Samsung has been in the news for a lot of reasons lately. The South Korean giant recently launched the Galaxy S10 Lite and the Galaxy Note10 Lite in India, and it will soon announce the first flagship of the year, the Galaxy S20 Series, at the ‘Unpacked’ event that is scheduled to take place on February 11 in San Francisco. Another thing that is making the rounds on the internet is the company’s second foldable smartphone offering, the Galaxy Z. In the latest development, a hands-on video of the smartphone has been leaked, confirming rumours about the design of the device.
A short video was shared by tipster Ben Geskin over the weekend. The video shows a squarish-device, which is unfolded to reveal a long display. According to AndroidCentral, the device in the video is apparently an engineering sample. As soon as the phone is unfolded there seems to be a Samsung security consent form that is displayed on the screen. As far as the colour of the device is concerned, it could be called ‘Mirror Purple.’

There is a small display at the bottom left corner of the exterior of the device that shows time. The phone features a dual-camera setup and a LED flash. Previous leaks have suggested that the smartphone could sport a 6.7-inch display with a 2636 x 1080 resolution. With the clamshell form factor, the phone is likely to go against the Motorola Razr (2019) that was launched last year and went on sale in the second week of January in select countries.
Now coming back to foldable devices, Samsung Electronics’ President Young Sohn in December revealed that the South Korean giant had sold over one million foldable Galaxy Fold smartphones since its launch in September. As compared to the other smartphones, the number of handsets sold is a lot less, however, one should keep in mind its niche target audience and that it's the first device in this category. Not to mention the fact that it's expensive.
