Galaxy Z Flip vs. Galaxy Fold specs: Comparing Samsung’s two foldable phones

Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Flip on Feb. 11 at Unpacked.

At Samsung’s Unpacked
event on Feb. 11, the company doubled down on the foldable phone trend with its new Galaxy Z Flipalready available for $1,380 — although getting one may soon be an even bigger challenge now –, the phone is positioned to go against the foldable Motorola Razr, which has a similar design and is available for $1,499. Within Samsung however, the Z Flip marks the company’s continuing commitment to the foldable phone trend, which began when the company announced the Galaxy Fold in February last year.

Both phones use Samsung’s Infinity Flex Display, which the company developed to enable its handsets to fold hundreds of thousands of times without breaking. Samsung claims both the Fold and the Z Flip can fold 200,000 times without breaking (AKA: the number of times a person would open and close their phone over five years of use), but when CNET tested this claim in October, the Galaxy Fold lasted about 120,000 folds. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, which has a 7.3-inch screen and opens and closes like a book, the Z Flip has a clamshell design. It also has a 6.7-inch display and dual 12-megapixel rear cameras. It costs $1,380 in the US and £1,300 in the UK.
