Find out more about Samsung's new line of foldable smartphones.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Specs, Design and Price
One of the most exciting new design features of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G is its under-display front-facing camera.
It is the first-ever foldable smartphone to have such a camera, making the punch hole lens practically invisible when the screen is being used, offering a smooth, clean, and uninterrupted 7.6-inch screen experience when using the main screen.
With its Dynamic AMOLED 2X Display, 120 Hz refresh rate and stereo speakers, users get a crisp image display and multidimensional sound.
With its large main screen, Samsung is offering its users more freedom to create now that the Z Fold 3 finally supports the S Pen. Coming out with the S Pen Fold edition, it also has a rubber nib for smoother gliding on the screen. The screen itself boasts a 40 percent boost in display responsiveness for an incredibly smooth writing experience.
A drawback, Tech Spot pointed out, is the lack of a built-in holster for the S Pen which can make it prone to being misplaced.
With the One UI 3, using the Z Fold 3 is so intuitive, and multitasking features make working on the foldable smartphone so seamless and easy.
Users get a choice between 256 GB and 512 GB storage space, both running on 12GB RAM.
It also has a more durable design as it is fitted with Gorilla Glass Victus and an Armor Aluminum interior. The Z Fold 3 is also iPX8 waterproof, making it last in submersion of freshwater for up to 1.5 meters for as long as half an hour.
You do not get a charger in the box, not a problem if you already own a Samsung Galaxy and have a charger on hand, but is a bit of a hassle if you need a new one.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is priced at $1,799 and will be available starting August 27.
