I have no idea what Samsung's press deal is with the Galaxy Z Flip.

Meanwhile, it's the same story in Samsung's home market in South Korea. While we suspect Australia will see the Galaxy Z Flip as the year goes on, the US and South Korea are the first places that get Samsung's second-gen folding phone. It took Samsung seven years to go from the first flexible display experiments to phones from the Fold- or Z-series, and in the meantime "rigid" handset displays grew from 4" to 6"+ on average. If the renders are in fact accurate, we may well be seeing a red variant of the Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus in the near future. You can also try buying the phone from physical carrier stores, but based on our experience we doubt you'll have much luck.

As to what the price will be locally when the Galaxy Z Flip does launch, our best bet is that it should come in either around the same price as Motorola's $2699 Razr, or near that of Samsung's other folding phone, the $2999 Galaxy Fold. In comparison, Samsung has managed to sell about 37 million Galaxy S10 units within the first six months since launch.

When Galaxy Z Flip unfolds, it can stay open at virtually any angle, unlocking opportunities for selfies that show more of the world around you and expressive video chats with Google Duo - all hands-free. We're hoping Samsung will replenish stock, but you'll have to keep checking repeatedly lest stocks run out again. Since the expectations on the new Galaxy Z Flip aren't exactly high - considering the massive failure of Samsung Galaxy Fold, it remains to be seen whether the Galaxy S20 series will help restore Samsung's dominance in the premium segment. Touting 256GB of onboard storage, 8GB of RAM, a 3,300mAh battery, and 6.7-inch 2,636 x 1,080 folding glass display, it may not have top-tier specs, but it should offer a top-tier experience.
