Samsung is planning bring on some big shifts to its lineup in 2021. Talk about the S Pen-coming to Galaxy S21 this January. Meanwhile the Galaxy Z Fold3 is expected to be the company’s proper flagship in H2. Now, talking about the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip (5G), a Dutch website, GalaxyClub has dug up a model Samsung SM-F720F. The source calls it ‘Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3. If everything goes right, this handset is the previously rumored cheap version of the folding Galaxy Z Flip Lite.
It’s worth mentioning that, according to Samsung’s convention with an ‘F’ at the end of the model, this will be an international model that does not support 5G networks. As a reminder, Samsung’s 5G equipment uses ‘B’ at the end of the model.
Considering that the last chipset that does not support 5G is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+, there is every reason to think this handset will be powered by it. Also, this SoC appeared on the original Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. In this regard, the Galaxy Z Flip3 may also be just an optimized version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
If the situation is in line with expectations, the machine will be released as one of Samsung’s folding models this year, and the price is expected to not exceed $1,000.
Earlier, Korean media has reported that Samsung will launch 4 foldable phones in the second half of next year, including two Galaxy Z Fold 3 and two Galaxy Z Flip 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 will reportedly feature a 6.9-inch screen with narrower bezels and a smaller camera opening. It will also support a 120Hz refresh rate. As a reminder, the first Galaxy Z Flip has a 60Hz 6.7-inch screen.
The external screen is expected to increase. So its diagonal will increase from 2.2 to 3.3 inches. Its external screen will be smaller than that of the Motorola Razr (2.7 inches).
The phone will feature a new ultra-thin glass (UTG). This will enhance the durability of the smartphone. The battery capacity will be 3900mAh, while the original model has a 3300mAh capacity battery.
