Samsung just launched the Galaxy Z Flip, the vertically folding smartphone that adds more meaning to the niche folding smartphone category. The smartphone touches base on various premium aspects and it gets 200,000 guaranteed folds - something that needs to be put to test especially after the similarly-folding Moto Razr broke after just 27,000 folds. But that's a task for another day.
Now, let us take you through the Galaxy Z Flip, its features, specifications and more.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with a 21.9:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone's screen has an Infinity Flex Display with Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass and Eye Care Display concept to reduce strain on eyes without compromising colour.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip also features a tiny 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display alongside the dual cameras to show instant notifications and act as a cover display.
