New Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 renders surface

07 July 2021
It's been hotly debated whether the Z Fold3 5G would have a punch-hole or under-display camera.

I hope they add a free watch and buds for the preorders, I was planning to buy note 21, but I guess they are forcing me to move to the foldables before I'm confident enough. On the other hands - it seems like they will sell me again the good old 12mpx sensor.

25W only? At least give 45W. I had a hard time waiting my zfold2 fully charging 😑

Generally i am a fan of the note series. I was awaiting the much anticipated note 20 last year but resigned as there was no real change over the note 10 which i am using now and the note 20 was ugly. I never thought about having a foldable phone but as samsung is cancelling the note line (at least for this year) , i might consider the fold. However what i find surprising is how people are excited about the so called "leaks". Folks these are no leaks but samsung themselves releasing this to the market to check how the market reacts to it ahead ofnthe launch in order to avoid getting surprised on launched date, also the leak by samsung will help them prepare for questions coming from the public some of the complaints or questions will even be already tackled in the Unpacked event. This is purely strategic from them... so yes it is good to see the render ahead of time but its no insider information but controlled release of information by samsung. It is the same with every other company irrespective of the market (phone,car,tv etc industry).
Concerning the SD slot case , i don t understand where the issue comes from ? If you are afraid of using cloud or do not have internet then you can always transfer data using a usb c cable to your computer. I doubt someone really needs to have terras of space available on the fly and if it is the case you can always plug in a usb c to sd card reader (they are so small that you can have them plugged all the time, its barely noticeable.)
About the 3.5mm jack, if you really want quality go buy a mp3 player or an ipod whatever, people who can really differentiate and see quality between gold plated 3.5mm jacks and galaxy buds are limited. So in any case samsung wont release a phone with 3.5mm jack for 2% of their customers. They prefer even lose this 2% of customer and continue with people who will use galaxy buds and pay.
Next is the decision of samsung of not releasing the note series this year, be sure that this is not because samsung does not have ideas about how the note should look like and how to improve it. Believe me, they have an army of people working in R&D and they have hundreds of ideas GOOD ideas on new notes series. The real reason behind this is that samsung is trying to push people to switch to fold. Last year the sales of the fold were low, and samsung is doing an experiment by releasing only fold and flip series and see how the market will behave. If they get the numbers higher and get the notes customers to buy the fold then they wont release any note further. Why? 1: they dont have to release yet another flagship (s series, fold , flip) its enough. The revenue on the fold is much higher (take into account that people will need to buy the s pen , in the note it had to be included and it would be difficult for samsung not to include one with it. Much easier with the fold which does not have a dedicated slot for it.

Believe me those companies are masters of manipulation.

Last and least , whatever you say and how you complain you wont change anything. And the best is : most of you will buy the phone anyway.

Anonymous, 07 Jul 2021Hahaha! funny, how u still worry bout those features on a p... moreThey may be considered as older features, but the last time I checked there weren't any features that are better than those:
SD card slot (for backup and storage purposes) : when they'll make replaceable micro SSDs for smartphones, then I will stop asking for SD cards slot. Cloud is also forcing you to always have an internet connection and it's also forcing you to post your data on someone's server which I don't want.
3.5mm jack: Go to any respectable audiophile or music studio and just ask them what headphones are they using. They will all say the same : wired headphones that have gold-plated 3.5mm or 6.5mm jack + good amplifiers. These are the best so far and no matter how hard they try, wireless will never get close to the same quality. Especially when you have sound lagging.
Also, who the heck is so stpd to say yes to headphones that actually require charging??!
Just because they were not invented yesterday, it doesn't mean that they're ancient technology. The automobiles were invented more than 100 years ago, yet EVERYONE is still driving!
And as a lost thing, for 1800 euros, I'm expecting it to have ALL the possible features available, on the spot and more!
But they won't even give you a free charger!

K, 08 Jul 2021How many friggin times will they surface the renders? Daily?I guess it will be daily in not so distant future (especially for the Fold 3, not so for Z Flip 3), as this ultra premium device needs a constant hype in order to attract pre-orders and sales.

AlienKiss, 07 Jul 2021Does it have the SD card slot and the 3.5mm jack? If not, ... moreHahaha! funny, how u still worry bout those features on a premium product in 2021.

If you want a premium product, then you have be ready for premium accessories/services that come with it.

For example

No headphone jack then get a TWS

No sd card slot then go for cloud storage.

If you want a headphone jack and sd slot then get a mid range phone.

Your complaints won't make it sell less or make does features come back.

Anonymous, 07 Jul 2021I hope there will be lite version with slighly lower specs ... moreThere will be no note series smartphone from Samsung this year so it is very likely that we will see lower end fold 3.

Where's that guy who hates under-display selfie cam? I'm ready for another lecture on why they're so bad.

  • Jay

Is the battery really 4,400mah or two of them

This is great, I hope they manage to find a solution to the plastic screen protector, to make it at least more resistant to scratch, otherwise this is awesome.

that's nice

  • Discoverdose

The hype starts to become strong.
The best scenario would be :
- Z fold 3 for 1600€ with galaxy watch 4 for pre order gift.

But I think that the fold 3 will be 1800€ with free buds live... fabulous..
