Design and Screen

Users agreed that it is much stronger and they have less fear of breakage. The phone is a bit narrower and it is also made of aluminum.

The front screen is 6.2” in size, has a 120Hz refresh rate. The inner screen is made of plastic, but it is still bright and sharp enough. The place of bending is quite imperceptible when using the phone. There are three cameras behind and everything is made of aluminum. Fold 3 has an external and internal, main, screen. As for the cover screen, it consists of a 6.2" HD + Dynamic Amoled, with a resolution of 2268 x 832.
