Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: official with UTG display and Snapdragon 855+
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was introduced along with the Galaxy S20 series and was missing out on stealing the show. It is the second foldable screen phone for the company. This time, however, the phone folds vertically, as opposed to the Galaxy Fold, which folds horizontally like a book. The Z Flip is a full-size phone that folds down to a small size instead of the Galaxy Fold, which is a tablet-turned-phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is built around a very large screen with a 22: 9 aspect ratio and 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED size. For the first time on a foldable phone we have an ultra-thin layer of glass (Ultra Thin Glass) at the top of the screen to make it much more scratch resistant. The resolution is 1080 x 2636, which adds up to just over 50% more pixels than its nearest competitor – the Motorola Razr. The Galaxy Z Flip also features a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED secondary display mounted on its back mobile so you can see your alerts at a glance. It's under a sheet of Gorilla Glass 6 along with the rest of the phone's outer body.
Inside, you'll find the previous premium SoC Snapdragon 855+, as opposed to the Snapdragon 865's Galaxy S20 series. The mobile only comes in 4G. The only memory version is 8GB / 256GB, but uses the new UFS 3.0 storage technology.

The main camera on the outside of the phone uses a Samsung 12MP f / 1.8 aperture sensor and relatively large 1.4mm pixels. It is powered by a high-angle camera with the same 12MP resolution but with a smaller sensor and a larger f / 2.2 aperture.
Samsung has added a built-in 10MP f / 2.4 aperture selfie camera for which it made a great presentation. Although not technologically great, the phone can be folded in a series of different degrees or laid flat on a table for new ideas in the slots of selfies.
The Galaxy Z Flip has a 3,300 mAh battery. Unfortunately it does not support fast charging, limited to 15W.
Other notable features include a set of AKG tuned stereo speakers, wireless charging, and Android 10 with One UI 2.0. The Galaxy Z Flip is available from February 14 starting at $ 1,380 / € 1,500 in Mirror Black and Mirror Purple and Mirror Gold.
