Samsung is attempting to demonstrate that the new Flip’s appeal extends far beyond its small size. That’s why it’s introducing the Flex feature, which divides apps across the device’s upper and lower borders when folded halfway.

Users will be able to access the upper section of the display by using the bottom half of the gadget as a cursor. This update should will it easier to utilize and control apps while in Flex functionality.

This Flex function is currently limited to a few devices, while Samsung has stated that it will consider adding it to older foldable Samsung handhelds. Users who had direct experience with the device mentioned that it worked well after they enabled the option in the menu bar.

The new Samsung Flip’s exterior display has also been improved, allowing users to send rapid replies to short messages, make phone calls, and snap portrait mode photographs from the outside display. Taken collectively, these enhancements represent a significant step forward for the company.

It’s unclear whether the development of the Flex feature and the additional features of the outer display will be enough to grab the attention of those who aren’t already interested in folding smartphones.

Other features

Furthermore, the phone’s battery capacity has been boosted to 3,700 mAh from 3,300 mAh in its predecessor.

The new Samsung Flip’s internal display is said to be 45% more sturdy, while the exterior is protected by Corning’s Victus plus Glass. Bora purple is a new colour option, and so are pink gold, deep blue, and graphite, which is close to gunmetal.

The aforementioned enhancements aren’t immediately noticeable when you touch the device, but they are apparent when you try to compare the new phone to its predecessor side by side.
