Display and Design
When comparing the Samsung Galaxy Z flip 3 5G to its predecessor, there isn’t much that has changed, but there is no doubt that the cover has undergone a significant transformation.
To begin, the cover now sports a dual-colour design, with the top side of all colour selections being totally black. Phantom Black, Green, Lavender, Cream, White, and Pink, Gray are just a few of the colour options available.
Apart from the dual-colour design, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G has a larger display, measuring 1.9 inches with a resolution of 260 x 512 pixels, compared to the 1.1-inch cover display with a resolution of 112 x 300 pixels on its predecessor.
Samsung believes that having a larger display cover display allows you to conduct more things without opening the fold. The functionality of the cover display in Samsung’s implementation goes beyond the basics, such as checking the clock and receiving notifications.
Now there’s enough room on the screen for music controls and widgets. When you don’t want to use the camera within the fold, you can basically use this new 1.9-inch cover display as a viewfinder for snapping selfies.
one has a greater resolution of 1080 x 2640 pixels, as opposed to 1080 x 2636 pixels on the previous model.
This inner display is built on a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel, which is richer than its predecessor’s ordinary Dynamic AMOLED. Furthermore, it has a 120Hz refresh rate as opposed to the former’s 60Hz.
We have a punch-hole camera at the upper centre position, so there’s no crazy under-display camera tech here.
Water Resistant to IPX8
The Z Flip 3 5G, like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G, has an IPX8 rating, which reduces fragility and means that enthusiasts won’t have to worry as much about water damage.
With an IPX8 rating, this foldable smartphone is water-resistant, which means it has a good chance of surviving water accidents for the most part.
The cameras on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G are essentially identical to those on its predecessor, but actual use may reveal improvements.
The same dual-camera arrangement is present on the back, with a 12MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8 and a 12MP ultrawide camera with a field of view of 123. Video capture on this rear camera array is limited to 4k at 60 frames per second.
On the selfie side, we’re greeted with a 10MP selfie camera, which is essentially the same as the previous model in terms of on-paper specs. This camera has an aperture of f/2.4 and can record videos in 4k at 30 frames per second.
Hardware and Software
On the performance front, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G CPU powers the Samsung Galaxy Z Flp 3 5G, which is a step up from the Snapdragon 865 5+ processor that powered its predecessor.
We also get the Adreno 660 GPU, extra 128GB / 256GB storage options, 8GB RAM, and the same non-removable 3300mAh battery as the predecessor. In addition, 15W wired charging and 4.5W wireless charging are available.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G uses the One UI 3.5 user interface on top of Android 11 as its operating system.
A USB Type-C 3.1 connector with OTG support, NFC, low-energy Bluetooth 5.2, and wifi/hotspot are all included on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G.
The maximum speed of the internet is 5G, which means you may use it for downloads, uploads, streaming, and surfing.
