Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip flies off shelves on first day

The Galaxy Z Flip is available in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black. By the end of 2019, Australians only saw one foldable phone, and it wasn't cheap, either.

Samsung's foldables up until now have been a single fold in the middle of the screen.

That's one interpretation of what foldable phones could be, but it's not the only one out there.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip uses the industry's first ultrathin glass cover on top of the OLED screen, making it more durable and scratch-resistant compared with plastic displays.

Samsung unveiled four of their highly anticipated smartphones devices earlier this week including the new Samsung Z Flip foldable smartphone.

I have no idea what Samsung's press deal is with the Galaxy Z Flip.

"The Galaxy Z Flip display size is a 6.7" when unfurled, and we doubt it will be easy to find many users who care enough that it folds into a 3" phone size.

Meanwhile, the priciest of the three - Galaxy S20 Pro - features a massive 6.9-inch QHD+ display, 128/512GB storage, 12/16GB RAM, 40MP front-facing camera, 5000mAh battery, ad a quad-camera setup on the rear comprising of a 12MP ultra-wide lens, a 108MP wide-angle lens, a 48MP telephoto lens, and a ToF sensor. It's the form-factor that should get your entire attention, with a special design that makes it a big phone that can snap into your pocket, and yet still keeps some of those niceties we like in phones today, such as fingerprint security, facial recognition, mobile payment support, and wireless charging. The Galaxy Z Flip goes on sale February 14, retailing at $1,380. The phones also take advantage of 5G which allows for hyperFast speeds.

When Galaxy Z Flip unfolds, it can stay open at virtually any angle, unlocking opportunities for selfies that show more of the world around you and expressive video chats with Google Duo - all hands-free. If the renders are in fact accurate, we may well be seeing a red variant of the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus in the near future.
