Remember how novel it was to answer calls with just a single flip? Or the look on everyone’s faces when you whipped out that bedazzled pink clamshell mobile, made iconic by the one and only Carrie Bradshaw? If you’re aching for a trip down memory lane, brace yourself for the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
During its heyday, the flip phone was much loved. Yet the rise of e-commerce, and not to mention the need to stay connected on social media, all dictate that the convenience of a smartphone is no longer a luxury.
Enter the groundbreaking foldable smartphone, where Samsung has achieved what was once unthinkable with the Galaxy Z Flip, a foldable glass smartphone featuring the brand’s proprietary bendable Samsung UTG (UltraThin Glass), a revolution unlike any other.
The secret behind this distinct forward folding form factor lies in its Hideaway Hinge and innovative folding system that enable the device to stay open at a range of angles. Its mechanism is smooth and stable, paving the way for an incredible experience limited only by your imagination. Say hello to better and safer hands-free capture and sharing.
SPACE FOR VIEWING
Open it up all the way to see how the Infinity Flex Display transforms into an immersive multimedia hub. With a stunning 6.7-inch display, it offers seamless multitasking proficiency so you can work and play like a star.
Upping its game is Flex Mode, a custom-built user experience on which Samsung worked closely with Google. While the device is free-standing, its display automatically splits into two 4-inch screens. This enables users to view content on the top half of the display and control them on the bottom half. There’s also the Multi-Active Window to drag and drop the apps you want to use and further challenge your attention span.
Designed to be compact and extremely portable, this phone is as sexy as they come, measuring in at 73.6 x 167.3 x 7.2mm – 6.9mm (screen) when unfolded and 73.6 x 87.4 x 17.3mm (hinge) when folded. The size of a wallet with softly rounded corners, it fits neatly in the palm of your hand and even slips into the pockets of your skinny jeans with the utmost ease. Its prismatic finish is strikingly beautiful, be it in Mirror Purple, Mirror Black, or Mirror Gold—stunning hues straight out of the pages of a sci-fi fantasy.
Those who live, work, and play behind the lens will love the Ultra Wide Camera and Wide-angle Camera (both 12MP) in the rear as well as the 10MP selfie camera in front. Amp up your Insta-game with creatively angled photos and produce the coolest videos with a 16:9 ratio that’s perfect for social media uploads. Equally delightful is the Night Hyperlapse video capture and vivid low light images with Night mode. Because really, who has time to play with the flash?
The 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Display befits your vibrant masterpieces, all of which can be saved on 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Great news for those who can’t resist midnight tweets and online shopping: the advanced Eye Care Display reduces eye strain and sleep disturbance without sacrificing colour clarity or visual pleasure. Flip on.
