Galaxy Z Flip 5G is basically a variant of the original model presented last February. It carries the same design and format, but with support for new mobile broadband networks and a new chipset, the most advanced from Qualcomm for this year.
The terminal features the “shell” design that other manufacturers such as Motorola have recovered with the Moto Razr. Enormously compact when folded, it also allows good one-handed handling when unfolded thanks to a “folding glass” via an “Infinity Flex” display protected by an “ultra-thin glass” cover. Compared to polycarbonate, this component considerably strengthens the panel and avoids the resistance and robustness problems that affected the Galaxy Fold.

The main screen is the same as the original screen. A flexible multi-touch OLED with FHD+ resolution, 6.7-inches size and support for HDR10+. It also has a small 1-inch secondary screen located at the bottom of the external cover, which allows basic functions to be performed without having to deploy the terminal, receive information or notifications, or answer audio or video calls.
The Infinity-O Display design of the display includes a perforation for the 10MP selfie front camera and a dual sensor main camera. The connectivity section is very well covered despite its compact size, with 5G, Wi-Fi 6, USB Type C, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS and AKG speaker with support for Dolby Atmos. Its battery is not bad for its size (3,300mAh) and it supports fast and wireless charging.
The great novelty comes inside with the Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G, Qualcomm’s most advanced chipset in connectivity and also in performance, as it is the first mobile chipset that exceeds the 3GHz frequency barrier and that we saw it released yesterday. on superphones like ASUS ROG Phone 3 and Lenovo Legion Phone Duel.
