also expected to have the model number SM-F926.
The Samsung Galaxy Z flip 3 on the other hand has been speculated to come with both 128GB and 256GB capacities based on recent leaks. This a little less than the 256GB storage found in the Z flip 2. Therefore, there is possibility the Z flip 3 will come at a starting price lower than the Z flip 2. The Z flip 3 is also said to run on Android 11 on One UI 3.5. Reports shows that the Z flip 3 will have a model number of SM-F711.
Earlier rumours about the Z fold speculated the introduction of a ‘Lite model’. However, recent leaks have not given any info to prove this speculation. This is not to say that the lite model isn’t coming. It simply means that no source has been able to confirm it.
