The tweet suggests the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be announced on the 3rd of August, along with the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4.
The device is expected to ship some weeks later, likely on the 27th of August.
Samsung’s flagship handsets have of course already leaked extensively.
The Samsung Z Fold 3 will feature a display with 120 Hz screen refresh rate with a resolution of 2,260 x 816. Ross Young, lead analyst of DisplaySearch, reported that the Z Fold 3 will be thicker than the Z Fold 2 even with no polarizer. This is due to the included digitizer for S Pen support. He also mentioned that the display will be quite a bit brighter with lower power since there is no polarizer. It will reportedly also have an under-display camera. The device is expected to be slightly cheaper than the Fold 2 at launch. You can find out more in our rumour roundup here.
