Samsung hasn’t officially introduced its 2021 foldable phone lineup yet. But details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G have been leaking for months, and last week Evan Blass posted a set of images that gave us a closer look at the upcoming phones.
Now he’s back with a set of animated GIFs that show off the Z Flip3 5G from all angles and in four different colors. As expected, the phone has two rear cameras, a secondary display that allows you to see notifications and other content without flipping the phone open, and we can now see a USB-C port, speaker, and dual microphones on the bottom of the phone plus a third mic on top.
Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
