The Z Fold 3 supports usage of an S-Pen, has a bigger display area on the screen and also has a versatile multi-window experience, which enables customers to multitask while using the phone.
Z Flip3, is an upgrade, which combines the portability and flexibility of a smartphone with the power and screen size of a tablet for ultimate productivity.
Managing Director, Samsung Electronics Nigeria, Danny Kim said Samsung will always maintain the culture of delighting its customers with revolutionary devices designed to meet diverse needs.
He said: “In the development of the new devices, we’ve covered all the basics of both technology and functionality. Users of these phones will have so much fun with them. For instance, on ZFold3, they will be able to use one screen for a virtual meeting, while working with the S-Pen on the other screen. The camera function is exemplary and transitioning on it is easy and seamless”.

Over the years, customers have been worried about the cost for the replacement of broken screens and repairs for Samsung phones but we have done something very important about it.

Subscribing to this service contract helps to reduce the cost by more than 80 percent for repairs done on Samsung phones,” he added.
