Samsung’s new foldable phone Galaxy Z Flip has been launched at the company’s Unpacked 2020 event in San Francisco alongside the Galaxy S20-series lineup. The device is a flip phone with a clamshell design like the Motorola’s foldable Razr phone and it has been priced at $1380, which translates to around Rs 98,000 on conversion.
Samsung has yet to confirm if it plans to bring the Galaxy Z Flip to the Indian market. However, since the company launched the Galaxy Fold in India, we expect the Z Flip to arrive in the country as well. The phone has been made available in three colours — Black, Purple and Golden. We are listing down the key specifications of the Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip specifications
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip smartphone features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with 21.9:9 aspect ratio, 2636×1080 pixels resolution, and a hole-punch notch like the Galaxy Note 10-series. The screen folds in half into a compact form factor to easily fit in the palm of your hands.
There is a tiny 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 300×112 pixels resolution at the back of the phone next to the dual-rear camera setup which can be used to take selfies when the phone is shut closed, show date, time, notifications, and caller ID.
