Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

Meet the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G. The first water-resistant foldable phone with S Pen stylus support. Lighter and more durable than before.

What is the Samsung Galaxy Z Series?

The Galaxy Z Series is a range of phones from Samsung, made up of the Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Galaxy Z Flip3. They’re designed for people who want a little extra from their smartphone, and who aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd.

The range includes two different types of foldable screen - the Samsung Flip phone folds vertically, and the Samsung Fold folds horizontally. Both phones offer larger phone screen experience whilst still being compact enough to slip into a packet or bag, and they’re designed to be thinner and lighter than previous models with added water resistance2 and S Pen compatibility3.

The best Z Series phone: Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3

Thin, light and with a super-sharp Dynamic AMOLED 2x display, the Galaxy Z Fold3 is a mobile powerhouse to redesign work and play, paired with the power of 5G speeds◊. Use the 6.2-inch edge-to-edge Cover Display like a regular smartphone when it’s folded, or open it up to experience cinematic viewing on the 7.6-inch Infinity Flex Display. Use three apps at once with Multi Window, and use Flex Mode to split your screen - take a video call on the top half, and jot down notes with the S Pen on the bottom half1. You can also use Flex Mode to capture hands-free photos - just prop Galaxy Z Fold3 on a flat surface and flex into your optimum position. The 12-megapixel triple rear camera with Ultra Wide, Wide-angle and Telephoto cameras allows you to showcase your photography like never before - use Dual Preview on both screens to show your subject your shot.

What's the latest Galaxy Z Series phone?

Both the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 are the newest Z Series devices - they were both released at the same time in August 2021. The original Galaxy Fold was released at the end of 2019, and the original Galaxy Flip was released in early 2020.

What is the Cover Display?

The Cover Display is the display which shows when your phone is fully folded or flipped closed. You can set up your Z Series phone to receive customised notifications, or you can swipe left to bring up the music controls to play, pause, or switch songs.

When you get a notification, you can address it in multiple ways. For example, if you want to answer a text, tap the notification on the Cover screen and then tap again to go directly to the Messages app. You can also swipe left or right to reject or receive calls.

You can even take selfies with the cover display as a mini preview window. Double press the side key to bring up the Camera app, and then press the volume key to take the shot.

What is Flex Mode?

Flex Mode allows you to bend and balance your phone, thanks to its folding or flipping properties. You can use your phone hands-free by standing it up on a surface to take selfies at whole new angles, make video calls, or capture long-exposure images without the use of a tripod.

The screen cuts the interface of various apps in half, putting the view on top and the controls on the bottom, making it easy to use your phone to do something like capture a selfie or take a video call on the top half and makes notes on the bottom half of your phone.

Does the Z Series use folding glass?

The Galaxy Z Series use Samsung Ultra Thin Glass - it's a sheet of folding glass that’s thin and flexible, and stands up to the folds and unfolds of daily life. The science behind it explains how folding glass is possible - even solid materials can bend and flex if they’re thin enough. Samsung have used this knowledge and produced glass that's thinner than a single human hair, making it flexible. This folding glass isn't just flexible - it's also incredibly tough, keeping your smartphone safe when the display's open.

What is the S Pen?

The S Pen is a special stylus in which works with the Galaxy Note series, as well as several other Galaxy devices - like the Galaxy Z Series and the Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G.

The S Pen Fold Edition only works with the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, whereas the S Pen Pro works with any other S Pen-compatible device. You can also buy S Pens for designated devices, such as the Galaxy S22 Ultra S Pen or Note 20 Ultra S Pen. The Galaxy Z Flip3 is not compatible with any S Pens.

The S Pen allows you to 'write' on the screen and take notes on your device, like you would do normally with a pen and paper - however, you can do much more than annotate. Use Air Command gestures to swipe and scroll, and you can even use it as a remote control to take photos from a distance, control PowerPoint presentations, and browse your gallery. 

The S Pen Pro comes with Easy device switching and Easy Finding, so you can easily switch between compatible devices that use S Pens.
