The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be unveiled to the world on August 12th at the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event, with great expectations about the South Korean manufacturer’s third generation folding screen flip phone.
As this is a top-of-the-range brand with a price above 1000 euros, the market has got us used to expect from these devices a good filling of premium features. However, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 may sin in an aspect where Samsung tends to be more conservative: charging.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have a charging speed at the level of cheap smartphones
The information comes to us through Ice Universe, famous leakster that, through Twitter, revealed that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have a fast charge of only 15W. This speed is low even by Samsung’s standards, which tends to limit charging to 25W of maximum power, for the sake of safety and battery preservation (only the Galaxy Note10+ arrived with higher power, of 40W).
Well, this is not, at all, a scenario that will please fans, especially considering the speeds currently practiced that reach, in some cases, 120W (Infinix has launched a prototype with a 160W charge, not yet sold).
On the other hand, the 15W of the Z Flip3 are at the level of cheap smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy A02s, with a price of less than €130. This will not, in fact, be a feature that will impress potential buyers of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, especially considering its price that is expected to be ten times higher than that of the small Galaxy A02s.
The iPhone 13 series will use 25W fast charging, Samsung is still launching 15W Z Flip3 😂— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) July 23, 2021
Fortunately, everything else is expected that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a smartphone that stands out for its build quality, which should be improved compared to its predecessor, with a new AMOLED screen and new improved hinges, as well as all the power of the Snapdragon 888 inside to ensure this is the most powerful flip phone of the year.
As this information does not come from an official source, we recommend the reader to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event on August 12th to confirm all the details about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.
