When Samsung launched the interesting Galaxy Z Flip earlier this month, the unlocked version of the phone sold out quickly. The device is expected to be back in stock as of February 21, but it did not.
Now you can buy the Galaxy Z Flip immediately if you are an AT&T customer, but what if you just want the unlocked version? Well, Samsung is pleased to announce that the unlocked Galaxy Z Flip will be available again from February 28th to place the order.
As you may know, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip costs $ 1,380 and comes in two colors: Mirror Black and Mirror Purple. The unlocked Z Flip is compatible with virtually all relevant American airlines, starting with the top four: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint (including prepaid brands).
The Galaxy Z Flip is Samsung’s second foldable smartphone and can be seen as a direct competitor to the Motorola Razr (2019). Both devices combine the retro design of the flip phone with current technologies, including, of course, flexible screens.
Although it is undoubtedly a high-end smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip is not comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series when it comes to some specifications. Instead of using the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset found in the S20 models, the Z Flip features the slightly older Snapdragon 855 Plus.
There is also no support for 5G on the Galaxy Z Flip and the cameras don’t work as well as those in the Galaxy S20 family. Of course, some customers don’t care much about these things and probably want to buy the Z Flip because of its unique character.
