Samsung is working on changes to its foldable screen phones to increase the durability of devices. A feature highly valued by the user is the protection against water, still absent in the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but which can reach at least minimally in the Z Fold 3.
According to sources in the leaker Chun (@ chunvn8888), the third generation of the foldable cellphone that becomes a tablet from Samsung may have resistance to splashing water. “Don’t wait for IP certification,” warned the informant, in a post on his Twitter profile.
If on the one hand this means that you will still need to be careful with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 near large amounts of water, such as swimming pools, toilets and the like, at least you will no longer need to despair if a small amount of the liquid gets wet. The device. A drizzle or even a little water on the table would hardly cause any harm to him – although even nowadays it is difficult to get enough water to stop the cell phone from working.
The big advantage should be a little more careful sealing so that it is not so easy for water to reach the internal components of the device. Still, it is good to emphasize that it would not be advisable to dip the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in water directly.
The SamMobile website had access to the possible colors of the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which for now is more or less defined in black and green, but others can be chosen until the launch, which should be for the second half of this year.
In the same publication in which he spoke about the resistance to splashing water, Chun also spoke about some characteristics of another Samsung device, the Galaxy Watch 4 watch. According to him, the smartwatch should be launched in the traditional versions, with a rotating crown, and Active, without a rotating crown, and without major changes in design, in addition to the same colors as this year’s Galaxy Z.
Another detail is a reinforcement to other leaks: Samsung should really replace the Tizen operating system with Google’s Wear OS.
The Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch Active 4 may be launched in the first half of 2021, according to some rumors. Already the Galaxy Z Fold 3 should be for the second half, possibly along with the folding in the shape of a shell, which should be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
