Samsung has announced its successors to the Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip smartphone range. The company has also made it clear that the Note range is no longer a thing as the Fold devices are meant to take the phablet’s replacement. Samsung also claims that both the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G devices include a stronger display that is 80% more durable than the previous models.

In addition, they are both IPX8 water-resistant. This means you can put them into the water for up to 30 minutes at 1.5 meters. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 have also seen some refinement from the software point of view. This means the foldable displays work better with Android and the technology built into the device.

Samsung did not release a Galaxy Flip 2 but the company is skipping the name completely. Instead, the new device is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and acts as the cheaper, smaller model in the Fold range. The device also boasts improved durability on the display but the biggest new feature is the 1.9-inch display on the outside of the device.

This little display acts as a selfie mirror and notification panel. Users can view their messages without opening the phone and answer calls.
