What’s new in the Galaxy Z Fold 3?

With a focus on productivity, one of the biggest updates on the Z Fold 3 is S Pen support, which Samsung already offers on its Note and Galaxy Tab S7 tablet range. Now, customers can choose between the S Pen Fold Edition or S Pen Pro to use with the Z Fold 3. Both S Pens have special retractable tips designed to protect the screens from excessive force. Samsung is offering customers a free S Pen with purchase.

See our review, where it received 4/5 stars and a Tech Advisor Recommended badge.

Other productivity highlights on the Fold 3 include a new Taskbar for faster and easier access to apps, and ‘Flex mode’, which allows users to multi-task across the two screens. Fold 3 owners can, for instance, use one half of the phone for video calls (with optimised support for Microsoft Teams) and the other half for notetaking.

There’s greater durability too. Samsung promises the Fold 3 can withstand folding up to 200,000 times, while new IPX8 water resistance, an “Armour Aluminium” chassis – which Samsung claims is the strongest aluminium used on a phone – and a Gorilla Glass Victus display that’s “80% more durable than previous devices”, also join the list of durability upgrades.

If you missed the Galaxy Unpacked event, here’s how to watch it again.
