During the Galaxy Unpacked last year, they have unveiled the first foldable smartphone in the world – the Samsung Galaxy Fold. And today, Samsung has unveiled a new foldable smartphone known as Galaxy Z Flip at the Galaxy Unpacked this year. This time, the foldable design is entirely different which now folds upside down.

For its display, it uses ultra-thin flexible glass, which has a higher hardness than the flexible screen covered by previous plastic materials. The body is available in purple, black and gold.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip also can be fold in several ways, thanks to the FreeStop technology. Multi tasking is also enabled where the display can be customized to show two application at once.
As for the specs, Samsung Z Flip is equipped with 855+ processor, 8GB + 256 GB storage combination, 3300mAh battery capacity with 15W fast charging and wireless fast charging functions.
And for its camera, the Galaxy Z Flip brings 12MP primary camera & 12MP wide angle lens & support Night Hyperlapse. There is also a 10MP front camera which can be used during Google Duo video call while supporting 8x digital zoom & OIS.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is priced at $ 1380 (about RM5702) and will be available on February 14th, and users will get YouTube Premium members for free after purchase.
