Samsung’s already known foldable phone got an official treatment today. The company announced the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked 2020 in San Francisco.
The Galaxy Z Flip features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED main display, and a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED cover display for the foldable shell. The cover display comes handy while performing quick actions such as accepting or declining calls.
Powering the Z Flip is a Snapdragon 855+ processor coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The battery here is a 3,300mAh unit. Camera-wise, it has got 12-megapixel wide and ultra-wide angle lenses as primary shooter, and a 10-megapixel selfie camera.
According to Samsung, the device can fold and unfold 200,000 times without damaging the glass screen. Samsung claims to have developed an ultra-thin glass that can bend without shattering, while protecting against scratches.
The Z Flip comes with One UI atop Android 10. Samsung has added a new Flex Mode that comes into play when the device is placed at a 90-degree angle. While in Flex Mode, the upper screen is used for viewing purpose, and the lower screen for interaction.
Available in Mirror Black, Mirror Gold and Mirror Purple, the handset will be made in “limited quantities.” It’ll be available to purchase starting February 14 at a $1,380 price point.
