Industry insiders expect 20,000 Galaxy Z Flip smartphones to be distributed to local vendors in the first week - a almost 10-fold increase from the initial volume of the Galaxy Fold, Samsung's first foldable smartphone, launched a year ago. That's a $300 up charge for more RAM and a lot more storage. At Samsung's Unpacked event this week, the mobile device maker announced a deal with Netflix that will bring to its Galaxy smartphones special bonus content associated with several Netflix original shows. One of the biggest hits by Samsung was the Galaxy series that is doing great till now.

Samsung made a splash on Tuesday with the official launch of the Galaxy Z Flip, the company's second foldable phone and first clamshell smartphone. Google is working on its own version, called Nearby Sharing, but it doesn't have a release date just yet.

Samsung is pricing the Galaxy S20 line pretty high. The partnership also allows Netflix to more deeply integrate its streaming service with Samsung devices. On the other hand, the S20 Plus and the S20 Ultra are equipped with one extra camera.

As the streaming battles heat up, Netflix is hoping a new partnership with Samsung will help it fend off rivals.

Talking about the Galaxy S20+ 5G, it features a slightly larger 6.7-inch WQHD+ Dynamic AMOLED with the same 20:9 aspect ratio. All three phones can capture video up to 8K, with both the S20 and S20+ offering 64MP resolution photos, 3x Hybrid Optical Zoom, and up to 30x Super Resolution Zoom.

In terms of optics, the Galaxy Z Flip houses a 12MP ultra-wide with f/2.2, 1.12um pixel size and 123-degree, 12MP wide-angle camera with f/1.8 aperture and 1.4um pixel size. It will pack a 4,500mAh battery, and that's 500mAh more than what Galaxy S20 offers. These two devices also come with IP68 level of resistance from dust and water. The smartphone is powered by the Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865, depending on the region.
