Samsung announced the 1,400-dollar Galaxy Z Flip during a press event in San Francisco on Tuesday. It’s the company’s second phone with a bendy screen, following the Galaxy Fold that launched last year. The Galaxy Fold broke when it was first given to reviewers, so Samsung took it back in and refined it before it was released to the public. It launched on February 14.
The Galaxy Z Flip looks like a traditional phone but can fold in half into a smaller square. It’s like the old flip phones we used to carry, only larger and with a full touch screen inside. And the Galaxy Z Flip doesn’t take up as much space in your pocket. It can also stay propped at 90 degrees for things like video chat.
It has a different design than the Galaxy Fold that may make it more durable than Samsung’s first foldable phone. The hinge is supposed to be more durable to help keep debris out.
