Samsung Galaxy Z Flip appears in hands-on video

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip appears in hands-on video

The video gives us a pretty good look at the device.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will be revealed next week and this is Samsung's first flip-phone that uses a foldable display. Ben Geskin, who is popular for designing 3D renders of unreleased smartphones, has released a short video of the Galaxy Z Flip on Twitter, giving us a look at all the angles of the device.

For the Z Flip's camera, leaks suggest Samsung could opt for for a dual-lens setup on the back consisting of two 12MP sensors, along with a 10MP camera on the front.

The video does not show a lot but it does show the new 22:9 aspect ratio of the display as well as what appears to be a smooth glass surface (no "normal" bumps here).

Once closed the status display is active and it appears to display the following: a notification dot, time, date, and battery level remaining.

When unfolded, the Z Flip is.well, taller than one would expect. Unlike the Fold, however, this handset transforms from a typical smartphone into a small clamshell model.

From the video, the Galaxy Z Flip can be closed nearly completely flat, without leaving a huge thigh gap like the current Galaxy Fold. The display plays host to a selfie camera, housed within a hole-punch.

According to WinFuture's Roland Quandt, the Galaxy Z Flip has a 6.7-inch foldable AMOLED screen on the inside and a 1.06-inch screen on the outside.

We look forward to putting both the Galaxy Z Flip and the Razr through their paces.
