Tech News: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 leak just reveals big design surprise.
There has been a huge leap in user experience between the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 thanks to the redesign of the foldable external screen. Instead of a 4.6-inch screen on the front cover of the device, which had wide bezels that made the smaller display difficult to use, the sequel has a 6.2-inch external display and is as easy to navigate as any smartphone screen. . And now we could see another improvement made to the next generation model coming out later this year.
Samsung has just obtained a patent from the World Intellectual Property Organization (via LetsGo Digital) entitled “Galaxy Z Fold Squeeze Gesture”. Because some users may find it difficult to use the buttons on the side of the phone when folded, the patent provides for the use of gestures to replace a button press. The user will be able to choose which gestures will work with certain controls.
Of course, the patent does not say which phone it is intended for, assuming it is ever used in a commercial device. The 110-page patent title is “Foldable Electronic Device,” which covers a huge amount of Samsung’s upcoming production: not just the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3, but also a rumored foldable tablet and something that pops like a parchment. The images certainly look like something from the Z Fold line, however, so if we don’t see it in Generation III, it could be something that appears in Generation IV in 2022.
We expect to see the Galaxy Z Fold 3 this summer and photos from An official-looking video seems to highlight the features Samsung will want to push, including support for the S Pen and the company’s first sub-screen selfie camera. One thing is unlikely to be cheap, however, with previous generations of the Galaxy Z Fold emerging at $ 1,980 and $ 1,999 respectively.
