The unlocked version of the foldable phone is already sold out on Samsung's United States website.

We at Android Authority also tried our luck at scoring a Galaxy Z Flip in NY when sales opened last night.

Samsung's new foldable smartphone hit the shelves in South Korea on Friday as the world's largest smartphone maker aims to popularise the foldable form factor in the market.

The newly launched Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup is available in three variants - Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra. You can do so through Samsung's website but these orders will only ship by February 18. You can also try buying the phone from physical carrier stores, but based on our experience we doubt you'll have much luck. There's no lip or chin in the design like there is in Motorola's equivalent, with the focus here being on something more streamlined and simple: the Galaxy Z Flip is a big phone you can fold into a small one, closing shut rather like a pocket mirror, though with a small OLED screen on the outside to inform you of any notifications. In comparison, Samsung has managed to sell about 37 million Galaxy S10 units within the first six months since launch. However, known tipster Max Weinbach points out that there's a lot more interest in the foldable phone this time around.

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 past year, Xinhua news agency reported.

When Galaxy Z Flip unfolds, it can stay open at virtually any angle, unlocking opportunities for selfies that show more of the world around you and expressive video chats with Google Duo - all hands-free.

The handset features a 6.7 inch folding AMOLED display that has a FHD+ RESOLUTION OF 2636 X 1080 pixels and it comes with a Snapdragon 855 processor and 8GB of RAM.
