Meanwhile, the second source is YouTuber Jon Prosser, who claims that Samsung will ship the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 on 27 August, while the Galaxy Watch4 and Galaxy Watch Active4 may roll out as soon as 11 August. Keep in mind that Weinbach’s tip emphasises on the event date, while Prosser’s focuses on the products’ release schedule. But as usual, there’s still a possibility that neither information is accurate until officially confirmed by Samsung themselves.
In terms of hardware specifications and features, not much is known for all four devices. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be the more interesting of the bunch, as unofficial sources such as Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) claims that it will be Samsung’s first smartphone to feature its Under-Display Camera (UDC) technology. Allegedly leaked images of the foldable phone reveals a somewhat similar form factor to its predecessors, sans a punch-hole cutout or notch on its inner display which corroborates to the UDC rumour.
Other than that, earlier leaks featuring the Galaxy Z Flip 3 shows, again, a similar form factor to foldable’s predecessor, but now with a new tiny display on the exterior shell. Its internal hardware and camera capabilities are still unknown at this time. Oh, and another thing you may have noticed is its name. Chronologically, there was never a Galaxy Z Flip 2 that was released prior to this. But in favour of the foldable series’ numbering system, Samsung is said to have skipped a number for the clamshell smartphone. This isn’t the first time the brand has done this, as it previously allowed its Note series to skip a number and jumped straight to the (now infamous) Galaxy Note 7.
