Samsung’s most important launches for 2021, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have been leading a growing number of leaks. Promising substantial improvements over the previous generation, the South Korean giant’s new collapsibles are expected to bring a revamped look, greater strength and new standout features such as support for the S-Pen.
Still without official details released, the new Galaxy Z are expected to arrive as early as next month, as indicated by numerous rumors. This week, Samsung may have finally confirmed the devices’ debut date, in a teaser already removed from the brand’s Russian website.
Teaser confirms date and colors of Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3
The teaser in question has been saved by the website LetsGoDigital and by the leaker Evan Blass, and contains the phrase “the future will unfold in a new way”, in free translation, making direct reference to the company’s foldings. Also according to the page, the next Galaxy Unpacked takes place on August 11th, exactly as scheduled, at 5 pm Moscow time, the equivalent of 11 am Brasília time.
Another interesting point is the image used by Samsung on the material — at first, the displayed shape looks just like a projection of a colored cube. A closer look, however, reveals that they are the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3, aligned to look like a cube.

Following this line of reasoning, the company may have confirmed at least two colors for each model: black and green for the Z Fold 3, and purple and beige for the Z Flip 3. All had also been cast in the past.
This was not the only “slip” given by Samsung in relation to its upcoming releases. The manufacturer uncompromisingly showcased the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Watch 4 in a video dedicated to highlighting the development team behind the Galaxy family, published last week.
What to expect from the next Galaxy Unpacked?
The main highlights of the Galaxy Unpacked in August will be the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, which will come to market equipped with the Snapdragon 888 chipset, up to 12GB of RAM, slimmer body and more powerful fast charging.
The Z Fold will debut more technologies, including support for the S-Pen and under-display camera, while the Z Flip is expected to undergo more visual modifications, reminiscent of the Google Pixel 2 design.
The manufacturer is also expected to unveil the long-awaited Galaxy S21 FE, still shrouded in doubt about its definitive list of configurations. Most likely, the brand’s next entry-level high-end will feature the Snapdragon 888, although a variant with Exynos 2100 will not be ruled out.
The model should feature a design that blends the look of the Galaxy S21 family with the build quality of the new Galaxy A, employing 120 Hz AMOLED screen, 12 MP triple camera, water and dust resistance, and 4,500 mAh battery.
Other highlights to be unveiled by the South Korean giant are the new Galaxy Watch 4 and Watch 4 Classic, the brand’s first smartwatches to feature the new version of Wear OS, developed from a partnership between Google and Samsung with the proprietary interface One UI Watch, and Galaxy Buds 2, the brand’s new entry-level TWS headset that will bring the look and features of its tougher brother Galaxy Buds Pro.
