Flip Phones - the 'New' Latest Thing in Phones
Yes, the flip phone may be making a comeback, but it's certainly not the flip phone from the early days of mobile phones. This flip phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, is among the new style of foldable phones.

The Flip will sell for a hefty $1,380, making it attractive only to early adopters and a very targeted audience at this point. In initial testing, the bendable glass display seems fragile and the phone is vulnerable to water and dust. Battery life can be improved, but did we mention the phone folds! Time will tell if the ability to fold your smart phone is a feature for which people are willing to pay a lot extra.
