Overview

A whole new world unfolds

Introducing the sleekest, most advanced foldable device to yet… Galaxy Z Fold3. Engineered with all the hallmarks of Samsung’s original Galaxy Fold, and much more. With two displays and a free-stop hinge, its pioneering form-factor enables features never-been-seen on a smartphone of its type, all designed to revolutionise how you work and play. It’s lighter, thinner and more durable than ever before. Samsung also hid the camera under the Main Display for a truly uninterrupted view. Plus, for easy note-taking, Galaxy Z Fold3 is now compatible with S Pen1 for an unrivalled experience.

Works with S Pen1

For Easy Note-taking

Armour Aluminium

Gorilla Glass Victus

IPX82

Water & Dust Resistance

Samsung’s strongest
aluminium frame yet

Galaxy Z Fold3 is designed to work and play as hard as you do. IPX8-rated water and dust resistance2 means you can catch up on your favourite show in the bath panic-free. And with a body encased in an Armour Aluminium frame, ultra-durable hinge and scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass Victus - bump and drop protection never looked so good. The folding design naturally protects the main 7.6" display, and the screen is totally crease-free.

Make hard
work, easy

With more screen comes more possibilities. Unfold your potential with the ability to open up three app windows at once, and drag content across the different apps with ease. Dropping photos into emails or moving a graph from one Microsoft app to another is more seamless than ever - leaving you time to get a head-start on your latest project. In Flex mode, split the screen to take hands-free video calls on the top half while simultaneously taking notes on the bottom half. And to take productivity to the next level, the innovative S Pen1 is now compatible with Galaxy Z Fold3 - so you can take handwritten notes and turn them into professional documents, effortlessly.

Photography reimagined

Experience photography in a new dimension on Galaxy Z Fold3. Flex your picture skills with two screens, giving you twice the control. With Dual Preview, see on both screens so you and the crew can see your shot before the shutter snaps. With Capture & View, take advantage of the vast unfolded display with the ability to preview shots on the left side while capturing shots on the right side. And with Flex mode, hands-free photos will never be the same again - just prop Galaxy Z Fold3 on a flat surface, flex into the optimum position and flash the palm of your hand to trigger the timer.

Adaptive Refresh Rate

A cinema and games arcade
in your pocket

Galaxy Z Fold3 is the category-defying smartphone that can do it all. Unfold an immersive 7.6" display, featuring an under-display camera and Dolby Atmos sound so that you can truly lose yourself in your world. With 5G-readiness3 and an Adaptive Refresh Rate that accelerates to 120Hz when you need it most, you can leave low-res, stuttering gameplay in the dust. And the best part? With the combination of a folding glass display and free-stop hinge, you can stream hands-free with the action in the top half and controls in the bottom.

Unfold great performance

Galaxy Z Fold3 houses Samsung’s fastest chip on a Galaxy Z. The 5nm Snapdragon processor and 12GB RAM ramps up all the performance you’ve been looking for. And deleting is old-school. With 256GB and 512GB onboard storage options, there’s plenty of space for your media, games and files. To top it off, Galaxy Z Fold3 has a 4,400 mAh4 intelligent battery that adjusts its power for those longer-than-usual days.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It could be great, but... I wasn't sure about the folding phone, but since the only upgrade from Note 20 Ultra was this, I decided to try it. After almost four months, the phone looks like in the picture, and I am in limbo since I was advised not to change the screen protector by myself, and they don't know when or if they will have it in stock. Plus, the screen is now at risk of being scratched, and I can not do anything about it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compromised, but fantastic!!! It's a compromised phone, without a doubt, as the front screen is too small. It's awkward to open the phone as there's no lip or anything to grab hold of. The battery is too small and it's too heavy. Also very expensive, but I bought mine second-hand so a lot less money. Although there are drawbacks, it's a great phone. You soon get used to the rather small front display and it becomes a lot easier to manage. Battery life can be maximised if you make sure all unnecessary background tasks are shut down....there are several sites that explain this so I won't go into details, but make sure Chrome is not running in the background as this seems to use a lot of battery. I'm not a heavy user so the battery is fine in everyday use. I expect heavy users may need to charge during the day, but the battery is adequate. Opening the phone to reveal the main display becomes easier as you use it. Samsung could perhaps add a small tab on the side to aid opening. The phone is heavy, but because it is fairly compact this isn't too much of an issue and it's easy to fit in a pocket. The plus points are typical of most high end Android devices. The displays are very good indeed, if not quite as good as something like the Samsung S21, but you'd be hard-pressed to notice the slight reduction in resolution. Certainly when watching Youtube or iPlayer the quality is noticeably better than the iPhone 12 pro max which I had previously. I much prefer this phone as the iPhone has a rather odd screen ratio which you have to keep altering when watching videos. The phone works a lot better in my car than the iPhone, the calls are a lot louder and clearer than I was used to on the iPhone. Apple restricts bluetooth connectivity so this phone, as with other Android phones, connects well. You can of course customise the phone much more easily than an iPhone due to the less restrictive software. The main display is brilliant although again somewhat compromised. Some videos play more or less full screen whereas others don't, but it brilliant to have the extra size and the resolution is just superb so videos are sharp and contrasty. I have noticed the occasional lag compared to the iPhone which is very slick, but the latest Android release (12)seems to have improved this. This is a new phone of course so Samsung will smooth out any bugs I'm sure. Overall I'm impressed with the phone and would look at buying another in the future if the price is right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multitasking Device I cannot fault this device its features are endless. Accessories needs are limited due to size of fold. S pen very responsive feature I don't think I can live without. Cameras on Fold 3 is very good. Some apps are not fully compatible as yet due to size and resolution but still early days and updates on apps will resolve this early bugs. All in all very happy with device and discovering new features everyday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apps and features The most beautiful and phenomenal phone and tablet in 2021! This is worth waiting for rather than the Samsung galaxy z fold 2. So many things that can be done on the fold 3 5g and the size is upto 512gb!!
