The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is definitely going to be a head-turner as far as design goes but we probably won’t be saying the same about its specs.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to Pack Last Year’s Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU
Just the other day it was indeed leaked that the foldable handset will be equipped with a 12MP dual camera setup on the back; which is somewhat disappointing to see in 2020. Meanwhile at the front we should find a 10MP sensor.
Moving forward to today, Max Weinbach from XDA Developers just revealed that the Galaxy Z Flip will also be equipped by last year’s flagship SoC – the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus. Of course, the presence of a Snapdragon 855 Plus on the Galaxy Z Flip is a set back, but we’ve to put into consideration that Samsung has been working on the device for a rather long time. Thus it’s probably easier for them to stick with the tried and trusted SD855+, instead of swapping it for the new SD865. Either way, the CPU should then be paired with 256GB of internal storage and a battery that ranges between 3300 and 3500mAh.

The Samsung Galaxy Flip will also feature a side fingerprint scanner and wireless charging
According to the leaker, the smartphone should also feature an old-style fingerprint scanner on the side; along with support for both wireless and reverse wireless charging. This means you can charge the phone itself and other device i.e. TWS earbuds if you wanted to.
What’s more interesting though, is screen size on the Galaxy Z Flip. We’re talking about a large 6.7-inch AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The display will then coated in “Samsung Ultra Thin Glass”, so we expect to see a crease of some sort. Now, we know that’s not a massive screen size on a device that you have to unfold, yet it’s bigger than something like the Motorola RAZR 2019 at 6.2 inches.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip should be officially released on February 11th; along with the latest Galaxy S20 series. The smartphone is expect to cost around $1500.
