Arguably the star of the show, Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Fold 3. The third-generation phone with a foldable display that opens like a book to convert into a tablet from a standard smartphone-like design now works with Samsung's S Pen stylus.
In order to make the S Pen work with the Fold 3, Samsung created two new S Pen models. Both feature a tip that moves as you apply pressure when writing or drawing on the screen, preventing any damage. The S Pen is an optional accessory for the Z Fold 3 and one that Samsung is hoping attracts business and enterprise users. To be clear, the S Pen only works on the main display, not the cover display.
For the first time, the Z Fold 3 has an IPX8 water resistance rating. That means you can submerge the phone in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes, and it should still work. Samsung played a really neat video detailing how the company protected the Z Fold 3 from water.
The cover screen has a 6.2inch display, and it opens up to a 7.6inch display that folds. One of the more notable features that are worth pointing out is an under-display camera in the main display. You can't see it, according to Samsung, when you use the phone.
Samsung also updated its own apps for the main screen, giving them a two-column approach that puts more information on the screen. There's also a new taskbar that keeps your favorite apps at your fingertips.
The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is available to preorder today and officially launches on August 27. It starts at $1799 for 256GB of storage and 12GB of memory -- Double the storage for $1899.
Now it's time for Samsung to detail the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
