What is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip?
It is a 73.6 x 87.4 x 17.3mm x 183g
folding phone that opens to reveal a 6.7”, 2360 x 1080 Dynamic AMOLED display.
It is no slouch under the bonnet either with a Qualcomm 855+ SoC, 8/256GB (no microSD) and a surprisingly good dual 12MP+12MP camera. Add to that Samsung Wireless Fast Charge and PowerShare, and it’s a fully-fledged phone.
The hinge allows open (180°), Flex mode (90°) and down to 40°.
While I don’t want to compare the Motorola Razr (information here) to the Galaxy Z Flip, the specification differences are huge! The Galaxy Flip fits nicely into Samsung’s Galaxy Class with things like a 7nm processor, bigger battery with Wireless and Fast Charge, OIS camera and more. A Galaxy user will be happy with the Z Flip. The price, $2199, it slices the Razr’s price too.
