Overview Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3
Android version and market relevance
More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2021 and choose from them. And, secondly, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 it works in the fifth generation (5G) networks, so you can work on a smartphone in the mobile Internet with the same high speed as at home on a Wi-Fi connection (up to 100 Mb/s). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.
Screen, body and battery
Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:
- The diagonal of the main screen in the open position can be doubled, because the screen is flexible (see the catalog for all smartphones with flexible screens);
- The smartphone has an additional 1.9-inch Super AMOLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
- Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
- The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
- The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
- And, of course, the high price of this model, because the cost of manufacturing technology for smartphones with flexible screens is still very high.;
- But, the undoubted plus of such a flip smartphone is the uniqueness and interest of the friends, colleagues and partners around you, perhaps even some special status.
We advise you to immediately watch the video reviews and photos from real life of this smartphone. All promotional materials from the manufacturer will only show the pros of this flip smartphone. But with its high price, you need to find out both the pros and cons of this model before buying. Now let’s move on to describing other important characteristics in more detail.
Dynamic AMOLED 2X edge to edge flexible touchscreen with a diagonal 6.7″ and refresh rate 120 Hz mounted on the front panel Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, thickness 6.9 mm, which has a dust and water protection.
The battery in Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 is installed on 3 300 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is the minimum acceptable, we recommend looking at other smartphones with a powerful battery.
In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added very small hole at the top of the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.
Main camera and selfie camera
A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 10 MP Wide. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras.
The main camera got several modules (dual camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP UltraWide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very weak cameras at the moment. If you have a little more money, then we suggest adding and buying one of the camera phones, which we sorted separately in our catalog. Why do you need a camera with multiple modules in a smartphone? And what are the advantages of such a camera? This allows you to take very beautiful portraits with bokeh (blurred background) effect. And an additional lens with a different focal length provides a high-quality approximation (zoom) for photography. In addition, software algorithms can improve the quality of the photo after processing frames from each camera module.
Processor and Internal Memory
After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3. The smartphone received 8-core processor on the chipset Snapdragon 888 5G (5 nm). RAM is built-in 8 GB.
But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 128 GB and plus another option for 256 GB. But memory cards, unfortunately, with this smartphone, you can not use, because the manufacturer did not provide for them a slot.
Price for Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3: buy or not to buy?
A huge new smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 you can choose and buy in any store at a price of $999. Sales start at August 2021.
We made a brief review of this model, we also recommend that you look at photos and videos about it. In our opinion, the smartphone turned out to be very powerful in performance, but with a conventional camera.

Timeline of news and rumors Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 announcement: improved case and foldable screen durability, added water resistance, reduced price by 25% (now from $999)
Every August, Samsung holds the Unpacked presentation to showcase its new devices. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 smartphone was announced at the event. This is a modified and improved version of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Let’s take a look at the list of improvements.
The Galaxy Z Flip3’s form factor remains the same as the previous model. The weight of the device remained unchanged (183 g), and the dimensions also remained almost the same with a maximum difference of 1.4 mm, which is not noticeable at all (166×72.2×6.9 mm).
The diagonal of the external display has been increased from 1.1 to 1.9 inches. The smartphone has improved the strength of the case: added IPX84 water protection, added Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protective glass to the external screen (the strongest one on the market now), and the internal flexible 6.7-inch screen was protected with a film coating from Samsung (thanks to this, the screen became on 80% more durable), the overall frame of the device is assembled on a frame made of durable aluminum (Armor Aluminum).
The main screen is made using Dynamic AMOLED technology, received Full HD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, which was not in the previous model. But the set of cameras in the Galaxy Z Flip3 remained the same as it was: inside there is a 10 megapixel selfie camera, outside there is a dual camera 12 + 12 megapixels.
In our opinion, Samsung has done a good job of fixing the bugs. In February 2020, I did not want to buy the first model because of fears that the smartphone would be quite «raw», but today it seems that Galaxy Z Flip3 can already be considered as a potential purchase option. Moreover, Samsung has reduced the price by 25%. If you remember the price was $1,449 for the Galaxy Z Flip 5G model, and now the same smartphone with an improved body is on sale for $999).
Galaxy Z Flip3 is expected to be announced this summer, and the Flip2 index will be skipped
Don’t expect the Galaxy Z Flip2 to be announced, as rumors have revealed that Samsung is announcing the Galaxy Z Flip3. The announcement will probably be in early July 2021, the price will be around $1380.
What specs will the Galaxy Z Flip3 have? It is only known about the screen size (6.7-inch internal, 3-inch external display), 3300 mAh battery, Android 11, Snapdragon 888 processor (5 nm), internal memory 128/256 GB.
This is all the information that is known today. More rumors will emerge closer to the announcement. But the most interesting thing we will learn, of course, at the official presentation this summer.
