Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 product details

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, often written as 'Flip3', is Samsungs third generation foldable phone. The appearance is similar to its predecessor except for a few points, yet the Flip 3 does offer a lot of improvements. Here we will try to explain those and after that it will hopefully become clear why this is the most important foldable at the moment.

Larger Cover Screen

The Galaxy Z Flip3 is largely about the outside. So this year, there are more colors to choose from and plenty of accessories available. For example, cases with a key ring in various colors. You can dress up your Flip3 just the way you want. The top half has a black bar in which the cameras are located and the outer screen. This time it has a 4x larger surface area so you can display more information. The 1.9 Cover Screen is touch sensitive and can therefore be used to operate your phone.

Flippin' Awesome

Flip it open and an immense 6.7 inches unfolds. Amaze friend and foe alike how such a large screen fits into such a small phone. This is the power of foldables. The screen has a high 120Hz refresh rate so that animations look incredibly smooth. Samsung applies a sharp FHD + resolution and uses a bright AMOLED panel. Colors seem to splash off the Infinity Flex Display. The crease is not really visible during use, except when the screen is off. The Flip 3 features a sturdier PET top layer that is 80% more resistant to scratches. The hinge is also sturdier this time around. It's protected by Armor Aluminum and has been tested to fold in and out 200,000 times.

Main Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Specifications

  • Foldable 6.7 inch Infinity Flex Display with FHD+ resolution and fast 120Hz playback
  • 4 times larger 1.9 inch Cover Screen made out of AMOLED panel
  • Only 86,4mm long when folded
  • Waterproof IPX8 housing
  • 12+12MP exterior camera with wide angle and ultra-wide angle
  • 10MP selfie camera inside sits in punch-hole
  • Choice of 128 or 256GB storage memory (not expandable)
  • Powerful 5nm processor at up to 2,84GHz and with 8GB of RAM
  • 3300 mAh large battery is 15W fast charge and with 10W wireless
  • Capable of 5G and 4G (LTE Cat.20)
  • Dual speakers with Dolby Atmos sound

First waterproof foldable

This is also the first time Samsung has made its foldable waterproof. The Z Flip 3 has an IPX8 rating. The '8' stands for waterproof. The 'X' reveals that the Flip 3 is not dustproof. However, this time Samsung has used smaller nylon brushes in the hinge so that dust doesn't get in as easily. Prevention is better than cure, so stay away from dust and sand. What is also welcome is the slightly lower starting price. It doesn't break the thousand mark but we expect it to be nicely below it after a few months. That's good news because it makes foldables accessible to a wider audience. This Flip 3 deserves it because it is perhaps the most suitable foldable for most of us.

Samsung renames Galaxy Z Flip 3 due to Ukraine war

Remarkable ·

Samsung has been placing its foldable phones in the Galaxy Z series for some time. The letter looks like its folded and is therefore the ideal name for its foldable lineup. But the letter is now also strongly associated with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Time for Samsung to take action.

In some markets, Samsung is now renaming the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 to Galaxy Fold 3 and Galaxy Flip 3. For now the renaming only occurs in a handful of countries including Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Samsung no longer wants to be associated with the letter Z

It is suggested that the name change will eventually extend to the Ukraine and several European countries. Creating marketing materials, packaging and advertising is expensive and it is best to do it only once. The letter 'Z' is used by Russian troops as a vehicle marker and has recently become synonymous with support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Several Western companies have left Russia in protest and because of sanctions. Samsung has also stopped shipping phones to Russia since early March 2022.

Galaxy Z name

Samsung began using the Galaxy Z name in 2020 with the introduction of the Galaxy Z Flip. Successive foldables were all part of the Galaxy Z series. This now seems to have come to an end for the time being because you don't want to be associated with a war.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3; waterproof and customizable

Phone news ·

During a special Unpacked event, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The third generation Flip will have a waterproof casing, larger screen on the outside and plenty of accessories to personalize it to your liking.

The biggest eye-catcher of the Z Flip 3 is the four times larger Cover Screen. It now measures 1.9 inches diagonally and can therefore display a lot more text. Many other specifications have remained the same like the 6.7 inch foldable screen, the double 12MP camera and the battery capacity. There are some subtle differences though.

New Z Flip3 is waterproof

For example, the inner screen now has a refresh rate of 120 Hz which gives a lot smoother animations. The Flip 3 is further equipped with an improved hinge mechanism that can better keep out dust. It's still not dustproof, but it is waterproof for the first time. This gives it an IPX8 rating. Also new are the stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support.

