After the launch of the Galaxy Fold last year, Samsung took advantage in mid-February to announce its second folding phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, which was committed to flexible glass, the 12 MP double camera, and vertical folding as the main novelties regarding the Fold.
Now, after several weeks of rumors and leaks, the South Korean company has decided to renew the Z Flip by equipping it with the latest Qualcomm processor and launching it in two new colors. So, the only thing that differentiates the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is, as its name suggests, the 5G connectivity provided by the Snapdragon 865+.

Now with a new processor and new colors
Beyond the two new colors, Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze, the big difference between the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the original model is that it has the Snapdragon 865+ processor on board, which means that it is now compatible with both 5G networks and NSA as SA. That chipset is again accompanied by 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal UFS 3.0 storage and the Android 10 operating system with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 layer.
The screens remain the same: when deployed, we have a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel with flexible glass , a resolution of 2,636 x 1,080 pixels and a hole for the front camera, while the outer panel is Super AMOLED, it has a 1.06-inch diagonal and has a resolution of 300 x 112 pixels.
There are also no differences in the photographic equipment (10 MP f / 2.4 front camera and 12 MP dual rear camera with flash) and in the 3,300 mAh dual battery with support for both 15W fast charging and wireless charging. It does have some improved features, such as Flex Mode, which divides the panel into two 4-inch screens, and multitasking with a Multi-Active window and Multi-Window Tray.
