Samsung opens the next chapter in mobile innovation

Samsung Electronics today opened the next chapter in foldable innovation with two new smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G.

Both devices are premium foldable smartphones built with the craftsmanship and flagship innovations that Samsung users have come to love and expect. From iconic design to immersive entertainment, Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 give users unique new ways to work, watch, and play. 

For those who need the ultimate device for productivity and immersive entertainment, Z Fold3 is a true multitasking powerhouse with next-level performance, an undisrupted 7.6-inch1 Infinity Flex Display, and the first-ever S Pen2 support on a foldable device. For those who want the style that comes with function, Z Flip3 is the ideal device with its sleek, compact, and pocketable design, enhanced camera features, and a larger3 Cover Screen built for quick use on the go. 

“With Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3, 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,” said 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 Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. These devices equip consumers with technology that unlock new ways to maximise and enjoy every moment with an ecosystem built on openness and innovation.” 


 Advanced Craftsmanship Built to Last 

Samsung users expect foldable devices that are built to last. For the first time ever on a foldable smartphone, Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 are equipped with IPX84 water resistance, so users no longer have to worry when caught in the rain. Both devices are also built with new Armor Aluminium 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 a foldable PET5, optimised for the Main Screen panels. 

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 mode6. With the enhanced Sweeper technology, the bristles inside are now shorter, ensuring dust and other particles stay out of the Hideaway Hinge while maintaining a slimmer design. Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 have been put through a strenuous folding test, verified by Bureau Veritas, to withstand folding 200,000 times7 . Plus, they’re equipped with the latest powerful 5nm AP and 5G8 band compatibility for the best experience inside and out. 


Galaxy Z Fold3 5G: Ultimate Productivity and Entertainment 

Unfold Z Fold3 to immerse yourself in theatre-like viewing experiences and stay fully engaged in your favourite content on the uninterrupted 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, Z Fold3 features an increased viewable area so users get a near unrestricted canvas for their favourite apps. With the new Eco² display technology applied to the screen, it’s 29%9 brighter while consuming less energy10. Experience even smoother scrolling and quick device interaction with the Super Smooth 120Hz adaptive refresh rate now on both the Main and Cover Screens. 

For the first time ever on the Galaxy Z series, Samsung is bringing its beloved Note series technology to Z Fold3: S Pen functionality11. Users can take advantage of fully optimised S Pen features on their foldable screen, which is a perfect fit for on-the-go multitaskers. On Z Fold3’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, Z Fold3 users can power their creativity and productivity with our fan-favourite S Pen. S Pen for Z Fold3 comes in two options: S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro12. Both feature a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect Z Fold3’s Main Screen for peace of mind while using the S Pen.

Productivity seekers will also enjoy Z Fold3’s enhanced Flex mode features, which let you do more at once—such as join a video call on the device’s top screen while checking meeting notes on the bottom. With Z Fold3’s updated Multi-Active Window13, it’s even easier to make dinner plans over text while checking your calendar, all on the device’s large screen. And now on Z Fold3, users can create a shortcut and reopen apps in the same way later thanks to enhanced App Pair. Plus, they can use Z Fold3’s new Taskbar14 to quickly switch between apps without returning to the Home screen. 


Galaxy Z Flip3 5G: The Ideal Balance of Style, Function, and Nonstop Fun 

Z Flip3 empowers users to express themselves with bold colour options, a sleek design, and premium features. With the choice of four trendy colours—Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black—plus new stylish ring grips and strap cases16 that make it even easier to hold and fold the phone, Z Flip3 is a true self-expression device.

The redesigned Cover Screen is now four times larger18 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 device colour for a matching look. 

Z Flip3 is also crafted to give users the best capabilities 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 a video—right from the Cover Screen using enhanced Quick Shot by double-clicking Z Flip3’s power key.

Z Flip3 is great for relaxing and watching a YouTube vlog or a TV show hands-free. Thanks to 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. The new Flex Mode Panel feature also makes apps look better and easier to use. When the device is partially folded, Flex Mode Panel gives you new ways to interact with 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. 

The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 will be available for pre-order beginning August 12, and they will launch in early September. There will be exclusive offers available on Samsung.com/nz for all Z Fold3 or Z Flip3 pre-orders.
