built on conscience
For the first time in a foldable smartphone, the Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G are equipped with waterproof IPX8, so users no longer need to worry about getting caught in the rain.
The two devices are also built from the new Armor Aluminum, the toughest aluminum ever used in a Galaxy smartphone, and the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus to resist accidental scratches and drops.
In addition, both smartphones have a new stretch PET screen protector and optimized layers of the display panel, resulting in the main screen being 80% stronger than previous devices.
The Hideaway Hinge, first introduced on the Galaxy Z Flip, allows devices to stay in place at any angle for an innovative Flex Mode user experience. And with improved cleaning technology, the internal cleaning brushes are shorter, which helps repel dust and other particles and maintain device durability.
The Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G have also undergone extensive flexural tests validated by Bureau Veritas for 200,000 flexural strength tests. In addition, the devices are equipped with the latest 5nm access point and 5G band compatibility, making it convenient for indoor and outdoor use.

With the Galaxy Z series, users will have access to more apps that make the most of the foldable screen. Samsung is expanding partnerships with leading companies such as Google, Microsoft and others to ensure that users can enjoy their apps tailored to their individual needs. You can collaborate effectively with the Microsoft Teams app and enjoy an optimized meeting experience that adapts based on the Galaxy Z Series Flex Mode and the connectivity between Office and Teams.
For maximum productivity at work, Microsoft Outlook for Samsung Folds dual-pane mode allows users to read their entire email while viewing others, just like they do on the desktop.
To provide users with even more choice, a new feature from Samsung Labs gives users the ability to further optimize foldable screen apps when they need it.
