- Samsung has sold out its entire stock of the Galaxy Z Flip in India.
- The Galaxy Z Flip costs Rs 1,09,999 and comes in only a single variant.
- The Galaxy Z Flip competes with the Motorola Razr.
Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip has been making splashes around the world and India is also a part of the hype belt. The Galaxy Z Flip has been launched in India along with the entire Galaxy S20 series phones and Samsung is selling at a much more affordable price point than the older Galaxy Fold. Despite being the most premium offering from Samsung, it is among the most affordable folding phones you can buy today. Apparently, Samsung is selling it like hotcakes in India.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has just gone through its second round of sales in India and unexpectedly, it sold out within an hour. Samsung says that the pre-booking for the Galaxy Z Flip lasted only for an hour and the company managed to sell its entire stock in the second sale. Samsung has been hosting the pre-booking via its online store and its offline stores for the Galaxy Z Flip.
Samsung says the deliveries of the Galaxy Z Flip will begin from March 2 and those who purchased the phone via the Samsung online store will be given a premium white glove delivery service. The Galaxy Z Flip is after all one of the most expensive phones Samsung sells in India. It is also the only phone from the folding phone category in India that's right now on sale.
To make it a special experience for buyers, Samsung is offering a few premium services with the Galaxy Z Flip. The Galaxy Z Flip comes with accidental damage coverage, which includes one-time screen protection and a 24X7 Dedicated Call Center Support for Indian customers.
The Galaxy Z Flip competes directly with the Motorola Razr and it has a sort of upper edge when it comes to specifications and overall desirability, with the major factor being the lower price. You get a clamshell-like design with a 6.7-inch display that folds in half - this makes it easy to carry when you aren't using the phone. As with all Samsung phones, the Z Flip uses Samsung's Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display with HDR 10+ colours. Unlike other folding phones, the Z Flip has an ultra-thin glass on its main display that Samsung says is more resistant to damage.
As for specifications, the Z Flip uses last year's Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset that's paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. The phone relies on a 3300mAh battery that brings support for 15W fast charging. It even gets a dual 12-megapixel camera setup on the outside and a 10-megapixel camera on the inside for video calls and selfies. The Galaxy Z Flip is also one of the most stylish looking phones you can buy this year.
