A new commercial that aired during the Oscars award show Sunday officially unveiled the final design of the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip foldable from Samsung. The commercial shows nothing more than the design of the phone, which is highlighted across dozens of simulated renders. Samsung should officially announce all details of the handset at its Unpacked event later today.

Just a hair ahead of its Unpacked event later today, Samsung unveiled the first official U.S. commercial for the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip this past Sunday during the Oscars.

The Galaxy Z Flip (as the countless leaks, rumors, and renders note) is the latest foldable from the Korean tech giant. The Z Flip, in contrast to the current Galaxy Fold, is a clamshell foldable similar to the recently released Motorola Razr. The 27-second commercial that aired Sunday emphasized this form factor; dozens of simulated Z Flips were shown opening and closing on a flat surface to take selfies, answer phone calls, and more. The renders showed off a blackish-blueish color and a light purple color.

Little else other than the design was shown in the commercial. As such, the internal specifications are still unknown at this point. However, Samsung will hold its Unpacked event later today. Many anticipate a full announcement of the Galaxy Z Flip that will detail everything about the phone, including its internals and price. Hopefully, it’ll be a fair bit cheaper than the exorbitant US $2000 asked for the Galaxy Fold

What do you think of the design of the Galaxy Z Flip? Is Samsung opening a new door, or should it clam up? Let us know in the comments.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
