A new video has shown the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip in action, and we have a feeling public opinion on it could be divisive. The clamshell-style foldable phone will be launched on February 11, alongside the Galaxy S20 series.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 phones may be the stars of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event in nine days, but the company will also launch a few other gadgets. The egregiously-named Galaxy Z Flip is one of them, and a hands-on video of the device has now surfaced.

The video gives us a pretty good look at the device. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, Samsung's first attempt at a foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip adopts a clamshell-style design—much like the Motorola RAZR. When folded, it takes a small squarish form, with a secondary display at the front showing a clock, date, battery status and, likely, notifications. There's also a dual-camera setup.

When unfolded, the Z Flip is...well, taller than one would expect. A quick journey to Paint reveals an aspect ratio in the region of 21.5:9. That's in the same ballpark as the Motorola RAZR, surprisingly. The display plays host to a selfie camera, housed within a hole-punch. There's not much about the folding mechanism itself that could be glimpsed from the short video, sadly. 

What do you think of the Galaxy Z Flip? Practical? Pointless? Let us know in the comments below.
