If there was something left to see of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 forward of their very seemingly launches at Samsung Unpacked on August 11, effectively, we most likely simply noticed it in a video leaked by the phonemaker itself. And it exhibits the customized S Pen that’s been long-rumored to come back to the Z Fold 3.
Samsung Malaysia’s YouTube account reportedly uploaded a brief video exhibiting off each foldables and swiftly took it down, however not earlier than it was screencapped and posted to the r/GalaxyFold subreddit. The brief video has all of the hallmarks of Samsung promotional movies, so we’d suspect it’s genuine, although it’s at all times attainable a artful creator went by way of the difficulty of aping Samsung’s type with very authentic-looking renders.
The clip was shortly uploaded elsewhere, together with on Twitter:

The video purportedly exhibits each foldables in motion for just a few seconds every, however revealed loads in that point. It demonstrated a roulette of apps on the clamshell Z Flip 3’s exterior display screen (which is far bigger than the outer show on its predecessors), however many of the 30-plus-second runtime was dedicated to the Z Fold 3 and stylus performance. Notably, the foldable can seemingly break up apps between halves of the inside show, which is neat.
There’s much more element within the video than you would possibly suppose – consumer u/paxinfernum, who uploaded the video, famous that the tremendous print within the shot with the stylus reads:
“S Pen Professional and S Pen Fold Version offered individually. Solely use the Samsung S Pen Professional or S Pen Fold Version designed completely for Galaxy Z Fold3. All different S Pens or stylus pens not designed for Galaxy Z Fold3 (together with these by different producers) might injury the display screen. Sure functions might not help multitasking. Flex mode supported at angles between 75° and 115°.”
What’s ‘Flex Mode’?
Flex Mode is Samsung’s title for alternate performance when a cellphone is folded, which debuted with the unique Galaxy Z Flip and was included within the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Nevertheless it’s the S Pen information that’s extra intriguing, because the disclaimer suggests solely the long-expected S Pen Professional and the S Pen Fold Version will apparently work with the Z Fold 3 show. It’s unclear why, however maybe they’re much less harsh on the foldable’s display screen than prior styluses meant to work on glass shows. In any case, leaker Max Weinbach claimed that the Z Fold 3 itself will detect a non-compatible S Pen getting used and warn customers from doing so:

It’s good to see some sort of affirmation that the Z Fold 3 will get its personal S Pen, which is without doubt one of the high new options we’ve heard in regards to the foldable – and a motive to get this model over the Z Fold 2. Furthermore, it may recommend that Samsung has customized performance in thoughts for the brand new model somewhat than simply including compatibility to shoehorn the Z Fold 3 into its lineup as a Notice 21 different.
And sure, each foldables look very like they do within the myriad design leaks and rumors exhibiting what we anticipate the units to appear like.
