The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the latest iteration of the series and will be released alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 3, both of which are 5G-ready devices. The major difference between them is that the top half of the Flip 3 folds down horizontally, going from a candy bar-style phone to a flip phone. The Fold3 folds in half and unfolds vertically, like a book, to swap between a candy bar-style phone and a widescreen phablet. Both handsets will be available in unlocked and carrier-specific versions, with several customization options — like how much internal storage is included.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 features a 1.9-inch external display, and a 6.7-inch AMOLED display on the interior, when unfolded, which has a 120Hz refresh rate. When folded, that external display takes over to show notifications, messages, and more. It also includes 8GB of RAM, storage from 128GB up to 256GB — UFS 3.1 — and is powered by a 3,300mAh battery. You can fast charge the phone, choosing between 15W wired or 10W wireless options.

You also get a dual 12MP rear camera with a wide-angle and ultrawide support, and a 10MP front-facing camera. An IPX8 rating ensures the phone is protected from the elements, alongside Aluminum Armor and Gorilla Glass Victus. What’s more, it comes in several vibrant colors, so you can choose your favorite. The lavender color is divine! You wouldn’t think so, but there are plenty of unique cases out there ahead of the official launch, too!
