Fresh leaks have shed new light on what to expect from Samsungs upcoming foldable phones, including their colors, features and more.
Weve already heard rumors that the Galaxy Z Flip 2
likely to be the companys next clamshell foldable will be available in 128GB and 256GB storage options and come running Android 11, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3
expected to be Samsungs new tablet-sized foldable will come equipped with the same OS and a higher storage capacity.
But now weve got a better idea of the colors both devices will arrive in, too. A recent SamMobile
report suggests the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will be launched in a handful of new colors, including light violet, green, black and beige, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will arrive in a choice of black or green.
Theres likely to be additional color options available when the phones officially launch, but these are the first color-based rumors weve heard regarding Samsungs upcoming foldables.
Its worth noting that we dont know for sure what the Galaxy Z Flip 2 will be called. Weve heard conflicting reports that the device might in fact be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (since a 5G version of the Galaxy Z Flip
followed the original and is considered by some to be the Z Flip 2 in all but name), but we do expect it to be officially labeled as either the second or third model in the Z Flip range.
In terms of new features coming to the devices, weve also learnt that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely become the first of Samsungs foldable phones to offer some degree of water resistance.
According to fresh rumors
from leaker @chunvn8888, the Z Fold 3 wont have an IP rating the international standard for how well sealed a device’s electrical parts are from the elements like dirt, dust and moisture but it will be splash resistant.

Of course, that doesnt mean youll be able to submerge the phone in the bath like you could with, say, an iPhone 12
, but this nonetheless represents an improvement over its predecessor, which was particularly prone to spill-related damage given its exposed hinge.
Well know more about both the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 2 (or 3?) when the devices officially launch likely sometime in 2021 but in the meantime we’ll keep you updated with all the leaks and rumors as they emerge.
