Evan Blass has just opened pandora’s box of Samsung’s upcoming foldable leaks, revealing the alleged first official images of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold gets most of the limelight, as we can see what it looks like from both sides, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 at the moment we only see it semi-closed. One surprise, although it has been leaked before, is that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 would be compatible with the S Pen.
Evan Blass leaked the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 design
It is an open secret that Samsung would continue to bet on foldable phones and, now that it seems that it has ordered them in its catalog under the Z series and with two very different formats: the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold in book form and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, like the clamshell mobiles of yesteryear. The third generation of the same has been leaked by Evan Blass with quality images.

The leak leaves the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with few secrets, at least in terms of its design. We can see that it follows the Galaxy Z Fold 2 in terms of a large main display with the perforated front camera centered on one of its halves. The biggest change is in the rear camera module, which is more compact. The module matches an earlier leak.
There was speculation that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might include the camera under the display, but it’s actually quite visible in the image, so that doesn’t appear to be the case. What is still up in the air is the presence of a secondary display, as its two sides are not visible when the phone is closed.
Perhaps the biggest surprise is the “confirmation” that it would be compatible with the S Pen, although not just any S Pen. The image shows that the stylus clearly indicates that it is Fold Edition. In theory, with a thinner tip to avoid damaging the screen.
The second leaked model is the alleged Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, in which Samsung would directly skip the number 2 to equate the numbering of both foldings. Unfortunately here we only have an image where the phone is seen semi-closed, in the part where the secondary screen and its main cameras, with two lenses, can be seen.
Unfortunately, we have no more information or details except what can be gleaned from the images themselves – for example, it seems to have the fingerprint reader on the power button – so we will have to wait for the official presentation, whose date is unknown. Samsung has an event planned for the MWC next June 28 and, although it would be a good occasion to present or show the new devices, for the moment there is nothing confirmed.
We will have to wait to know the look from all angles and all the specifications of Samsung’s upcoming foldable mobiles. Hopefully, if there is a preview during MWC, the wait will not be too long: the event is next Monday. It would not be the first time the Samsung Galaxy Fold was announced during the MWC 2019.
