MORE ABOUT SAMSUNG GALAXY Z FLIP
After launching its first folding mobile in 2019, in 2020 the Korean firm has decided to change course and launch a smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, a totally different smartphone from the first Fold that boasts a shell design in which its screen 6.7 inches folds flat on itself to take up half the pocket space.
What other features does the Samsung foldable phone present? We will respond to this in this technical data sheet of the mobile phone that was presented on February 11, 2020, along with the Samsung Galaxy S20.
Imitating the design of other folding smartphones launched on the market in recent months (especially the 2019 Motorola Razr), on the outer glass we have a small 1-inch color screen that, although it does not allow any type of interaction, it does It is used to check the notifications we receive on the smartphone.
However, all the protagonism is taken by its flexible interior AMOLED screen that when unfolded reaches a size of 6.7 inches and a FullHD + resolution of 2636 x 1080px. 6.2 inches. This flexible panel folds in half when the phone is closed and takes up half the space in your hand, though it doubles in thickness.
As for its technical specifications, we are talking about a glass protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 that with multitouch capacitive technology can display 16 million colors and has a density of 425 dpi. Its main virtue is to dispense with the notch in favor of a hole in the screen that houses the mobile’s front camera, where a 10 MP sensor is housed.
At the heart of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip we do not have an Exynos chipset, if not the best Qualcomm processor of 2019. The Snapdragon 855+ is in charge of driving the folding mobile thanks to its 7nm format and 8-core configuration (2 x Cortex A76 at 2.96 GHz + 2 x Cortex at 2.36 GHz + 4 x Cortex at A55 at 1.95 GHz GHz) that work at more than 2.9 GHz thanks to being an overclocked 855.
As for graphic performance, the mobile has an Adreno 640 GPU, the same that we found in the Snapdragon 855 but that does not offer any type of problem when running games from the Play Store.
The new folding mobile Samsung is presented with only one configuration of 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory. Due to the flexible display format, the smartphone does not have an expansion module for MicroSD cards.
Although it is true that the strength of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is its format and screen, and not its camera, that does not mean that the technology manufacturer has neglected the photographic section of the smartphone. In fact, it is probably the best camera that we can find in a smartphone with these characteristics.
At the rear of the model, we find a dual 12 MP sensor with f / 1.8 followed by a 12 MP wide-angle with f / 2.2 that is capable of recording 4K video. It is also powered by the AI provided by the Qualcomm processor. The smartphone does not dispense with modes present in other phones such as panoramic, HDR, professional, and the already classic Night Mode and Portrait Mode.
The firm has given special importance to its front camera because one of the main uses of the phone is to make video calls. In the aforementioned hole in the screen, we came across a 10 MP lens with f / 2.4 aperture that is also capable of recording 4K video.
A 3,300 mAh battery is responsible for keeping the smartphone on for more than 24 hours. The brand at the moment has not provided us with the autonomy data of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip but we hope to update the technical sheet of the smartphone as soon as we can test the phone.
What we do know is that you can charge it in less than 2 hours since the phone has 15W fast charge technology.
The smartphone has LTE connectivity capable of offering a download speed of 1.2 Gbps (LTE Cat. 18) and 150 Mbps upload (LTE Cat.13). We also have WiFi802.11a (5GHz), 802.11ac (5GHz), 802.11b (2.4GHz), 802.11g (2.4GHz), 802.11n (2.4GHz), Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS as well as NFC for making mobile payments and FM Radio.
As for the physical ports, we find a fingerprint reader asnillos as a USB Type C for data transfer and battery charging. What we do not have, neither in this nor in any of the Samsung Galaxy S20 presented the same day, is a 3.5 mm minijack connector to plug in the headphones.
The price of the Samsung folding phone is 1500 euros and it goes on sale on February 14 in Spain.
