Just a few days ago, we reported that Samsung could be launching three new folding phones on August 11. Notable leakster Evan Blass has stated that August 11 seems to be the likely date for the Galaxy Unpacked event. From what we know, Samsung is looking to unveil three new foldable phones on 11 August. These three phones will all be foldable smartphones and are names accordingly-  Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 Lite. Just going by the name of the phone, we could expect the Lite variant to be priced differently than the other two. Nothing has been officially announced as yet, so do take this news with a grain of salt.

It also seems that Samsung is looking at launching the Galaxy Watch4, Galaxy Watch Active4, and Galaxy Buds2 at the event as well. The Galaxy S21 FE will not be making an appearance at the event. We also reported that According to The Korea Herald, Samsung will host the Galaxy Unpacked event in Korea on 11 August. The event will be live-streamed from Seoul and will feature the announcement of the three new foldable phones. As we already know, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is thinner and lighter in comparison to the Fold 2. When folded, it measures 14.5 millimetres in thickness and 15.6 millimetres including the rear camera bump and when unfolded, Fold 3 has a thickness of just 6.6 millimetres which translates to 7.7 millimetres including the camera bump. The overall dimensions are 158.1 x 64.8 x 14.5mm (15.6mm including rear camera bump) when folded and roughly 158.1 x 128.1 x 6.6mm (7.7mm including rear camera bump) when unfolded. 

The Flip3 however will come in a flip-phone style design and as we’ve said before, the Lite could be priced lower than the base Flip3. The report also speculated that the Flip3’s cover display could be expanded from 1.1 inches to 1.9 inches. As the year hits the midway point, we’re seeing Samsung take a more experimental approach to the launch of the Fold and Flip series of devices. We’ll only know more when the company finally announces the three phones in August.
