Samsung has been releasing foldables for a while now.
The new Z Fold3 is a marked departure from its two earlier siblings. It is slowly and surely becoming mature and introduces three new features that mark its seriousness in the foldable space.
The package is now water-resistant, an engineering feat owing to the phone’s many moving parts.
It also now supports the S-Pen, and Samsung has a separate, newer S-Pen just for the phone. However, there is no silo for it, unless you purchase a separate case for it.
The front camera is hidden under the display, so it makes the screen use uninterrupted after years of enduring notches.
Notable developments, right?
And have we mentioned that we are only getting S888 versions in Kenya, finally? We do not know what happened because the EMEA market has always been graced by Exynos variants.
