Galaxy Z Flip is the new Samsung smartphone now available in Australia. This is a very beautiful and unique iconic foldable design mobile that is only palm-sized when folded, but unfolds to give a full 6.7” screen experience. This is a brand new foldable Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass technology to make Z Flip a reality. So finally you can have a truly immersive display with a super smooth surface.
Measured diagonally, the screen size is 6.7″ in a full rectangle and 6.5″ accounting for the rounded corners. The actual viewable area is smaller due to the rounded corners and camera hole. The features of this phone are awesome.
The best features of Galaxy Z Flip
Hands-Free Camera: Galaxy Z Flip’s Free-stop mechanism allows you to use your Galaxy Z Flip as if were a laptop. When folded in half and placed on the flat surface, it will be automatically changed into Flex mode. So, you can use the upper half of the screen to view and bottom half to control. This means new angles to snap a video or photo without even having to use your hand.
Tripod-less Night Camera: Galaxy Z Flip’s unique foldability allows it to double up as a tripod which gives you the unique ability to capture stunning and stable photos and videos without using your hands.
In Night Mode, Galaxy Z Flip goes even further when acting as a tripod. It takes 14 shots in upto 4 minutes, combining them to give you the perfect bright shot without you having to even hold the device. Night Hyperlapse also allows you to capture nighttime videos with dynamic light trails, again without having to use your hands.
Quick Selfie: Galaxy Z Flip allows you to snap a selfie in seconds when folded. Double press the power button and press the volume key to take quality shots. Galaxy Z Flip’s cover screen will instantly show you a preview without having to even unfold.
Single Take: Z Flip’s Single Take mode captures a video, analyzes it using AI, and serves you up to 14 different photos and videos including ultra wide, bokeh, cropped photos, time lapse videos and more. Shoot it once, get multiple options and choose the perfect moment.
Hands-free communication: Take your video calls to the next level with Galaxy Z Flip’s unique foldable UX optimized for hands-free. Simply turn Z Flip to Flex mode (half folded) on a flat surface when you call a friend. The upper screen displays the video, whilst the bottom screen allows you to control and interact without having to hold your phone. Flex mode is supported by video calling apps such as Google Duo, so you can have immersive conversations with anyone in your contacts.
Optimized UX when folded/unfolded: Your apps will take on new dimensions with Z Flip. Galaxy Z Flip’s UI/UX has been designed specifically to the device’s form factor. With precise sensor technology, Galaxy Z Flip knows how to act when folded, unfolded and in between.
Hideaway Hinge: The Hideaway hinge has engineered to perfection. When you fold, the hinge elegantly disappears from view. The intelligent design includes free stop angles, which allow you to fold inwardly and gently lock into different angles mid-motion. The Hideaway hinge also gives the Z Flip extra protection with proprietary sweeper structure which helps prevent dust getting in too.
Immersive viewing experience: Colors are incredibly vivid and clear on Galaxy Z Flip’s gorgeous Dynamic AMOLED Display. With HDR 10+ Dynamic Tone Mapping, maximum 800 Nit of screen brightness and reduced blue light for less eye strain.
