Bringing together Samsung’s latest technology innovations with Thom Browne’s signature aesthetic has created such an incredible device.

Galaxy Z Flip: Fashion Meets Technology

Engineered with first-of-its-kind foldable glass, the Galaxy Z Flip features a 6.7-inch display[1] that folds into a stylish form factor that has roughly the same size as a powder compact, appealing to those who see technology as a way to express themselves. The Galaxy Z Flip provides elegant new ways to capture, share and experience content, opening up a new era of foldable mobile innovation. 

Available in Mirror Purple and Mirror Black, the Galaxy Z Flip features exquisite yet stylish design, as well as all innovative features; helps users to express their personal charm with advanced technology. The Galaxy Z Flip’s Hideaway Hinge is a work of engineering art. It’s backed by a dual CAM mechanism – small but sophisticatedly designed to ensure every flip and fold is smooth and stable. The Galaxy Z Flip can stay open at a range of angles, like a laptop screen. 

The Galaxy Z Flip folds into the size of a wallet to easily fit it in a pocket or bag. Matching with different styles of outfits, it is a fashionable gadget with ultimate portability. When closed, it is a stylish, compact palm-sized device. When opened, its screen size nearly doubles to reveal a stunning 6.7-inch display[2]. With its stylish color palette, sleek rounded corners and forward fold that closes with a satisfying snap, the Galaxy Z Flip is sure to impress users with its design and features. 

Samsung’s First Foldable Glass Display

The Galaxy Z Flip features an Infinity Flex Display with Samsung’s proprietary bendable Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), making it slimmer with a sleek, premium look. The centered in-display camera cutout at the top also means there’s no notch and no distractions, with Samsung’s first-ever 21.9:9 ratio, so you can enjoy even more of your favorite content such as cinema-ratio 21:9 shows and movies. 

The Next Foldable Experience for Modern Lifestyle

Galaxy Z Flip is built for the modern, on-the-go lifestyle. Now users can do more, from multiple angles – hands-free.

- Do more – Hands-free – When the Galaxy Z Flip unfolds, it can stay open at multiple angles, unlocking opportunities for selfies that show more of the world around you and expressive video chats with Google Duo – all hands-free.

- Flex mode – Samsung worked closely with Google to design Flex mode – a custom-built user experience for the Galaxy Z Flip’s unique forward folding form factor. When the device is free-standing, the display automatically splits into two 4-inch screens so you can easily view images, contents or videos on the top half of the display, and control them on the bottom half. Easily watch and navigate YouTube[3] – stream on the top while searching for other videos, reading descriptions and writing comments on the bottom.

- Game Changing Camera – The Galaxy Z Flip literally stands on its own so that users can capture more, on-the-go – from timed group shots to vivid nighttime content. Users can create content for their social media feeds from the best angle and enjoy video recording with a 16:9 ratio that’s perfect for uploads to social media platforms, hands-free – no tripod needed. Capture stunning Night Hyperlapse videos or vivid low light shots with Night Mode – no flash needed. Just open the device and place it on a table. When closed, quickly capture one-handed high-quality selfies using the rear camera without unfolding.

- Notifications on Your Terms – Whether the Galaxy Z Flip is closed, standing upright or open, never miss a text, call or reminder. When closed, check the date, time and battery status at a glance on the cover display[4]. Get real time notifications so users can easily answer a call without unfolding or respond to a text by simply tapping the notification and unfolding the Galaxy Z Flip.

- Multi-Active Window – Seamlessly multi-task with Multi-Active Window – simply open the Multi-Window Tray to drag and drop the apps users want to use. Scroll through an article on the latest fashion looks on the top half while shopping for their favorite pieces on the bottom[5].

Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition: A Surprising Device with Sartorial Style

Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition was created for those who are not afraid to make a statement—and who want their technology to be as iconic as their wardrobe. It features distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors on a pebble grey exterior, pulled right from the runway and offering all of the same innovative features as the Galaxy Z Flip. To complete the look, the special edition version also comes with custom designed Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Watch Active2.

Thom Browne’s Signature Style and Design

The limited edition smartphone, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition, is the first-of-its-kind to be encased in glass while still having a matte look that is soft to the touch and effortless to hold. Classic longwing brogues take a modern form with a grey pebble leather phone case, featuring the distinctive Thom Browne signature brand colors down the center. And, when unfolded, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition reveals even more design details inside. Iconic blinds—a reference to the mid-century office aesthetic at the center of the Thom Browne world—appear onscreen every time the phone is turned on and off. App icons, labeled in classic text, create an elemental Thom Browne uniformity. And sound cues—a typewriter for the keyboard, an analogue ringtone, a shoe tap on a marble floor—create a unique soundtrack for the device. Custom Thom Browne wallpaper ties the entire experience together.

Coordinating Wardrobe of Accessories

From the minute they open the box, Galaxy fans are transported to a world of luxury and high style. Like opening a drawer to reveal a cache of treasured items, faille grey folding paper and Thom Browne’s signature brand colors create an all new fashion experience. Inside, consumers will find a Galaxy Watch Active2 with a grey leather strap and a Thom Browne custom watch face that lets you personalize your wellness with style. And for a complete connected look, Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition is finished off with Galaxy Buds+ in matching grey for a cohesive and connected experience on the go, as well as a specially designed leather phone case infused with Thom Browne’s iconic style.
