The first attempt to release a folding phone with a folding screen from Samsung was not the most successful.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
This short video posted on TwitterBen Geskin, for the first time showing a clamshell-like device in action. The Galaxy Z Flip resembles a traditional foldable phone that folds into a compact palm-sized phone that makes it small enough to fit easily in your pocket.

The phone seems to have two cameras on the backpanels, which is similar to the alleged leaks of images that we saw in December. What is not clear is whether the new model uses the previously-known “ultra-thin glass,” which Samsung has been said to have developed to avoid display problems that plague the Galaxy Fold, which uses a plastic screen.
The 6.7-inch Galaxy Z Flip is expected to bemore affordable than its book-style predecessor. Recall that its price in the US is $ 1,980. In November, Motorola announced the revival of its Razr brand in the form of a similar vertically folding Android phone. The new middle-class Razr will cost $ 1,499; it will be released next month.
The Galaxy Z Flip is expected to appear alongside the Galaxy S11 (possibly also called the Galaxy S20) at the Samsung Unpacked event in San Francisco on February 11th.
There are no rumors on the web that Apple is planningto release a foldable smartphone in the near future, but Apple is undoubtedly exploring folding devices, given that competing companies are already releasing them. Apple has patented some folding display technologies in the past, and it was rumored earlier this year that Samsung provided Apple with foldable display designs.
