Alleged leak says Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 will cost only a $50 more than its predecessor – gizmochina

Recent reports said that Samsung postponed the launch of the next Galaxy Flip to a later date in order to evade the cannibalization of Galaxy S21. This clamshell foldable smartphone is so far rumored to be called Galaxy Z Flip3 and not Z Flip2. Now, a Twitter user has posted alleged specs and price of the device.

According to the user(@TheGalox_), Galaxy Z Flip3 will cost about $1,499. If this report is true, then the 3rd gen Flip will cost only $50 more than its predecessor. Previously, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G debuted for a price tag of $1,449.

Apart from this, he also talks about a few details of the upcoming foldable. He says that the device will have a Glass display(i.e., UTG), with a 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED display with thinner bezels. To this, famous Ross Young(@DSCCRoss) replies that the display will be a LTPO and measure 6.70-inches which we already know.

Further, he mentions the processor of the smartphone as Snapdragon 888 SoC which suggests that Samsung might launch before the H1 of 2021. Usually, Qualcomm updates its flagship SoC with a ‘+’ at the beginning of the second half of the year.

And companies rush to include it in their flagships. For instance, we saw the Z Flip 5G boast the new Snapdragon 865+ in July 2020.

That said, he also mentions things like smaller punch-hole, New Hinge, Better Water-resistance(could be longer submerge times with IP68).
