It folds into a compact footprint. On the side, a fingerprint scanner is embedded inside the frame. The device is protected with Gorilla Glass Victus and IPX8 water resistance. Plus, the frame sports Armor Aluminum. 

The cover display on the back has grown 4x in size. It’s a 1.9” SuperAMOLED panel that can show notification alerts, a selfie viewfinder, and widgets. Flip the Galaxy Z Flip3 open to find a tall 22:9 Dynamic Flex AMOLED display. It’s a 6.7” panel that delivers a Full HD resolution at an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 

The Galaxy Buds 2 are here to replace the Galaxy Buds Plus. But they follow the design language of the Galaxy Buds Pro but featuring a lighter design. The Buds 2 support active noise cancellation; the ambient sound can be selectively filtered if you need to be aware of your surroundings. Samsung promises crisp, clear notes and deep lows.

In contrast to the Galaxy Buds Plus, the battery life of the Galaxy Buds 2 takes a hit. The Buds 2 can last five hours of uninterrupted playback with active noise cancellation turned on. When ANC is off, the TWS earbuds deliver 7.5 hours of playback. The case keeps the Buds 2 alive for up to 29 hours between charges.

The Galaxy Buds 2 are offered soft colors — dark gray, white, purple, and green. Plus, you get mild IPX2 resistance. They’re available in select markets, starting from $149.99 (~ Rs. 24,500.)
