Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 may have lower cameras than Galaxy S21
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might just be the most expensive phone of the year when it lands, but if the latest leak turns out to be correct, it almost certainly won’t have the best cameras.
According to the leaker Yogesh, speaking to 91Mobiles, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have a triple lens rear camera, with the three sensors being 12MP. They didn’t give more details than that, but it could mean that the phone has identical cameras to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which are a step back from those of the Samsung Galaxy S21, not to mention the Samsung Galaxy S21. Ultra.
Presumably, these cameras will play the main roles, ultra-wide and telephoto, but the source did not say. What they said is that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will apparently have a 16 MP sub-screen camera on the main screen and a 10 MP camera on the outer cover screen – which we suppose, will be in a punched hole.
The other leaked specs aren’t much more impressive, with this source claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have a Snapdragon 888 chipset (although the Snapdragon 888 Plus has now been announced) and up to 512GB of storage, which is the same amount as its predecessor.
This chipset claim is one we’ve just heard elsewhere, as SamMobile spotted the phone on Geekbench (a benchmarking platform), with a Snapdragon 888 chipset listed with Android 11 and 12GB of RAM – an amount which again corresponds to the Z Fold 2.
While we take these leaks with a pinch of salt, we’ve heard most of those specs before, so there’s a good chance they’re right – which would mean the Z Fold 3’s specs could be less than that. avant-garde on the Board.
Retain components to reduce costs
But that might not be the worst thing, because the biggest problem with the Z Fold line is its price, and we’ve heard rumors before that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be up to 20% less. expensive than its predecessor.
If Samsung achieves this by offering only modest spec upgrades, it’s a compromise we could be okay with, especially since it’s all about an under-display camera and stylus support, so it’s not like there’s nothing new here.
Either way, we should know the truth soon, as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely land before long, and Yogesh also has news, claiming that it will be unveiled in the second week of August and then go on sale in the United States and United Kingdom at the end of August, India having obtained it in September.
This announcement date is slightly at odds with an earlier leak of August 3, but in any case, it seems very likely that we’ll see the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 in August.
