Samsung decided to remove a produce from its list for the August 5 Unpacked event and went ahead to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Though it’s not a surprise as that has been known to us for weeks now.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G of course comes with almost the same hardware as that of the Galaxy Z Flip, except that it gets a new Snapdragon 865+ chipset with a 5G modem, and two new colors – Mystic Bronze and Mystic Grey.

The rest specs is mostly unchanged – the 5G model is 0.1mm thicker at the hinge and weighs the same 183g. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G has a 6.7-inch 2636x1080px folding Dynamic AMOLED screen inside and a 1.1-inch 300x112px Super AMOLED cover display on the outside.

There are two cameras on the outside – a 12MP regular snapper with f/1.8 aperture and a 12MP ultrawide with an f/2.2 aperture. Inside sits a 10MP f/2.4 selfie camera with autofocus.

The One UI 2.1 running on the Galaxy Z Flip 5G brings a few exclusive features to take advantage of the form factor, like Flex Mode, which splits some apps in two – like showing the camera viewfinder on the top half of the screen and the controls on the bottom.
