Samsung is rumored to be working on its own clamshell-style foldable phone to take on Motorola Razor 2019. Called the Galaxy Z Flip, this phone has popped up in many rumors and leaks so far. Now, a new set of rumors have surfaced on Twitter indicating that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will pack a capacitive fingerprint sensor like the Galaxy Fold, and comes with the company’s new ultra-thin glass solution. The glass is called the crease.
According to tipster Max Weinbach, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will have a capacitive fingerprint sensor, not an in-display. However, this is not a surprise as Samsung’s first foldable phone also fitted a capacitive fingerprint sensor. Additionally, Weinbach claims that the phone will pack a dual 12-megapixel shooter, one with a wide-angle lens and the other with an ultra-wide-angle lens. The phone is also said to support wireless charging as well as reverse wireless charging.
In addition, Weinbach says that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will come with a secondary display in the front, which is believed to be 1 inch in size and will show charging speed, battery information and more. It reportedly can also serve as a viewfinder, so users will be able to take selfies if they want to use the main camera.
As mentioned, the phone is said to pack Samsung Ultra-Thin Glass, one of all existing foldable phones that uses plastic solution, not glass. Unfortunately, it will crease as its plastic counterpart. Weinbach noted the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC in Samsung phones as well as support for 15W fast charging.
According to rumors and leaks so far, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is expected to come with a 6.7-inch flexible dynamic AMOLED display. The phone can be unveiled at the Unpacked event with the company’s Galaxy S20 series on or before next month. We should listen more in the coming days.
