Samsung reveals Galaxy Z Flip in surprise Oscars 2020 ad

Samsung just launched an ad for a phone they haven't released just yet, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.

The device spends most of the ad sitting up on a flat surface, so maybe Samsung is selling it as a great phone for video calls.

The Z Flip will be Samsung's second foldable screen-based phone, following the release of the Galaxy Fold previous year.

The ad also provides a first glimpse of the phone's small full-color digital screen on the back that can show a caller's ID and includes touch sliders for accepting and rejecting calls when the phone is folded up.

Apart from the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Buds+, we also expect some surprising announcements from Samsung on February 11.

The design is meant to emulate the classic "clamshell" flip phones of the 2000s, including the Samsung S500 and T609.

Companies should step up their business continuity plans, which includes asking employees to telecommute or segregating them into teams.

Since the rollout of 5G networks began past year, Samsung has established itself as the market leader for the network, with a number of 5G-ready devices launched during 2019.

This time, however, Samsung appears to be pre-empting criticism concerning the Flip's screen, warning consumers in its advert that a "small crease in the centre of the main screen is a natural characteristic".

Earlier leaks of the Galaxy Z Flip suggest the new device will come with a 6.7-inch OLED screen and "ultra-thin glass" screen and a metal case. Google Duo has been prominently highlighted in the clip.

It is set to be an important week for the company, which is widely expected to be unveiling a trio of Galaxy S20 phones at its Unpacked event.

Also unclear is where the Thom Browne edition of the Galaxy Z Flip will be available.
