Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 could arrive as early as May
The chaebol recently announced financial results for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2020 and per the report, the Mobile Communications Business witnessed a Quarter on Quarter decline in profit due to lower sales and higher market expenditure. This year, the company is pinning its hopes on the Galaxy S21, foldables, and mass-market 5G smartphones.
The tech colossus has a 'two-track foldable' strategy, which is unsurprisingly based on the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip. The Z Fold is being touted as an entertainment and productivity-oriented device and for the Flip, the target market is millennials, particularly female consumers who want a competitively priced, stylish smartphone. Interestingly, the OG Galaxy Z Flip was twice as popular among males as females at launch.
This year's Galaxy Z Fold 2 also seems to be doing well despite its high price and its successor is also expected to support the S Pen. Per Bloter, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be unveiled in May this year. It remains to be seen if it will have a new AMD-based SoC under the hood.
Additionally, Samsung also seems to be working on rollable and slidable phones.
