Samsung has finally unveiled it’s long-awaited Samsung Z Fold 3, and it appears to be more robust, productive, and immersive. The new foldable phone represents Samsung’s dedication towards technological innovations and the depth of its technological know-how. The device is compatible with the S Pen stylus, offers more resistance, and intuitively hides the camera inside its internal screen.
The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 was long-awaited, especially considering the absence of a new Galaxy Note release in 2021. The phone was discussed for quite a long time and rumors have already painted a full picture of the key specs of Samsung’s new foldable smartphone. Therefore, the launch was merely a formality because several leaks have already made people aware of the awesome features the phone will adorn.
Before discussing the internals, it will be prudent to highlight its build quality. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 does not attempt to deviate much from its predecessor, the Z fold 2. While the Z Fold 2 came with some major improvement over the first-generation foldable phones, Z Fold 3 further refines the concept and improves key details. Besides, waterproof capability further adds to its glitter, and we can safely assume it to be the first waterproof foldable smartphone.
The durability is further improved with the use of a resistant aluminum frame paired with Gorilla Glass Victus that offers high resistance against breakage. In short, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 offers a solid build, and users will much appreciate its durability.
The new Fold 3 three has a dual 2X Dynamic AMOLED display, both of which support a 120 Hz refresh rate. The external display has a diagonal of 6.2 inches and a resolution of 832 x 2260 px. A standard 10 MP camera is punch drilled inside the screen. The internal screen has dimensions – 7.6 inches diagonally and a resolution of 1,768 x 2,208 px. In short, both the screens offer a pixel density of 370 ppi. While it’s slightly thinner than its predecessor when folded, it still remains quite thick – 16 mm on the hinge side and 14 mm on the outer edges. Moreover, the phone remains quite bulky, with a weight of about 271 grams. However, that’s a slight improvement over its predecessors.
Moving further, The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G will be powered by the Snapdragon 888. Likewise, the chipset will be paired with 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of storage; however, there is no option to expand the storage.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 supports two pen stylus editions – the S Pen Fold Edition And S Pen Pro for better productivity. However, the S Pen doesn’t have any dedicated slot on the phone for storage. You have to buy an external case for this purpose.
