Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip flies off shelves on first day

Sitting at $2999, the tablet-phone hybrid that was the Galaxy Fold took one idea of what the foldable phone could be, and unfolded a long and slim phone into a tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 has only just made its pre-order appearance with deals hitting the virtual shelves just days ago. Unfortunately, after approaching multiple physical stores, we were unable to obtain a single unit of the phone as none of the stores had any stock left.

According to the publication, "In the first week of its release, the first batch of Samsung's new foldable smartphone here is expected to reach some 20,000 devices - 10 times greater than that of the company's first foldable phone".

Inspired by the iconic Lancome powder compact, that's how the Galaxy Z Flip is marketed to carrier execs and retailers, automatically putting it in the fashion accessory, girly category that Samsung is apparently aiming at.

We'll let you know what that is when Samsung tells us, but for now, it's just something that's coming in the near future.

"The Galaxy Z Flip display size is a 6.7" when unfurled, and we doubt it will be easy to find many users who care enough that it folds into a 3" phone size. Samsung is often accused of throwing so many features in its phones without refining them first.

When Galaxy Z Flip unfolds, it can stay open at virtually any angle, unlocking opportunities for selfies that show more of the world around you and expressive video chats with Google Duo - all hands-free. Since the expectations on the new Galaxy Z Flip aren't exactly high - considering the massive failure of Samsung Galaxy Fold, it remains to be seen whether the Galaxy S20 series will help restore Samsung's dominance in the premium segment. It rocks some familiar Samsung design elements we've all come to love but in a new folding form factor.

It comes with a 6.7-inch foldable main display and a 1.1-inch cover display on the front of the handset that allows users to check the time and notifications.
