Samsung decided to enter the foldable category early on and announced the Galaxy Fold in February 2019. After a severe hiccup, Samsung released the phone for praise four months later. But Samsung is not yet finished with folding models, as the new Galaxy Z Flip is just on the horizon.
Samsung was to introduce the new foldable smartphone next to the Galaxy S20. Some rumors have called it the 2020 version of the Galaxy Fold, but that's not exactly true. The Z Flip is more like an old Motorola flip phone than a tablet that can be folded into a pocket format. It should also be significantly cheaper than the $ 2,000 fold, and that could help push the industry toward folding design earlier than most predicted.

While the Galaxy Z Flip will lack Qualcomm's latest SoC (and will likely have other flaws), it will be offered at almost half the cost of the Motorola RAZR, which is currently the cheapest model Foldable phone applies to US customers. It will have a clamshell design, making it more similar to the Motorola RAZR than the Galaxy Fold, making it easier to make calls and store in your pocket.
Rumor has it that the new Galaxy Z Flip (not the Galaxy Fold 2) with the model number Samsung SM-700F will be announced on February 11, 2020 alongside the Galaxy S20 series. Rumor has it that the event will take place in San Francisco, California. We currently do not know when pre-orders go online or when they are released.
- Release Date: Unknown
- Pre-Order Date: Unknown
- Announcement Date: February 11, 2020
Based on information known to us We can make some reasonable guesses about storage. We believe that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has a storage option, 256 GB, which is exactly half of the amount included in the Galaxy Fold. As with the Galaxy Fold, we don't expect support for microSD cards.
- Available memory: 256 GB
- Expandable memory: No
If there is a reason for this, be curious about the Z Flip. Rumor has it that the price is between $ 849 and $ 899. That's less than half the cost of the Galaxy Fold and a high-end, non-collapsible phone, just about the average. In context, this would be at the price of the rumored Galaxy S20 Ultra and less than the Apple iPhone 11 Pro.
In contrast to the Galaxy Fold, Samsung is supposed to use an ultra-thin glass on the Z Flip. If the glass is less than 100 microns thick, it can be folded reliably. The glass that Samsung uses here (developed by Dolnsys) is only 30 micrometers in size so you can be sure that it won't crack when you switch on the phone.
According to the Tipster Ice universe ] thanks to this glass design, the screen looks flatter and has fewer folds than the Galaxy Fold. Samsung has used several names as trademarks for this new display: "Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass", "Samsung UTG" and "UTG".
- Frame: Glass, aluminum  Finish: Unknown
The dimensions and weight of the phone are currently unknown to us. We also don't know if there will be an IP rating since the Galaxy Fold has never received an official rating. We also do not know which network operators will support the phone. But we will update this section as we learn more.
- Height: Unknown
- Width: Unknown
- Depth: Unknown

Just like the Galaxy S20 series Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, the latest version of Android, Android 10, run. Android 10 has native support for a foldable display, making it easier to scale apps to the new design. Since the phone bends like a conventional flip phone when opened, it is similar to a conventional phone. So the use of apps is no different from your non-foldable phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is running One UI 2, the latest version of Samsung's skin that runs on Android 10. One UI 2 builds on the success of One UI 1 and adds the new changes to Android 10 and some additions from Samsung.
Rumor has it that the unfolded phone is 6.7 inches. A hole is used to receive the front-facing camera. It will have small top and bottom bezels. We expect that it is an AMOLED panel, but we are not sure about the resolution.
There is an outer display (just like the Motorola RAZR), although it appears to save money, Samsung opts for a much smaller strip with limited interactions. Because of the leaked photos, the outer screen is only large enough to show time, battery percentage, and some notification icons.
One aspect of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip that fans may find uncomfortable is the use of the 2019 flagship SoC, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 However, to minimize costs, you should know that you will not notice the difference in most tasks.
In contrast to the 12 GB RAM in the Galaxy Fold, we expect significantly less, about 6 or 8 GB. This lowers costs and reduces electricity consumption.
- Memory: 6 or 8 GB RAM
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 855
- Chip size: 7 nanometer
- Coprocessor: Full name
- CPU frequency : 2.8 GHz (gold) + 2.4 GHz (gold) + 1.7 GHz (silver)
- CPU cores: 8 (4 gold + 4 silver)  GPU: Adreno 640
- GPU frequency: 585 MHz
The SM-F700F uses two batteries, which are likely to be found in each half of the phone (so the battery bends Not). The smaller battery has a capacity of 900 mAh. We don't know what the larger battery capacity is, but we hope that we can create at least 3,500 mAh in total. Anything less would mean average battery life at best.
According to XDA the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will support Samsung's new Super Fast Charging. This means that it supports the same charger as the Galaxy Note 10+ that starts at 25W (you can buy a 45W charger separately from Samsung for $ 37.49.)
- Battery: Rechargeable Lithium -Ion battery
- Capacity: Unknown
- Wired charging: Yes, Super Fast Charging

