Moreover, we are talking about one of the most powerful foldable handsets on the globe. It came with a starting price tag of $1,000. Thus, the Flip 2 was available at a much lower price than most of its rivals.
Recently, the phone got a huge price cut and has become even more competitive. Now, you can grab it for only $849.99 from Amazon’s online store. This is a direct $150 price cut, which is the lowest in the phone’s history.
In comparison to the first generation, the manufacturer has improved the secondary screen. Plus, it has put a lot of effort to make the appearance better. However, we should point out that it has shorter battery life.
The main selling point of the phone is the 6.7-inch AMOLED screen. It can fold in half when the device is shut. The main screen supports 2640 x 1080 pixels (FHD +) resolution and refreshes rates up to 120 Hz.
The screen is protected from mechanical damage by a special Corning Gorilla Victus. That’s not difficult to guess that there is a secondary screen as well.
It has a 1.9-inch size. The latter displays notifications, calls, and other information without opening the phone. This display has a way lower resolution. The front shooter has a 10MP resolution, while the camera module on the back uses two 12MP lenses.
