MemberSeptember 18, 2021 at 10:05 am
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the most recent attempt to make foldable phones go mainstream.
Despite a price drop between the Z Fold 2 and this new iteration, the Z Fold 3 is still one of the company’s most expensive smartphones, with both starting at £1599.
Its headline feature is, understandably, the second, larger screen that emerges from the middle of the device as the user unfolds it like a book – switching from the 6.2in outer display to the 7.6in internal one.
Samsung has also updated this recent model with better waterproofing, stronger housing, and support for its S Pen stylus (£44, Samsung.com) on both screens.
With such a high price tag and a limited range of optimised apps at time of writing – although Samsung says the top 100 apps people use will be ready for launch – it is unlikely to be the first choice for regular users when buying a new smartphone; but for those with the money to spend, or that want to be on the verge of consumer tech, Samsung has made the Z Fold 3 the most attractive it’s been yet.
