Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, more power and less heat than S21 Ultra

We are now less than a month away from the official presentation of the new foldable smartphones from Samsung, which has now been confirmed by the company itself that will be announced on August 11th during an Unpacked event.

New information leaked on the net suggest how the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 can be more performing than Galaxy S21 Ultra, at the same time maintaining lower temperatures under stress, without giving up a good autonomy.

The indiscretion comes from the well-known leaker Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), known for having shared information about future Samsung terminals (and not only) on Twitter in the past, which later proved to be accurate.

According to what is written in the tweet in question, it seems that Samsung has managed to optimize the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in a better way than it has already done with its latest top of the range, or the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Ice Universe refers to the Snapdrago variant n 888 of the folding smartphone, hardware variant that probably will not arrive in our country to make room for the one with an Exynos 2100 chip inside.

Fold3 (Snapdragon 888 version) has less heat in daily games, much stronger than S21U, and has a good battery life.

Although Samsung was not able to use in the realization of the device the most powerful Qualcomm chip, remember that the company recently announced the Snapdragon 888 Plus, it seems that it has managed to squeeze all the possible power from the top-of-the-range chip of the first half of 2021.

Also reassuring is the fact that despite this increase in power the temperatures, probably thanks to a greater heat dissipation capacity due to the size of the Z Fold 3, and the autonomy remain under control.

It therefore seems that the most demanding users from the point of view of productivity and raw power can sleep peacefully. Recall that Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected with the first camera under the display ever brought to the market by the brand in the mobile field, a new protective coating of the flexible OLED panel called UTG 2.0, IP68 certification and compatibility with the S-Pen.

Samsung announces Unpacked event for August 11th with Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip teaser

Samsung has officially announced when it will hold its next Unpacked product event: August 11th at 10AM ET / 7AM PT. It is widely expected to announce the next version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 — both of which have already leaked quite a bit. Samsung’s not being shy about those expectations, as a quick look at its invite reveals the outline for both of those devices.

Samsung is also expected to announce new Galaxy watches, which would be the first to use the new combined Wear platform that was announced at Google I/O earlier this year.

Samsung is holding the event virtually again on its website, and it promises to post more details on the livestream here. It’s also keeping up another Samsung trend: letting customers “reserve” “its next flagship” before it’s even been officially announced. Samsung says it will offer “increased trade-in credit and 12 months of Samsung Care+ at a discounted rate” for early reservations.

According to the images leaked by Evan Blass, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 looks very similar to the current iteration of the folding phone. The largest upgrade will apparently be compatibility with Samsung’s S Pen stylus. Samsung itself has been telegraphing that it would add stylus support to the Fold line for a very long time now.

As for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the biggest update may be on the outside, where Samsung will replace a very tiny screen with a slightly larger but still fairly small screen.

Samsung has done a better job with durability on its folding devices since it switched over to using “Ultra thin glass” under a plastic sheet for these displays. However, the screens are still much more fragile than regular smartphone screens. If Samsung is intending to encourage users to poke at the Z Fold 3’s screen with a plastic stick, that folding screen will need to become more durable.

Though it’s not likely to get top billing, the new Galaxy smartwatches are likely to be a bigger shift than the iterative updates to the folding phones. That’s because it’ll be the first Samsung smartwatch to run Google’s Wear operating system in over half a decade. Samsung had been using its own Tizen-based OS on smartwatches, which had benefits over Google’s Wear OS but did not have an app library worth using. Now that the two operating systems are combined, this upcoming Samsung watch will be how first real look at what the new Wear operating system really works.

We are expecting both a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 with a rotating bezel and a Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 4 without to be announced, both in multiple colors.

It’s always possible there will be more on tap — Samsung’s Galaxy Buds lineup could also be due for a new model. We’ll find out for sure when Samsung kicks off its livestream on August 11th.
