Samsung’s next event, where the company is slated to reveal its new foldable phones, the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3, is still weeks away. However, thanks to leaker Evan Blass, we’ve just gotten the first official (well, official-looking) image of the new devices, along with some key specs.
In a tweet Monday, Blass revealed that the Samsung Z Flip 3 will have a 6.7-inch internal, and a 1.9-inch external display, as well as a dual 12-megapixel camera on the back, and a 10-megapixel selfie camera on the front.
As for the larger Z Fold 3, it’ll have a 7.6-inch internal, and a 6.2-inch external display. It’ll have a triple 12-megapixel rear camera, and two selfie cameras, a 10-megapixel one on the cover, and a 4-megapixel one inside. Customers will be able to purchase two optional S-Pens (a Pro and a Fold Edition) as well.
Both devices will be water resistant up to IPX8 specs.
As for the image Blass has shared, it certainly looks like an official Samsung press photo. The devices in the image are shown from the rear, with those large rear camera lenses clearly visible, and a water splash is there to assure you of that water resistance.
Notably, the Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 2 are similarly sized, and have similar specs to those outlined above, but they weren’t officially water resistant.
Samsung’s getting ready to ‘unpack’ some shiny new foldables this August
The news comes less than a day after Samsung officially confirmed that the new foldables will support Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, which sort of makes them an unofficial Galaxy Note replacement.
The new devices will be officially unveiled at a virtual Samsung event on August 11.
