The name of Samsung’s most exciting foldable phone yet will make you flip

  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. Samsung might already have one such device ready, a clamshell foldable we’ve been calling Galaxy Fold 2 until recently when the Galaxy Bloom moniker came out.

On Tuesday at the Samsung Unpacked event in San Francisco, the new Galaxy Z Flip was announced. The phone, which has an ultra-thin glass screen, folds in half to form a perfect square kind of like the Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP. But it's the exterior of the shiny $1,380 flip phone that is catching our attention… or rather our fingerprints.

  Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could have an even sillier name than we expected Another leak regarding the new Samsung Galaxy Fold has brought forward yet another possible name for it.This new name is 'Samsung Galaxy Z Flip', which is probably our least favorite name for the new device yet, and it was brought up by esteemed leaker @UniverseIce.

In between testers, each phone is wiped clean with vigor of Monica Geller from Friends. To be fair, most product launches have people whose sole job is to clean a shiny new device. But the Galaxy Z Flip, more so than most Samsung phones, seems to be especially prone to getting smudges.

The Z Flip's foldable phone rival, the Motorola Razr is also prone to smudges, but not as much. The Razr, made with a combination of Gorilla Glass 3, stainless steel and plastic, gets its fair share of fingerprint trails. But when it comes to collecting and displaying your finger oils, the Z Flip beats the Razr handily.

However, not everyone thinks the Z Flip collects a crime scene worth of fingerprints. CNET Senior Editor Vanessa Orellana-Hand said, "I don't think the finish is any worse than the regular, previous-gen Galaxy phones."

And yet, as you watch hands-on videos and look at photos of people handling the Galaxy Z Flip, you can't unsee the smudges. Perhaps it might be time to buy a case to cover them all up?
