Ahead of an official local launch on the 3rd of April, Samsung are now taking preorders for their second-gen foldable smartphone.

Australian shoppers will be able to preorder the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip through the Samsung website and Samsung Experience Stores from March 20th at a local RRP of AU$2199. The device will also be available through selected partners including Optus, Vodafone, JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

It might only be launching a few months after the arrival of the Galaxy Fold but Samsung are already looking to offer something slightly different with the Z Flip.

“The Galaxy Z Flip is a statement piece and we can’t wait to see what Australians do with it.” said Garry McGregor, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Australia.

According to McGregor, "The Galaxy Z Flip has been a success globally since it’s unveiling at Samsung Unpacked in San Francisco last month. So much so, it has sold out in some markets due to the high demand."

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip offers up a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED display on the inside and a 1-inch OLED micro-display on the outside. It's powered by last year's Snapdragon 855+ processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of on-board storage. There's also a dual-lens rear camera that pairs up a 12-megapixel main lens and a 12-megapixel wide angle lens and a 10-megapixel single-lens camera on the inside of the device.

Overall, the form-factor here is very similar to Motorola's first foldable phone. However, with that device both delayed and set to carry a costlier price-tag, it's unclear how the revamped Razr will fare in a marketplace where Samsung is offering something that's significantly cheaper.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
