Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is reportedly getting a 5G version later this year. The handset was the second foldable smartphone from Samsung, introduced back in February alongside Samsung Galaxy S20 series. Despite being the successor to Samsung Galaxy Fold, which comes with fifth-gen cellular connectivity, the Z Flip lacked the 5G support. All that is likely to change soon. As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has 5G Galaxy Z Flip in the pipeline, which could be launched as early as before the end of the year. That said, the 5G version is likely to push the price of the handset up. The 4G Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, to recall, has been priced in India at Rs 1,15,890 – following the price hike.
The 5G Samsung Galaxy Z Flip could either rock Snapdragon 865 SoC or Snapdragon X50 5G modem paired with Snapdragon 855+ SoC.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G specifications
The specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G remain vague at the moment, but we expect them not to differ much from the 4G variant. The latter, for those unaware, was launched with a clamshell design, a 6.7-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O foldable display that bears 21.5:9 aspect ratio, and a 1.06-inch secondary colour display on the outside. The handset is powered by Snapdragon 855+ SoC with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage onboard. The 5G variant could either sport Snapdragon 865 SoC or house a Snapdragon X50 5G modem, which is compatible with Snapdragon 855+ SoC.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip boots Android 10 out of the box with One UI 2.0 custom skin on top and packs a 3,300mAh battery with support for 15W fast-charging. In terms of optics, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip features dual-rear cameras consisting of a 12MP primary sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens. There is a 10MP snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. The smartphone ships with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for security.
