Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Specification, Price and Availability

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a new foldable smartphone that was rcenetly announced, and it almost stole the spotlight from the Galaxy S20 series. It is the second phone with a proper foldable display that will be coming from the stables of Samsung.

This time around, the new foldable smartphone employs a largely different spin on the foldable formula. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold which unfolded to a tablet-sized screen, the Galaxy Z Flip is a regular sized phone that folds to a tiny size.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Features

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is built around a super tall 22:9, 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED display. Unlike all foldable screen phones so far, the Z Flip employs Ultra Thin Glass layer on top, this makes it to be far more resistant to scratches.

The resolution of the screen is 1080 x 2636 pixel, which is just over 50% more pixels that its closest rival – the Motorola Razr. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip also has a 1.1 inch secondary Super AMOLED positioned on the back of its cover, which makes it easy for users to see notifications at a glance. It sits below a sheet of Gorilla Glass 6 along with the rest of the phone’s outer body.

Under the hood, you have last year’s Snapdragon 855+ flagship chipset as opposed to the 2020 Snapdragon 865 Silicone, and the phone has 4G connectivity only. The Galaxy Z Flip also has only one memory variant – 8GB/256GB, but it makes use of the latest UFS 3.0 storage.

The main cameras on the outside of the Galaxy Z Flip uses Samsung’s 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and relatively big 1.4µm pixels. It’s joined by an ultrawide unit of the same 12MP resolution but with smaller sensor and slower F/2.2 aperture.

The company is making a big deal about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’s internal camera. Its 10MP resolution and f/2.4 are actually a step behind even the Galaxy S10 family, but the phone can be folded at a bunch of different angles and laid flat on a table for an entirely new take on video calls or self-recording.

The Galaxy Z Flip is powered by a 3300mAh battery, but charging speeds are limited to 15W. Other noteworthy features include a set of stereo loudspeakers tuned by AKG, wireless charging and Android 10 with One UI 2.0 out of the box.
