Switching to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G? Here are a bunch of amazing features to enjoy

Samsung’s foldable devices have received outstanding reviews for their unique design different from the usual candy bar phones. Forbes, PCMag, and The Guardian praised the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G for its design, pocketability, and durability. 

But apart from these, there are a bunch of other features to enjoy when upgrading to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G:

Hassle-Free Switching

Moving to the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G from another OS isn't hard with Smart Switch. The app works with many devices to make the upgrade to a Galaxy smartphone seamless. Simply download the app to start the transfer. Then, make a device-to-device connection wirelessly or with the USB-C adapter provided in-box, or use a backup file from external storage.

Just recently, Samsung has also introduced a seamless process of backing up files through WhatsApp Transfer. A first on any Android device, the feature securely transfers chat history and photos, on the platform, from an old device to a Samsung device. It also migrates the user’s account information, profile photo, and settings, excluding call histories.

Superb Camera with Unique Features

Capture moments at any time of the day without worrying about the resolution of photos and videos. Galaxy smartphones have Night Mode, ensuring quality snaps and clips even when shot in a low-light situation. 

Can't decide whether to snap photos or record videos? With Single Take, users can get up to 14 different image and video styles, angles, and formats, by just long-pressing the shutter once and moving around a bit while shooting. 

Those who will get their own Galaxy Z Flip3 5G can enjoy the newest Quick Shot feature. This allows users to take selfies with the dual rear camera without unfolding the device. The Cover Screen will give a preview while taking a snap, unfolding a new way to snap pictures. Simply hit the volume button on the side to trigger the shutter.

Through Flex Mode, users can capture photos and videos hands-free with the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G. When the phone is partially opened, users can wave their palms to the screen or say “capture” to automatically snap images without clicking on the shutter. 

Redefined productivity 

Another functionality that makes Galaxy smartphones distinctive from other candy bar phones is the Multi-Active Window function. This feature enhances users’ productivity by allowing them to do things simultaneously like checking their schedules while reading emails and navigating to the location of a meetup while talking to friends on messenger, among other things.

Design to express uniqueness

Apart from its iconic folding design, the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G features an expanded range of options to help express their unique personalities and preferences. The devices are available in Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black colorways.

In addition, the legacy of decorating the front of the device with stickers continues with Galaxy Z Flip3 5G as users can now customize and display their favorite pictures or wallpapers on the new large Cover Screen.  Users who want an even more unique device experience can further curate their stylish smartphone through the wide selection of case accessories available, including clear, leather, silicon straps, and ring grips.

Next-level security with Knox

The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G has the Knox Security platform that protects data, especially when it comes to app permissions. This is augmented by the Samsung Knox Vault, a defense-grade security platform that protects sensitive data like PINs and passwords from malware and malicious threats.

Unmatched durability

The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G gives users peace of mind with its durable build. Samsung crafted the device's body with Armor Aluminum and the tempered Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™, which make the device less susceptible to damage, including bends and dents. The phone is also safe from splashes of rain and accidental spills as it has an IPX8 water-resistance rating. 

Ready to make the switch? The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is available at Php 52,990 SRP for the 128GB variant and Php 56,990 SRP for the 256GB variant in Samsung Experience Stores and Authorized Stores nationwide, Samsung online partners, and telco partners with exciting promos and freebies! 

Trade-in a smartphone to get bigger discounts 

Trade-in an old device to get additional Php 8,000 worth of tokens for the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G on top of the traded-in device. 

Starting November 1, customers will also have the option to trade in their device to get discounts worth up to Php 13,999, which includes a 1 year FREE Samsung Care+ worth Php 9,499, plus tokens worth up to Php 4,500 on top of the traded-in device. 

Unfold the benefits of upgrading to Samsung’s latest devices. For more information about these premium devices, visit samsung.com/ph.

Safe Samsung Shopping

Health and safety protocols are strictly followed in Samsung Experience Stores to keep consumers and employees safe. Adhering to the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, Samsung has limited the number of its customers to 50% capacity, implemented the mandatory use of face masks and face shields, and performs frequent sanitation in all stores. 

Samsung Experience Stores also has unique QR health declaration codes to promote a safe and contactless contact tracing process. Product demonstrations are done side-by-side instead of face-to-face while keeping the required safe distance of one (1) meter to make sure everyone is socially distanced.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the mobile ecosystem acted as a lifeline for people, businesses, and society. The industry demonstrated its resilience, and we must now continue to push the boundaries of possibility. The purpose of the APAC 5G Industry Community is to unlock the power of 5G connectivity so that people, industries and society thrive.
