Samsung has unveiled the next-iteration of its flip-phone resurrection, with the Galazy Z Flip 3 being revealed at the company’s recent Unpacked event.
What is it?
The Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 is the third revision of the foldable phone that the South Korean company has been trying to perfect for the past few years. It features a 6.7-inch display when fully open, and can essentially fold in half, making it very portable and minimal to carry. Furthermore, it features a smaller 1.9-inches display on the back that can be used when the device is in its closed-mode. It houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G chip paired with 8GB RAM, so it’s also packing a decent punch for its size.
There are two 12MP cameras on the rear, with a 10MP pinhole camera in the screen for selfies and video-calls. It is also 5G compatible, and includes a fingerprint sensor on the side of the device, along with a 3,300mAh battery, so a bit smaller than average smartphones, but its a sacrifice to take given the form factor.
Two storage options are available: 128 and 256GB models, and the device is available in cream, green, lavender, black, grey, pink, and white colour options.
Price and release date
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 will cost you just R21,999 with a 17 September launch date.
