With the company aiming for a launch in August, Samsung has reportedly started mass production of its next generation, high-end foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Roland Quandt reports on WinFuture that Samsung today, June 1, started mass production of the components needed to make the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in “large numbers.” This apparently indicates a launch within the next 60-90 days, in line with previous reports.
Starting mass production so close to launch would be quite late in the game for some other devices. However, given the high price of the Fold 3 and the complexity of the collapsible, Samsung apparently produces only about a third of the amount that would be produced for the launch of devices sold in larger quantities, such as the Galaxy S21
In particular, this report claims that while production starts for the Galaxy Z Fold 3, it has not yet started for the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which is rumored to be announced at about the same time.
