Galaxy Z Flip now available to purchase from AT&T, Best Buy, T-Mobile

Samsung released its first clamshell-style folding phone earlier this year, the Galaxy Z Flip. Although still a niche device, it seemed to capture the attention of buyers more than the original Galaxy Fold. Samsung announced last month that a slightly-upgraded 5G version was on the way, and now you can buy one from select carriers and retailers.
