Samsung's folding Galaxy Z Flip revealed in 'leaked video'

Unfortunately for the leaker, Samsung now has their fingerprint…


…and retina scan.



I loved the GameBoy Advance SP. I played an obsessive amount of Super Puzzle Fighter on that thing.

Nintendo is so good at designing handheld game systems.

Also, the phone looks cool, I guess :slight_smile:

I do not particularly want this or anything like this.

But I love that we are heading away from the homogeneity of smartphone designs we have had for ages.


Don’t worry, they’ve improved it. This one will last TWO months.


I wonder if it’s locked in some sort of pre-release mode; or if our leaker appreciates leaving the “Information Security Solution” screen up while spilling secrets?

That UI is authentically Samsung, at least.

Going backward is the new forward.





Saw one at work.

I mistook it for a new razr until I noticed the hole punch camera up top.

The guy said he liked it but wasn’t sure if we were going to add it to the fleet. The first fold was a QA joke.

Looks like a very chunky, early model of those cool phones they had in the black mirror episode striking vipers. One of those i wanted, this… not so much.

So phone companies accept that people are quite able to handle thicker phones, and as such don’t need to sacrifice battery size/headphone jacks/replaceable batteries just to be thin for its own sake? Cool!



Those older phones looked similar, but not the same, like today’s are. A current model iPhone and Samsung are so similar a non tech person cannot tell the difference at sight. I mean, that’s probably because Samsung made the glass for both of them, but that’s besides the point.

You used to have a choice between stick phone, flip phone, slide phone, and some insane design phone (there was a cube phone once I almost bought), but now it’s “would you like the small piece of glass or the large piece of glass?”.

Good point, well made. Although I’d note that they aren’t mutually exclusive - you could have varied physical form AND multiple OS’ and apps.

All kidding aside, wasn’t there at least talk about eyeglasses/goggles with integral cell phone capabilities?

Don’t see why not. I have a pair of sunglasses I use when I mow the lawn that have built in flip down bluetooth headphones. I can (and have, accidentally) use it to make a call.

They were some random whim purchase one very late night. Weren’t even expensive.
