At the “Unpacked” event, Samsung introduced a suite of the latest gadgets from the Galaxy series and other wearables. The highlight, however, is its foldable innovation in the smartphone market: the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G.
For the first time ever on a Galaxy foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G are equipped with IPX8 water resistance. Both devices are also built with our new Armor Aluminum — the strongest aluminum ever used on a Galaxy smartphone — along with the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus to protect against scratches and accidental drops.
Both devices include a new protective film made of stretchable PET and optimized display panel layers resulting in a Main Screen that’s 80% more durable than previous devices.
The revolutionary Hideaway Hinge, first introduced on Galaxy Z Flip, enables the devices to stay in place at any angle for innovative user experiences with Flex mode. The enhanced Sweeper technology allows the bristles inside the Hinge to be shorter, helping to repel dust and other particles and maintain the devices’ durability.
Galaxy Z Fold3 5G
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is designed with a 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display with the new Under Display Camera technology. With minimum pixels applied on top of the camera hole, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G features an increased viewable area so users get an unbroken canvas for their favorite apps. With the new Eco display technology applied to the screen, it’s 29% brighter while consuming less energy. Experience even smoother scrolling and quick device interaction with the Super Smooth 120Hz adaptive refresh rate now on both the Main and Cover Screens.
For the first time ever on the Galaxy Z series, Samsung is bringing its beloved Note series technology to the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G —the S Pen functionality. The S Pen Fold Edition features a specially engineered retractable Pro tip with force limit technology to protect the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G’s Main Screen. The latest S Pen experience has lower latency for true-to-life composition — ensuring that note-taking and sending messages are seamless and intuitive.
Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
The redesigned Galaxy Z Flip3 5G Cover Screen is now four times larger and makes it easier to view notifications and messages without having to open the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. Users can keep up with their schedule, check the weather, and monitor their daily step count with new Cover Screen widgets or coordinate the Cover Screen wallpaper with their new Galaxy Watch4 or Galaxy Watch4 Classic for a matching look.
The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is packed with some of Samsung’s latest camera features, users can take even more stunning selfies hands-free with Flex mode. Or they can keep the device folded and capture a quick photo — and now, even video — right from the Cover Screen using enhanced Quick Shot by double-clicking the power key. Plus, scrolling and sharing are super smooth, thanks to its new 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.
Thanks to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G’s new, upgraded Stereo Speakers with Dolby Atmos, users get immersive sound with incredible clarity, depth, and spatial effects. And the new Flex Mode Panel feature makes apps look better and easier to use. When the device is partially folded, Flex Mode Panel gives you new ways to interact with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, offering a more convenient viewing experience by moving the video to the top half of the screen and the show’s controls — like brightness and volume — to the bottom half.
Joining the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is the Galaxy Buds2 designed for a comfortable fit made to be worn all day, and provides premium sound quality. As one of the latest additions to the Galaxy Buds lineup, the Galaxy Buds2 join the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Pro, providing more choices to consumers to fit their needs. As a part of the Galaxy ecosystem, the Galaxy Buds2 makes the perfect companion to every Galaxy smartphone, tablet, or smartwatch.
The dynamic two-way speakers deliver crisp, clear high notes and a deep bass, while Active Noise Cancellation helps block out unwanted noise. If users need to hear the sounds in their surroundings, they can just simply tune back in with three adjustable ambient sound levels. And now their voice will be clearer on calls, thanks to a new, machine learning-based solution that filters out a variety of distracting background noises.
Galaxy Buds2 is Samsung’s smallest and lightest earbuds yet boasting an iconic curved shape. For a more perfect fit, Samsung developed the “Earbud fit test” in the Galaxy Wearable app.
