Are you a Flip or a Fold? The choice is yours

Both the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G and Galaxy Z Fold3 5G are on the cutting edge of smartphone innovation with folding technology that boosts productivity and fun while looking absolutely awesome. They come built with Armor Aluminum, Samsung’s strongest aluminum on a smartphone yet, and IPX8 water resistance3 so you don’t need to worry if it gets wet. Here are more of the best features of the Galaxy Z series.

Introducing the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

The display you’ve been waiting for. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is designed to help you talk, work and play using the power of Verizon 5G. The 6.2” Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display offers stunning graphics and unfolds to double in size, providing a 7.6” Infinity Flex Display with tablet-like viewing experience4. With a high-contrast ratio, super smooth adaptive 120 Hz refresh rate and blue-light management, it’s easy to view your work, stream your favorite shows or game any time of day and avoid unnecessary eye strain.

A totally covert camera. Do you want to see more of the screen with less distractions? The new Under Display Camera technology on the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G offers an uninterrupted view with a front-facing camera lens that’s hardly visible under the screen. How cool is that?

The perfect Multi-View Experience. Verizon also created its first original short film, in partnership with Simon Fuller, for the Multi-View Experience App, following animals from Discovery's Serengeti TV series as they flee a dramatic flooding event. Using the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, you can choose between five camera feeds of the Serengeti and seamlessly switch between angles.

For all your virtual business needs. Take your work-from-anywhere experience to a new level with cool multitasking features and a revolutionary S Pen designed for the foldable display5. Snap pics and videos with total freedom thanks to Flex Mode and even experience hands-free video calls so you can chat without taking a break from your tasks. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G can also handle long days right beside you, equipped with 25W Super Fast Charging so you never need to pause for a charge6. It’s perfect for the hybrid workforce.

Introducing the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

Designed to match your lifestyle. Coming for the first time to Verizon is the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, a smartphone that gives you access to the full power of Verizon 5G, but in a phone that folds down to fit just about anywhere. The beautiful, pocket-sized phone unfolds into a dazzling 6.7” immersive display that’s perfect for watching your favorite movies and video chatting with friends7. You can easily see your notifications on the 1.9” Super AMOLED Cover Screen, and even use Samsung Pay without having to open your device.

Freedom to see things your way. Flex Mode lets you snap photos and videos with total freedom and experience hands-free selfies from any angle. The intuitive camera captures studio-quality photos with Portrait Mode, and with Hyperlapse and Auto Framing you can confidently get the shot on the first try. Plus, Multi-Active Window makes it possible to use two apps at the same time, so you can get more done8.

The perfect mobile entertainment machines

Coupled with select Verizon Unlimited plans, both the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G let you experience your favorite games, movies and shows like never before. To make it easier to get in on the action, new and existing Verizon customers get six months of Google Play Pass on us with “Start” and “Do More” Unlimited plans, or 12 months on us with “Play More” or “Get More” Unlimited plans (Then, $4.99/mo after)9.
