Samsung has announced the folding Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G with more durable designs and 120Hz displays.
The ultra-premium foldables from Samsung continue to see slight changes in design to keep up with the flagship Galaxy lineup. The edges on both devices take on a more flat design with a bold hinge.
"With Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3, Samsung is once again redefining the possibilities with foldable smartphones that empower users with the flexibility and versatility needed for today's fast-paced world," said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. "As a pioneer and industry leader in the foldable category, we're proud to build on our legacy of innovation with the Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. These devices equip consumers with technologies that unlock new ways to maximize and enjoy every moment with an ecosystem built on openness and innovation."
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G has a more slim camera bump, but it appears nearly identical to its predecessor beyond the flat edges. It uses the 64-bit Octa-Core Processor with a 2.84GHz maximum clock speed.
The inner display is a 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display with S Pen support. It is 374ppi with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, and is 29% brighter. The Cover Screen is a 6.2-inch display with 387ppi and also has the 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.
Thanks to the new, more durable design, it has an IPX8 water resistance rating. Samsung also included Gorilla Glass Victus for improved protection against scratches and drops.
There are three colors available: Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Silver.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G includes a bigger external display and slight redesign similar to the Galaxy Fold3 5G. The flat edges and vertical camera bump make for an improved modern design.
The inner display is a 6.7-inch Infinity Flex Display. It is 425ppi and has a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G uses the 5nm 64-bit Octa-Core Processor. Like the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, it has a maximum clock speed of 2.84GHz.
Four colors available through carriers are Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black. Samsung offers Gray, Pink, and White exclusively colors on its website.
