Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Flip3 5G - THE EDGE SINGAPORE

To flip or to fold? 

By Felicia Tan

Those who grew up between the late 1990s and the early 2010s will remember the flip phone — or clamshell design — fondly.

Back then, there was nothing cooler than to answer your phone calls by flipping open your device to say “hi”.

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Z Flip3 5G aims to recreate that experience — only bigger, better and brighter.

The latest flip phone offering from the Korean electronics giant comes with a redesigned cover screen at 1.9 inches, which is four times larger than the original Galaxy Z Flip 5G. 

The phone’s main screen measures 6.7 inches. This makes it easier for users to view notifications and messages without actually having to flip the phone open. 

The phone also comes with some of Samsung’s latest camera features, including taking selfies hands-free.  Furthermore, the phone allows users to snap photos — whenever, wherever — with the device folded or open.

If you use your phone to watch YouTube videos or TV shows, the phone lets you prop your device up, which can come in handy when you’re eating, or require your hands for other tasks.

The phone comes in cream, green, lavender and phantom black. The Samsung Online Store offers three more exclusive shades in grey, pink and white.

Now, should you prefer a phone that offers you plenty of screen space and yet is easy to tote around, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G checks all the boxes. 

The model comes with an undisrupted 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display, 22.6% more than the Galaxy S21 5G’s 6.2-inch screen.

When folded, the phone allows users to check their text messages, as well as use other compatible applications on its Multi-Active Window. 

When open, users get to feel like they’re toting a mini laptop around. For instance, the phone’s Microsoft Outlook app offers the full desktop experience displaying full emails with previews on the side.

The phone comes with a separate S Pen for those seeking a more tablet-like experience. 

The S Pen itself comes in two options — the S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G comes in phan- tom black, phantom green and phantom silver, and retails from $2,398 for a 256GB phone.

The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G retails from  $1,398 for a 128GB phone. Both models will be available in Singapore from Sept 10.
