Samsung introduces new flip and fold
Samsung is taking a big step towards making folding-screen smartphones mainstream with the launch of a pair of the first water-resistant models as part of its big tech event for the second half of 2021.
The new and improved Galaxy Z Flip3 folding-screen flip-phone and Z Fold3 folding phone-tablet hybrid were announced on Wednesday during a livestreamed event, alongside a Google watch co-developed in an attempt to take on the dominant Apple watch.

As flip phones, the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 are multifunctional workhorses that put entertainment front and center. The flippables allow for streaming movies, gaming, and watching videos on half of the screen while you take notes with Samsung’s S Pen or do other tasks like checking emails on the other, making it convenient for those who prefer multitasking with a show or movie in the background. Viewers who prefer projecting their smartphone screen onto TVs can also use Smart View, Samsung’s screen-mirroring system, to cast shows or movies playing on the smartphone onto a TV.