Rear view camera
We know from played through photos that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip has two rear view cameras. According to the Galaxy Z Flipberg, there will be the 108 MP sensor that is also available in the Galaxy S20 series.
The main camera is an ISOCELL Bright HM1 that uses pixel binning to combine neighboring pixels for better exposure and low light in one pixel performance. Images are reduced to 12 MP, but should offer much better performance in low light. Due to the circular opening, the Galaxy Z Flip is not supplied with the periscope telephoto camera S20 Ultra, which supports a 5x optical zoom and a 100x hybrid zoom. However, if rumors prove to be true, this should be a more than powerful camera with 3x optical zoom with OIS and EIS.
- Resolution: 108 MP (primary), 48 MP (tele)  Sensor size: 0.8 µm / 2.4 µm (primary), Unknown (Tele)
- Aperture: Unknown (primary), Unknown (Tele)

By choosing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, video performance is compared to the Galaxy S20 limited. It is not possible to record 8K (7680 × 4320) at 30 fps or super slow motion (960 fps) over an indefinite period. It should support HDR10 + video recording and Samsung's new Video Pro mode to better control video recording.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip shines over stereo speakers with a speaker over the main display and another bottom firing. There doesn't seem to be a headphone jack. We expect Samsung to work with AKG again to tune the speakers and get Dolby Atmos support for a louder (and more spacious) sound.
- 3.5mm headphone jack: no
- Stereo speakers: yes, front and bottom bombardment
- Microphones: Unknown
We expect the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip to offer the same media file support as the Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S20.  Audio: MP3, AAC, AAC +, WMA, AMR-NB, AMR-WB, WAV, FLAC, APE, OGG, MITTEL, M4A, IMY
We currently do not know if Samsung will make any changes to sensors.
- Sensors: Accelerometer, RGB ambient light sensor, barometer, gyro sensor, geomagnetic sensor, Hall sensor, proximity sensor, ultrasonic fingerprint sensor
Due to the Galaxy Note 10+, we believe that Samsung has the dual-freque system will use ncy GPS bandwagon and support for closer tracking on the new Clamshell Galaxy Fold.
- GPS: yes, L1 + L5
- aGPS: yes
- Glonass: yes, L1
- BeiDou: yes, B1
- Galileo: yes, E1 + E5a
- QZSS: no
We expect Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5 since all Samsung flagships included these features last year.
- Wi-Fi: 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac / ax
- Bluetooth: 5.0  NFC: yes
- Cellphone: Nano- SIM
- Connection: USB Type-C
Currently we do not know what biometrics will be used for.
- Fingerprint scanner: no or yes (type, e.g. in-display)
- Face scanner: no or yes (type / branding, e.g. face ID, 3D face, etc.))  Iris scanner: no or yes (type / branding)
- Manual authentication: list all types (password, PIN, passcode, pattern, swipe etc.)
We don't currently know what will be in the box, but we can make some educated guesses. That is, the 25 W super quick charge adapter and the USB-C cable. AKG USB-C earphones may be included, but this has not been confirmed.
