TELUS Smartphones

A wide selection of all the latest TELUS phones are on display, including the most recent Samsung devices. Along with the Flip 3, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also available for users that may be looking for a larger display. In this article, we’ll be exploring deeper into what the Galaxy Z Flip has to offer.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 – Features and Specs

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, which folds out into a tablet sized screen, the Flip 3 is a mini sized smartphone that folds out to offer a regular sized screen. 

Compact Design

One of the most distinguished features of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the compact and portable design it delivers. When the phone is open it provides a typical size display of your average smartphone measuring in at 6.7 inches. However, when in the folded position, the phone literally cuts its size in half for optimal portability. While folding the phone does double the thickness, the device is still ideal for fitting into small pockets and compartments. The Flip 3 is also much easier to grip and handle when in folded mode, making it simple to get in and out of pockets.

Design & Display Specs

  • 6.7” AMOLED display (unfolded)
  • Resolution – 1080 x 2640 pixels
  • 1.9” cover display (260 x 512 pixels)
  • Size
    • Unfolded – 166 x 72.2 x 6.9 (mm)
    • Folded – 86.4 x 72.2 x 15.9-17.1 (mm)
  • Lightweight aluminum frame
  • Gorilla Glass Victus protection
  • IPX8 water resistance

Easy Handling

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 not only offers incredibly convenient portability, but also comfortable and effortless handling. The average smartphone is quite thin and slippery making it a bit awkward to negotiate in and out of pockets. Also, because of this thin design users generally hold the phone using two fingers, one on each side of the device. This does not really provide the best stability or optimal manipulation. However, the Flip 3 can be folded into an array of positions making it easy to grip firmly in the palm with all five fingers.

The ability to fold the phone into various positions offers a number of other practical uses. This makes it easy to sit the phone folded on a surface with the inside display still visible. In the half-folded mode, the screen can be split in two, using one half for settings and the other half for viewing. This also provides an extra firm grip when capturing images or video.

Cover Display

The cover display is located on the outside of the phone for added convenience. This makes it easy to check the time, battery power, and notifications without having to open the phone. The cover screen can also be used to take selfies without unfolding the device.
