Samsung is undoubtedly the leader when it comes to foldable devices, after having launched the initial Fold a couple of years ago, and following it up with the Z Flip and Z Fold 2 and more recently the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
Foldable handsets have become increasingly abundant in the market, becoming a product that was once scarce to one that is now on offer in two or three different variants.
These vary from the standard book-like fold, or the flip, which is reminiscent of the flip phones of the past. LG and Microsoft’s dual-screen handset is also a take on foldable devices.
Recently, the Korean giant launched the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 across the world, with the pricing and availability for India having been revealed a couple of days later.
What set the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 apart was the presence of water resistance on both foldables, a first for consumer foldables, allowing for better protection on flagship-grade handsets.
A new report mentions that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3, currently on offer in Phantom Black and Green Hues and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, on offer in Cream and Phantom Black will be launched in India with a new colour variant.
As per Ishan Agarwal, Samsung will be launching the 256GB variant of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 in Phantom Silver, whilst the Z Flip 3 with 128GB of storage will be offered in a new Lavender hue.
This is in a bid to offer more options for the Indian variants of the two foldable handsets from the Korean giant.
