The Galaxy Z Fold 3 remains one of Samsung’s highly anticipated devices of the year. The new foldable smartphone is expected to bring a variety of improvements. It may also be the first foldable from Samsung to have support for the S Pen.
The company hasn’t revealed as yet when it will unveil the new foldable. However, it’s quite likely that we’ll get it in the second half of this year. Samsung is diligently working on getting the device ready. We hear that it has now started development of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 firmware.
Galaxy Z Fold 3 firmware development has begun
Since Samsung won’t be launching a new Galaxy Note handset this year, all eyes are on the Galaxy Z Fold 3. It will also be accompanied by a new clamshell foldable which will likely be called the Galaxy Z Flip 2.
We have previously revealed that the new Galaxy Z Fold handset bears model number SM-F926. It will come with at least 256GB of storage. Android 11 will obviously be present alongside One UI 3.5.
This will be a new iteration of Samsung’s custom Android skin. There will likely be some new features that get introduced with One UI 3.5. We hear that the firmware for the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is now in development. This gives Samsung plenty of time to make any changes if need be before the handset is due to be unveiled.
If history is any indication, it’s possible that Samsung will target the August/September timeframe for the handset’s launch. We can expect more details about the new foldable to emerge till then.
