The phone will have a flip phone design compared to the book-like mechanism of the Galaxy Fold and is said to lock at both 90 and 180 degree angles If rumours are to be believed, the Z Flip will cost around $1,000 (half as much as the Fold) and will prove stiff competition for the nostalgic $1,500 Motorola Razr reboot.
If this folding function is accurate then the Z Flip will have a genuine use case while partially folded. The Galaxy Fold doesn’t have a feature that utilises the crease in the display, partly because of its odd square form factor.
Samsung is due to unveil the Z Flip on stage at its Unpacked event in San Francisco on 11 February where the company will also reveal the Galaxy S20 series.
