Samsung’s next foldable Galaxy device appears to be getting closer to its release date. The latest news comes from China, where the alleged Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 received its 3C certification. The certification specifies that the next ZFold device will have a dual battery system, totaling 4,275mAh of battery capacity.
This battery system consists of two individual battery cells (2,215 mAh + 2,060 mAh). The two-cell system distributes the weight of the batteries over the two halves of the foldable phone. Looking at these numbers, the Z Fold3’s battery capacity is less than the Z Fold2’s total 4,500mAh capacity. The reason for this smaller capacity is believed to be due to the newer device’s more compact form factor.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 would arrive with an IP rating of water and dust resistance and with a model number SM-F916. Recent reports point to a launch date for two foldables in July. This can include both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Galaxy Z Flip2 (or Z Flip3). This contrasts with previous reports that Samsung may launch four foldable products in 2021 and that they will launch later in the year.
Other rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold3 assumed support for the S Pen input (albeit without a place to store it), and that it might have a smaller external display than the Galaxy Z Fold2. It’s also been reported that the Z Fold3 will arrive with 256GB of storage while the Z Flip2 will arrive in 128GB and 256GB configurations.
