A video appearing to show off Samsung’s unannounced ‘Galaxy Z Flip’ phone has surfaced on the web. The short 19-second long clip features the Galaxy Z Flip being opened and closed while powered on, showing off the screen and a smaller display located on the clamshell phone as its closed.
The video made waves on Twitter when mobile leaker and tech news enthusiast Ben Geskin posted the video. However, Geskin sourced the video from Twitter user Yunis Ali. The mystery didn’t stop there. When Geskin asked Ali his source, the only information given was that it was from Instagram.

Right off the bat, the clamshell Galaxy Z Flip appears to be a comfortable fit in the palm of a hand while closed shut. The colour of the phone seems to be a close riff off the ‘Lilac Purple’ colour Samsung has used in the past for its Galaxy phones.
When shut, the Galaxy Z Flip appears to have a small display featuring the time, date, battery life and notifications indicator. You’ll also see that the alleged Galaxy Z Flip features a dual-camera. As the device is opened, the display can be seen to contain a watermark and an email address likely belonging to the device’s owner.
It is heavily rumoured that Samsung will be utilizing Ultra-Thin Glass to improve the build quality of its foldable device. Earlier last week, WinFuture reported a breakdown of the Galaxy Z Flip specs. In their report, they indicated that the device would feature a 6.7-inch display when opened, 8GB RAM, and be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ 7 nm CPU.
While the leaked video appears to be pretty concrete despite its puzzling origin, we’ll likely have official confirmation on the Galaxy Z Flip on February 11th when Samsung holds its Galaxy Unpacked event.
