Samsung Galaxy Z Flip: full specs leak ahead of February launch

Well now. This sure is comprehensive. In a bountiful leak by German tech site WinFuture, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip foldable phone has been described top to tail with a near complete specs sheet and renders to boot.

Aesthetically, this phone’s a looker arriving in a purple and black sheen. It also folds in half (more or less). Unfolded, it has a 22:9 6.7-inch display.

That’s even taller than Sony’s aspect ratio, so reaching the top of the screen one handed could become a bit of an issue.

These are the rumoured specs of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

  • It weights 183 grams.
  • Folded, it’s as compact as a smartphone you’ll get in 2020. It’s just 87mm tall when halved, but between 15 and 17mm thick. Note that 2mm gap.
  • Unfolded, expect a 168mm long device.
  • It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, similar to the S10e.
  • At the back, there’s a 1.06-inch always-on display for time and notifications, most likely.
  • The primary screen features 2636×1080 resolution.
  • Two primary cameras are at the rear. Both 12MP sensors, but one features dual-pixel autofocus and an f/1.8 aperture.
  • The other is an ultrawide camera with 123-degree lens and f/2.2 aperture. That ultrawide angle is slightly wider than the newer examples seen on the Galaxy A series.
  • The selfie camera is a 10MP snapper.
  • Internally, it’ll be powered by a Snapdragon 855+, not the 865.
  • 8GB of RAM features alongside 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage.
  • No SD card slot.
  • Battery technology includes 9W wireless charging and 15W wired charging.
  • A split 3300mAh battery features.

As for the price, well, that’s the one unknown at this point.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will likely come in around $1500, but considering the troubled Galaxy Fold debuted just less than $2000, it seems that foldables are getting cheaper.
