New Renders Reveal Clamshell Design Of Galaxy Flip Z
Some new renders and details, picked up by prominent gadgets leaker Evan Blass and Roland Quandt of German tech site WinFuture, have seemingly revealed for the first time the Galaxy Flip Z’s clamshell design with slim bezels and an elongated display, along with further details on its design and key specs.
According to the leaks, the Galaxy Z Flip will sport a 6.7-inch display when open with 1080p resolution and 22:9 aspect ratio, and is protected by an ‘Ultra Thin Glass’ cover, which is designed to make the screen more durable than the standard plastic panel.
In terms of dimensions, it measures 167.9 x 73.6 x 6.9-7.2mm when open and 87.4 x 73.6 x 15.4-17.3mm when shut. It also comes with a central punch hole camera and a small 1.06-inch (300 x 116 pixels) external display for notifications when closed, and weighs only 183g.
As for the camera tech implemented, the Galaxy Flip Z will have two main cameras on the exterior – a 12MP primary camera and a 12MP camera for ultra-wide 123-degree photos.
It will have a 3,300mAh battery, wireless charging and USB-C connectivity, and will be equipped with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, 8GB RAM and 256GB of native storage. Unfortunately, the leaks suggest that there will be no microSD slot or 5G-support.
In terms of security, the Galaxy Flip Z comes with facial recognition and a fingerprint sensor on the side of the device.
The Samsung Galaxy Flip Z is expected to be officially announced during Samsung’s Unpacked event on February 11 in San Francisco, with an official release date of February 14.
It is rumoured to launch in four colour options – black, gold, purple and silver.
