Samsung’s second folding phone, the Galaxy Z Flip is now available for pre-order online, for RM5,888.

According to the Samsung Malaysia website, customers need to type in the promo code “ZFLIPVIP” when they checkout, while the delivery period will be within five working days.

It comes in only one configuration of 256GB of storage space and 8GB RAM, and is available in three colours: Mirror Purple, Mirror Black and Mirror Gold.

The premium smartphone comes with extra perks like the Samsung Galaxy Z Concierge that includes a 24/7 careline, a priority lane when at a physical service centre, plus 12-months of free pick-up and delivery for servicing and screen protection in the form of a once-off inner screen replacement in case of cracks.

The smartphone is designed to fit in the pocket when folded, then flips open like a compact mirror, opening up a 6.7in AMOLED screen.

Samsung claims the scratch proof glass used for the screen can be folded and unfolded more than 200,000 times.

Meanwhile, the cover has a 1.1in always-on display that shows notifications and a clock, and allows users to see themselves when taking selfies without flipping the phone open.

The on-cover cameras that faces the user when the phone is folded, become a rear-camera when the device is unfolded.

It is made up of a 12-megapixel main camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

When unfolded, it also reveals a pin-hole 10-megapixel selfie camera at the top of the 6.7in screen.

The compact device packs a 3,300mAh battery that supports Qi Wireless charging and 15W fast wired-charging via USB-C.
