Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G, now official
Samsung recently announced the 5G version of its foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G.
The smartphone is the first one to be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G processor. This offers faster clock and WiFi speeds, as well as improves graphics. Although it retains the design from its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G features a haze finish that minimizes fingerprints and comes in two stunning colors: Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze.
Optimizing the flexibility of its screen, it now has a Flex mode which splits into two, 4-inch screens from top to bottom when it is free-standing. This provides controls on the lower part of the screen while the upper part allows users to watch content on YouTube or shoot photos and videos.
Among its other new features include Multi-Active Window for multitasking, seamless opening of two apps at once using App Pair, and Multi-window Tray.
