The new phones represent the beginning of a new chapter in foldable mobile innovation.
Comprising the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, the latest generation of the Galaxy Z Series brings together key improvements and expert craftsmanship.
Both smartphones provide greater durability and more optimized experiences than ever, with iconic design and immersive entertainment.
“As the new Galaxy Z Series enters the UAE market, Samsung is proud to have once again risen up to the innovation challenge and set new standards in the smartphone world,” said Osman Albora, Senior Director – Mobile Division of Samsung Gulf Electronics.
“With today’s increasingly digital environment comes greater demands for flexibility, versatility, and technological empowerment – and these same areas are where consumers will be introduced to new possibilities with the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3,” Albora added.
For the first time on a foldable smartphone, Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 are equipped with IPX8 water resistance, so users no longer have to worry when caught in the rain.
Both devices are also built with new Armor Aluminum—the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone—along with the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus to protect against scratches and accidental drops.
In addition, both devices include a new protective film made of stretchable PET and optimized display panel layers resulting in a Main Screen that’s 80 percent more durable than previous devices .
Samsung continues its legacy of foldable leadership the revolutionary Hideaway Hinge, first introduced on Galaxy Z Flip, enables the devices to stay in place at any angle for innovative user experiences with Flex mode.
Thanks to enhanced Sweeper technology, the bristles inside the Hinge are now shorter, helping to repel dust and other particles and maintain the devices’ durability and seamless user experiences.
Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 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 band compatibility for the best experience inside and out.
Users can unfold the Galaxy Z Fold3 to immerse in theater-like viewing experiences with the 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display—thanks to Samsung’s new Under display camera technology.
With minimum pixels applied on top of the camera hole, Galaxy Z Fold3 features an increased viewable area so users get an unbroken canvas for their favorite apps. With the new Eco² display technology applied to the screen, it’s 29 percent brighter while consuming less energy.
Experience even smoother scrolling and quick device interaction with the Super Smooth 120Hz adaptive refresh rate now on both the Main and Cover Screens.
Samsung is bringing its beloved Note series technology to Galaxy Z Fold3—the S Pen functionality. Users can take advantage of fully optimized S Pen features on their foldable screen, which is a perfect fit for on-the-go multitaskers.
Productivity seekers will also enjoy Galaxy Z Fold3’s enhanced Flex mode features, which let you do more at once, such as joining a video call on the device’s top screen while checking meeting notes on the bottom.
With Galaxy Z Fold3’s 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. And now on Galaxy Z Fold3, users can create a shortcut and reopen apps in the same way later thanks to enhanced App Pair. Plus, they can use Galaxy Z Fold3’s new Taskbar to quickly switch between apps without returning to the Home screen.
Galaxy Z Fold3 comes with a choice of three timeless colors: Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Silver.
Galaxy Z Flip3 empowers users to express themselves with bold color options, a sleek design, and premium features. 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, Galaxy Z Flip3 is a device for true self-expression. For those in search of even more color options to fit their style, Samsung.com carries exclusive colors, such as Gray, Pink, and White .
The redesigned Cover Screen is now four times larger and makes it easier to view notifications and messages without having to open Z Flip3. Users can keep up with their schedule, check the weather, and monitor their daily step count with new Cover Screen widgets or coordinate the Cover Screen wallpaper with their new Galaxy Watch4 or Galaxy Watch4 Classic for a matching look. And with Samsung Pay built directly into the Cover Screen, it’s never been easier to check out on-the-go at the local coffee shop.
Z Flip3 is also crafted to give users the best capability for capturing and sharing memories. Packed with some of our latest camera features, users can take even more stunning selfies hands-free with Flex mode. Or they can keep the device folded and capture a quick photo—and now, even video—right from the Cover Screen using enhanced Quick Shot by double-clicking Z Flip3’s power key. Plus, scrolling and sharing are super smooth, thanks to Z Flip3’s new 120Hz adaptive refresh rate .
Galaxy Z Flip3 is great for relaxing and watching a YouTube vlog or a TV show hands-free. Thanks to Galaxy Z Flip3’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. And 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 Galaxy Z Flip3, 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. ICA/Expat Media
