Samsung’s leading the charge on foldables having launched their third-generation devices – the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 – while the competition is still watching how things pan out from a distance. We loved our time with the excellent Galaxy Z Fold 2, and while it wasn’t one of the best camera phones we’ve tested, it’s a cracking real-world example of what a folding future could look like. 

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Flip was a proof-of-concept clamshell that undercut much of the foldable competition. This time around, while the Galaxy Z Fold 3 costs the same as the Z Fold 2 – $1,799 / £1,599 / AU$2,499, but the Z Flip 3 is the first mainstream foldable to cost less than $1,000 with a starting price of $999 / £949 / AU$1,499 for the 128GB model. Both 5G phones are available to order immediately.
