“Samsung Galaxy Z Flip shipping will start from February 26th and the handset will come with one-year accidental damage protection”
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was announced at the Unpacked event on February 11th alongside the Galaxy S20 series. While the latest S-series flagships are already available to pre-book in India, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will go on pre-booking from February 21st, i.e, tomorrow. Those who pre-book the smartphone will start receiving their orders starting February 26th. This is the second foldable phone from Samsung after the Galaxy Fold and the first in the world to use flexible glass instead of plastic display. The clamshell design is almost identical to the Motorola Razr (2019) and has a smaller form factor compared to its predecessor. Unlike the Motorola phone, it shows a crease in the middle when the device is unfolded. The India model ships with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC and not an Exynos chipset.
