Samsung announced Wednesday two new phones with folding screens, including a model that costs under $1,000 for the first time.
The $999 Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G and the $1,799 Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G look similar to other folding phones Samsung released in recent years. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is a small pocketable square that opens up to reveal a 6.7-inch screen inside. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is a skinny phone that opens like a book to reveal a tablet-sized 7.6-inch screen.
This also marks the first time Samsung brings its S Pen stylus to its folding phones. The more expensive Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G will support a special version of the pen. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also the first phone to launch in the U.S. with a camera that hides under the main display.
The external display is now four times larger than the last model and can show more information like your calendar, the weather, and more.
It has three cameras, including two on the back and one inside for selfies, and has some of the improved portrait mode pictures features first introduced in the latest Galaxy S21 phones.
Samsung will accept orders for the new phones beginning Wednesday and will ship them on Aug. 27.
