Samsung phone screen and design

Due to the folding format, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has two screens. The external display has a 1.9-inch Super AMOLED panel, made for the user to apply some simpler commands and be able to view the device’s notifications.
When unfolding the phone, we have the main display in Full HD+ resolution of 6.7 inches in Dynamic AMOLED Dynamic 2X, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, which guarantees greater fluidity, especially in games and video reproductions.
The design of the Samsung foldable draws attention for its elegance, even with the thickest edges. It is worth noting that the device also works when it is partially folded and it is possible to display a video at the top, while other controls are shown at the bottom. To start the device, the fingerprint reader is located on the side of the device.
The phone when it is closed is portable for those looking to save space in their purse or backpack, for example. However, those who carry the cell phone in their pocket may have difficulty adapting to the Galaxy Z Flip 3, since when closed, it is 16 mm thick, almost 10 mm more than when it is closed.
There are four color options in the country: cream, green, violet and black.
The photographic system of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has features for the user to use the cameras with the smartphone folded, semi-folded or open. There are three cameras in total, distributed as follows:
- Main camera: 12 MP (f/1.8)
- Ultra wide: 12 MP (f/2.2)
- Front camera: 10 MP (f/2.4)

The rear cameras are arranged vertically and have capture features like Flex Mode for hands-free photos. When the smartphone is closed, the user can use Quick Shot by pressing the volume button on the side of the device, which will show a preview of the image on the external screen. Video recordings are in 4K.
Galaxy Z Flip 3 is available with an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G processor, which has a maximum speed of up to 2.84GHz and a minimum speed of 1.8GHz. The chip is considered high performance and the smartphone still works with Adreno 660 video card (GPU) together with 8 GB of RAM.
The phone has 128GB or 256GB storage. The Z Flip 3 does not have a microSD memory card slot, making it impossible to expand the space to store data. The Flip is compatible with the 5G network, which begins to be implemented in Brazil in 2022.
The battery is not as powerful as those presented in cell phones of various categories, including intermediate ones, perhaps because of the small size that the device reaches when it is folded. With 3,300 mAh, the Flip can be taken to the charger a few times, depending on the user’s handling intensity. When it comes to recovering power, the phone supports 15W fast charging, 10W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging.
Like other South Korean phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 does not come with the charger in the box. Consumers who purchase Galaxy line phones can order the item for free on a special website. Redemption can be requested within 30 days from the issuance of the invoice and delivery will be made to the consumer’s address.
