Samsung unveiled its second foldable smartphone this Tuesday. One of the features that stood out during the presentation of the Galaxy Z Flip was the “Flex Mode”.

This mode allows you to divide the folding screen into two halves, which show different types of content. The focus of interest was to place the L-shaped device to take a selfie, for example, with the camera controls at the bottom of the screen.

Flex Mode is activated when the screen is at a 90 degree angle

According to an official statement from Google, this is a feature that will soon reach more manufacturers. It is good to remember that Google and Samsung worked together on this feature that is activated only when the screen is open at a 90 degree angle.

The main objective of this mode is that the content is shown at the top of the screen, and the controls at the bottom. This allows, for example, to watch a video on Youtube at the top, and browse the comments at the bottom of the screen.

For now there is no data on which brands will bring this functionality to their devices soon. But it will be certain that this is a feature that will make more sense on foldable smartphones of this kind.

It is good to remember that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will be available in UK on February 21st. The price will amount to € 1529, making it a device that is not for all portfolios. Still, well below the price of the Galaxy Fold and already with an ultra-thin glass screen.
