GALAXY Z FLIP

Featuring the first-ever foldable glass display, Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip smartphone “bends the laws of physics” (and probably your budget) with its unique form factor, supported by a custom Flex mode user interface, designed by Google.

When the device is free-standing, the display automatically splits into two 4-inch screens so you can easily view images, contents or videos on the top half of the display, and control them on the bottom half. Easily watch and navigate YouTube – stream on the top while searching for other videos, reading descriptions and writing comments on the bottom.

The device also includes a 1.1-inch mini-screen on the front, so you can view notifications when the phone is closed or use it as a viewfinder for the camera. It’s expected to launch locally on 22 February.
