Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, Galaxy Watch 4 and Active Watch 4: What we know so far
According to previously available information, both the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. That said, we would not be surprised if Samsung instead adopts the premium Z Fold 3 with Snapdragon 888+ which is apparently correct. around the corner.
Fold 3 is expected to have pretty much the same design as the current model, and rumored excellent features include a selfie camera under panel and support for S Pen. The sub-panel camera will reportedly be on par with conventional shooters, but it will not be completely invisible. It is rumored that the outer screen will flaunt with a 120Hz refresh rate this time.
It is rumored that both devices will be cheaper than its predecessors. They can cost up to 20 percent less than the outgoing models, and if this rumor is made, the Z Fold 3 will sell for $ 1,599, and the clamshell Flip 3 will go for $ 959.
As we move on to the new watches, the headline update is another switch Wear OS, which is a unified operating system that will combine the best features of Google’s Wear OS and Samsung’s Tizen platform.
The Galaxy Watch 4 will reportedly be available in 42mm and 46mm sizes, and the Active Watch 4 will come in 40mm and 42mm variants.
On the hardware side of things, the rumor 5nm chipset sounds like the biggest upgrade. This is because the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Watch Active 2 are powered by the 10nm Exynos 9910 chip, and a smaller processor node theoretically guarantees better performance and improved efficiency.
A new operating system and a more powerful chipset sounds like only the combination Samsung needs to make these the best smartwatches of the year. Allegedly on the cards are also design changes that can give the new watches a more refined look.
Although previously rumored non-invasive glucose monitoring function may not make it Samsung’s new wearables, other health-related features such as ECG and heart rate monitor will probably be there.
If the names are confusing, it may help to remember that Active 4 is expected to be a diluted version of Watch 4 and is likely to be positioned as an Apple Watch SE competitor.
