Design and display
Meanwhile, here's recalling the Galaxy Z Flip
The Z Flip features a flexible 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080x2636 pixels) AMOLED panel that is protected by an ultra-thin glass. On the outside, you have a tiny 1.1-inch Super AMOLED display to see notifications when the phone is closed.
The hinge also uses a "Freestop folding technology" that allows you to open the handset at various angles for a number of use cases.
The phone offers a total of three cameras
On the outside, the Z Flip has a dual-lens camera that includes a 12MP (f/1.8) main sensor and a 12MP (f/2.2, 123-degree FoV) ultra-wide-angle lens. The setup is touted to support 4K video recording at up to 60fps as well as HDR10+ recording.
On the front, the phone sports a 10MP (f/2.4) camera for selfies and video calls.
Under the hood
The Galaxy Z Flip is powered by last year's high-performance Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of non-expandable storage.
Under the hood, it packs a couple of batteries to offer a combined capacity of 3,310mAh and runs on a tweaked version of Android 10.
The handset supports 15W fast charging, wireless charging, and has a side-mounted physical fingerprint reader.
