It is easy to take for granted that our premium-designed smartphones just work as expected, and won't fall apart like some cheap gadget picked up from the clearance bin at the local thrift shop. And for the most part, they do dutifully operate to expectations. It takes a lot of design chops and testing to achieve the kind of durability necessary for daily use, and providing a rare glimpse of what goes into the latter, Samsung has partially lifted the curtain to reveal some of its testing procedures. Companies don't often provide behind-the-scene looks at how the sausage is made. Or in this case, how it is deemed ready for public consumption. Samsung chose the perfect time to make an exception,... Read more...
It’s been a mixed year for Samsung when it comes to smartphone sales. The company launched the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra in January 2021, but sales have been lackluster. According to research from Counterpoint Research, Galaxy S21 family sales were down 20 percent through its first six months compared to the Galaxy S20, making it the slowest-selling release since the Galaxy S5 in 2014. However, things are looking more positive for Samsung regarding its Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3. These are Samsung’s third-generation folding smartphones, and early reports already indicated that the devices came charging out of the starting gate. Now, a new report from The... Read more...
It took a few generations, but the folding smartphone form factor has come into its own and appears to be drawing greater interest. One could argue that it has achieved mainstream status. It just depends on if the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 sales momentum in Samsung's native land can carry over to other territories. These are fine handsets, even if they are not perfect. In our Galaxy Z Fold 3 review, we noted there is a visible crease down the center of the main display, which can either be a non-issue or somewhat distracting, depending on how it is being utilized, and the user. Battery life in our testing was only so-so, and it's an expensive phone. But otherwise, the form factor works... Read more...
Samsung recently launched its third-generation foldable smartphones – the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the Galaxy Z Fold 3 -- and they’re very impressive. The cheapest of the two is the Galaxy Z Flip 3, priced from $999 compared to the $1,449 launch price of its predecessor. Even though the smartphone has only been on the market for a few weeks, Amazon is already discounting the Galaxy Z Flip 3 by a fair amount. Amazon’s discount comes in at $75, which takes the smartphone down to just $924.99 with free shipping. The discounted pricing is available for Phantom Black, Lavender, Cream, and Green colors.

It looks as though Samsung has a hit on its hands with its latest folding Android smartphones: the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3. As their names imply, these are third-generation folding phones. Hence they bring a bevy of functionality and usability benefits over their predecessors. Most importantly, pricing is trending down for the smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is $200 cheaper than its predecessor (now starting at $1,799), while the Galaxy Z Flip 3 has dropped a staggering $450 to just $999. According to The Korea Herald, home market preorders for the two smartphones combined reached 450,000 units as of Sunday. However, according to industry sources, that figure could top 800,000...

In just a little over a week from now, Samsung will unveil a handful of new devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Flip 3, and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic. There may not be a whole lot in the way of surprises, though. That is because the leaks and rumors scene surrounding the upcoming launches has been especially active, with the latest chatter centered on pricing. Of course, we will have to wait for Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event for official confirmation on pricing. That will take place on August 11, 2021. Ahead of the event, however, notorious leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter) has posted what pricing will look like in Europe. As expected, the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Flip...

Earlier this month, we brought you a lengthy preview of Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event, which will take place next month. At the time, the rumors indicated that the event would take place on August 11th, and tonight, Samsung confirmed that date and a start time of 11 am ET. This will be one of Samsung's biggest launch events in recent memory, with multiple smartphones, smartwatches, and earbuds on the agenda.

We all know that Samsung is planning an Unpacked event for this summer to announce its latest crop of consumer electronics devices. Over the past few weeks, we've seen some substantial leaks of the Galaxy Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

These GIFs show the devices from every possible angle in multiple colors. Galaxy Z Fold 3 The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is perhaps the most stunning device that will launch with its large folding display and tall/skinny cover display.

A week ago, official renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 leaked onto the internet from a familiar source (Evan Blass). Unfortunately, while we could see the former from the front and the back, the latter was only visible from the back while in the closed position. Well, today, Blass is back at it again with 360-degree views of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 in three different colors: Gold, Purple, and Grey. The same basic design present with the first two generations of the "Flip" is still here with the Galaxy Z Flip 3. That means that this is a rather tall smartphone that folds in half, making it a much more portable device to fit in your pocket. There appears to be a selfie... Read more...
We've discussed leaks about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 for months. The current generation Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G are perhaps the most high-profile folding smartphones on the planet, so their successors are highly anticipated. Luckily for us, we've just been presented with the first official renders of the smartphones. We are confident that these are official because they come from none other than gadget leaker Evan Blass. And if Blass is going to take the time to tweet an image, you know that his sourcing is ironclad. Looking at the first image, we see the Galaxy Z Fold 3 from the front and the back. From the front, we can see that the bezels around the folding... Read more...
The inevitable Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will soon be upon us from Samsung. Samsung launched its second-generation folding smartphones last year, and this year's crop of third-generation devices is highly anticipated. Images of both the Galaxy Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 have appeared in what looks to be leaked marketing materials from Samsung. While the photos look like they were taken with a potato phone that had Vaseline smeared on its lens, we do get a relatively good look at the rear camera module for the Galaxy Z Flip 3 with three sensors arranged vertically. Galaxy Z Fold 3 But the rear cameras aren't the most exciting thing here; the marketing materials confirm that the Galaxy Z Fold... Read more...
