The front/selfie camera remains unchanged and features a 10MP sensor with an f/2.4 lens. Interestingly, the larger cover display will let you capture selfies with the main camera.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 is backed by a 3,300mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging. On the durability front, the Z Flip 3 gets Corning Gorilla Glass Victus and Armor Aluminium frame. As rumored earlier, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 accessories include a whole range of metal rings and leather straps.
