Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 water resistance rating has a catch

The very first Samsung foldable phone in 2019 looked like a marvel but easily caved in under pressure. Given its unique design, particularly its hinges, it wasn't exactly surprising to learn that the Galaxy Fold couldn't live up to its peers in terms of dust and water resistance. Since then, Samsung has worked hard to improve the durability of its foldable phones, inside and out. This year's generation will even be waterproof, according to the latest leak, but it still has one Achilles' heel common to all foldable phones.

Samsung foldable displays will have 120Hz refresh rates

Although Samsung seems to have the lion's share of the niche foldable phone market, it might not be the only noteworthy game in town soon. A couple of new foldable devices are rumored to be launching within the next 12 or so months, but, ironically and unsurprisingly, Samsung will also benefit from those indirectly. Its display panel business will be the one providing foldable screens for these phones, and those screens might even boast fast refresh rates usually seen on conventional phones.

Galaxy Z Flip 3 needs to be cheaper, or this will never work

Prices for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 need to be less expensive than reported, or foldables will never see the lofty heights of popularity that Samsung intends they reach. Samsung Display could continue to manufacture foldable display panels and hardware companies could continue to create foldable display-toting smartphones and tablets and new sorts of devices all they want, but the key - the connection Samsung Mobile has to the hardware - needs to make bank to keep this vehicle rolling. To make that happen, they need to make a more affordable smartphone.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 under-display camera rumor just won’t die

A lot has already been leaked about the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but there are still one or two pieces that remain uncertain. One of those, the Unpacked 2021 date, may have been finally settled by the alleged remarks of a Samsung executive.

A new leak seems to lean more towards the latter, and many are not amused.

Foldable phones aren’t a fad – they’re the start of something new

Foldable phones aren’t a fad – they’re the start of something new

With Samsung's next Unpacked just a few weeks away, it's unsurprising to hear a lot of news about the upcoming next-gen foldable phones. It's easy enough to brush these off as fads since the first foldables were like fragile pieces of china, and almost all of them cost an arm even today. Most probably still can't think of a use for them, much less a justification for investing in one.

Foldable phones might never gain mass adoption the way regular smartphones have, though, but that's OK. They aren't really the be-all and end-all of smartphones but just the opening salvo to the next wave of computing.
