Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G: Specs & features released, It comes with 6.7” & 1.9” Screen, 120Hz, SD 888 & More

The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G full specifications and features released. so read carefully, in this article we are going to discuss about this phone all specifications. In the box you get a USB Type C to Type C cable & a sim card tool.

Design - It’s thin & light! Look at it, it’s nice. We can’t say this about many phones, but it literally fits in the palm.There are very few phones that we can talk about in this form factor. And the Z Flip3 is one of them. And interestingly it’s a very lightweight phone.  It’s 184-185g on our scale. But, it feels so good!

Build Quality - It feels really premium & has Gorilla Glass Victus on the front as well as back. And it’s not a fingerprint magnet. As for the fit & finish, there’s some space in the middle & the phone rests on the 2 sides. And the flip feels really nice, look at this, you can set the flip at any position you want. And it’s completely flat when you open it & it doesn’t look like a foldable phone at all. Yes, you do see the crease in the middle but it’s nice. The flip build is better than I expected for sure! And flip is not flimsy. You have to make an effort to open it. You can open & close it with 1 hand, but it’s not easy & you’ll have to open it using both hands. but yes it does come with a screen guard.

Ports & Buttons - Below, there’s a speaker grill, a USB Type C port & 2 microphones. On the left, there’s a sim card tray & a noise cancelling microphone. On the right, there are volume keys above & a power on/off button that’s also a side mounted fingerprint sensor. There’s nothing else except antenna lines everywhere. Let’s check the sim card slot. It has a single sim card slot, but it’s a dual sim phone. It has an aluminium frame armour. And this build quality is really good! Just like the Z Fold3, the Z Flip3 is going to last. It doesn’t feel flimsy & I like that! It’s a very important thing in foldable phones that they shouldn’t feel flimsy at all. So thumbs up for fit & finish.

Display - This is a narrow phone with a tall display. It has a 22:9 aspect ratio, a 6.7” sAMOLED FHD+ display with 120Hz fast refresh rate & has 1200 Nits of brightness. Even in the harsh outdoor sunlight , I don’t think you’d have problems while reading/viewing. There’s another secondary screen on the front. And it’s bigger compared to the previous generation. It’s now 1.9” in size & has become more useful for sure! It was 1.1” before.

Specifications - It’s based on the Qualcomm SD888 SoC, with 2 variants - 8+128GB (which we have) & 8+256GB (upper variant). Thankfully it’s price has now been reduced! The base variant(8+128GB) is priced at Rs 85K. And if you buy it on the HDFC debit card, you get a Rs 7K cashback. So it’s effective price is Rs 77-78K. So foldable phones are getting cheaper. Especially this one at Rs 77-78K.

Battery - It has a 3300mAh battery capacity which is less, but I’ve been using the Fold3 for 2-3 days, it has 2 big screens with a 4400mAh battery & I thought it won’t last for the whole day under my usage. But I was surprised that it had a battery for the whole day. the battery capacity is 3300mAh with 15W charging. And, it has wireless charging support as well as reverse wireless charging!

OS UI - It comes on OneUI 3.1 that’s based on Android 11. But there are some pre-installed apps & has a Flex mode which is very useful if you make video calls. Just keep it if you want to click photos/selfies easily. This 2nd screen is very beneficial for selfies, you can click photos using the main camera setup. But that flex mode, for camera/video calls, & even if you’re multitasking, you can keep 1 app above & another below. Not just Samsung default apps but you can shift 3rd party apps as well through Labs from the Settings. Meaning you can add YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc. in the Flex mode! It’s a useful feature. The secondary screen is a touch screen & you can place widgets on it. Like, controlling music (play/pause), see notifications, etc. The small screen is very useful for selfies as well. And there are built in apps like recorder, etc which you can use directly from it.

Camera - It has a 12MP+12MP dual camera setup on the back. There’s a 12MP primary sensor(OIS) & a 12MP ultrawide sensor (123 degree FOV). You get a 10MP selfie sensor in the center punch hole. I’m showing some sample photos on the screen. Like I said, we haven’t spent too much time(just a couple of hours). The prima facie first impression of photos are quite good! But do wait for the full review. You get all the features in the camera app - Single Take (flagship level Samsung feature) is there.

Multimedia - I was very surprised with it’s audio on the basis of its form factor. The audio is quite loud with good quality. And it has a tall screen so you’ll have fun watching wide videos. There are no top bands but instead, they’re on the sides.

Performance - I won’t be able to tell much but it has a SD888 SoC, with 6.5L AnTuTu score.

Gaming - You can play games on the highest settings & it did heat a bit. 

Sensors - You get all sensors with side mounted fingerprint sensor & face unlock that work well.

Connectivity - It has 5G, dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi calling support, Bluetooth 5.2, WiFi 6 & NFC as well.

Features - It comes with IP certification & is water resistant, it shouldn’t have problems with little water splashes. It has support for Camera2api along with Widevine L1 & SAR values are within limits. There are some nifty features, like tapping the power button twice to open the camera for a selfie. So there’s no need to unlock/open the phone as well. So these were my first impressions on the Galaxy Z Flip3.
