Samsung's ultra-thin, yet sturdy, glass is created to last for up to 200,000 folds per phone and is called the "Infinity Flex Display".

The maxed-out S20 is by far the most exciting device announced at the Unpacked event, overshadowing even the foldable Galaxy Z Flip. But while the device is the brand's second smartphone that folds, it couldn't be more different than its older sibling. The Fold, well, folds in half like a slim book, while the Z Flip folds horizontally like the clamshell cellphone or of yore.

When fully opened, the Z Flip is created to be a full phone with its 6.7 inch OLED display. There's so much to love about this phone, head over to the comments, and let us know which feature is your favorite! But that's not the only difference between the two displays. According to the official press release, "The limited edition smartphone is the first of its kind to be encased in glass while still having a matte look that is soft to the touch and effortless to hold". Samsung is calling it the "Infinite Flex Display" and claims that its bendable Ultra Thin Glass can withstand 200,000 folds.

Because of the hinge design and the way that it's meant to be used at multiple angles, the Z Flip doesn't open as easily as traditional flip phones, which is a net positive. Probably not as the camera specs are a bit sparse but it is a pretty cool-looking device so if you only need one rear camera and a selfie camera, you might actually like it. It features a 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, a 108-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 48-megapixel telephoto camera, and a Depth Vision Camera. The phone's software isn't too shabby, either. The "freestop" hinge design allows the phone to stay open at nearly any angle, which it suggests is useful when, for example, you're propping it up in an "L" shape for Google Duo video calling. The phone can also multitask and give users the ability to drag and drop apps between display halves.
