We’ve been big Galaxy Note fans since the first one came out in 2011. This year though, Samsung sets aside the Note to focus on it’s new foldable phones: The Galaxy Z Fold3 and the Z Flip 3.

The most compelling device was, of course, the Z Fold3. All of its screens have 120Hz refresh rates and supports the S Pen. It’s built with Gorilla Glass Victus for improved screen protection and IPX8 for water resistance.
The internal selfie camera is hidden underneath the screen. So you can watch, take notes, swipe left, without that selfie camera, we’ve all learned to ignore, staring at us.
Under the hood, we weren’t surprised that Samsung has gone all out. I don’t think anyone would ever assume Samsung didn’t put top of the line specs into the Z Fold3 (otherwise, that would have been the real headlines). 12GB of RAM, 256/512GB internal storage, an octa-core processor, and a ton of cameras. The outer selfie has 10MP, the internal selfie has 4MP, and the triplets at the back all sport 12MP each.

Me, personally, have always been a big fan of the Z Flip ever since it was first launched many lifetimes ago. It’s a modern and stylish throwback of the flip phone era. It has 8 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage. It has two external 12MP cameras and you will notice that entire space is black. It’s actually a screen that shows you notifications or gives you quick access to some apps like Spotify. This way you won’t need to flip open the phone just to check if you’ve got any important messages.

Samsung also announced the new Buds 2 the Galaxy Watch 4, building on top of their previous versions with sleeker designs and improved specs sheet. The previous Galaxy Buds blew away expectations with it’s impressive quality. So our expectations for the Buds 2 are really high.