Personalization

Where the specifications of the Galaxy Z Flip3 are a small update, Samsung innovates especially in the area of personalization. Thanks to a whole range of accessories you can tailor the Flip3 entirely according to your own wishes. Starting with the extra color options in which the Flip 3 will soon be available; Cream, Green, Lavender and Phantom Black. There will also be cases with ring holders or cords attached, which will be available in numerous colors. Some of these will be available exclusively from Samsung.

Availability and price Z Flip3

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be available in stores from August 27th but can already be ordered. Those who do so will receive a year of Samsung Care+ as a gift, which will protect their phone against water and crash damage. If you also trade in your old mobile, you will receive up to €200 extra in trade-in value. The entry-level price starts at 1,049 euros. That is 200 euros cheaper than what the Flip 5G was first sold for.

More renders of Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 leaked

One render shows possible launch date

Rumors ·

New renders of Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 3 have surfaced. The foldable device showed itself earlier but now we also get a look inside and we see all its future colors. One of the images also shows a date. Could this be the launch date of the Flip 3?

Green, purple, gold and black. Judging by the images below, these colors seem to be certain for the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip3. The source also talks about gray, pink, blue and white but we don't get to see images of those (yet).

The picture is clear by now; a flip phone with dual tone coloring. The secondary screen outside promises to be a lot bigger (1.9 inches) and the cameras also get an update with a more prominent place. Inside, a 6.7-inch screen is expected, just as before. Inside, however, there seems to be some improvement. A new Snapdragon 888 processor versus the Snapdragon 865+ of the Flip 5G.

Launch date Galaxy Z Flip 3

Another render of the Flip3 shows the secondary screen on the outside. And on it, you can see something interesting: a date. "Wednesday, August 11". Could this be the possible launch date? It's quite possible. Samsung itself previously mentioned "later this summer" and mid-August fits nicely under that. But as with everything in life, nothing is guaranteed, so we'll just have to wait for an official invitation.

Does this render hint at the launch date?

As for the future price, Samsung may have another surprise up its sleeve. There is talk of a significant price drop of perhaps as much as 20 percent. Presumably, this will not drop the retail price by the magic thousand-euro mark but we are getting close.

Alleged photos show Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Fold 3

Tablet news ·

We may have gotten a look at the future Flip 3 and Fold 3. These 2 new foldable phones from the Galaxy Z series have not been announced yet but that may not be long in coming. The images appear to be from a promotional video, though we're still keeping an open mind.

The images are from a number of sources that are not yet very well known. So we can't vouch for its authenticity. The leak starts with the Galaxy Z Flip 3; the third iteration of Samsung's clamshell foldable. Samsung skips the Z Flip 2, though the 5G version of Z Flip can be regarded as the 2nd Flip.

For the Z Flip 3, Samsung seems to be using a two-toned design. This makes it look a bit like former Pixel phones. It was previously thought that Samsung might apply the same Contour Cut Camera style as with the S21. There doesn't seem to be any question of that. Possibly to better integrate the secondary screen into the design. On the Z Flip, it is still very prominent visible. The leak also clearly shows that the screen will be a lot bigger, something that was already taken into account. Instead of only 2 rows of text we see at least 5 in the example.

More color options for Flip 3

Also, the foldable Flip 3 seems to come out in at least 4 different colors; white, gray, purple and blue/green. The previous generation was only available in 2 colors; Mystic Bronze and Mystic Gray. Specifications are not given except for what is visible on the images. There we can read that the device is wrapped in the new Gorilla Glass Victus. The hinge also looks different and is possibly even sturdier with more protection against dust and dirt.

Fold 3 first with Under Display Camera

The future Galaxy Z Fold 3 will also get the sturdier Gorilla Glass Victus with a new hinge. The biggest eye catcher seems to be the selfie camera, which is placed invisibly under the screen. This makes the Fold 3 the first to have a so-called Under Display Camera

On the back of the successor to the Fold 2, there seems to be 3 cameras. Strangely enough, there is no Contour Cut Camera here either. Why exactly should become clear when Samsung announces the Fold 3. The only reason we can think of for now is that the device might look a bit too fat. But let's wait until Samsung officially announces both phones, until then everything is still uncertain.

Yet another new camera design

The Fold3 is also expected to be the first Fold with support for Samsung's S Pen. This means that you can not only operate it with a stylus, but also take notes with it. Ideal for such a large screen. It is also rumored that the Galaxy Fold 3 is the first foldable phone with a waterproof IP rating. For this, the necessary changes would be needed, especially to the hinge. The launch of both phones seems to take place somewhere around June/July. In the meantime, a lot can change.
