Like this. Creating smaller devices with new design aesthetics is wonderful.
Design is very bland. Doesn't look premium enough for the price tag.
Also, it's funny how they always use black-ish wallpapers to hide the crease as much as possible.
Overall, it doesn't seem very desirable. Still, i applaud them for making one of these flip style phones for those who are still looking for compact phones. They should make the necessary improvements in the next one to make it fully competitive with their regular flagships.
Duck of death, 29 Jan 2020Why do you fold your wallet? It's still a wallet when it's unfolded.Good one :D
I think we know the gender and demographic for this vanity mirror with communication abilities. Flip! "Aww my eye lashes look fabulous dahling! I'll snap a selfie now for you sweetie."
Missed op to include an S-Pen and make a Note Fold for us hunky creative guys. Yeh!
Looks like a tall s10 cut into half and then glued together. Foldables have great potential but not only for the sake of folding, but also for creating smaller devices with new design aesthetics.
Thank goodness for Samsung and the risk they are willing to undertake to bring innovation.

Compared to new Razr, it's pretty ugly, at least on photos.
Why is this made with Gorilla Glass on the outside. The fun part of re imagining a "clamshell" device is you can throw it in your pocket again with no awkward fits and no fear of it breaking if when you sit down. So does this mean we need to put a two part case on a folding device?? What is the drop test like with one more failure point (Folding glass/plastic, Hinge, Outside back and front. )
It's of no use... Unfolds into a regular phone. Then why fold a regular phone in the first place?
For the heck of it? Absolutely pointless
To the people who commented below, you can set the phone to stay at 70-110 degrees open. Below 70 degrees, it will snap shut, and above 110 degrees it will snap open. Nothing to complain about here.
karoko, 29 Jan 2020So illogical that Samsung designers decide to "lock" the phone in 90 degrees when nobody does ... moreI think it might be quite logical here's why
The thin bendable Gorilla Glass technology is fairly new so unless they're using a plastic screen again limiting bendablity to 90 degrees might make sense maybe even more so on a narrow device.
So illogical that Samsung designers decide to "lock" the phone in 90 degrees when nobody does that in any folding devices like laptops. We normally "lock" something into place around 145 degrees because holding a phone in a 90 degree angle will make you bend down just to see what's on the display.
It for sure should be called L not Z, as it does not even open.
The whole point of a clamshell is lost if you can not open it more IMHO
"It can be used adjusted between 70 and 110 degrees"
But one of the renders shows it straight, so that must be wrong, unless the text is....
