Samsung customers demand long-lasting foldable gadgets. As a result, the Galaxy Z devices in this generation are designed with unsurpassed craftsmanship.

The Hideaway Hinge, first seen on the Galaxy Z Flip, allows devices to stay in position at any angle, allowing for novel user experiences with Flex mode7. The Hideaway Hinge is also lighter and more streamlined than ever. The bristles inside the Hinge are now shorter thanks to improved Sweeper technology, which helps resist dust and other particles while maintaining the devices’ durability and flawless user experiences. Z Fold3 and Z Flip3 were also put through a rigorous folding test, which was validated by Bureau Veritas, and were found to be able to endure folding 200,000 times8. They’re also packed with the most powerful 5nm AP and 5G9 band compatibility for the best inside and outdoor experience.

The Cover Screen has been revamped to be four times larger, making it simpler to see notifications and messages without having to launch Z Flip3. With new Cover Screen widgets, users can keep track of their calendar, check the weather, and track their daily step count, or match the Cover Screen wallpaper to their new Galaxy Watch4 or Galaxy Watch4 Classic for a coordinated aesthetic. It’s never been easier to check out at the neighborhood coffee shop on the fly with Samsung Pay embedded right into the Cover Screen. The Z Flip3 is also designed to provide customers with the finest possible capability for collecting and sharing memories. Flex mode is packed with some of our newest camera features, allowing users to snap even more amazing selfies while remaining hands-free.

The Z Flip3 is ideal for unwinding while watching a YouTube vlog or a TV show.

Flex Mode Panel allows you new ways to interact with Z Flip3 when the device is partially folded, providing a more comfortable viewing experience by relocating the video to the top half of the screen and the show’s controls—such as brightness and volume—to the bottom half.
Foldable Experiences that are Optimized Open Your Mind to New Possibilities
More apps that take advantage of the foldable screen will be available with the Galaxy Z series. Samsung is increasing its collaborations with industry leaders such as Google, Microsoft, and others so that consumers may access more of their favorite programs that are suited to their specific needs. With the Microsoft Teams app, you can efficiently collaborate: Enjoy an improved meeting experience that adapts to your Galaxy Z series’ Flex mode and the power of Office and Teams working together. Microsoft Outlook’s dual-pane mode for Samsung foldable boosts efficiency at work by allowing users to read a full email while previewing others on the side, exactly like on a desktop. To bring users even more choices, Samsung’s new Labs feature offers users the ability to optimize even more apps to the foldable screen when they need it.
Samsung continues to rethink how app developers can create amazing user experiences from anywhere. To provide them with more options while ensuring high-quality optimization, Samsung supports Remote Test Lab(RTL), giving app developers the ability to directly install and test their applications in real-time, from wherever they are.
