The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip's default keyboard seems to have a bug that automatically lowercases any letter typed in uppercase and this behavior is persistent even after fiddling around with the settings. It is not a big deal-breaker though, as users can still install third-party keyboards such as Gboard or SwiftKey.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is an interesting take on the once-popular flip phone concept. The device looks to correct some of the shortcomings of the Galaxy Fold while aiming to take on the Moto Razr 2019. While most reviewers could manage to have only a short time with the Galaxy Z Flip, some issues have already started becoming apparent.

Windows Central's Zac Bowden tweeted what appears to be a peculiar issue with the Flip's keyboard. He noticed that the Flip's default Samsung keyboard would automatically lowercase any uppercase letters that are typed. Interestingly though, it did not seem to lowercase the word "Samsung". 

Bowden says that he tried resetting the settings and even turned autocorrect on and off, but that apparently didn't solve the issue. It's not a deal-breaking problem but can get quite annoying if you need proper letter-casing in your texts. 

We expect Samsung to easily fix this via an app update, but those who have already spent nearly US$1,400 and are annoyed by this bug can use Gboard or SwiftKey in the meanwhile.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
