The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 (not its official name) is slimmer and lighter than the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but costs the same. A tipster quoting the Samsung 2020 Investor Forum has said the company plans to bring foldable technology to a more established market. Another tipster shared that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t be more expensive than the Galaxy Z Fold 2, as has been the trend with Samsung’s flagship phones. Samsung also reportedly announced during the conference that the majority of users prefer a big screen, distinctive design, and impressive screen size.
According to a tweet from the well-known tipster Cozyplanes, the rumored Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be thinner and lighter than the Galaxy Z Fold 2 of the previous generation. The pictures shared by the tipster show that Samsung wants to make the foldable category of smartphones known and bring it to the mainstream. The company reportedly shared these developments at its 2020 Investor Forum. Samsung reportedly found in its research that impressive screen size, business functionality, and unique design make people interested in foldable phones.
Another tipster with the username Mauri QHD announced on Twitter that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have the same price as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. However, this information should be absorbed with a pinch of salt, as even the tipster’s source said it can only be one possibility. If this turns out to be the case, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be priced at around $ 1,999 (around rupees 1.47,200) in the US. In India, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 goes for Rs. 1,49,999.
Last week, the rumored specs for the rumored Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 leaked. The phone is said to be equipped with a foldable 6.9-inch display, which this time has fewer creases. It can come with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The main display has thinner frames and a smaller hole design for the selfie camera. In terms of battery, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has been reported to be backed by a 3,900 mAh battery.
