Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: Features
The biggest highlight of the Galaxy Z Flip is its 6.7-inch foldable display, and the fact it is the first phone on the planet to use foldable glass instead of plastic to secure the display on the foldable device. The Z Flip is also the second attempt at launching a foldable phone from Samsung.
However, it is very different from the Galaxy Fold that was brought to the market last year. The new foldable device comes with a Moto Razr like clamshell design.
It also cuts down on the cameras, and excesses in hardware that were seen with Samsung's first foldable smartphone.
