Here’s what the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip looks like

Clamshell phones are becoming a thing again!

A leaked video shows Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Flip in the flesh.

Leakster Ben Geskin uploaded to Twitter what seems to be a working engineering unit for the company’s next foldable smartphone. The form factor coincides with teasers — it’s square when folded, and reveals a tall display when flipped out. The phone also snaps nicely back to its square form when closed, with a small secondary display displaying time and date.

Samsung has known to make clamshell phones in the 2000s before switching to Candybar smartphone form factors with BADA and Android operating systems. Their expertise in such is actually being displayed here, as Samsung equipped the device with a thin glass layer to protect the foldable display. This also confirms rumors of a dual-camera lens and a punch-hole camera inside for selfies.

The company will launch this, along with the new Samsung Galaxy S20 series, at a global launch that’s taking place on February 12 (Manila time). Stay tuned with us for more updates.
