Samsung officially brought its second folding-screen smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, to the Unpacked launch on February 11. Compared to the original Galaxy Fold, it has been replaced with a flip-flop design and ultra-thin glass (UTG) exterior screen similar to the Moto Razr (2019). But the $1,380 (9620 RMB) price is clearly well above most consumers’ purchase budgets.

The Galaxy Z Flip features a 6.7-inch Infinity Flex display, complemented by bendable UTG-protected glass, and a Hideaway hinge that can withstand 200,000 openings and closings, and enhances the user experience in many ways.
If you don’t have a good budget, or don’t plan to replace your Android/iOS device right away, swap your phone’s desktop with the Galaxy Z Flip official wallpaper.

Highlights of the Galaxy Z Flip include support for multiple open angles for a selfie experience that showcases more of the surrounding environment, and integrated Google Duo video calling.
When placed, the device automatically splits into two -part (4-inch) screen areas, making it easy for users to view content such as photos or videos in the upper half and provide controls in the bottom half.
This feature is especially useful when watching YouTube videos and map navigation, reading instructions, and commenting. Of course, this can not be separated from Google’s official deep cooperation and support at the system software level.
