This morning the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was leaked in full, front and back, with press images posted in Germany. This device has a foldable display that gives the device a standard smartphone sort of look when open, then a flip-phone sort of look when closed. This device has a 22:9 aspect ratio and a handsome look both front and back – and what’s that, a secondary display?
The display on the inside of this device is 6.7-inches AMOLED with an Infinity-O design – which means it’s got a single, centered forehead punch hole for its front-facing camera. This display is 2636 x 1080 pixels dense and has “Always On” functionality, much like a Galaxy S10 or Note 10.
The exterior display is 1.06-inches in size, 300 x 116 pixels dense, made with Super AMOLED technology. This display has Always On tech as well, and is covered with Gorilla Glass 6 reinforced glass. The exterior colors that’ll likely be made available first at Black and Purple – we’re seeing the Purple version above.
The Galaxy Z Flip has two sets of dimensions, one open, one closed. The open dimensions are tipped today to be 167.9 x 73.6 x 6.9-7.2 mm, while the closed dimensions are 167.9 x 73.6 x 15.4-17.3 mm. There would appear to be a single fingerprint reader on the side of the device, and it’s suggested that this smartphone comes equipped with smart Facial Recognition for secure login. Also onboard: Knox 3.4.1 for security, and Samsung’s Secure Folder feature.
The Galaxy Z Flip is rumored today to have a 3300mAh battery and quick charging up to 15watts – with Qi standard wireless charging up to 9 watts. That’s a strangely… low… capacity/speed there, so we’ll see about that one when the time is right.
UPDATE: More images incoming! Take a peek at the gallery below to see this device from multiple angles – and see if you can spot the secondary display!
UPDATE: Onboard sensors according to WinFuture (who also supply the images and such today) are Accelerometer, barometer, compass, brightness sensor, proximity detection, fingerprint sensor, and gyroscope. Inside we’ve also got Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type C, NFC, WiFi 6 (2.4 + 5 GHz, WiFi direct, Mirrorlink, and Samsung’s own Smart View.
Cameras on the back include a 12 MP dual pixel camera with aperture f / 1.8, aperture angle 78 , and a 12 MP ultra wide angle lens-toting camera with f / 2.2, 123 aperture angle, flash, HDR 10+, and opt. image stabilization. The front-facing camera here is tipped as a 10 MP dual pixel camera with f / 2.4, 80 aperture angle, auto focus, and the ability to work with voice control.
The one version of this device we’re yet aware of, per the leaks, is a Galaxy Z Flip with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage – UFS3.0. There’s no microSD card slot here! The processor we’re looking at in leaks is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ (7nm), and we’ll likely see Android 10 right out the gate with Samsung One UI 2.0 straight away.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will likely be revealed on February 11, 2020, at the next big Samsung event. The Galaxy Z Flip will be made available shortly thereafter – likely on February 14, 2020, Valentine’s Day. Pricing on this device likely starts at around 1500-Euro in Europe and around $1499 USD in the United States – but we won’t know until Samsung says for sure – so stay tuned!
