It’s no longer a big secret that Samsung plans to get serious about its previously experimental foldable devices this year. go so far as to cancel or at least delay the company’s next “conventional” flagship Galaxy Note series until 2022 to focus on the 2021 Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
Eight is the magic number
While we haven’t seen a believable Galaxy Z Flip 3 rendering, let alone a real-life photo or video, two hugely reliable sources already paint a pretty complete picture of the color options of the upcoming handset.
The gray, white, dark blue, and pink liveries would bring the Galaxy Z Flip 3 versions to a total of eight, compared to just four original Z Flip models and three Z Flip 5G color options from the Mystic brand.

Obviously, while we delve into this topic, it’s far too early to know (or guess) the marketing names of all of these different Z Flip 3 models. In fact, we still can’t even vouch for the accuracy of the phone’s moniker, which could be a little more confusing Galaxy Z Flip 2.

By the way, another notable chromatic difference between 4G LTE-limited and 5G-capable versions of could be determined Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. Last but not least, the gray taste may or may not be a super expensive Thom Browne special edition.
For now, we should probably focus on the greater importance of such an expanded color palette, rather than worrying about which countries are likely to get which variants and which hues might turn out to be prettier.
