Samsung is set to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 3 at its Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11. And it’s getting in its licks now on the upcoming iPhone 13.
In a teaser video released on Samsung’s YouTube page, a silhouette of what looks to be an iPhone 13 can be seen, as the narrator asks “is ‘good’ good enough?” Granted, Samsung also included other phone silhouettes in the video, including what looks to be the large and bulky Motorola DynaTAC 8000X from 1973 to a Palm PDA-looking device from the mid-2000s.

The reason why we believe Samsung is taking a subtle jab at the iPhone 13 is because of the camera array on the silhouette shown. We know it’s not a Galaxy S21, which features lenses in top corner of the device running straight down. Instead, this silhouette shows a square camera array with sensors mounted diagonally — rumors suggest that this will be the iPhone 13’s new design. The iPhone 12, by comparison, has two camera sensors running horizontally.

Current iPhone 13 dummy units, often sent early to third-party accessory manufacturers to help them design cases, supposedly show the new model phone with a diagonal camera setup. Similar dummy units were sent to Canadian tech YouTuber Dave Lee, aka Dave2D.

At the moment, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is expected to debut at Samsung’s August 11 event and hit stores some time after that, with the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Watch 4 also appearing at that event. A report from SamMobile indicates that the phone will cost $1,599, $200 cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s current price. Other reports suggest that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 will cost anywhere between 1.9 million to 1.99 million won, which translates to between $1,660 and $1,750. Advertisement
