Samsung is expected to launch Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip in the next few months. Several past reports have revealed that the company might hold a launch event for these foldable phones in July or August 2021. Now, a reliable Samsung tipster Jon Prosser via FrontPageTech has revealed that Samsung will start shipping Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 from August 27. His source didn’t reveal the launch date, but it usually happens few days before the sale/shipping starts.
A recent report from Winfuture claimed that Samsung has started mass producing Galaxy Z Fold 3 components. But, the mass production of Galaxy Z Flip 3 is yet to start. Rumors are that the new foldable from Samsung will be priced 20% cheaper than their predecessor.
