More details are leaking today about the Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung’s second foldable smartphone, that is expected to make its debut next month alongside the Galaxy S20 family.
The phone, previously thought to be called Galaxy Bloom or Galaxy Fold 2, will reportedly come with a 3,300 mAh battery. That’s definitely unimpressive, but it is bigger than what Motorola could fit into its reimagined foldable Razr with its disappointing 2,510 mAh cell.
With that capacity, the Galaxy Z Flip at least has the potential to make it through one day of use that isn’t very heavy, and the rumored fast charging will help top it up real quick. Additionally, we got some more details about the screen of the phone.
Unlike the Galaxy Fold, Samsung won’t just be using plastic on top of the foldable display panel. Instead, it will layer some ultra thin glass (that has been rumored before), but here’s the plot twist: there’s going to be plastic layered on top of that glass. So if it gets scratched, it’s only the plastic and not the glass that is fused to the display itself.
Hopefully this means that you could replace just the plastic layer if you wanted to, which would definitely cut down on costs significantly.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to come with 12MP main camera, not 108MP (report)
Samsung’s upcoming foldable clamshell smartphone has seen many leaks and reports of the unannounced smartphone’s specs, features, and design. The latest claim via Twitter is that the main camera will be 12MP sensor, and not the originally reported 108 MP, as claimed by Bloomberg.
It was initially believed that both the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy S20 Ultra will have the super-high-resolution sensor, but that was back when we were still calling them the Galaxy Fold 2 and the Galaxy S11.
