Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G has been launched in the US as the latest foldable smartphone offering from the South Korean giant. The 5G model of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip that was unveiled in February adds faster network support and comes with an upgraded processor. This new phone launch comes just days before Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G supports 5G Non-Standalone(NSA), 5G Standalone(SA) network, and Sub6 bands. The phone’s key features include its clamshell-like open and close design, tiny cover display on the outer shell, and the Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
A 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip could be launched soon if the leaks from Evan Blass are to be believed. Blass recently took to Twitter to share a video of the device that shows the 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip. It looks just like the existing model but reportedly features 5G connectivity and an improved processor.
The fact that Samsung is working on a new variant of the Galaxy Z Flip is not surprising, especially since it was a success. It makes sense for Samsung to launch a new variant of the Galaxy Z Flip, but the company has to offer something new to consumers.
