Samsung will join the flip fracas with its Galaxy Z Flip rumored to be launched on 11 February–along with the next Galaxy S-Series flagship–the S20.
We call it a fracas as Motorola has just launched (available on 24 February) its Razr flip–a killer idea at a killer price ($2699). Even, what price do you pay for the style? Perhaps Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip is going to answer that.
We don't have a lot of details–the Galaxy Z Flip isn't here yet, the Galaxy Z Flip Render We do know it's a perfect square when it's folded and doesn't have a prominent Razr chin. Unofficial renders placed it at about 12 mm thin (when folded) with a flexible AMOLED glass screen.
The most significant difference here is that the Razr has a 6.2-inch P-OLED (plastic) 2124×876, 21:9 floating screen vs the 6.7-inch Galaxy Z Flip fixed' ultra-thin glass ' 2636x 1080 with a 22:9 screen.
The Galaxy Z Flip will allow the screen to be tilted at 90 ° (using the bottom half as a stand) and to be partitioned into the top and bottom panels–the Razr is open or closed. There's going to be a small front notification pad.
Processor wisely looks like the Qualcomm SD855 + 8/256 GB versus the Razr SD710 6/128 GB. The Razr processor is less efficient, yet we wonder at the value of having the world's fastest processor in the Galaxy Z Flip–heat, battery, etc. The battery is 3,300mAh (Razr 2,150) with 15W of quick and wireless charging and reverse charge.
Camera: It may have a new 108MP Samsung sensor (linked to 18MP), but our money is on a 12 + 12/10MP primary / ultra-wide / selfie setup.
Price: Well, tech isn't cheap— about $100 less than a Razr. That really lends credibility to the Razr brand, but the Samboys will be crowing on the way to superior specifications. Motorola has an emblem of its theme.
Yet despite Samsung's penchant for milk, any model for what it's worth can see a Z Flip economy, and pro (7.2) "versions. Samsung's website here, but information will not be available until 11 February.
