With a lower price, 120Hz refresh-rate screen, an “aluminum armor” body and an improved cover screen and flip! Everyone is talking about a new flip phone. Maybe the new Samsung is the right choice for you. It is a special phone. When we think of old flip phones, we can only miss the strong closure because we will not do that now.

Design and features
Matte colors leave a serious and universal impression, there are fewer fingerprints – and the choice of this year’s colors is good. The aluminum frame of the phone is still there, the front is plastic and the back is glass, which has also been upgraded with Gorilla Glass Victus. We now have an IPX8 water resistance certificate. The phone is available in four colors.
You can leave your phone open at almost any angle without showing a tendency to be fully open or closed. The hinge of the phone has been significantly improved and allows us some specific ways to use this phone. There aren’t many flexible screen phones on the market, but the ability to make a video call while the phone is on the table while you’re doing something completely different really seems acceptable to all those who often use this type of communication. You can watch some YouTube videos on the upper part of the screen, which is in the folded position, and in the lower part, you can normally type messages with friends.
The right power button with fingerprint sensor sound buttons, on the left, is the nano-SIM card. If you want two connections on the phone – the other must be eSIM. There is no space for memory cards. Below, two microphones, Type C and a speaker. This Phone has stereo speakers.
Now the secondary screen for notifications has been increased and is usable – Super AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 1.9 inches and a resolution of 260×512 pixels. Great progress in the usability of the selfie camera, the use of the main camera of this phone to take selfies while the phone is in the closed position.
Last year’s Dynamic AMOLED main flexible screen was replaced by a 2x version with a refresh rate of 120Hz and brightness of as much as 1200 nits at maximum. Screen scratch resistance has been improved by as much as 80 percent this year, and the fold line can still be felt under the fingers and seen when viewed from an angle. The diagonal of the screen remained the same 6.7 inches.
Hardware of this phone is powerful Snapdragon 888 combined with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of fast UFS 3.1 storage memory.
Samsung Galaxy Flip 3 has a 3300 mAh battery. Charging 15W, but supports wireless charging and reversible charging of another device. Unfortunately, the battery is not so powerful.
Main Camera Dual 12 MP f/1.8, 27mm (wide) with 12 MP, f/2.2, 123˚(ultrawide) and LED flash. Video 4K@30/60fps, 1080p@60/240fps, 720p@960fps, HDR10+. Selfie camera 10 MP, f/2.4, 26mm (wide) and video 4K@30fps.The cameras are solid.
