Samsung unveiled its second fold-off-screen smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, at the Unpacked launch, despite some setbacks on the screen hinges of its first-generation Galaxy Fold, released last year. It has a flip-flop design similar to the Moto Razr (2019) but claims to withstand more than 200,000 flips. Media have previously conducted violent tests on Samsung Galaxy Fold and Moto Razr (2019) through dedicated machines, withno official figures.

Of course, the violence test is very different from the actual use of the user. Even by the average number of times a day, users may have been tired of changing the machine long before the phone’s structure failed.
The Galaxy Z Flip will go on sale on February 14 for $1,380 (9608 RMB).
Given Samsung’s confidence to shout such high numbers, it is clear that the company has also made a number of enhancements to the structure of the new aircraft. Whether the Galaxy Z Flip’s screen hinges are more durable than the Galaxy Fold remains to be seen.
