Stocks of latest flip-open phone will be renewed by February 18
Samsung’s new foldable flagship phone completely sold out in the UAE in the first day.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, with a starting price of AED5,499, went on sale on Friday but flew off the shelves before the day was out.
The smartphone flips open, like a case, opening into a 6.7-inch screen, and fits in a pocket when folded.
Ultrathin glass used for the screen can be folded and unfolded more than 200,000 times and resists scratches, according to Samsung.
According to the company, stocks will be renewed and made available by Tuesday across all major retailers, in Samsung brand stores and online at Samsung.com.
Galaxy Z Flip comes with 256 GB internal storage and is available in two colours, mirror black and mirror purple.
