Five of the best new features Samsung's latest flagship phone was unveiled at Unpacked and ZDNet's Beth Mauder walks you through five of her favorite new features. To cater to our interest and, you know, for marketing purposes, gives us more details about the structure and function of the 108MP ISOCELL Bright HM1 sensor. The "freestop" hinge design allows the phone to stay open at nearly any angle, which it suggests is useful when, for example, you're propping it up in an "L" shape for Google Duo video calling.

Samsung will no doubt be hoping the third time's a charm proverb won't apply to its foldable phone success, because its second-ever attempt is here (as of today) to steal you away from your boring flat phone, and it reeks of delicious nostalgia.

It seems that almost all carriers will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S20 line on their networks.

Of course, considering the problems that plagued the Fold, and led to its release being delayed multiple times, a lot of attention is on the Z Flip's hinge. Unlike other folding devices now on the market, the Galaxy Z Flip display is made with an ultra-thin glass instead of plastic for improved feel and durability. Quantities are limited, so save the date if you want one! There's also a small, 1.1-inch OLED display on the phone's cover that will display notifications when it is folded and also be used as a viewfinder in camera mode.

The Z Flip is Samsung's first foldable smartphone that uses a glass display, with Samsung adopting new ultra thin foldable glass technology.

The newest Samsung includes three cameras: at the front, there's a 10-megapixel f/2.4 selfie camera, and at the back, there's a 12-megapixel ultrawide and a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera to snap all of your favorite shots. For now we'll prepare to hold our breaths when it's released on February 14th.
