Samsung Galaxy S3 hands-on photos

Check our out full written review of the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Our full hands-on impressions of the Galaxy S3 are on the way, but for those who can’t get enough of Samsung’s new phone, we snapped a bunch of pictures of it on the show floor last night. Above are some shots of the physical hardware of Samsung’s new flagship Android phone as well as the new user interface, which is supposedly inspired by “human emotion.” Overall, the phone is quite impressive, with so many new features that we fail to even scratch the surface in these pictures. We’d need hours with the phone to fully explore all of its newness. But until we get that opportunity, you’ll have to settle for some pictures, videos, and impressions, live from the CTIA 2012 trade show in New Orleans.

This new folding phone might kill the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6
Xiaomi Mix Flip clamshell phone.

Samsung is the reigning champion in the market for foldable phones, but many other brands are joining the race with better offerings, more features, and competitive pricing. The latest additions are from Xiaomi, which is extending its lineup of foldable phones with two new models, including its first clamshell-style flip phone.

Earlier today, Xiaomi's founder and CEO Lei Jun posted a string of teasers about the company's first flip phone -- the Xiaomi Mix Flip. Like the Motorola Razr Plus 2024, the cover screen on the Mix Flip occupies the majority of the outside area and even wraps around the cameras. The bigger highlight of the flip phone, however, is not its crown jewel cover display, but its cameras, which were designed in partnership with German camera brand Leica.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 was recently revealed at Galaxy Unpacked and it is, pardon us, flippin' marvelous. While Samsung hasn't made many big changes to the formula that made last year's Galaxy Z Flip 5 so good, it has bolstered the Z Flip 6 with a more durable body, upgraded internal specs, and a new main camera lens that makes it a much more enticing prospect for picture takers.

But there's more to a phone than just its specs or its camera, and for many people, the convenience of wireless charging is a big deal. Or perhaps you simply have a bunch of wireless charging pads and don't want to waste them. Either way, you're going to want to know if the Z Flip 6 has the ability to charge wirelessly. Here's whether (or not) the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 has wireless charging.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 was recently announced, and it's surely far from affordable for most of us. While the outer glass body is toughened with Gorilla Glass, the inner screen is not as durable. While Samsung has reduced the use of any protective plastic covering, including the previously included screen protector on other phones, the Flip and the Fold are too expensive to be handled without it.
