Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 runs on One UI, based on Android 11. It features a 6.7-inch primary Full-HD + screen (1,080×2,640 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex Display with adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, aspect ratio 22: 9, and pixel density of 425ppi. Although it comes with a better pixel count, the primary screen size is identical to last year’s model. The phone also has a larger 1.9-inch cover screen with a resolution of 260×512 pixels and a pixel density of 302ppi. The Galaxy Z Flip had a 1.1-inch screen with 112×300 pixels and a pixel density of 303ppi.
Samsung has provided a 5nm octa-core SoC in the Galaxy Z Flip 3, with a maximum clock speed of 2.84GHz. Like the Galaxy Z Fold 3, you can also expect it to be Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. The SoC is paired with 8GB of RAM as standard.
In terms of optics, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 has a dual rear camera setup that carries a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f / 1.8 wide-angle lens and OIS, along with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide shooter. The phone also comes with a 10-megapixel selfie camera on its foldable screen, with an f / 2.4 lens. Overall, the camera setup on the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is quite similar to what we had on the Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with 128GB and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Connectivity options include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS / A-GPS, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.

Samsung has provided a 3,300mAh dual-cell battery in the Galaxy Z Flip 3. It supports 15W fast charging and is compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0. The phone also supports wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. It measures 72.2×86.4×17.1mm when folded and 72.2×166.0x6.9mm when unfolded. This shows that you will get a slightly thinner build than the Galaxy Z Flip, 17.3mm thick when folded and 7.2mm thick when unfolded. However, the weight of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is identical to that of the Galaxy Z Flip as they are both 183 grams.
