Samsung's third-generation foldable phones are slimmer, lighter, more durable, and more affordable. The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 both feature IPx8 water resistance as well as bodies crafted from a new "Armor Aluminum" material and Gorilla Glass Victus. The flexible displays inside use Samsung's Ultra Thin glass, but with updated protective layers that that are stronger and more durable. The displays now offer adaptive refresh up to 120 Hz, including on the cover display of the Z Fold3. The Z Flip3 now supports mmWave 5G, and has a 4x larger outer display. The Z Fold3 now supports Samsung's S Pen stylus. A standard S Pen for the Z Fold3 runs $50, while a new S Pen Pro for $100 supports other Samsung phones and supports remote-control and mid-air gesture features. The Z Fold3 also has Samsung's first under-display camera, on the main (inner) display. Both phones sport Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888 chip. The two phones are otherwise similar to their predecessors in design and features, including camera specs. The Galaxy Z Flip3 will come with 8 GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB storage, starting at $1,000. It will be offered in cream, green, lavender, and matte black. Samsung's web site will also offer it in pink, grey, and white. The Galaxy Z Fold3 will come with 12 GB RAM and 256 or 512 GB storage, starting at $1,800. It will come in green, silver, and black. Pre-orders for both phones start today, with full availability August 27th. Pre-order customers get a credit of $150–200 to spend with Samsung on accessories, etc. All three national US carriers will offer both phones. Verizon is offering a Samsung Fold Cover and S Pen bundle for free with the Fold3 "while supplies last".
