Nearly a year after the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung has finally revealed the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, the brand’s third-generation foldable flagship. The latest entry in Samsung’s Galaxy Fold family not only brings improved specs and displays, it’s also Samsung’s first phone with an under display camera!
Yes, you read that right, the Galaxy Z Fold3’s internal 7.6-inch (1,768 x 2,208 resolution) AMOLED folding display has an under display camera. This means the main folding display does not have a notch, and the 4MP front camera just appears whenever you need to take a selfie. Aside from the under display selfie shooter, this main display also has a fast 120Hz refresh rate.
On the outside, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has a 6.2-inch (832 x 2,260 resolution with a 24.4:9 aspect ratio) AMOLED display which also has a 120Hz refresh rate, though it doesn’t have the under display shooter found in the main screen. Instead, this outer display has a small holepunch notch for its 10MP shooter.
Moving on to the main camera setup, the Galaxy Z Fold3 has a triple 12MP camera setup, with the main camera packing optical image stabilization. This camera setup should perform similarly to previous Galaxy flagships in terms of image quality.
Powering the new Samsung foldable is a Snapdragon 888 processor, meaning it has 5G connectivity. This flagship processor is paired with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage.
As for battery, the Galaxy Z Fold3 packs a 4,400mAh battery that supports 25W fast wired charging, as well as wireless charging.
Finally, the Galaxy Z Fold3 is the first Fold device to support the S Pen.
