You all won't want to miss out on this online sweepstakes! Unlike other folding devices now on the market, the Galaxy Z Flip display is made with an ultra-thin glass instead of plastic for improved feel and durability.

"Technologically, we are capable of designing phones that fold even more times, but what's more important than the folding technology itself is the kind of value to be offered for consumers", Roh was quoted as saying by The Korea Herald. When not in camera mode, the cover display can show information such as time, date and battery life.

Optus is offering the flagship of the group, the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 128 5G on a plan for $104.52 per month for 36 months (includes $49/mth plan + $55.52 handset repayment) with 60GB of included monthly data (min. total cost $3,762.72 over 36 months). But that's not the only difference between the two displays.

Weighing 183 grams, the Galaxy Z Flip is powered by Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, has 8 GB of RAM, and 256 GB of storage. The blue and red colorways will most likely be announced later. The multiple rear cameras comprise ultra-wide, wide-angle, telephoto and time of flight (TOF), delivering a wide range of image resolutions from 12MP to 108MP.


The Z Flip is Samsung's first foldable smartphone that uses a glass display, with Samsung adopting new ultra thin foldable glass technology. Take a short video and in Single Take mode the phone will automatically create a small collection of the best photo and video clip moments captured within it.

The launch of the Galaxy Z Flip marks a new chapter in the company's foldable device portfolio, and we don't say this just because it's a brand new device, but because the Galaxy Z Flip has established a new naming convention for Samsung's foldable devices.
