Samsung’s new foldable — the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 — might not be launching for a few months, but thanks to a new video, we have some idea as to how they might look.
A tipster named Anthony, who owns the GaloxYT YouTube channel, showed off some images of these upcoming devices, in what looks like Samsung’s own promo material.
The video highlights a two-tone finish and a more squared-off look for the Z Flip 3 — and in my opinion, it looks gorgeous. Plus, the tipster noted that the body of the phone is covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus, making it tougher and more likely to withstand falls.
The black part covered by glass hosts two 12-megapixel snappers: the main sensor and an ultra-wide sensor. The new display on the cover to show notifications also appears to be much larger than the tiny 1.1-inch display of the Galaxy Z Flip.
To unlock the device, we’ll expectedly see a fingerprint scanner mounted on the power button — that’s better than having an under-display scanner for a foldable phone.
The video mentions that the Z Flip 3 will have improved camera performance, stereo speakers, and upgraded flex mode that allows the phone to be used whilst half-folded.

What’s more, the phone will have support for 25W fast charging and an IP rating for water and dust protection. The Z Fold 3 will also have S-Pen support — just like the S21 Ultra.
Both these devices will probably to launch in July. Hopefully, more leaks like these will give us more details as to what to expect from these foldables.
