Rumors about Samsung’s next foldable have been circling for weeks. A new leak shows the full details for the upcoming vertically folding Galaxy Z Flip have been announced. WinFuture’s leak is still the major for the upcoming device including official renders from Samsung and an entire spec sheet for the Galaxy Z Flip. The Z Flip will feature a 6.7-inch, 22:9 aspect ratio foldable OLED Display with an FHD and 2636 x 1080 resolution. The new leak confirms the Z Flip will feature an Ultra-Thin Glass display, rather than a more fragile plastic panel. It has a hole for the 10-megapixel front camera. There’s also a second display on the outside: a 1.06-inch (300 x 116) OLED panel. It will tell the time and for displaying simple notifications.
There might be some compromises to this design. The Z Flip would run on a slightly older Snapdragon 855 Plus processor with 8GB of RAM instead of 865 expected in the Galaxy S20 family. You will find only 2 cameras on the back, one standard 12MP f/1.8 unit, and an ultra-wide f/2.2 shooter. It will have 256GB of internal storage, not expandable. There’s just a single USB-C port for charging and audio. There’s no expandable microSD card slot and no 3.5mm headphone jack. It is also missing support for 5G because the Galaxy Z Flip will only support LTE networks.
Most are looking for a maxed-out hardware monster that will likely do better off with the S20 lineup especially, the S20 Ultra. The Z Flip is meant for influencers and customers who prioritize design over sheer specs. The Z Flip will supposedly launch quickly, arriving as soon as 14th February 2020. The suggested cost is estimated by WinFuture at €1,500, but we wouldn’t count on it being cheap given the display tech. It would be for early adopters willing to pay a premium for the privilege of a large phone that can still fit in small pockets, much similar to RAZR.
