Well, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is here and it brings a few upgrades to the formula that made the Z Fold 2 quite cool. It has a very similar design and hinge, but we now have water resistance, slightly better screens, a new processor, S Pen support, and a new software experience that really makes use of the foldable form factor. Hopefully, the same software will trickle down to previous Folds via an update (and sooner would be better). This phone is Samsung’s best take at a foldable yet.
It’s a number of small improvements — as a whole, the jump from Z Fold 2 to Z Fold 3 is nowhere near as huge as the one between the original Fold and the Fold 2. So, if you have last year’s edition, don’t feel too pressured to upgrade (unless you can make use of one of those lucrative trade-in offers).
Update July 2022: The Galaxy Z Fold 3 held gracefully, but was ultimately succeeded by the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, which was released in August 2022. With improvements in core areas like performance, software functionality, and so on.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is is the successor of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and it comes with 6.2-inch AMOLED front cover display and big 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate when unfolded. Under the inner foldable display sits Samsung’s first under display camera with 4MP sensor. Specifications also include Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor under the hood, 4400mAh battery and triple setup camera on the back with 12MP main sensor.
