Flip Phones Are Making A Comeback, Thanks To Samsung’s New Galaxy Z Flip!

Did we just go back in time or are flip phones making a comeback?

Samsung just unveiled its first-ever foldable glass-display smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip! (yes, you read that right.)

Unlike our old flip phones, the new and improved Galaxy Z Flip has engineered the first-of-its-kind foldable glass which features a 6.7-inch display that folds into a stylish and compact form that fits right in the palm of your hand. Designed with an innovative Hideaway Hinge and custom-built UX, Galaxy Z Flip offers a whole new mobile experience unlike any other.

“At Samsung, we were encouraged by the excitement for the Galaxy Fold. Galaxy Z Flip is an important next step as we look to build the foldable category by bringing to consumers a new form factor, new display and most importantly, a new kind of mobile experience,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics.

“With Galaxy Z Flip’s unique foldable design and user experience, we’re redefining what a mobile device can be, and what it enables consumers to do,” he added.

The new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the result of fashion meets technology with its sleek design and cool features. Not only does it folds into the size of a wallet so you can easily fit it in your pocket or bag, the Infinity Flex Display made with Samsung’s proprietary bendable Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG), gives a premium look and feel that has never been seen with a foldable device before.

With Samsung’s first-ever 21.9:9 ratio display, you can also enjoy cinema-like quality content while the Galaxy Z Flip’s Hideaway Hinge ensures smooth and stability with every flip and is designed to open at a range of angles, just like a laptop screen!

The Galaxy Flip Z promises its users to do more, hands-free! Its flex mode allows for the phone’s display to automatically split into two 4-inch screens so you can easily view your content on the top half of the display and control them on the bottom half. When it’s free-standing, its game-changing camera literally stands on its own so that you can capture more, on-the-go, the Galaxy Flip Z is sure to be the new “It” phone for years to come.

The Galaxy Z Flip will be available in limited quantities in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black, starting in selected markets including the U.S. and Korea on February 14, 2020, followed by Mirror Gold in select countries.
