Samsung’s 5G Galaxy Z Flip may have been fully revealed in these latest leaks

We knew there was a 5G variant of Samsung’s vertically foldable Galaxy Z Flip clamshell on the way, after the first images leaked earlier this month. Now we have a very leaked video and a series of rumors about the new “Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G” that seems to leave nothing to the imagination – and suggests that it may be ready for Samsung’s upcoming August 5 Galaxy Unpacked event.

Basically, it looks like it will be practically the same foldable phone, but with a faster processor and 5G.

Based on the video by Evan Blass, a phone speaker – which shows the phone from practically every angle – it looks practically identical to the original LTE version that went on sale on February 14. The only differences except 5G support and a new “mystical bronze” color, it says XDA developers Max Weinbach, is that it will be oh so slightly bigger and thicker and is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 865 Plus chip – a small spec bump over the Snapdragon 855 Plus that was in the original.

The phone may also have the same size battery, according to Weinbach, which makes us wonder how long it could last after charging – the original was not a battery champion, and now it reportedly has 5G and a faster processor to turn on as well.

The Chinese telecommunications certification center TENAA previously confirmed that the phone would probably have the Snapdragon 865 Plus chipand the Wireless Power Consortium also mentioned a “Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G” as a phone that would support wireless chargingso it sounds like that’s probably the name and your wireless chargers will continue to work. (You can thank MySmartPrice to spot both.)

While 5G may be the flagship feature here, 5G phones still have a way to go before they become the new normal. While 5G can make downloads faster and cloud services respond faster – depending on the type of 5G – there are many compromises such as how much 5G phones cost and whether you can easily find a signal.
