Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled its second foldable smartphone – Galaxy Z Flip. And now, the company has improved the internals of the device and announced Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Check out the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G in Nepal.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G Overview

The latest chipset

When the original Z Flip was unveiled, people complained about how the company failed to fit in the latest processor despite the hefty price tag. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is the solution that Samsung came up with. It packs in the latest Snapdragon 865+ chipset and is the first non-gaming smartphone to have the processor. It’s a generation ahead of the last year’s Snapdragon 855+ that was used in the original Z Flip.

While the new chipset has an obvious performance boost over its predecessor, it also makes the device 5G-ready. The device supports sub-6GHz 5G with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing. Similarly, the device also comes with Wi-Fi 6.

The Flex Mode

The new Galaxy Z Flip 5G also comes with some software tweaks for a better user experience. The major change is the inclusion of the improved Flex model. During the launch of the Z Flip, Samsung showed off how the device was capable of standing on its own. When the device is opened with the upper and lower half of the screen at 90-degree to each other, the lower half can support the weight of the upper half. When the new Z Flip 5G is on this free-standing mode, it will trigger the Flex Mode.

This splits the screen into two sections with 4-inch halves each. The upper half will view the content, whereas the bottom half will provide control options. It will be more useful while streaming Youtube content. The upper screen will be reserved for the video, while the lower screen will display descriptions and comments.

New Colors

Samsung claims the inclusion of the new SoC and the 5G modem has not added any weight to the device. The 5G variant of the Z Flip is as compact as its 4G counterpart. To differentiate the two models, Samsung has added two new color options. The Z Flip 5G is now available in Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze.

Rest of the specs

The rest of the specs remains pretty much unchanged. It includes the 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. The device comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Similarly, the device features a 3,300mAh dual battery setup.
