  The name of Samsung’s most exciting foldable phone yet will make you flip The Galaxy Fold wasn’t the successful foldable experiment Samsung wanted, as a few design issues affected the phone’s durability last year. The phone was postponed from April to September, but Samsung wasn’t able to iron out all the problems with the handset’s fragility. But at least Samsung showed us what can go wrong with a foldable device, and technology will significantly improve in the coming years to allow for a much better design.

Opening the Z Flip will lead you to the 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex display that's made from an ultra thin glass. It uses a similar hinge to the original Galaxy Fold that has three main modes: folded, unfolded and halfway that leaves the bottom portion flat on a surface and the top facing you. There's also an extra layer of protective fibers to stop lint and other debris from getting inside. At the top of the main display is a 10-megapixel selfie camera.
