Following multiple rumours that Samsung has another foldable phone in the pipeline, the company has officially announced its second attempt at a foldable device, the Galaxy Z Flip, at its “Unpacked” event held last night in San Francisco.
Just like the rumours had predicted, the phone spots a clamshell-like design, such that, when the phone is closed, it looks like a small square, and when it opens up, it spots a pretty massive 6.7-inch display.
Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Flip will not have a full display on the outside. Instead, Samsung has opted to use a 1.1-inch OLED cover display that can show users notifications when closed. The secondary display also acts as a viewfinder for the camera.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by a 64-bit octa-core processor along with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 10MP f/2.4 selfie camera, and a dual-camera setup which combines a 12MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP wide-angle camera.
In terms of pricing, the Galaxy Z Flip is priced at $1,380 (N501,632.76) and will be available for purchase in the US and Korea on the 14th of February.
