Samsung unveils Galaxy Z Flip – Pricing and specifications

Samsung revealed its new Galaxy Z Flip foldable smartphone at its Unpacked 2020 event in San Francisco.

Unlike Samsung’s previous Galaxy Fold device, the Galaxy Z Flip sports a clamshell folding design with the main display folding along the horizontal axis.

This gives the device a much smaller form factor when closed, where notifications and other information is displayed on a smaller display on the outside of the device.

The device’s operating system is optimised for its unique form factor, offering a number of tailored camera and notification features.

Samsung has also implemented its “Infinity Flex Display” technology on its latest foldable smartphone, a significant upgrade from the plastic displays used on the previous-generation Galaxy Fold.

“As the world’s first foldable glass smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip’s revolutionary form factor opens up a whole new world of mobile experiences, and gives you even more options to express yourself,” Samsung said.

“Compact and portable when folded, the Galaxy Z Flip features an innovative freestop folding system that enables the device to stay open at a range of angles, giving you a never-before-seen mobile experience.”

Hardware and pricing

The device sports a main 6.7-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2,636 x 1,080 and a smaller 1.06-inch 300 x 116 panel on the back.

In terms of internal hardware, the Z Flip will ship with a Snapdragon 855+ processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and a 3,300mAh battery.

The main rear camera features two 12MP lenses – one wide and one ultra-wide. The front of the Z Flip sports a punch-hole 10MP camera with autofocus.

The device has a dual battery which delivers a total capacity of 3,300mAh.

Samsung said the Galaxy Z Flip would be available in three colours – Mirror Purple, Mirror Black, and Mirror Gold.

The Galaxy Z Flip will be priced from $1,380 and will be available on 14 February 2020.
