Third time’s a charm as Samsung announced the third iteration of its Fold series, the Samsung Galaxy Fold3 5G! Along with the Galaxy Flip3 5G, these new premium foldable smartphones were built with the craftsmanship and flagship innovations Samsung users have come to love and expect.
For the first time ever on a Galaxy foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is equipped with IPX8 water resistance, so users no longer have to worry when caught in the rain. It is also built with their new Armor Aluminum — the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone along with the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus to protect against scratches and accidental drops. The Galaxy Fold3 also includes a new protective film made of stretchable PET and optimized display panel layers resulting in a Main Screen that’s 80% more durable than previous devices.
When unfolded, the Samsung Galaxy Fold3 5G becomes a large 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display letting users immerse into a theater-like viewing experience. A new cool feature is its Under Display Camera technology. With minimum pixels applied on top of the camera hole, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G features an increased viewable area so users get an unbroken canvas for their favorite apps.
Some Fold users and others who were able to experience using the device (including myself) wished that the Galaxy Fold would also have an S-Pen functionality. This feature, originally found in the Note series is now with the Galaxy Fold3. Users can take advantage of fully optimized S Pen features on their foldable screen, which is a perfect fit for on-the-go multitaskers. On the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s massive Main Screen, it’s easier than ever for users to jot down notes during a video call or check off a to-do list while reading emails, as users can also power their creativity and productivity with our fan-favorite S Pen. The S Pen Fold Edition features a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s Main Screen for peace of mind.
Productivity seekers will also enjoy the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s enhanced Flex mode features, which let you do ore at once, such as joining a video call on the device’s top screen while checking meeting notes on the bottom. With the updated Multi-Active Window, it’s even easier to make dinner plans over text while checking your calendar, all on the device’s large screen. And now on the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, users can create a shortcut and reopen apps in the same way later thanks to enhanced App Pair. Plus, they can use the new Taskbar to quickly switch between apps without returning to the Home screen
With the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, users will get access to more apps that take full advantage of the foldable screen. Samsung is expanding partnerships with leading companies like Google, Microsoft, and more, so users can enjoy more of their go-to apps tailored to their unique needs. Collaborate effectively with Microsoft Teams app: Enjoy optimized meeting experience adapting based on the Flex mode of your Galaxy Z series and the power of Office and Teams coming together. For the best productivity at work, Microsof Outlook’s dual-pane mode for Samsung foldables enables users to read a full email while previewing others on the side, just like a desktop experience. To bring users even more choices, Samsung’s new Labs feature offers users the ability to optimize even more apps to the foldable screen when needed.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is built with a sleeker, thinner, and lighter design for even better portability than Galaxy Z Fold2 5G. It comes with a choice of three timeless colors: Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Silver. It will retail at P87,990 SRP for 256GB (Phantom Black and Phantom Silver) and P95,990 for the 512GB variant (Phantom Black and Phantom Green).
