Samsung Galaxy S20 might be the crowning jewel of Samsung’ February event but equally exciting is their second foldable offering. The Samsung Z Flip has been rumored for a while now and thanks to a massive leak, we pretty much have a clue what it will entail.
First of all, the design (along with all the other specs) seen on Winfuture.de confirms what all of us suspected: it’s gonna be a Motorola Razr twin. The second foldable phone from Samsung will fold and unfold vertically, which just shows the company has paid attention to the general frenzy clamshell-style fans made when the Razr was first announced.
However, the “Ultra Thin Glass” used for the flexible display might be better in Samsung’s case. Speaking about the display, it’s gonna come up to 6.7-inch and 2636 x 1080 resolution while unfolded, meaning it will sport a 22:9 aspect ratio. It’s also going to support HDR10+ video.
On the front, you can see a hole-punch selfie camera, as well as a smaller 1.06-inch exterior display with Gorilla Glass protection where date and hour, notifications and incoming calls will probably be shown.
Under the hood, we’ll find a Snapdragon 855+ chip, Samsung probably keeping the 865 processor for the best-seller, the Galaxy S20. That’s still blazing fast, so you don’t have to worry in investing in an outdated piece of tech.
With 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, you can count on very good memory and plenty of space for your media. Security-wise, the Galaxy Z Flip is going to feature fingerprint recognition, with the scanner located sideways.
The hinge will open the phone up to 110 degrees and will stay open in a 90-degree angle too, so you can rest it open on a hard surface, safely.
The battery is decent enough, coming at 3,300 mAh battery. We usually expect 4,000 mAh cells and above from flagship phones right now, but given the how thick this phone needs to be – not much – I’ll say, let this one pass. In any case, Motorola Razr has a 2,510 mAh one, so Samsung did try to offer better.
To check it out in all its glory, wait for the February 11 event, where Samsung will unveil all its new handsets.
