The Galaxy fold to me has always felt like what the Galaxy note should have been, owing to its prowess with more screen estate. Having the note discontinued and giving the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G the S-Pen support shows Samsung might just have the same thought.
Unlike rendition which felt more natural on the Galaxy Note, the Z fold 3 doesn’t have a cavity to store the S-Pen. In fact, the S-pen is an added accessory you can purchase for your unit.
Prolly feature models of the Galaxy Fold will have a stowaway for the S-Pen, in view of making usage more seamless.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G may not be a tank-like rugged smartphone, but it does add an extra measure to make it less fragile when compared to its predecessor.
This year, Samsung has introduced an IPX8 water rating to the Galaxy fold. This rating indicates the Fold 3 is capable of withstanding water coming from all sides, which means you sort of have one less thing to worry about when using your unit.
Using the on-paper specs as a reference shows the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G cameras aren’t really a very substantial upgrade over what we had on the Fold 2. A lot of the cameras are actually a reminisce.
The rear camera comprises a 12MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8, a 12MP telephoto camera with an aperture of f/2.4, and a 12MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and a 123˚ field of view. Putting all these cameras together shows we have a rear camera setup reminisced from the Fold 2.
In the selfie department, we have a 10MP punch-hole camera with an aperture of f/2.2, which is the same as seen on for former. While the camera inside the fold takes things up a notch by not just offer more pixels at 16MP but also being an under-display camera as discussed earlier. This camera has an aperture of f/1.8.
Having a high-performance smartphone isn’t really as exciting as it uses to be in my opinion, is pretty much very easy to predict specs these days. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G seems to be wrapped in this web.
We have top-notch specs as expected. The chief of the performance facilitators is its Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor which is a more powerful processor when compared to the Snapdragon 865+ processor on the Z fold 2.
Also on the performance train, the Adreno 660 GPU, 12GB RAM, option for either 256GB or 512GB internal storage, and a non-removable 4400mAh battery which is slightly smaller than the 4500mAh battery on the former.
What’s more, we have 25W fast wired charging, 11W wireless charging, and 4.5 reversed wireless charging.
