A new leaked photo gives us another view of Samsung’s folding Galaxy Z Flip
Just what we needed… another folding phone.
We’re expecting another Samsung event later this month to launch its latest foldable phone, and thanks to serial leaker Ben Geskin, we have a preview of what to expect. I mean, it’s a flip phone. With a foldable inside screen. We’ve already seen one of those.
Guess it’s round two for Samsung and the foldable phone market.*
*I’m not sure five people counts as a market yet
Oh joy, Samsung’s latest foldable phone is actually real

What do you get when you put two squares together? No, it’s not homework club, it’s a foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (I really hope they change that name before launch, nobody flips over anything anymore). I don’t get the “Z” either, as it only folds once. Maybe Samsung just wanted it to always be at the end of alphabetical lists of its Galaxy handsets.
Anyway, details are pretty scarce on the handset itself. Expect one of the latest Qualcomm chips to power it, multiple 12MP cameras since they’re in everything nowadays, multiple colors because it’s Samsung, and a price tag that will leave you with a kidney-shaped hole.
- It might be using “ultra-thin glass” that will let it fold and still protect the delicate OLED screen
- The tiny front display shows the time, battery stats, and works as a selfie mirror
- Samsung is working on an AirDrop-like feature that nobody will probably ever use
- Samsung has a $499 phone with a removable battery and it’s coming to the US very soon
- Motorola wants you to know that “bumps and lumps” are perfectly normal on Razr’s folding screen
- DoubleTake is an iPhone app that lets you record from two cameras at once
