Short description Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3

This is a smartphone on Android 11 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a good camera that has 3 modules (12 MP Wide, 12 MP Telephoto, 12 MP UltraWide), and this smartphone also has a very cool front camera, which has 2 modules (16 MP Wide, 10 MP Wide). The body of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 has received a non-standard form factor: folder (flip phone) with a flexible touch screen. This type of case began to be popular in 2019-2020, this became possible primarily due to the technologies, and, of course, marketers had to justify the inflated expectations of customers for new products. And Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 has such features: additional small screen with a diagonal 6.2" Super AMOLED, a slot for two SIM cards, folding screen (so that the phone body can be folded), cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there), dust and water protection and supports stylus.

Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Samsung. This time these guys announced Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3. This is a 5G-smartphone on Android 11 in 2021.

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 Fold3 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 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 Fold3 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 6.2-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.

Good Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 battery received a volume of 4 400 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has huge flexible touchscreen Dynamic AMOLED 2X with diagonal 7.6″ and with refresh rate 120 Hz. As it is now fashionable in smartphone design, this model also received a punch-shaped cutout above the screen. And besides, the front panel is 80-90% occupied by the touchscreen.

The thickness of such a body with a screen from edge to edge is 6.4 mm. This is a very good indicator, any smartphone with such parameters of the case conveniently fits in the hand and they can be easily used.

The case Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 has a dust and water protection. Today this feature has already become the standard. Since 2017, more and more smartphones are manufactured with the protection of the enclosure in accordance with IP67, IP68, etc.

The stylus is supported in Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3. With it, you can always draw or write anything on the smartphone screen. The stylus is hidden in the case and gets out of there only when you need it. It is convenient and very functional.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 got the main camera with multiple modules (triple camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 12 MP UltraWide. And there is also a front camera that has multiple lenses (smartphones with dual selfie cameras): 16 MP Wide + 10 MP Wide. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera very good, which will surprise you with its high quality shooting of selfie. It seems that we have already written many times that before buying you need to see a smartphone and hold it in your hands. And speaking about cameras, I would like to repeat the same idea once again — look at the reviews about this model, see examples of photos taken by this smartphone. It often happens that in search of a low price, you buy a model with a camera of tens of megapixels, but the photos and videos will not be of high quality.

Processor and Internal Memory

The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 has 8-core Snapdragon 888 5G (5 nm). RAM here with size 12 GB.

Available versions Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 with different amount of built-in memory: 256/512 GB. Note that the more memory, the more expensive the smartphone.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 will begin in August 2021 at a price of $1799. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
