Galaxy Z Fold 3 Features

With the absence of the Galaxy Note 21, Note fans will appreciate S Pen support in this foldable. In an exciting move, Samsung began letting non-Note devices use the S Pen starting with the Galaxy S21, and now it's arrived with the Fold 3. However, the phone doesn't have a dedicated S Pen slot, the pen only works on the main screen, and it's sold separately.

Here are some other notable features:

  • No-notch, under-display camera.
  • Water resistant with an IPX8 rating.
  • Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and a strong, lightweight Armor Aluminum frame.
  • The phone stands upright on its own.
