After launching the Galaxy Fold last year, Samsung has launched its second foldable smartphone at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The foldable smartphone is named as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. Samsung’s both foldable smartphones have different designs, but the price is pretty much the same.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is priced at $1380, which is pretty expensive. It comes in two color variants – Mirror Black and Mirror Purple. However, some selected markets will also get the Mirror Gold color variant.
Talking about the design, the Galaxy Z Flip has a 6.7-inch Full-HD hole-punch display covered with Ultra-Thin Glass. Samsung has designed this smartphone in a way that you can use it in three ways.
The first one is the closed mode – in this mode, you can use the smartphone when it is closed. You can operate the smartphone by using the 1.1 Super AMOLED display on the back, which has a resolution of 112×300 pixels and a PPI of 303.
The second mode is the open mode – in this mode, the smartphone can be opened to users in a simple way like you use your daily phone.
The third mode is the Flex Mode – in this mode, you can stop the display at any angle you want just like you adjust the screen of a laptop. Samsung calls it the Infinity Flex display. The upper part of the smartphone can play a YouTube video, and the lower part can show the chat or comment section related to the video.
Speaking about the camera, there is a dual rear camera setup on the Samsung Z Flip. It has a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/1.8 and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/2.2. On the front, there is a 10-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.4.
Talking about the specifications, the Samsung Z Flip packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor bundled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. The fingerprint scanner is located on the right-side frame of the upper part of the smartphone. The Galaxy Z Flip sports a 3300mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging. The UI is One UI 2, which is based on Android 10.
The Galaxy Z Flip will be available for purchase starting this Friday, February 14. A Thom Browne Limited Edition will be unveiled today in New York, February 12, at the New York Fashion Week. The smartphone will come with a free YouTube premium subscription and will also include a set of AKG USB Type-C earphones and a case in the box.
