When it comes to Samsung’s flagship smartphones, one thing that all of them have in common is a water-resistant certification. However, because the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Flip series of smartphones had a folding screen and a hinge mechanism, this functionality was absent. Samsung appears to have resolved these concerns. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 might be the first folding smartphone with IP certification for water and dust protection, according to the newest leak.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 to feature IPx8 Certification
According to leaked promotional literature, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is water and dust resistant to IPx8 standards. This certification isn’t widespread on cellphones, and it’s mostly seen on earbuds. A gadget that has received IPx8 certification can be immersed in water for up to one meter.
The firm will, however, provide the actual depth. According to reports, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a few additional enhancements, making it a genuine successor to the Galaxy Z Flip. Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protects the Galaxy z Flip 3, which also has a 1.9-inch secondary display on the exterior.
However, the inner folding display is likely to be made of flexible glass, which may not be as scratch and damage-resistant as regular smartphones. The display also receives a substantial upgrade, with a 120Hz refresh rate now available. Along with features like flex mode, rapid shot 2.0, and night mode, the smartphone sports a dual speaker system. The phone has an 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB internal storage and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.
