Leaked images of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 series show that Samsung Electronics Co.’s next premium foldable phones are fitted with an under-display camera and S-pen stylus as rumored.
SamMobile.com, an online information-sharing blog dedicated to Samsung Mobile devices, revealed that the South Korean tech giant’s new foldable smartphone models will come up with a bigger external display design plus under-display camera and S Pen features.
The latest teased images of the Z Flip 3 suggest that the new clamshell foldable smartphone will be offered in a wide range of case colors with a two-tone approach and a larger external display than its predecessor.
The larger screen can be inferred from the leaked image that shows a three-line text message on the external display, according to the images. This is in line with consumers’ suggestion that the new series comes with a bigger screen. The two-camera arrangement has also been changed from horizontally to vertically.
A new “Armor Skin” or “Armor Layer” is also newly applied to the hinge and bezel to further improve the durability and make the phone lighter.

The leaked images of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which turns like a book, feature an under-display camera (UDC) and S Pen. If it is confirmed to be true when the new Galaxy Z Fold is officially unveiled later this year, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be the world’s first foldable smartphone with an under-display camera, which no camera is seen on the internal display when the device is unfolded, the online blog said.
The images also revealed that Samsung Electronics’ signature stylus S Pen is included in the new foldable phone series as rumored. The stylus can be used to take notes simultaneously with a video call. When the device is put on a desk with the display folded at 90 degrees, the upper screen can be used for video calling and the lower one for notetaking.
The two new Z models may be unveiled in July after an unpack event.
