Without any doubt, the South Korean company is leading the foldable smartphone sector with this year’s Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3. After constant improvements and modifications, Samsung has reached an acceptable level of technological maturity in foldable technology. If you are keen to have a foldable smartphone in your pocket, it’s time to buy one from Samsung. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be the company’s more popular foldable device for the year, but here are reasons to consider the Galaxy Z Flip 3 as well.
Pricing for Galaxy Z Flip 3 has reached a reasonable level and unlike early foldable models from Samsung and Huawei, it is finally more affordable for many people. Latest information said that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be around $950, which puts it into the regular flagship category. If you are regularly investing on a flagship smartphone model, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 should fall into your price range. It’s certainly a good sign and may indicate that we will get more “affordable” foldable smartphones in the future. Mass production, increased demands and competition are driving the price down.
Good form factor and display size
The clamshell foldable design of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is certainly appealing for men who want to carry something less bulky. We could say that the phone will be quite attractive for many women as well, because it won’t take too much space in their small purses. Many people still use iPhone 8, because it’s incredibly pocketable and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be a great upgrade for their devices. We could expect that the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have large display when unflipped, making the device functional for replying to messages and playing games. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 will be lighter than its foldable cousin, which is an added bonus for people who are looking for a smaller form factor. The flip mechanism is simpler and more durable than the potentially problematic foldable design.
Foldable and flippable devices are definitely more stylish than regular smartphones. They will be an eye-turner in many social situations. Although style and fashion are subjective topics, Galaxy Z Flip 3 will definitely make you more stand out, at least until more people use foldable devices as well. There are definitely issues of having a flip smartphone, like cameras with no outstanding features and noticeable crease on display, but they are still acceptable for many people.
Despite its compact form factor and stylish design, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will remain a productivity powerhouse. The original Z Flip has Snapdragon 855+ chipset and 8GB RAM, so it makes sense to expect the Z Flip 3 to have Snapdragon 888 or at least Snapdragon 870 with 12GB or 16GB RAM. These Qualcomm’s chipsets are more than enough for any mobile task, including heavy-duty gaming. For business professionals who want to take a very quick note, the Z Flip 3 will be incredibly responsive with no lag when switching between apps.
