All about Samsung’s foldable smartphone
The Galaxy Z Flip is more akin to a Motorola RAZR 2019 than a Galaxy Z Fold 2, as it doesn’t unfold to provide a screen as large as a touch pad, but folds in half to make half the size of the tablet. size of a typical smartphone. The use is therefore not at all the same and strongly recalls flip phones, especially to pick up during a call.
Besides the feeling of nostalgia for the years 90-2000, this Z flip offers many possibilities thanks to its free position hinge. For example, it can be placed with the screen tilted at 120 degrees to watch a streaming video or even make a video call. The One UI interface is obviously adapted to this format and even offers some very practical software innovations, such as the native integration of the Google Duo button in the “Phone” application.
When unfolded, the Galaxy Z Flip is quite elongated due to a 6.7-inch AMOLED display offering a 22: 9 aspect ratio. Samsung obliges, the panel is well made and the trace of the fold in the middle is intended to be quite discreet. In any case, we forget it very easily. There’s also a second small 1.06-inch screen on the flip side to preview notifications and access a few quick settings as needed.
Regarding the technical sheet of the smartphone, it is solid with a powerful Snapdragon 855+ supported by 8 GB of RAM, an efficient dual 12 + 12 megapixel photo sensor (with ultra wide-angle lens), a front camera of 10 megapixels for decent selfies and a 3,300mAh battery. Only this last element weakens the whole, where the autonomy will not exceed more than a day. However, we take comfort in the fast and wireless charging compatibility of the foldable smartphone.
