Samsung Launches New Foldable Smartphone – Samsung Galaxy Z flip
Aside from launching the new Galaxy S line at their Unpacked 2020 event, they also unveiled a new foldable phone; the Galaxy Z Flip.
During Samsung’s Unpacked 2020 event, they just launched the new Galaxy S20, S20+, and S20 Ultra. But they also unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip, their new foldable smartphone.

The Z Flip is exactly as it is named, a smartphone reminiscent to the old flip phones. The device folds just like its predecessor the Galaxy Fold. The main difference is the Z Flip folds horizontally from a standard smartphone size, to a size of a compact. Its 6.7-inch display will automatically split into two 4-inch screens, which they call “Flex mode”. You can also drag and drop multiple apps either at the bottom or the top screen for multitasking.
When closed, you can find a very small window in the bottom corner near the rear cameras. That is actually a small display which shows the time, date, battery life, and notifications.
Samsung has also equipped the Z Flip with a 12MP ultrawide and 12MP wide dual rear camera setup, as well as a 10MP selfie cam. What it lacks though is 5G functionality.
