Images said to be showing Samsung’s newest 5G device – the Galaxy Z Flip 5G – have made their home online, reports The Verge. The pictures, first listed by China’s TENAA certification centre, confirm some key design specs including a new silver colour scheme.
The images suggest that the 5G foldable device could be powered by the Snapdragon 865+ as opposed to the Snapdragon 855+ fitted to the original LTE Z Flip – “there’s still 8GB of RAM, but the batteries are listed with capacities of 2,500mAh and 704mAh, compared to the total capacity of 3,300mAh the phone had previously,” writes The Verge.
MySmartPrice reports that the 5G device’s camera setup could instead sport a 10mp ultrawide lens rather than the 12mp lens on the LTE device.
It’s also worth noting that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has been FCC certified – igniting rumours that an official unveiling isn’t too far off.
A closer look at the Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung unveiled its next-generation foldable device – the Galaxy Z Flip – in February. The first official look showed off the device’s compact shape, exterior notification panel and impressive foldable screen display – something that the 5G version is likely to emulate.
Engineered with first-of-its-kind foldable glass, the Galaxy Z Flip featured a 6.7-inch display with 2,636 x 1,080 resolution and a 1.06-inch 300 x 116 notification panel on the front. Internally the device is powered by a Snapdragon 855+ processor and comes standard with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, and a 3,300mAh battery.
The Galaxy Z Flip sports two 12mp lens – wide and ultra-wide – making up the rear camera while the front is fitted with a 10mp punch-hole selfie camera.
