Open for all to see, this foldable puts a 7.6-inch OLED display in your hands. The Galaxy Z Fold3 is a smartphone of utmost luxury. This is where innovation meets lifestyle and productivity. Barely in stock for weeks on end, you can now order your Z Fold3 without delay.

The design of the Galaxy Z Fold3 can only be described as «state of the art». Or I do, at least. Why? You won’t find a more compact foldable with better specifications, given the price and availability. Nevertheless, this isn’t the end of the line, but a considerable step in the right direction. Our customers also noticed this after launch. Meaning that the Galaxy Z Fold3 was barely available in its first few weeks, and then not at all. But we’re out of the woods now, and you can order your Fold3 directly without delay.

We’ve covered the most important specs. Let’s move on to some special highlights. The Galaxy Z Fold3 is Samsung’s first smartphone with an under-display camera. Thus, the inner display is a continuous black surface. How does that work? Above the optics, the pixel grid isn’t as dense and the built-in camera can take pictures «through» the display. Of course, this is always accompanied by a loss of image quality. Selfies therefore do look a bit rough.

However, the user interface makes up for this shortcoming. Samsung has adapted their One UI for tablet use, so you can work in multiple apps at the same time as well as drag and drop them. This isn’t only true for Samsung’s own apps, but also for popular ones such as YouTube, Microsoft Office, Spotify, Gmail and many more. Adjustments were optimised for «Flex Mode», which is when you set your device at 90 degrees and place it in front of you. Control elements are displayed in the lower section, while you can see your video call in the upper part. See more info about One UI here:

How a workhorse equips itself

The Galaxy Z Fold3 can be upgraded with additional accessories. One accessory in particular appealed to me, reminding me of old times. the S Pen. It’s what the Galaxy Note series became known for. A Galaxy Z Fold3 without the S Pen would’ve been unimaginable. At least not for me, since I like to do my image editing on the Fold with the S Pen.

Also listed, for the sake of completeness, are the quick and wireless charger. All these accessories aren’t included in the scope of delivery.
