Samsung Galaxy Z Flip spec and render leak reveals Samsung’s clamshell foldable phone
The Galaxy S20 series has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors, but Samsung has an arguably more exciting device on the horizon as well. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is set to be the company’s second device with a foldable display. This time, however, the form factor mimics an old school flip phone, like Motorola’s rebooted Razr. Today, we’re getting our first look at leaked renders.
Previously, we’ve seen the device in live images and Samsung itself teased the device in a short video. And thanks to our own Max Weinbach, we already had a good idea about the specifications. We’re now getting our first look at the Galaxy Z Flip in product renders. The phone looks pretty much exactly as expected, but it’s nice to get a clear look. The renders show the Z Flip from all angles in black and purple. Let’s take a closer look.
When the phone is opened, you can see a single hole-punch atop the 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, which has a very tall 22:9 aspect ratio. The bezel around the display is very uniform in thickness around all sides. Other details about the display include 2636 x 1080 resolution, HDR10+, and the previously rumored “Ultra Thin Glass,” which should offer better protection.
The Galaxy Flip has a small 1.06-inch 300 x 116 Super AMOLED display on the “outside.” This display will be used to show the time, battery, and notifications. We can see in the purple renders that the external display blends in when not lit up. Next to the small display is the dual-camera setup, which features a main 12MP f/1.8 camera and a 12MP 123-degree wide-angle camera (the front-facing camera is 10MP with auto-focus capability).
As we can see from the profile renders, the Galaxy Z Flip is very thin when opened. The thickness is just 7.2mm when opened and 15.3-17.3mm when closed. The size range leads us to believe it will be wedge-shaped when closed. The Galaxy Z Flip comes in at 183g as well. For reference, the Galaxy Note 10+ is 7.9mm thick and weighs 196g.
Rounding out some of the other specifications, the Galaxy Z Flip has a USB-C port, 15W charging, wireless charging at 9W, and a 3,300mAh battery. The fingerprint scanner is on the side of the device. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 855+, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of UFS3.0 storage. Check out the full (still alleged) specification sheet below.
