Just a few days after a handful of Galaxy Z Flip specs leaked out, even more details on Samsung’s upcoming foldable have surfaced.
Unlike most recent Samsung flagships that’ve used an in-display fingerprint sensor, the Galaxy Z Flip will use a capacitive fingerprint reader on the side of the devices, says XDA-Developers‘ Max Weinbach.
Speaking of the display, it’s said that the 6.7-inch foldable screen will use “Samsung Ultra Thin Glass” and a Dynamic OLED screen, and yes, the screen will have a crease. There will also be an outer display to show battery info and act as a viewfinder for the main camera. The source said that the front screen will be 0.1 inches, but Weinbach thinks that they may have actually meant that it’ll be 1-inch.
The main display is going to be a big focus of the Galaxy Z Flip, which makes sense since it’s a foldable phone. The foldable glass could help give it a more premium feel than the plastic on the display of the Galaxy Fold while also being a bit more durable. Some folks might be disappointed to hear that there will still be a crease, but we are still very early on in the foldable cycle, and so some quirks like that are to be expected.
Around back, the Galaxy Z Flip will reportedly have a dual 12MP camera setup with one wide cam and one ultra-wide snapper. Both wireless charging and reverse wireless charging will purportedly be supported, meaning you’ll be able to charge other devices with the Z Flip. Support for 15W fast charging will also be included.
We’ve gotten a pretty good idea of what the Galaxy Z Flip is like thanks to the flurry of leaks that’ve come out lately, and we’re sure to see some more before Samsung’s event on February 11th. We’re still looking forward to that announcement, though, because Samsung may still have a surprise or two and we’re just interested in handling this foldable flip phone for ourselves.
