A smartphone that can fit in the pocket of pants is becoming extremely rare today. To keep a large display area, without the constraint of dimensions, Samsung has just launched its Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. Mobiles that could well be the first to democratize access to folding smartphones.
We have been talking about the revolution that folding smartphones could bring about for years. While they were until now positioned in the very high end with an elitist price, the situation could well change with the two models unveiled by Samsung. Thus, with an entrance ticket of 1,059 euros, the is now the very first folding smartphone offered at the price of a traditional premium mobile.
It is therefore a concentrate of high-end technologies in a smartphone that folds in half to fit in any trouser pocket. Folded up, the mobile measures only 8.64 cm in height. Closed, it has a small 1.9 inch screen that gives access to many widgets to interact with thethe most practical of the smartphone. It also displays notifications, without needing to open the mobile. Unfolded, it is a 6.7-inch screen that we find, a screen refreshed to 120 to ensure perfect display fluidity.
To silence the critics on the fragility of such a mobile, the screen is 80% morethan on previous models. For the hull, the materials used are also robust and the mobile is even waterproof. As a result, the smartphone will certainly be beefier than any current high-end mobile in the event of a fall. Another advantage is that the mobile can be folded up at 90 ° to watch a film, take a photo remotely with a wave of the hand, or make a video call.
The right price
Beneath this foldable display sits the mighty888 of Qualcomm, a 5G and 8 GB of and 128 or 256 GB (1,109 euros) of storage. Two batteries accumulating 3,300 mAh are available. On the photo side, the smartphone is equipped with two 12-megapixel camera dedicated to taking wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle photos. A captor 10 megapixel camera is also available, although it is possible to take selfies thanks to the video feedback of the mini display . The Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes in black, cream, and green. For the launch of the smartphone, Samsung offers up to € 700 estimated discount for the return of your old phone, up to € 150 of free accessories and Samsung Care + insurance (valid for 1 year).
In addition to this Z Flip 3, the brand also offers the very high end from 1,799 euros. The predecessor already foreshadowed what would be the “Cadillac” of the foldable smartphone and this version 3 confirms this outcome. The Z Fold 3 opens like a book and can be paired with an S Pen Fold Edition or S Pen Pro stylus. The 7.6-inch screen, displaying 2.208 x 1.768 and refreshed to 120 Hz, turns it into a real of pocket. You will not see a selfie sensor and yet it is indeed available, but hidden under the screen with its 4 megapixels. It will prove to be very useful for “video”, but it is better to prefer the outdoor module on the side of the 6.2-inch screen with its 10 megapixels.
