The South Korean firm is now offering us an inside look at the Galaxy Z Flip’s hinge mechanism via a new video. The second-generation hinge design from Samsung holds the whole phone together, and the company says that designing it was no easy feat. It had to design the hinge in such a way that it did not add bulk but still managed to keep dirt and sand away
The patented Hideaway Hinge technology uses two groundbreaking innovations: dual CAM mechanism and sweeper. The ridge-shaped dual CAM mechanism offers a gradual folding experience, and you can think of it as a dimmer when compared to a light switch. A light switch can only be turned on or off, while the dimmer offers many degrees of control.
