Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

Samsung's second stab at a folding smartphone will retail for $2,199 in Australia.

Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Z Flip smartphone will launch in Australia on 3 April, with pre-orders kicking off this Friday (20 March). Like the Samsung Fold, the Galaxy Z Flip boasts a foldable AMOLED screen, although this time the screen is covered in Ultra Thin Glass instead of plastic.

The main display measures 6.7 inches unfolded, with a native resolution of 2,636 x 1,080 pixels (425ppi). When the screen is closed, a 1.1-inch display on the back takes care of basic functions.

Other noteworthy specs include a dual 12MP rear camera (a wide 12MP f/1.8 sensor and 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor), a 10MP selfie cam on the front, 8GB RAM, a 7nm 64-bit Octa-Core Processor, 256GB of internal storage, a 3,300mAh dual battery and Android 10 out of the box. You can see the full list of specifications below.

If Samsung can be believed, the Z Flip has already sold out in overseas markets due to "high demand". We suspect that that may have more to do with the limited number of units shipped than anything else. Nevertheless, prospective buyers are advised to act quickly if they want the device at launch.

As mentioned, you'll be able to pre-order the Z Flip from 20 March with the device going on sale on 2 April. You can pre-order it from Samsung direct, Optus, Vodafone, JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

If you're intrigued by the notion of folding phone screens, you might also want to check out Huawei's Mate XS. It's coming to Australia on 9 April, a week after the Z Flip.
