Galaxy Z Fold 3: What's different?

Foldable Phones
Speaker 1: There's a new galaxy fold. Let's talk about the biggest differences between the Z fold three, the fold two and the original fold. Speaker 1: I'm not gonna give you a rundown of every single thing. That's different about three generations. If you wanna see that, check this out, you can pause the video, take screenshots and read away. Or you can go to cnn.com and see that info in non-video form. We're just gonna be talking about the most important changes. [00:00:30] First up durability, Samsung took on durability concerns. Head on with the new fold. The fold three is the first fold with water resistance. It has an it P X eight rating, meaning it can be submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes and survive. Samsung gave a lot of details on how that was possible. Each half of the fold three is waterproof. The hinge was treated to resist water as well. The other folds are not IP rated at all. None [00:01:00] of the folds, the one, two or three are dust proof. Speaker 1: Samsung says that the fold threes frame and hinge are made using the strongest aluminum used on a galaxy phone. The fold three also has gorilla glass Victus on the entire outside, which is the tough is glass by Corning. The fold two uses Victus on the front, but gorilla glass six on the back. And do you we'll be testing all of Samsung's durability claims. In another video, the fold three brings Spen compatibility to the fold line for the [00:01:30] first time. That's partially due to the redesigned Spen for the fold three and a more durable inner screen. Samsung says the fold three's main screen panel is 80% more durable than the fold. How durable was the inner screen on the original fold? Let's not talk about that. The inner screens on the fold three and two are both 7.6 inches. The original fold had a 7.3 in screen. Speaker 1: You can't talk about the inner screens without talking about the front facing camera. [00:02:00] In the first generation, there was this massive cutout on the top, right housing, two front facing cameras. The fold two went with a more understated whole punch design with a single 10 megapixel shooter. The fold three features, Samsung's four megapixel under display camera. It's supposed to give you a more seamless experience when you're in tablet mode, from what we've seen the under display camera area to does not look as good as the rest of the display. That would be because it has a lower pixel density in that area, but [00:02:30] it is what it is. Samsung says that the fold three S inner screen is 29% brighter than the fold. Two. The fold three brings 120 Hertz refresh rates to both its inner and cover screens. The fold two had 120 in the screen. Speaker 1: 60 on the outside, there was no 120 Hertz option for the original fold. Speaking of that cover screen, the fold two and three both feature a 6.2 inch outer screen. The original fold had that weird 4.6 Cher. Let's talk about the brains [00:03:00] of the folds. The original fold ran on a Qualcomm snap, 8 55, which had LTE built in. Then there was also a 5g variant, the Z fold two used a snap, 8 65 with a separate 5g mode. The three has a snap dragon 8 88, which builds in the 5g modem right into the system on usually when modems are built into an SOC power efficiency goes up. We'll be testing that out soon. The fold three comes in two storage options, 256 gigs or [00:03:30] 512. The two only offered one configuration of 2 56. The original packed in 512 gigs. The new is the lightest. One of them, all it weighs in at a trim 271 grams. Speaker 1: The fold two is 282 grams. The oldest fold 276 grams. And then there's the lower launch price. The original fold cost of $1,980 when it was introduced, the full two was 1999. The fold three launched at the starting [00:04:00] price of 1799. Those are the major changes when it comes to all the folds. Don't forget to check out our hands on thoughts on the fold. Three. I've gotta say the galaxy fold three looks very impressive. Samsung has really revised the design well over the past several years is the fold three something you're gonna pick up. Let me know. I'm a as Zach turn, I'll see you online. I still see you. Hi, [00:04:30] what what's what's for dinner. We're not having dinner. All right.
