Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold3 is exactly as impossible to repair as you'd expect

Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold3 is exactly as impossible to repair as you'd expect

The Galaxy Z Fold3 is Samsung's latest shot at making a foldable smartphone and depending on who you ask, it's the best one to date. Not only is it equipped with the speedy Snapdragon 888 CPU, but you also get tangible improvements over its predecessor, like S Pen support and an under-screen front camera in the folding 7.6-inch display. We're really liking it so far. But of course, all of this comes at a cost: Galaxy foldables consistently come off as really hard to repair, and the Z Fold3 will be no exception, if this teardown is anything to go by.

Photo gallery: How annoying is the Galaxy Z Fold3's under-display camera?

Samsung had a lot to talk about at Unpacked today with two new phones, two new watches, and yet another pair of earbuds. Even with a packed schedule, Samsung made certain to point out the Galaxy Z Fold3 sports the first-ever under-display selfie camera in a foldable. However, the resolution of the OLED matrix over top of the camera is about a quarter of the surrounding screen. The results can look a bit weird, and Samsung's renders don't really do it justice. Here's what it looks like in real life.

The $1,800 Galaxy Z Fold3 doesn't come with a charger

The $1,800 Galaxy Z Fold3 doesn't come with a charger

How does a manufacturer fill a product box? Does it do so with the consumer in mind where everything required for a rich and full user experience is included? Or does frugal intent take over, nickeling and diming accessories like a wall adapter or a stylus in order to recoup margins missed by pricing your third series of foldable phones at their lowest prices yet? For the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Fold3, it seems Samsung is counting on the latter's resulting wow factor beyond all else as its leading motive.

Meet the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3: The crown jewel and the new mainstream

Samsung has christened its third generation of mobile phones with folding displays. The debut of the Galaxy Z Fold3 phablet also comes support for an S Pen for the first time in the series while the clamshell-styled Flip3 brings plenty of flexing display surface for the lowest price offered yet, at least from this company. This refresh also introduces an even clearer divide in sorting out what type of consumer is meant to buy which device.

When you see these Galaxy Z Flip3 renders at the phone shop, remember this article

High suspicion hangs in the hazy summer air for new Galaxy Z foldable phones from Samsung on August 11. The first glimpse we caught of the Z Flip3 back in May appeared to give us some panda-esque hints in the design department.

Check out Samsung's next clamshell foldable in all these glorious colors

We're quickly approaching Samsung's usual late-summer slot for announcing new flagship devices, but this year, it's the Galaxy Z-series we're expecting to see instead of a Note refresh. Both the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 passed through the FCC last week, revealing stylus support for the latter. However, if you've been waiting to see what the next clamshell foldable from Samsung would look like, new renders have leaked that show the phone from all angles.

One of the big problems with folding phones may finally have a fix

One of the big problems with folding phones may finally have a fix

Since their inception, durability has been a pressing issue for foldable devices, as evidenced by the launch problems that plagued the original Galaxy Fold. The Z Flip and Z Fold2 represented a significant leap in build quality, refining the design and greatly improving the hinge mechanism. But even with those changes, there was still the conspicuous absence of any IP rating; it's much harder to waterproof something with moving parts, after all. Thankfully, Samsung may have found a way to bring some level of ingress protection to the upcoming Z Flip2 and Z Fold3.
