Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Is A Less Expensive Foldable Phone

It’s been long rumoured (and a video of the device even leaked online some time ago), but Samsung has officially revealed the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. It’s releasing later this week in America, but we don’t have a release date or price in Australia just yet. It’s $1,380 USD (which puts it somewhere near the $2000 AUD mark). It’ll come in black and purple at release.

It’s completely different to the previously released Galaxy Fold in the sense that it’s a clamshell design that flips open. It’s designed to fit in your pocket, but then opens up to reveal a stunning 6.7 inch FHD+ AMOLED display that’s got a larger screen than the average phone.

The design is completely different to the Fold as well in the sense that the inner display is coated in a foldable Ultra-Thin Glass, which should make it way more durable than other foldables that use plastic displays.

On the outside of a screen is a 1-inch screen. This can show you the time, who’s calling you and any other notifications so you don’t have to keep opening the phone in order to check what’s going on. You can also open the phone half way, to have it act as a clamshell sort of device.

The phone isn’t as powerful as the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S20 range (more info on those devices here). It has a Snapdragon 855+ processor, 128gb of storage and 8GB of ram. It has a two-piece 3,300 mAh battery. 

The camera situation is a dual-camera setup with two 12MP sensors (one with an ultrawide lens), so not as impressive as the S20 range, but nothing to turn your nose up at either.

Samsung’s 2020 lineup has something for everyone and they’ve taken it up a notch in everything from perfecting a lot of these features, and their ads are next level.
