Samsung recently launched the Galaxy Fold 2 as a second generation foldable smartphone for the world. And within weeks of its launch, we are now hearing rumors about a new Galaxy Z Fold device in the works, presumably called the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
In fact, there are even reports on the device and some of its features, with the latest claiming that the South Korean tech giant filed a patent titled “Galaxy Z Fold with Light Indicator” in March 2019. Published by the World Intellectual Property Organization on October 1 and discovered by LetsGoDigital, this new patent shows that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 could be equipped with a fancy light on the hinge.
The patent shows the Galaxy Z Fold with an indicator in the hinge with LED light elements and an almost translucent cover. This LED light could be used very well for notifications o The purpose of the indicator would be to alert you to notifications or incoming calls or messages. However, a word of caution before getting excited about this feature. As with all patents, this feature may not be available for the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
But whatever the features of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, what is certain is that the device will be a definitive update of the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Speaking of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, arguably the biggest improvement seen in the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is in the display department. On the outside we have a larger display, which occupies the front of the phone. This screen has very little in the way of bezels and looks like a modern solution for all displays. The panel here is 6.23 inches in size with HD + resolution. This panel has an aspect ratio of 25: 9. The panel also uses a hole instead of a notch on the Galaxy Z Fold.
The design of the rear camera module has also been slightly modified, as it looks very similar to that of the Galaxy Note 20. The phone also shares the Mystic Bronze color with the Note 20. In terms of cameras, the module houses three lenses, the main one being a 12 megapixel lens paired with another 12 megapixel Super Dual Pixel lens. the third lens in the configuration is a 12 megapixel telephoto lens. The front camera of the phone is a 10 megapixel lens for clicking pictures.
