According to the most recent rumors, Samsung has decided to postpone the launch of its next foldable smartphone to a later date. Initially scheduled for the first months of the year, the date would have been postponed in order not to cannibalize the sales of the newcomers of the Galaxy S21 family. At the moment there are no confirmations on the possible denomination, but according to some rumors it should be Galaxy Z Flip 3 and not Z Flip 2 as many imagined. To increase the interest around this device, a user thought about it in these hours through a post appeared on Twitter, in which the alleged specifications and the sale price were published.
According to the user (@TheGalox_), the Galaxy Z Flip 3 could be marketed for $ 1.499, about $ 1.240 at the exchange rate. If this information were confirmed, the third-generation Flip would cost just $ 50 more than its predecessor. Considering that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is available in at a list price of 1.599 euros, it cannot be excluded that the new model can reach the same price or slightly higher, with a small increase justifiable by the presence of several new features. Further insiders report that the device will have a glass display (i.e. UTG), with a 120Hz dynamic AMOLED panel e even thinner bezels. To this, the famous Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) replies that the display will be an LTPO and will measure 6,7 inches.
The feature that immediately catches the eye is the presence of the latest SoC from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 888, as it suggests how the South Korean company may have decided to postpone the launch of this terminal in the spring. Usually, in fact, Qualcomm updates its latest flagship processor, recognizable by the addition of a "+" at the end of the name, at the beginning of the second half of the year. An example of this is another folding product launched by the company, the Z Flip 5G which boasts a Snapdragon 865+ and the launch took place in July last year.
It was then suggested that the alleged Galaxy Z Flip 3 may present a much larger external display than that present on the previous model, stopped at 1,1 inches, reaching 1,8 inches.

We must not forget, however, that always based on the information leaked in recent weeks, the next foldable Samsung could also present a decidedly cheaper version, equipped with 5G connectivity and which could be very similar to the one already on the market. Other news would then concern the presence of a central hole for the resized camera, a new mechanism for opening and closing the smartphone and better water resistance, perhaps with the addition of IP68 certification.
Several renders have also emerged on the net on the upcoming Z Flip 3, with important references related to the camera which could present a layout very similar to that seen on the Galaxy S21. According to what the user reported on Twitter, the device would implement the same triple 12MP camera seen on the Galaxy Z Fold 2. As reiterated several times we are talking exclusively about rumors, to be taken with due caution, waiting for official information that they could arrive in the next few weeks.
