Folding phones have been a fascinating topic of discussion over the past few years. They offer a tantalizing look at a futuristic technology, where your gadget can shrink and expand at will. Samsung has just released the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, one of their newest foldable phones alongside the more professional Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, and because of its much lower price point, the dream of owning one of these futuristic devices is now in reach for a larger number of people.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G has all of the features of a top-of-the-line smartphone we’re all familiar with. What makes it stand out is that it folds to becomes a smaller phone that’s more convenient to carry around. Then, just flip it open to use its main screen.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 has a tall 6.7-inch Infinity Flex Display with a 120Hz refresh rate making it super smooth when scrolling. When you need to put it in your pocket, the device can fold into a mere 4.2-inch pocketable phone.
Even while folded, the phone is still usable thanks to its 1.9-inch Cover Screen that displays the time, date, and notifications. It even has access to the cameras, so you can take selfies with the phone even in its folded state using main dual cameras.
Previous fears of durability have also been addressed with this model as it now has an IPX8 rating for water resistance which means it’s safe to use in the rain or by the pool. It’s the world’s first water-resistant foldable smartphone actually. The main screen is made of Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass with an extra protective film. The hinge is also 80% more durable than before and can withstand up to 200,000 folds.
Its folding design also makes unique applications possible with its Flex Mode. You can fold the Galaxy Z Flip3 to a right angle, set it down on a flat surface, and it can stand on its own. This makes it possible to shoot more unique photos and videos, as well as more convenient to watch videos and make video calls.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 is equipped with 5G connectivity so you can enjoy the fastest network speeds on the go, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of expandable storage, and a 3300mAh battery. It also has a 10MP front camera, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a 12MP wide-angle camera.
