- Samsung released the first Galaxy Z Flip on February 14th, 2020, and a 5G model followed in July.
- Samsung has yet to announce a follow-up to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, but Waqar Khan has shared a stunning concept video that offers up one potential design.
- In addition to including the same triple camera array that appeared on the Galaxy S21, Khan also added a small touchscreen on the front of the phone.
One of the more intriguing design trends to follow in recent years has been the resurrection of the flip phone. Back in the mid-2000s, the Motorola RAZR's clamshell chassis was ubiquitous, and the concept of flipping a phone open and closed seemed natural. A decade later, smartphones had taken over, and the new goal was to have a display take up as much of the front panel as possible. But no trend ever truly dies, and over the past few years, some of the biggest names in the industry have revived flip phones with a modern twist: Foldable displays.
At this point, there are a number of foldable smartphones on the market, but Samsung's have certainly received the most attention. The company's first attempt at a foldable -- the Galaxy Fold -- was plagued with issues, but gave us a valuable peek into the future of phone design. Months later, Samsung introduced us to the Galaxy Z Flip, which did away with the book-like design of the Fold in favor of a layout similar to that of the old Razr. Later in 2020, Samsung revealed a 5G model of the Z Flip, but it looked virtually identical to the original.
A follow-up to the Galaxy Z Flip seems inevitable, and in anticipation of its arrival, Waqar Khan has mocked up a 3D model of the phone that draws heavy inspiration from the design of the recently-released Galaxy S21.
