South Korean tech giant Samsung might launch its flagship foldable smartphone — Galaxy Z Fold3 — with a 25W fast charger.

According to GSMArena, the 3C certification site revealed that the included adapter has the model number EP-TA800 and is the same one that comes included with the Galaxy Z Fold2.


The same site, earlier, revealed that the Z Fold3 would arrive with a combined battery capacity of 4,275 mAh (2,215 mAh + 2,060 mAh) which may be advertised as 4,400 mAh.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is rumoured to be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset, the report said. FOR MORE DETAILS : https://www.techshout.com/mobile-phones/2021/03/samsung-galaxy-z-fold-3-details-emerge/

Any one confirm fold 3's ip rating?
IPX8, allegedly.

The S21 displays are failing left and right. They screwed up bad on what should be a comfortable manufacturing process for them.
Enter the Fold, what has been a very complex, and uncomfortable engineering/manufacturing epic excursion for Samsung.
Did Samsung get it right this time?
Maybe... but the odds aren't good.

Titanic class IP rating🤣
🤣 Still, it's a move in the right direction.

It was one of the few things that put me off the fold 2. I can deal with the dust, but as I live in the UK, water resistance is important to me. It rains non stop where I live 🙄

It's has moving parts and too many parts.
Samsung chose to ignore the KISS concept completely.
Couldn't agree more. Remember my father, a now retired Chief Engineer teaching me the same lesson as a kid.

But everything has to start somewhere. And so it will be refined, re engineered till it meets consumer satisfaction. Then we maybe soon, we might be looking at holographic 😁 I can dream 🙄

For now, I'll settle for a third iteration of a what I see to be a reasonably fun phone. Think I'm going to grab one this time round.

I want a work horse not a show pony.
Everything since the Note 10+ has missed the mark. Samsung is playing that dangerous Field of Dreams game. So far... they aren't coming.
While it seems cool, in practical use it lacks key features like an SD card or an spen. Worse it's clumbersome to use according to some reviewers.
One curve display is enough to worry about🤣

I guess if you really just got to have it... had a gf like that.
Just play/handle one before you commit. What they look like in pictures and in person can be quit different. I never realized how ugly I found curve verses the 10+ square corner displays to be until I saw the two styles side by side. Took about 2 seconds for my mind to scream No Round Corners ever again! I can still recall the place and my thoughts like it's burned in my mind. Sort of like the first time I saw a Jaguar Type D in person, but not near as intense.

Note: the photo doesn't do it justice... not even close.

    I hope the buttons stay. I do not expect an SD card. Likely too much to expect a slot for the S pen.
    Yes wouldn't an spen be nice with all that real estate?
    An SD card slot to use as a data drive for critical data and easy reloads.
    All that screen with nowhere to go😕
