Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: Meet Samsung’s New Flip Phone

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Series wasn’t the only smartphone announced, as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip also made its debut at the Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco.

Now, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip isn’t the company’s first foldable phone. There was the Samsung Galaxy Folder Series as well as the newer Samsung Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Z Flip however, is a mixture of both. It has a clamshell form factor, but still has an actual foldable display.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor, paired with 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of internal storage. Powering the device is a 3,300mAh battery that supports the Wireless PowerShare feature. It also does have fast charging on both wired and wireless modes.

Unfolding the Galaxy Z Flip, it features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex display. It is protected by a layer of bendable Ultra Thin Glass, which is a proprietary material from Samsung. When it’s closed, the front has a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display that shows notifications. It also acts as a viewfinder when taking selfies with the phone’s main camera. On the rear, it features a dual camera setup consisting of:

  • 12MP f/1.8 Dual Pixel main sensor
  • 12MP ultra-wide angle f/2.4 sensor
  • 10MP f/2.4 in-display camera sensor

The thing that concerns most users would be the hinge of a foldable phone. Naturally, Samsung took the opportunity to assure everyone of their worries with the Hideaway Hinge. It packs a dual CAM mechanism to ensure smoothness, as well as nylon fibres to protect the hinge from dirt and dust. Samsung also claimed that the Galaxy Z Flip is able to withstand up to 200,000 times of folding and unfolding. To put that into context, if you were to fold and unfold your phone for 100 times/day, it should be able to last up to five years.

Pricing and Availability
