Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 2 May Be the First Waterproof Foldable Smartphones

Samsung will launch its third Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip smartphones this year. Recently it was reported that the Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 will not have a dedicated S Pen slot due to space constraints and water resistance issues. Now, a new report has said that both the Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Flip 2 will come with an IP rating. The recent report in SamMobile, a website that tracks Samsung developments, does not mention the exact IP rating, but it suggests that they will come with a different water and dust protection rating than the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, which has an IP68 rating.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Flip 2 are rumoured to be unveiled in July this year. As per a recent leak, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will have a 7.5-inch internal screen and a 6.2-inch outer display.
