Folding Smartphones are returning with grandeur. As a new soldier in this race, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip tries to steal the show with top-notch technology in minimal structure. Targeting Valentine’s Day, Samsung released this hotshot on 14th February 2020 in the U.S. and Korea. This second-generation Galaxy Flip aims to overcome the limitations of its predecessor. Let’s see what it really does offer.
The first look of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will remind you of the old saying ‘small is beautiful’. In the folding state, Z flip features a compact design (87.4 x 73.6 x 17.3 mm). This flip phone is highly portable, consuming limited room in your pouch/pocket. Not to mention, the premium look of this trendy folding Smartphone.
In a folding state, Z Flip turns into half size. This high-end flip Smartphone shows you some information, like date, time, battery life, message, etc. on its exterior screen. You don’t need to flip out the phone to take a selfie. However, it needs some extra pressure to flip out this Smartphone with one hand, which might be uncomfortable for some users.
Smooth Glass Display
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip edges out the Motorola Razr by its Gorilla 6 glass built front glass. You can swipe its 6.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen up and down with superb comfort. Moreover, Z Flip is great for watching movies by virtue of its mind-blowing image quality – 1080 x 2636 pixels resolution with 425 PPI density.
Each flip smartphone bears an unavoidable crease where it folds. However, you can barely define its crease unless you look from an angle. The manufacturer has shown state-of-art design efficiency to make the creaseless discernible in flat mode offering a continuous display.
Samsung claims that Galaxy Z Flip has Fiber Guards inside the hinge, which will prevent dust and debris from entering through the tiny holes. Unlike usual folding phones, Z Flip is blessed with a three-step hinge structure. This hinge allows you to unfold this Smartphone through halfway or lying fully flat. This clever design makes Z Flip highly user-friendly.
Amazing Flex Mode
The most fascinating fact about Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is that in the folded state the display divides into two segments. This technology is termed as Flex Mode Software. Taking benefit of this design, you can open the hinge half-way and place this Smartphone over a surface resembling a palm-size laptop.
What is more? The Flex Mode technology has taken video calling to a new height. You will love the hand-free video calling option bending the front screen through halfway. Unlike the linear phones, in Galaxy Z Flip you can see both yourself and the person from the other end in an equal size window.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has two rear-end cameras. One camera has a 12-megapixel sensor. The other camera is tagged with Ultra-wide features bearing a 12-megapixel sensor. Using this camera you can take a 120-degree wide field of view. Zooming in and out you can capture panoramic views.
Galaxy Z Flip has a 10-megapixel selfie camera on its front screen. Samsung always emphasizes on standard image quality. Z Flip holds this legacy. However, the overall camera features of Z Flip may not fascinate you as the competitors, like Samsung Galaxy S20 5G are offering even better cameras for lower price tags.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip shook the world with massive internal storage. Its 256 GB memory features almost double the capacity compared with Galaxy S20. Adding to this, Galaxy Z Flip is backed up with an 8 GB RAM which enables this gear to run any high-end software smoothly. Though Z Flip has no additional slot for memory expansion, its in-built memory is enough to store files, software, and games.
This cool gear is equipped with Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855 plus Processor with Octa-core CPU. The Android 10 operating system makes Z Flip fast and compatible to run the latest apps and software. You can play the up-to-date video games utilizing it's powerful 700 Mhz GPU Adreno 640.
Samsung’s latest folding Smartphone Z Flip’s 3300 mAh battery fall might disappoint you. But don’t worry! Its 15W fast wireless charging will save you time. The quick finger-print sensor will save both your time and privacy. In simple words, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip combines cutting edge technology with amazing design efficiency.
