You’ve probably seen them on your feeds by now and you’re probably smitten by them, too. Samsung’s two new foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, are simply stunning! Both devices are premium foldable smartphones built with the craftsmanship and flagship innovations Samsung users have come to love and expect.
However, this generation incorporates key improvements that Samsung foldable users have asked for, making them more durable with more optimized foldable experiences than ever before.
A Multi-Tasking Powerhouse
For those who need the ultimate device for productivity and immersive entertainment, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is a true multi-tasking powerhouse with next-level performance, an undisrupted 7.6-inch 1 Infinity Flex Display, and the first-ever S Pen 2 support on a Galaxy foldable device.
With minimum pixels applied on top of the camera hole, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G features an increased viewable area so you will get an unbroken canvas for your viewing pleasure. With the new Eco² display technology applied to the screen, it’s also 29% brighter while consuming less energy.
You can also take advantage of fully optimized S Pen features on the foldable screen, which is perfect if you’re an on-the-go multitasker. On the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s massive Main Screen, it’s easier than ever for users to jot down notes during a video call or check off a to-do list while
reading emails. The S Pen Fold Edition even features a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect the main screen for peace of mind.
Productivity seekers will also enjoy the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s enhanced Flex mode features, which let you do more at once. You can join a video call on the top screen while checking meeting notes on the bottom, for example. With the updated Multi-Active Window, it’s even easier to make dinner plans over text while checking your calendar, all on the device’s large screen.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G comes with a choice of three timeless colors: Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Silver. It will retail at Php87,990 SRP for 256GB (Phantom Black and Phantom Silver) and Php95,990 for the 512GB variant (Phantom Black and Phantom Green).
Style Meets Function
For those who want style that comes with function, Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is the ideal device with its sleek, compact, and pocketable design, enhanced camera features, and a larger Cover Screen 3 built for quick use on the go.
The redesigned Cover Screen is now four times larger and makes it easier to view notifications and messages without having to open the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. You can keep up with your schedule, check the weather, and monitor your daily step count with new Cover Screen widgets or coordinate the Cover Screen wallpaper with your new Galaxy Watch4 or Galaxy Watch4 Classic for a matching look.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is also crafted to give the best capability for capturing and sharing memories. Packed with some of their latest camera features, you can take even more stunning selfies hands-free with Flex mode. You can even keep the device folded and capture a quick photo or video right from the Cover Screen using enhanced Quick Shot by double-clicking the power key.
Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is great for relaxing and watching a YouTube vlog or a TV show hands-free, too. Thanks to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G’s new, upgraded Stereo Speakers with Dolby Atmos, you get immersive sound with incredible clarity, depth and spatial effects, no matter what you’re watching or listening to.
Plus, the new Flex Mode Panel feature makes apps look better and easier to use. When the device is partially folded, Flex Mode Panel gives you new ways to interact with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, offering a more convenient viewing experience by moving the video to the top half of the screen and the show’s controls—like brightness and volume—to the bottom half.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G comes with the choice of four trendy colors—Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black—plus new stylish ring grips and strap cases that make it even easier to hold and fold the phone. The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G will be available at Php52,990 SRP for the 128GB variant and Php56,990 SRP for the 256GB variant.
Advanced Craftsmanship Built to Last
For the first time ever on a Galaxy foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G are equipped with IPX8 4 water resistance, so you no longer have to worry when caught in the rain.
Both devices are also built with our new Armor Aluminum—the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone—along with the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass to protect against scratches and accidental drops. In addition, both devices include a new protective film made of stretchable PET 5 and optimized display panel layers resulting in a Main Screen that’s 80% more durable than previous devices.
Additionally, the revolutionary Hideaway Hinge enables the devices to stay in place at any angle, while the enhanced Sweeper technology keeps the bristles inside the Hinge short in order to repel dust and other particles.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G were also put through a strenuous folding test, verified by Bureau Veritas, to withstand folding 200,000 times. Plus, they’re equipped with the latest powerful 5nm AP and 5G 9 band compatibility for the best experience inside and out.
“With Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, Samsung is once again redefining the possibilities with foldable smartphones that empower users with the flexibility and versatility needed for today’s fast-paced world,” exclaims Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “As a pioneer and industry leader in the foldable category, we’re proud to build on our legacy of innovation with the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. These devices equip consumers with technologies that unlock new ways to maximize and enjoy every moment with an ecosystem built on openness and innovation.”
