There is little left to know about the Galaxy Unpacked event that Samsung will hold next August 5 before the multiple leaks that have been arriving for months. One of the expected is the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, which now comes confirmed on video.
It will be the variant with support for the new 5G broadband networks and although it will follow the concept of the original it will offer some new features. Everything indicates that it will be slightly larger, it will keep the compact size and the “shell” design with which Samsung wanted to go back to the origins to boost its new generation of folding.
Considering 5G support, the biggest changes will come from within. While the first model features a Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, the Z Flip could include the latest from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 865 Plus presented last week and which will become the most powerful mobile chipset that can be mounted on smartphones for the last stretch of the year.
Your screen will be a Flexible OLED with support for HDR10 + protected by a “ultra-thin glass” cover which, compared to typical polycarbonate, should considerably reinforce the panel, develop less wrinkles and improve resistance and robustness. This cover is believed to be used in the Fold 2 as well, another device he will be presenting at the August event.
We do not believe that there are any significant changes to the camera system, while the presence of a small notification screen and the independent hinge that makes it so unique, similar to models like the Moto Razr, and that allows perfect handling with a single hand both folded and unfolded.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be marketed in three colors (gold, black and purple), as we see in the video. There are no details of the price, but considering that the original model costs $ 1,500 You will probably have to pay a little more to get this model with 5G and improved on the original in several sections.
