Coming to the Galaxy Z Fold Lite, the device will feature an inner foldable display that will measure around 7-inches, while the cover display is about 4-inches when measured diagonally.

As per a UBI Research report (via GSMArena), Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 2, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and a new Galaxy Z Fold Lite next year. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will arrive with a similar design and a smaller display. The display research firm stated that the budget foldable smartphone will have a 7-inch internal foldable screen and a 4-inch external display.

Finally, the second-gen Galaxy Z Flip is now projected to remain on 6.7 inches for its own flexible display, although a larger 3-inch panel for its exterior surface may be in the offing. The cover glass on Samsung's current foldables has a thickness of 30μm. The Galaxy Z Fold Lite will reportedly make its debut in the first quarter of 2021, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will arrive in the third quarter.

One thing immediately comes into focus - the size difference of the external displays.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra will also come with support for Samsung's S Pen stylus, as the South Koreans are starting the migration from the Note series of the Galaxy S lineup.

Some of the specific new features added in One UI 3 include more Dynamic Lock Screen image categories, improved autofocus and auto exposure in the Camera app, a cleaned up Settings app with a simpler look and new search features, easier photo editing and sharing in the Gallery app, and the ability to use Digital Wellbeing to separate personal and work profiles. Presently, the Samsung Galaxy S20 series already has the OneUI3.0 system.

A wow factor or two when you unfurl your foldable into even bigger screens than what we have now, or fold them into something even more compact, would go a long way into convincing people a new trend is born.
