Samsung shows off its clamshell foldable Galaxy Z Flip two days before Unpacked
Just two days ahead of Samsung’s Unpacked keynote for 2020, the company has shared a teaser for its second foldable smartphone — the Galaxy Z Flip. The teaser in question was aired at this year’s Academy Awards and it shows off the phone in its entirety. We already had quite a bit of information about the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip, thanks to previous leaks, but now the company has gone ahead and confirmed some of the information.

The teaser showcases the Galaxy Z Flip sitting on a table at a 90-degree angle by itself, which suggests that users will be able to close the phone halfway, in order to use just the top half of the display for things like video calls. The video also shows the device folded all the way, but unlike the Moto Razr, it doesn’t seem to fold completely flat. Another difference between the Galaxy Z Flip and the Moto Razr is that the former will, most likely, have a crease running through the middle of the display. Samsung has included some small print in the app which says, “You may notice a small crease in the center of the main screen, which is a natural characteristic of the screen.”
Additionally, the ad also shows off the display on the outside, which is quite tiny but appears to have touch support and full-color output. The ad shows the screen displaying caller ID information for an incoming call, along with a slider for accepting or rejecting calls. We also get our first look at the two color options for the Galaxy Z Flip — purple and black. Samsung will officially release the device at the upcoming Unpacked event on February 11th. Along with the Galaxy Z Flip, the company will also be announcing its flagship Galaxy S20 lineup at the event.
