Since the release of the first foldable smartphone in the industry, there have been substantial improvements in the field of devices foldable. In all honesty, at the moment, these devices are far from perfect.
This means that many improvements can still be made to make them attractive to the general public. Let’s admit they are unique though, and this year we will continue to see new models from Samsung and new OEMs.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip2 will have IP certification
Meanwhile, it has emerged that, according to a recent report, Samsung’s next two foldable products will have one IP classification. Obviously, we are talking about the Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Galaxy Z Flip2.
Reports show that the terminals will come with the certification for resistance to dust and water. However, the specific classification level is currently unknown. In fact, for the uninitiated, the IP rating levels are actually different. For example, most of the products on the market have IP67 protection – this rating indicates that the device is protected from dust and other foreign objects.
In addition, it can work in water up to 1m deep for 30 minutes. The IP68 certification suggests that a phone is water-resistant and the submersion depth increases to 1.5 meters.
In addition, Samsung had previously applied for a patent for the brand “Armor Frame“. This wording indicates that the company should carry a different center frame on the new foldable arrival. Furthermore, the report states that the two phones are expected to be released in July.
Either way, the South Korean giant won’t be releasing another foldable smartphone this year. Previously it was thought that Samsung would launch four foldable in the course of 2021; in fact, the market is not ready for so many leaflets in a single year. Considering the effect of the pandemic, consumers may not be willing to spend that much.
Interestingly, the company has taken an interest in the durability and aesthetic strength of its expensive foldable smartphones. From one generation to the next, the problems related to the solidity of the devices have been more than evident. Let’s hope for the best with the new devices.
