Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 Is a Foldable Smartphone Made To Maximize Productivity
In lieu of putting out yet another Galaxy Note to succeed its Note 20, Samsung has opted to welcome a new foldable model into the Galaxy family, unveiled at its Galaxy 2021 Unpacked event. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a device designed to maximize productivity through the convenience that a tool like a folding screen provides.
In addition to packing 120Hz displays, the creators of the Z Fold 3 took heed of the Galaxy Note’s potential and incorporated its same S Pen stylus support. The model was also given an attractive makeover to strengthen its durability, as well as lengthen its lifespan.
Samsung has put out a few Folds before — but the device won’t suffer from the risks of cracked screens as its predecessors. The screen’s protective film is 80 percent stronger and layered with a Gorilla Glass Victus cover for maximum protection against drops and cracks.
And if a user just so happens to accidentally submerge their device underwater for 30 minutes, the Z Fold 3 is rated IPX8 for water resistance protection.
With 12GB of RAM, the model comes in versions of either 256GB or 512GB storage. It’s also equipped with three rear cameras — f/1.8 wide, f/2.0 ultra-wide and f/2.4 — and an under-display front-facing camera, updated from its former hole-punch style.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 will be available for pre-order beginning 1 September 2021, and the purchase period continues until 30 September 2021. Redemption starts from 17 September till 31 October 2021. The recommended retail price for Galaxy Z Fold3 is R37 999. The recommended retail price for Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is R29 999.
