With one of the biggest names in the world of tech. Samsung is also one of those brands that have a name in innovation in the smartphone industry. From introducing us to the world of phablets to launching the first commercially available foldable phone in India last year. The company has come up with interesting products over the last decade.Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung launched the Company’s second foldable device, the Galaxy Z Flip. That brings itself a design that’s innovative, yet not seen for the first time by the world. This is because the phone sports a clamshell design seen previously on the Moto Razr.
The phone has been launched at $1380 in the United States. And will be available for sale in limited quantities in the country starting today. The Galaxy Z Flip is a smartphone that sets the trend for the industry.
Galaxy Z Flip is the first foldable smartphone from Samsung that’s not intimidating in its size. And has a nice manageable form factor that can slip into your pocket without any troubles. But can also expand into a full-sized 6.7-inch display flaunting flagship. The display itself appears to a major positive for the device. Samsung’s used a foldable OLED panel here that can turn out a high resolution of 2636 x 1080 pixels. And is the first foldable phone to come with a folding glass on top of it. There’s also a secondary Super AMOLED display on the device that’s the 1.1-inch size. And appears primed for checking notifications on the go. It powered by a 7nm 64-bit Octa-Core chipset paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.
The core specs and the design come together to create a device that could very well turn out to be a mainstream foldable smartphone which many of us may end up choosing as our daily driver.
But as it is said that each story has two sides some bad and some good. Like that there is some bad about Galaxy Z Flip too. To begin with, the phone doesn’t appear to pack a big enough battery for a device flaunting a 6.7-inch display. The 3300mAh pack on the Z Flip pales in comparison to the 4380mAh pack found on the slightly bigger. 7.3-inch display flaunting Galaxy Fold. It will be prudent to not forget that the Galaxy Fold was one of the most impressive smartphones from 2019. When it came to battery life, and if the Z Flip is optimized anything like it, the new foldable device may still end up providing at least a day’s use on a single charge to its users.
The cameras are another department where Samsung could have done a little better with the Galaxy Z Flip. While the Galaxy Fold brought with it a total of six lenses for shooting pictures and videos. The Galaxy Z Flip only gets three, with the main camera module only getting a dual camera set-up with no fancy 108-megapixel lens being found on it.
Galaxy Z Flip has been launched in the US at $1380. And by the time it gets to the Indian stores. The phone could very well be retailing at a price point that eclipses the Rs 1.2 lakh mark. If this indeed ends up being the case, the Galaxy Z Flip will become too expensive for most of the buyers even in the premium segment.
Galaxy Z Flip is a bigger display on the cover of the display. The 1.1-panel housed on the device may well be good enough for receiving notifications. But a slightly bigger display would have allowed users to actually reply directly from it too. This would have not only improved the battery performance of the device. But also improved the overall life of the hinge-based mechanism on the phone.
But the interesting fact about this device by the South Korean media is that ‘Samsung is expecting a ten-fold increase in sales for the Z Flip. During its first week compared to the same period for the Galaxy Fold. Just yesterday Samsung held a limited 900 unit sale of the Z Flip in its home market. Its all units were gone in a matter of hours’.
