The Galaxy Z Flip 3 may be the best foldable phone of the year


Samsung is rumored to have started mass production of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and there seems to be quite a bit of information shared in regards to the larger of Samsung’s planned 2021 foldable smartphone launch. But the information for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 continues to trickle in, and now we have some more information about what the Z Flip 3 could bring.

According to @IceUniverse, the Z Flip 3 will sport thinner bezels around the display, along with a more narrow metal frame surrounding the device. Courtesy of the renders that were provided, the bezels won’t measure any wider than 3.8mm, as Samsung continues to do what it can to improve the design for these folding displays.

This was evidenced by the drastic difference between the original Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Fold 2, as it seemed like a completely different product. We could be in store for a similar change between the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Other rumors provided by @IceUniverse claim that Samsung won’t integrate its under-display camera, but will continue relying on the Infinity-O display cutout as we’ve seen on the Galaxy S21 and others. This is likely to help differentiate the Z Flip 3 from the Z Fold 3, but it could just be that Samsung wants to see how the community reacts to the in-display camera before bringing it to more devices.

Samsung has big plans for its foldable lineup in 2021, with reports suggesting the company is aiming to ship around seven million units between the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. But the same report claims that Samsung could think that the Z Flip 3 will be more the popular option, as we could see as many as four million units shipped, compared to the three million Z Fold 3 units.

We still aren’t sure as to when the devices will be announced, but it could be as early as July. This would come as little surprise given that the Galaxy S21 lineup was unveiled in January, and Samsung won’t want to wait too long before announcing its 2nd-half flagship models.
