Samsung is hosting its Unpacked 2020 event, and the company has unveiled its second foldable device -- the Galaxy Z Flip. The foldable smartphone acts as Samsung’s another step in the foldable smartphone world and tries to fulfil the company’s ‘foldable’ dream. Read on to know more about the new Galaxy Z Flip smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Design
Starting with the design, the Galaxy Z Flip carries a clamshell design, much like the Motorola Moto Razr, which is also its direct competitor. The foldable smartphone (with Ultra-THin Glass) folds horizontally and comes with a hinge, which calls for convenient folding and unfolding. The hinge enables the 'Flex Mode' so that you can use the device like a laptop in different angles. The hinge is expected to contribute to the durability of the Samsung foldable device, which posed as a big problem with the Galaxy Fold launched last year.
The smartphone expands into a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display when unfolded and becomes a compact one when folded.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Features, Specifications
The foldable smartphone also has a small 1.06-inch display, which is visible when the device is folded. The small display is mainly meant to show notifications. It has dual rear cameras and a 10MP front camera.
It comes with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and a 3,300mAh battery. The foldable smartphone supports Bixby and Wireless PowerShare feature.
Additionally, the Galaxy Z Flip has a special Thom Browne Edition (in collaboration with fashion designer Thom Browne), which includes the Thom Browne-mandatory stripped Z Fip, Galaxy Buds+, and the Galaxy Active 2 smartwatch. More details will be announced tomorrow at the New York Fashion Week.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Price, Availability
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip comes with a price tag of $1,340 (around Rs. 95,600) and will be up for grabs, starting February 14. The smartphone will be available in three colour variants - Mirror Purple, Mirror Black and Mirror Gold.
