Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 to launch in the 2nd week of August

It has the Snapdragon 888 SOC, not the 888 Plus

A couple of days ago, we got to see the design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 as the official renders were shared online, showing off all the color options. One thing that is still a mystery is the launch date. We know that the Unpacked event happens in August, but while some rumors suggest that the launch would take place in the first week of August, a new report by 91Mobiles suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is launching in the 2nd week of August. We also got to know when the Z Fold 3 would go on sale in India.

In the US & UK, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will go on sale in late August, but in the Indian market, the phone is arriving a month later, in September. Some specifications of the phone were also revealed in this new report. So, despite the fact that Snapdragon 888 Plus is already out, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has the Snapdragon 888. The reason for this is that Samsung is working on the Z Fold 3 for quite some time now, whereas the Snapdragon 888 Plus was announced just recently. So it is not easy to just suddenly change the plan and get the latest chipset for the device. Just as in the case of last year’s Z Fold 2, there are three 12 Megapixel cameras on the rear, i.e., a primary, an ultrawide, and a telephoto.

On the inside, there is a 16 Megapixel selfie camera placed under the display, whereas, on the outside, there is a 10 Megapixel camera placed in a hole punch cutout. Finally, the phone is coming with up to 512GB of storage.
