We've heard rumors that a 5G version of the Galaxy Z Flip could be announced at a Samsung event on August 5. But before then, the device has been shown off by a regulatory agency.
Chinese agency TENAA has spilled several images and spec details of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G (via XDA-Developers). The design of this 5G foldable looks pretty similar to the 4G version that launched earlier this year, complete with a clamshell design, pill-shaped outer display, and dual outer camera setup.
Most of the specs of this Galaxy Z Flip 5G look pretty similar to the 4G model as well. There is one notable difference, though, which is that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G includes a Snapdragon 865 processor rather than last year's Snapdragon 855 like the 4G Galaxy Z Flip.
Other specs of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G included in this TENAA listing include a 6.7-inch main display with a resolution of 2636x1080, a 1.1-inch 300x112 outer display, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of built-in storage. The 3300mAh battery is slated to remain the same on this 5G model, too.
Finally, this regulatory entry lists the Galaxy Z Flip 5G with the model number SM-F7070.
The 4G version of the Galaxy Z Flip isn't cheap, carrying an unlocked price of $1,380, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is even pricier when it launches. That said, the Galaxy Z Flip is definitely a bleeding edge device just like other foldable phones, and so if folks are willing to pay a premium to have this cutting edge foldable tech, it'll be nice for them to have the option to get 5G in that device, too.
