Samsung is preparing to unveil its two new foldable smartphones during a summer keynote. Unfortunately for the Korean manufacturer, all the secrets concerning the new gadgets are stale.
On Wednesday August 11, 2021, Samsung will hold a global press conference to lift the veil on its novelties for 2021. Used to unveiling its Galaxy Note in the heart of summer, the Korean manufacturer will change its strategy here, but the content of its advertisements is no longer really a secret.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 2
The stars of this keynote will undoubtedly be the company’s two new foldable phones. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2 will occupy a good part of the conference, as Samsung wants to make these new phone models the successors of the Galaxy Note range.
The manufacturer does not even try to spare the surprise since a company official has officially admitted that the new Galaxy Z will be presented at the beginning of August. The slogan of the conference ” Get ready to unfold “(Or” get ready to unfold “in good French) does not leave any doubt about the focus of this keynote either.
Design, technical sheet and price already known
Are you curious about what these two new foldable phones will look like? No problem, the always very knowledgeable Evan Blass got the promotional images for the two mobiles.

As for the technical sheet, it should, unsurprisingly, be very high-end. According to the WinFuture site, the Z Fold 3 will have a 6.2-inch outer screen and a 7.6-inch inner screen. The mobile would have the same format as its predecessors and would embed a Snapdragon 888 chip, 12 GB of RAM and 5G compatibility.
The Z Flip on the other hand (which folds horizontally) would have a small 1.9-inch outer screen and a second 6.7-inch panel inside. The same Snapdragon chip should animate the mobile, which will also be 5G compatible.
Even the prices of the two mobiles are no longer secrets. The Z Fold 3 is expected to cost € 1,199 in its base configuration while the Z Flip is reportedly priced at € 1,149.
The Galaxy Buds 2 and a new watch
If the two mobiles will monopolize the attention, Samsung should also present new accessories. Galaxy Buds 2, the brand’s new wireless headphones, should make their appearance and be marketed at 159 €. Finally, a new version of the Galaxy Watch will also be announced. It will replace the Galaxy Watch 3 that you can find (for the moment) in our guide to the best connected watches.
Where to look?
If all these leaks did not completely spoil the surprise for you, you can follow the event live on the Samsung site. The event will begin at 4 p.m. French time.
