Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Flexible Glass Smartphone
Z Flip is the second folding smartphone from Samsung. Its design and main feature is a bendable screen that evokes a slight nostalgia and brings us back to the time of “folding beds”.

There is a dual screen mode, multiple active windows mode, notifications can be configured individually.
The front camera is mortise, at 10 megapixels. The main camera consists of two 12MP sensors, which is enough to get high-quality photos and videos. The phone also has a 3300 mA dual battery.
The smartphone will be presented in several colors: “shining amethyst”, “black diamond” and even gold.

The S20 + has an additional ToF sensor, which increases the depth of field and improves the quality of portrait photos.
Galaxy S20 Ultra gives the transition from ultra-high resolution to standard – at 12 megapixels. With this function, you can get the most clear shots even in low light conditions. Less noise and better nighttime shots are guaranteed.
