Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3: Flipkart Big Savings Day Sale Offer
The Galaxy Z Flip3 is now available on Flipkart for Rs 49,925 with a massive Rs 20,000+ price drop. However, the device is not eligible for any card offers apart from the 5% cashback on Flipkart Axis Bank Card. With this credit card, you can get a cashback of Rs 2,497 which brings down the effective price to 47,428.
On the other hand, the 256GB variant with 8GB of RAM is available for Rs 88,999, which is actually the selling price of the device on Flipkart. The Z Flip3 will be available in two colour options 一 Cream and Phantom Black.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3: Specifications
The Galaxy Z Flip3 sports a 6.7-inch 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED Infinity main display with Full HD+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. There is also an outer display that measures 1.9 inches. This is also an AMOLED screen and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Powering the device is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC with 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB UFS 3.1 storage. This SoC is paired with Adreno 660 GPU to handle graphics and gaming content. The device has already received the Android 13 update based on OneUI 5.0.
In the camera department, the Z Flip3 features a dual-rear camera setup that includes a 12MP primary shooter with OIS support. It gets paired with a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens. The phone relies on a 10MP front shooter for selfies. The phone is equipped with a rather small 3,300mAh battery unit with support for 15W fast charging support and there is also support for 10W wireless charging and 4.5W reverse wireless charging. It has a Type-C charging port and features an IPX8 rating which makes it water-resistant. The handset also offers a stereo speaker setup with Dolby Atmos audio.
It weighs 183 grams. Connectivity options of the device include Dual-SIM (one eSIM), 5G, WiFi 802.11 ax, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and GPS.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3: Should You Buy at Rs 49,999?
Flipkart has already confirmed the availability of the phone at Rs 49,999, the price is extremely attractive for those who are planning to experience the foldable for the first time. The phone’s performance will hold up well as it is powered by a flagship Snapdragon 888 SoC and the same goes for displays as well.
However, the major concern will be the battery life as the device is backed by a pretty average 3,300mAh battery. On the bright side, in terms of software, the device will get 4 years of software updates, which means, even if you buy the device now, you will get updates till August 2025, which is a good thing.
At the end of the day, the Galaxy Z Flip3 will be a good device to own for those who want a foldable device under Rs 50,000 but are ready to compromise in terms of battery life and also slow charging speed.
