Samsung to launch Galaxy Z Fold 3 in June 2021; discontinue Note series
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be launched in June 2021, according to the Korean publication’s report. The company is said to be in the final stages of development before it starts the mass production of its upcoming foldable smartphone. The two biggest updates available on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 are the inclusion of S Pen support and an in-display front camera.
According to Aju News, Galaxy Z Fold 3 will come with support for S Pen. It also mentions that the company will discontinue the Galaxy Note series in 2021. There have been reports in the past that suggested the same. A recent tip from Max Weinbach listed the upcoming Samsung flagships for 2021. The list did not include the Galaxy Note series.
Regarding the in-display front camera, Samsung is reportedly using a screen technology that lets light pass through the gap between pixels to click selfies. The company has also managed to add an in-display digitiser, courtesy of the second-generation ultra-thin glass. With the next-generation glass, Samsung has reportedly overcome the difficulties of developing the screen protective layer that helps in preventing scratches from when the S Pen comes in contact with the display. The use of the second-generation ultra-thin glass has also made it possible for Samsung to fit the S Pen in the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The upcoming Galaxy S21 Ultra is also rumoured to come with support for S Pen. However, Samsung will make its smart stylus available as an accessory instead of bundling it with the device. The Galaxy S21 Ultra tipped to launch in January 2021 will not have a dedicated slot for the S Pen, as per rumours.
