They would be the first foldables with such a feature.

Making the outer screen even smaller to 5.4 inch will render it unusable for most tasks with that awkward aspect ratio.
Huawei IMO has got it right this year where the outer screen on the foldable is no different than using a normal phone and when you open it up, it gives you that huge tablet real estate.
Too bad the Huawei foldable is too expensive without proper play services support.

I'd be really surprised to see IP certification on a foldable screen smartphone for real, even if it's just IP53 or IP54, let alone IP68. With a lot of moving components underneath the folding screen, that does sound optimistic to me. Even LG can only go as far as IP54 for the swivelling screen Wing 5G.

This is great. I also wish Samsung makes the fold 2 like the huawei mate x2...wider front screen, no gap between screens when folded, barely visible crease etc. Making it wider can also enable samsung to provide a slot for the S pen.

Interesting. Thanks for this rumor

Hmmm IP53???

All I care about is sdcard support and Spen included with Fold3 nothing else matters.

Samsung real good at diversionary tactics and over pricing products with less features that won't be me.

What did you do Samsung???
Just when I was ready to buy an Mi 11 Ultra, you get the Z Fold 3 with IP rating??
Now I am confused 😕
