Samsung Electronics Canada revealed two new smartphones: the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G.
The Galaxy X Fold3 5G has a 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display and offers S Pen support, the first foldable Galaxy mobile device to do so. The Flip3 5G, meanwhile, offers enhanced camera functionality and a sleek, compact design. Both work seamlessly with the Galaxy Buds2.
“With Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, Samsung is once again redefining possibilities with foldable smartphones that empower users with the flexibility and versatility needed for today’s fast-paced world,” says 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 to unlock new ways to maximize and enjoy every moment with an ecosystem built on openness and innovation.”
For the first time on a foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G are equipped with IPX83 water resistance. Both devices are also built with our new Armor Aluminum – the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone -and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus to protect against scratches and accidental drops. Both devices also include a new protective film made of stretchable PET4 and optimized display panel layers – resulting in a Main Screen that is 80% more durable than previous foldable models.
The Hideaway Hinge, first introduced on Galaxy Z Flip, enables Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G 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, says Samsung. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G were also put through a folding test for durability and longevity verified by Bureau Veritas and come equipped with the latest powerful 5nm AP and 5G8 band compatibility.
Unfold Galaxy Z Fold3 5G to reveal the 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display. With minimum pixels applied on top of the camera hole, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G features an increased viewable area. The display is 29% brighter while consuming less energy, and the 120Hz adaptive refresh rate on both the Main Screen and Cover Screen enable smooth scrolling and quick device interaction.
For the first time ever on the Galaxy Z series, Samsung is bringing S Pen functionality so owners can take advantage of optional S Pen features on the foldable screen. Using S Pen on the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s Main Screen makes it easier to jot down notes during a video call, for example, or check off a to-do list while reading e-mails. The S Pen for Galaxy Z Fold3 5G comes in two options: S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro. Both feature a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s Main Screen.
The enhanced Flex mode features 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. Updated Multi-Active Window technology makes it easier to organize dinner plans over text, while simultaneously checking your calendar on the device’s large Main display, for example. And now on the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, Enhanced App Pair allows users to create their own shortcuts to reopen apps in the same way later for a customized experience. The new Galaxy Z Fold3 5G Taskbar makes it easy to quickly switch between apps without having to return to the Home screen.
With a sleeker, thinner, and lighter design for enhanced portability, Galaxy Z Fold3 5G comes in Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and Phantom Silver. Available for pre-order now, officially on sale as of August 27, the 256GB model is $2,270, and the 512GB model in Phantom Black is $2,410.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G (128GB in Cream, Green, Lavender $1,260, 256GB model in Phantom Black $1,330) boasts a redesigned Cover Screen that is now four times larger, making it easier to view notifications and messages without having to open Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. Users can keep up with their schedule, check the weather, and monitor their daily step count with new Cover Screen widgets. The Cover Screen wallpaper can also be customized to reflects each user’s personality, or outfit of the day. Samsung Pay is built directly into the Cover Screen.
The hands-free Flex mode can be used to capture photos and video right from the Cover Screen, without having to unfold, with Quick Shot. Scrolling and sharing content is also enhanced by a smooth, 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.20
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G has upgraded Stereo Speakers with Dolby Atmos and the new Flex Mode Panel delivers new ways to interact when the device is partially folded.
Samsung is expanding partnerships with leading companies like Google, Microsoft, and more, so users can enjoy more of their go-to apps tailored to their unique needs. Collaborate with Microsoft Teams, for example, and enjoy an optimized meeting experience that adapts based on the Flex mode of your Galaxy Z series, with Office and Teams coming together. For productivity at work, Microsoft Outlook’s dual-pane mode for Samsung foldables enables users to read a full e-mail while previewing others on the side, replicating a desktop experience. The new Labs22 feature offers the ability to optimize even more apps to the foldable screen as needed.
Announced alongside the Galaxy Z Series are new Samsung Galaxy Buds2. Designed to fit comfortably for all day wear, Galaxy Buds2 have two-way speakers, Active Noise Cancellation with three adjustable ambient sound levels, and new machine learning-based solutions that filter out distracting background noises. Galaxy Buds2 are the smallest and lightest earbuds yet from Samsung, boasting a curved shape with the ‘Earbud fit test’ in the Galaxy Wearable app that allows users to find their perfect fit. Available in four contemporary colours —graphite, white, olive and lavender, they are available now for pre-order for $190, and will also be available for purchase starting August 27, 2021.
