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.
