By the time Samsung launches its next set of flagships, we’ll probably know everything there is to know about them through leaks.
In a fresh leak, Weinbach reveals camera and charging details of Samsung’s new clamshell phone. He says that the Galaxy Z Flip will feature a dual 12MP primary camera setup; one wide and one ultra-wide sensor.
So Galaxy Z Flip. Capacitive fingerprint scanner on the side. Dual 12MP cameras, wide and ultra wide. 15W charging. Wireless charging and reverse wireless charging are supported.It will use “Samsung Ultra Thin Glass” which has crease. It will use a Dynamic AMOLED display.— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) January 23, 2020
We’ve previously heard that Samsung will use ultra thin glass on the display of the foldable phone. Now, Weinbach claims it’ll also have a crease at the point where the device folds shut.
He further says that the Galaxy Z Flip will facilitate 15W charging as well as wireless charging. It is also said to support reverse wireless charging to juice up other devices like the Galaxy Buds or the upcoming Galaxy Buds Plus.
The phone will apparently skip out on the trendy in-display fingerprint sensor. Instead, Weinbach says it’ll have a capacitive fingerprint scanner on the side.
A tiny second screen
Apart from the camera and charging details, Weinbach’s sources tell him that the Galaxy Z Flip will also have a second display upfront.
In his tweet, he writes that the second display could be 0.1-inch in size. However, he later corrects himself and says it’s possibly a 1-inch screen, which still makes it super tiny.
It will apparently show the charging status of the phone and double up as a viewfinder for the primary rear camera so you can take selfies with it.
The front display is 0.1″. You can use it to check charging speeds and battery info. It will also work as a view finder for the camera so you can use the better rear camera for selfies.— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) January 23, 2020
From what we’ve heard so far, the specs of the Galaxy Z Flip are pretty similar to the Galaxy S10e. The only major difference between the two seems to be the Flip’s foldable form factor.
