Samsung Bangladesh has started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone, the first foldable smartphone in the world.
The Galaxy Z Flip has been engineered with a first-of-its-kind foldable glass featuring a 6.7-inch display that folds into a stylish and compact form, fitting in the palm of hand.
This model in Samsung's Galaxy series features an Infinity Flex Display with Samsung's proprietary bendable Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), making it slimmer while also retaining a sleek aesthetic never been seen with a foldable device before.
The centered in-display camera cutout at the top eliminates the need for a notch allowing people to enjoy more of their contents without any distraction.
Z Flip's Hideway Hinge is a backed by a dual CAM mechanism, sophisticatedly designed to ensure every flip and fold is smooth and stable. The device can stay at a range of angles, like a laptop screen.
