SEOUL -- The foldable smartphone developed by South Korea's Samsung Electronics has been named one of the winners of the 2020 Nikkei Superior Products and Services Awards for opening up new possibilities in designing mobile devices.

The global electronics giant released the Galaxy Z Flip in February. The smartphone folds from top to bottom, like a flip phone of old. The screen was developed using ultrathin glass and a bendable organic light-emitting diode panel developed by Samsung.
