The new Galaxy Z Fold 3 was showcased to the world at Samsung Unpacked. It is the third generation of this new category of devices that you can use both as a phone and as a tablet.

This time, Samsung didn’t change a lot with the Fold 3. There are minor refinements here and there to make the device feel better on the hand, be more durable, and appeal to more audiences.

However, it still remains a very expensive device. The Galaxy Z Flip 3 is the one to get at a lower price point.


Samsung says the device will be available in Kenya from September. There will be a preorder period, with gifts for successful orders. The official pricing will be announced once it is available. However, Samsung says the 512GB model will be around KES 220,000 while the 256GB model will be around KES 210,000.
