Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip will feature an ultra thin foldable glass screen
The Galaxy S20 isn’t the only device family set to launch next month. Samsung’s readying its second generation foldable phone to join the Galaxy Fold.
Dubbed the Galaxy Z Flip, more of the phone’s specifications were revealed by XDA’s Max Weinbach on Tuesday.
The Galaxy Flip Z has a 3300 mAh battery. Along with the Snapdragon 855, this should be pretty ok in everything. About the same battery live as the mid size S10.

According to Weinbach, the foldable will feature 3300mAh battery capacity.
That’s smaller than the Galaxy Fold’s 4310mAh but substantially larger than the vertically-folding Motorola RAZR’s 2500mAh power brick — the phone it’s really competing against.
Speaking of which, while the RAZR sports a modest Snapdragon 710 chipset, the Galaxy Z Flip will reportedly arrive with a Snapdragon 855, early 2019’s flagship chipset.
It’s also clear that Samsung’s learnt from its troubled Galaxy Fold display.
Instead of a layer of plastic, the Z Flip’s display will feature a thin layer of glass — dubbed Ultra Thin Glass — beneath it. It’ll lend both durability and rigidity to the phone’s screen.
Expect Samsung to unveil its new foldable smartphone next month, possibly alongside the S20 family.
