The wait for Samsung‘s Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 foldables is almost over. The devices will go official on August 11. But we already know pretty much everything about both phones, thanks to an enormous amount of leaks over the past couple of months. So much so that there’s no point keeping the new foldables or their accessories secret anymore. A new leak now gives us a look at the official case designs for the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
The leaked case renders show that Samsung will offer a wide range of choices when it comes to protective cases for its upcoming clamshell folding phone. As you can see in the images below, one of the cases has a ring attached to it. Another has a kind of hook with a strap that features the “Flip” branding. This ring or hook could be used to attach the device to a lanyard, so you could wear it around the neck.
The strap also covers a portion of the hinge area, offering an additional layer of protection. Otherwise, the cases expectedly come in two separate pieces that leave the hinge area uncovered when the device is folded. The handset is mostly covered from the back when unfolded though, except for a tiny gap between the two halves of the case.
The cases feature large cutouts on the upper half, confirming the presence of a bigger secondary display and a dual-camera array. There’s also a tiny hole for an LED flash. We can further see the position of the volume rockers and the power button. They both sit on the right side, with the latter doubling up as a fingerprint scanner. There’s a centrally-located cutout for the USB Type-C port at the bottom. Nothing to surprise here.
Talking about color options, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 protective case with the ring attachment will reportedly be available in clear and purple colors. Other cases may come in Blue, Black, Silver, Purple, Yellow, and Gold color options. Material choices may include both silicone and leather.
Multiple Galaxy Z Flip 3 leaks have bared it all
We have seen so many Galaxy Z Flip 3 leaks over the past few months that there’s hardly anything left to the imagination. The device will bring improvements all around, both in terms of performance and durability. For the first time in foldables, Samsung is offering an official IP rating (IPX8 for both Fold 3 and Flip 3).
These cases will provide some added protection, though you’ll still need to handle the device with utmost care. Of course, there will be tons of choices from third-party case manufacturers as well. These leaked cases are part of official accessories from Samsung. Expect to see more of them once the phone goes official on August 11th. But considering how frequently Galaxy Z Flip 3 leaks have come in the past, it shouldn’t be surprising if we have few more leaks before the official unveiling a couple of weeks from now.
