What du low Flip 2?
The next two versions of smartphones with a screen folding horizontally (Z Fold) or vertically (Z Flip) would thus be entitled to an unusual presentation in July while summer is generally reserved for the Galaxy Note. But we still do not know if the flagship Samsung will still be in the catalog at the end of the year, the rumor announcing its imminent end. The two more original devices could then occupy the end of the year left vacant and take their presentation distance with the Galaxy S range.
After the vagaries of production encountered last year with the pandemic, it is difficult to say if this can be a new calendar for Samsung or a way to preserve itself by anticipating possible problems and by defining a “shooting window” more than an actual release date.
But one thing is almost certain: the Z Fold 2 and Z Flip have many successors pending. Because before talking about a possible Z Flip 3, the Z Flip 2 should already have pointed the tip of its nose. It was rumored until then that its arrival was scheduled for spring, the first of five foldable models announced this year at Samsung.
According to several rumors relayed byGSMArena, the Z Fold 3 could revert to a plastic coating instead of its ultra-thin glass, but with a photo module quite close to that of the Galaxy S21 Ultra and possible compatibility with the S Pen stylus. He would opt for an internal screen of 7.55 inches and 6.21 inches on its outer facade once closed. Its price should remain the same as that of the Z Fold 2, around 2000 euros.
It remains to be seen what this mysterious Z Flip 3 would be when the second variation is not yet there. We are talking about the arrival of a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a screen extended to 6.7 inches, a larger external screen and therefore much easier to use than for notifications alone. Last year, the first Z Flip of the name had benefited from a double exposure with the launch at the end of the year of a version ready for 5G.
