Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is about to launch & this time it may come with a small outer screen, much smaller than the one of its predecessor Galaxy Z Fold 2.
If this is coming true, then the device may have a 5.4″ outer display with a resolution of 816×2260. That’s exactly the same resolution as the Galaxy Z Fold2’s outer screen, just in a much smaller screen. Or – hopefully – it’s just a rumor and is supposed to stay 6.4″.
Fold2 has a 6.23″ outer screen, and that the Fold3 is expected to slightly grow its inner screen from 7.6″ to 7.7″.
Moving forward, let us see some details of other manufacturers what they are manufacturing this year, screens for this year’s foldable. Obviously, Samsung is sourcing from Samsung Display, for both the Fold3 and the Z Flip3 – this one will have a 6.8″ inner screen and a 1.9″ outer one apparently.
Huawei’s supplier for the Mate X2 is BOE, for both inner and outer panels, while Oppo’s upcoming device has a 7.1″ inner screen from Samsung Display and a 1.5-2″ outer one from BOE. vivo goes the same route with suppliers, only it’s foldable’s Samsung-sourced inner screen is 8″, and the BOE-made outer one is 6.5″. Finally, Xiaomi’s Mi Mix Fold has a mix of suppliers for its inside screen (split between Samsung Display and TCL China Star Optoelectronics), whereas its outside screen only comes from TCL CSOT.
Earlier today we heard from another leakster that Oppo has an additional foldable planned to come out until the end of the year, and that one will be bigger with an 8″ inside display.
