Over the past two years, we’ve heard various claims that foldable next-generation smartphones would illustrate a new frontier for the handheld medium. While many have tried (and even failed) to secure the industry’s top spot, Samsung has been on a quest to create the world’s first marketable and functional folding device. Now, their resilience has paid off with the Galaxy Z Flip.
Unveiled Tuesday, the Galaxy Z Flip handheld boasts the company’s innovative Freestop folding system, which allows users to utilize the mobile device from a variety of different angles and orientations. Thanks to Samsung’s proprietary Ultra-Thin Glass (or UTG), the phone’s Infinity Flex Display promises to seamlessly transition into a multimedia hub focused on today’s most prominent quality-of-life services, including selfie and video capture, playback, and hands-free use. The Galaxy Z Flip arrives with a sharp and surreal 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display, 2636×1080 resolution, 64-bit Octa-Core processor, 256 gigabytes of internal storage, and a plethora of sensors for intuitive use. A front and (dual) rear camera — which boast both 10- and 12-megapixel capture, respectively — adorn the phone’s sleek exterior.
