Galaxy Z Series Now Available for Pre-Order
Galaxy Z Fold3
The Galaxy Z Fold3 is Samsung’s flagship foldable device and thus has the Z series’ most powerful specifications. The smartphone is being powered by a Snapdragon 888 processor, and its cover screen at the front of the device now runs an adaptive 120Hz.
Samsung claims that the device has a screen size that accommodates up to three apps at once, and is a great fit for multitaskers.
For the first time ever on a foldable, Samsung has added S Pen support, so that you can jot down reminders directly on its 7.6-inch Main Screen. The device also includes IPX8 water resistance and an under-display selfie camera for its main screen.
Galaxy Z Flip3 5G
Sleeker and more compact, the Flip3 is the more affordable foldable option from Samsung.
The Galaxy Z Flip3’s camera features include a new Flex mode and its symmetrical design allows the device to stand upright.
The outer screen of the Z Flip 3 is now much bigger and has more utilities than its predecessors, with the main screen now upgraded to 120Hz instead of just 60Hz.
Enjoy easier ways to pay, play, and check your notifications fast on its larger cover screen, without ever flipping open your phone. Choosing the Galaxy Z Flip3 means getting more of what you crave, your way, whatever you’re doing, whether the device is open or closed. Galaxy Z Flip3 is more than a folding phone, it’s a statement.
Both of the devices are equipped with IPX8 water-resistance, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus screen covers, Armor Aluminium, an optimised panel layer, and an improved protective film.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G redemption periods begin from 17 September 2021.
The recommended retail price for Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is R37,999 and for Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is R21,999.
