The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is featured in images and video for the first time. These renderings, based on data from several patents, are the result of a collaboration between Pigtou, a seller specializing in accessories for smartphones and tablets, and the leaker known @xleaks7. The opportunity for us to discover two potential versions, with a double and a triple folding.
After a first Galaxy Fold far from perfect, Samsung transformed the test this summer 2020 with the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Now, fans of the brand are waiting for the brand’s next foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 3. For now, the device remains a mystery, and we must settle for some rumors and corridor noises about it.
Thus, we recently learned that the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 would be modeled on that of the Z Fold 2, or about 2000 euros. In addition, according to revelations from a South Korean media outlet, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could carry a selfie sensor under the foldable screen, thanks to proprietary technology.
But this Friday, December 24, 2020, the specialist seller Pigtou and the renowned leaker David Kowalsky aka @xleaks7 spoil us with new 3D concepts of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. These designs are based on data from several Samsung patent applications. With this information, @xleaks7 was able to create two distinct models of the Galaxy Z Fold 3: one with a double folding, and another with a triple folding.
For the first model, it differs from the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in the sense that the device does not bend in the middle, but on both sides. So there are two hinges on each side, suggesting that the Z Fold 3 will keep a Tablet format, even before folding. Once the two extensions are opened, you actually end up with a large tablet comparable to an iPad.
The foldable part on the left houses the quadruple photo sensor, while the right side is occupied by a slab and the famous selfie sensor under the screen mentioned above. Then the leaker came up with a version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 with a triple folding. In this case, the hinges remain on the sides, with the difference that they bend in opposite directions. As a result, it is possible to obtain either a rather thick smartphone format, or to switch to a tablet.
