Samsung unveils foldable Galaxy Z Flip
Feb. 12, 2020
It's time to bring back the days of dramatically hanging up calls with a flip of the phone.
Samsung Electronics, which introduced the Galaxy Fold last year, has unveiled its latest phone for the foldable generation: the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
The Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung's first-ever phone to have a foldable glass display, giving customers a nostalgic feeling of using flip phones from previous decades.
This new device rivals the Motorola Razr that Motorola released in November 2019.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has a bold and stylish design that veers away from the current touchscreen design of existing smartphones. The display of the Z Flip measures 6.7 inches and it folds into a compact phone that can fit into the palm of a user or their pockets.
The glass that Samsung fitted in this device is the Infinity Flex Display, coupled with Samsung’s proprietary bendable Ultra Thin Glass for that slim, sleek and premium look.
Hardware-wise, the Z Flip has a Hideaway Hinge that makes it look like the phone does not have a hinge in between the display. The display ratio fo the Z Flip is 21.9:9. The phone can open at a range of angles just like a laptop screen.
Samsung hinted that the Z Flip is the first in the line of foldable phones in the new Z series.
In terms of the camera, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip can record videos with a 16:9 ratio. It can also capture timed group shots to vivid nighttime content. The camera can take stunning Night Hyperlapse videos or vivid low light shots with Night mode without the need for flash.
The Z Flip also offers multi-tasking capabilities with a Multi-Active Window that users can drag and drop apps into.
"With Galaxy Z Flip’s unique foldable design and user experience, we’re redefining what a mobile device can be, and what it enables consumers to do," Samsung Electronics President and Head of Mobile Communications Business Dr. TM Roh said in a statement.
The Galaxy Z Flip will be available in limited quantities in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black starting in the U.S. and Korea this Friday, February 14. Samsung said it will also launch a Mirror Gold variant in select countries.
