Spec-by-spec comparison of the Samsung foldable, Fold 3, Fold 2, and Fold 1

Samsung introduced its third generation of foldable phones at Samsung Unpacked in South Korea this month. The new versions are more durable and cost-effective than previous generations. Samsung unveiled the Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3 during its third event of the year, which are currently available for presale but will be released on Aug, 27. This blog reflects our review on Samsung fold 1 vs fold 2 vs fold 3.

In terms of pricing, though, the Fold 3 is the most costly phone Samsung has introduced this year. The Fold 3 starts at $1,800 in the United States, which is $200 less than the Fold 2’s debut pricing. 256GB Z Fold 3 will cost £1,599 in the UK and $2,499 in Australia. The launch price of the Z Flip 3 was lowered by approximately $400.

To make its foldable phone more robust, Samsung used stronger materials and ensured it had some degree of waterproofing. Frame and hinge are made of the strongest metal ever utilized on a Galaxy phone, as well as Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus, the hardest glass available. As for water resistance, Fold 3 has been rated with an IPX8 grade. This grade is based on a 30-minute submersion in fresh water up to 1.5 meters deep. It’s important to note that the gadget is not dust-tight.

Fold 3’s most notable new feature is S Pen compatibility, which brings Samsung’s Note-style stylus to a foldable phone for the first time. Unfurling the screen, Samsung claims, allows you to view audiovisual material on the top of the screen while using the S pen on the bottom half of the screen allows you to make notes.

S Pen Fold Edition and S Pen Pro 12 are the two possibilities for the S Pen for Z Fold 3. To preserve the Z Fold 3’s primary screen, Samsung says each stylus has a specifically developed retractable tip with “force restriction technology.” An additional camera was installed beneath the primary screen so that users may watch their content without being distracted.
