Galaxy Z Fold 3 Won't Launch In May, Contrary To A Recent Report

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 AM AH 20

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t launch in May after all, as two reliable sources highlighted. Let’s start from the top, though, shall we. A South Korean outlet, Bloter, recently said that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will become official in May, but that’s highly unlikely.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t launch in May, nor will the Galaxy Z Flip 3

Both Max Weinbach and Ross Young reacted to that statement, claiming that it won’t happen. Max Weinbach is a well-known tipster, and he said that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is not coming in May, nor does the Z Flip 3. He was quite adamant in his tweet.

In a reply to that Tweet, Ross Young agreed. Mr. Young is a well-known display analyst, and he’s almost never wrong when it comes to smartphone launch timeframes. He said that panel shipments may start in May for the Z Flip 3, which means it’ll probably launch in June or July.


As far as the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is concerned, he did not have that much information, but he did say that it may happen at the same time, or later on. He could not confirm anything at the moment.

So, if the Galaxy Z Flip 3 does arrive in the first half of 2021, it will be in June. Whatever the case may be, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will either launch first, or at the same time as the Galaxy Z Fold 3.

The two phones will likely arrive at different times

It’s more likely that they’ll arrive at different times, though. These two phones are amongst the most anticipated smartphones of this year, as they’re both foldable, and their predecessors were more than solid offerings.


More eyes will probably be on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, as the Galaxy Z Fold lineup is rumored to replace the Galaxy Note series. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will likely be the first phone in the series to ship with the S Pen stylus. The Galaxy Note 21 likely won’t launch at all.
