Samsung Galaxy Z Flip specs and features

The foldable smartphone comes with Samsung’s proprietary Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) and a hideaway hinge. As Samsung claims, when folded the phone assumes a compact form like the ‘size of a wallet.’

The Galaxy Z Flip is a dual SIM phone with one eSIM and one Nano-SIM card slot. E-sim services are currently provided by Airtel and Jio in India.

Users can view images, contents or videos on the top half of the display and control the content from the bottom half. In terms of apps, users can access two separate apps on the top and bottom halves of the screen.

When the mobile is folded, users can check the date, time and battery status on the cover display.
