A few hours after Lenovo launched the world’s first Snapdragon 865 Plus-powered phone, the Legion Phone Duel, Samsung has launched a device with the same chipset as well. The new phone from the brand is the 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. The original Galaxy Z Flip was launched in February this year.
Apart from the more powerful processor and 5G connectivity, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G retains all its other specifications from the standard variant. To recap, the phone features an Infinity Flex Display, dual 12-megapixel cameras on the outside and 3,300mAh battery with fast charging.

Right beside the outer display, there’s a dual primary camera setup comprising a 12MP Dual Pixel main snapper and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle secondary camera. The main display has a punch-hole cutout to house a single 10MP Dual Pixel AF selfie shooter.
Handling the performance is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC with 7nm fabrication, 3,1GHz clock speed and Adreno 650 GPU. The processor is mated to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. The smartphone boots the Android 10-based One UI and is powered by a 3,300mAh battery with fast charging, wireless charging and reverse wireless charging support.
