2020 Android Google News Rumors & Leaks Samsung

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Flip leaks out [Update: Leaked hands-on video]

While the Galaxy Fold may have gotten all the attention last year, Samsung is gearing up for their next foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip.

Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Flip will use a clamshell design similar to the new Motorola Razr.

The Galaxy Z Flip has a 6.7-inch (comprised of two screens) OLED display with a 22:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution. The phone will use an “ultra-thin glass” screen that should help iron out issues with the Galaxy Fold’s plastic panel.

There will be a 10MP hold-punch camera on the device for selfies and a 1.06-inch OLED panel that can show the time and notifications when the screen is closed.

Powering the Galaxy Z Flip is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor (not the new 865 chip which will likely debut in the Galaxy S20 lineup) and running Android 10. There will also be 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and no microSD card slot.

The dual main cameras on the Galaxy Z Flip are both 12 MP with one being an ultra-wide-angle and the other a standard lens.

There’s also be 3,300 mAh battery, USB-C port and support for wireless charging up to 9W. The power button on the device also doubles as a fingerprint reader like the S10e.

The Galaxy Z Flip will come in two colours, black and purple.

The phone will likely be officially revealed at their Galaxy Unpacked 2020 on February 11th alongside the Galaxy S20 lineup.

Update – February 2nd, 2020: A video has leaked out of the upcoming foldable phone in action, which was shared by leaker Ben Geskin on Twitter. The was originally found by Twitter user Yunis Ali (@silverarow).
