Samsung To Introduce Galaxy Z Flip 3 Protective Cover That Fits The Hinge Perfectly

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3

Samsung is likely to hold the Galaxy Unpacked event within the next 3 months, and the two folding screen models Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are expected to be unveiled together during this event. Yesterday, @FrontTron has shared four color-matched Galaxy Z Flip 3 spy photos on Twitter, and the Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital also shared more high-definition renderings. But today, we heard that Samsung is developing a new protective case for the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

There have been rumors that Samsung intends to make a new generation of folding screen devices more durable. Leaked images show that the new device uses Corning Gorilla Victus protective glass on both the front and back. As the successor to the sixth generation of Gorilla Glass, Victus is expected to further improve the scratch resistance and can withstand an accidental drop of 2 meters.

In addition to the outer glass, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are expected to use Armor Frame, which has been confirmed by a series of trademark applications submitted by Samsung. Although the hinge mechanism makes it difficult for the folding screen device to support IP68 waterproof/dustproof features in one step, the situation will at least be significantly improved compared to the current situation (such as IP57). Interestingly, Samsung seems to have designed three special-shaped leather protective cases for the new Galaxy Z Flip 3 folding screen. Two of the protective sleeves have a harder hinge fold, but the third is obviously based on soft fabric material.

It is reported that Samsung submitted a utility patent called “protective cover for foldable electronic equipment” to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in October 2020, and officially announced it to the outside world on April 29, 2021.

When folded and stored, the leather protective sleeve can provide fully-fitting protection at the hinge position of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. In addition, Samsung has considered reserving small windows for the rear camera and secondary screen of the phone (and Galaxy Z Fold 3), but such cutouts are not directly depicted in the patent illustrations.

Considering that Samsung has provided more than 10 styles of official protective covers for the Galaxy S21 series, it is presumed that Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 will also enjoy the same treatment. As for the color matching of the fuselage, the leaked image shows that there are at least four types of gray, rice, purple, and green. In addition, there are rumors that there are black, white, blue, pink, and other options. In terms of configuration, it is said that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 uses a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED main screen that supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz + a 1.83-inch secondary screen. The 10MP front shot punch may be retained, supplemented by the 12MP wide-angle + 12MP ultra-wide rear camera combination.

The battery capacity is 3300 mAh and supports 25W wired/ 15W wireless fast charging. As for the legendary new 65W charging adapter, it is expected that it may not be adopted until the Galaxy S22 in early 2022.
