Flip phones are back in fashion. It is not the Motorolas of 2000s but a Samsung product, Galaxy Z Flip, which is a tall smartphone folding in half.

There is a small 1.1inch screen on the lid of the device adjacent to the main camera. It shows the time, the battery charge and notifications. When you unfold it, it has a 6.7 inch screen making it appear similar to a normal Samsung android. The Galaxy Z Flip has Qualcomm’s top-of-the-range chip from late 2019, the Snapdragon 855+, not this year’s top chip, the Snapdragon 865. It also has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which isn’t expandable with microSD.
