Samsung Unpacks Version 3.0 Folding Smartphone
Folding phones are back and here to stay. At last week’s virtual Unpacked Event, Samsung debuted two new Galaxy smartwatches, wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Galaxy Z Fold3.
Galaxy Z Fold3
A whopping $200 cheaper than version 2.0, the Galaxy Z Fold3 is still a luxury purchase with a tablet-sized 7.6-inch unfolded screen. Even when folded, it rivals other large smartphone displays with a closed display of 6.2-inches. The Z Fold3 is expected to begin arriving on August 27 and will cost you $1,800.
Galaxy Z Flip3
A successful recycle of an early 2000’s design, the Galaxy Z Flip3 and its 6.7-inch display actually rival the similar size screen of the 12 Pro Max. Plus you can flip the screen down to a compact 3×3-inch square that will fit neatly in your pants pocket. The Z Flip3 is expected to begin arriving on August 27 and will only cost you $1,000.
The latest smartwatch from Samsung is better than ever before. The Galaxy Watch4 comes with significantly improved health tracking and an overall sleek design. If you’re in the market for a smartwatch that isn’t the Apple Watch, you may have found your winner.
The original Galaxy Buds were a hit, and Samsung has made some minor improvements to make them even better. A subtle design and active noise cancellation for a relatively affordable cost of $149.
The Official End of the Galaxy Note
Samsung announced last winter that the popular Note series was going away, signaling the end of an era. Fans of the Galaxy S Pen shouldn’t worry, because Samsung has made the Galaxy Fold3 compatible with the S Pen. Exciting days are still ahead for the phablet size smartphone market.
