We haven’t heard much about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2 yet, but a leak has now highlighted a few potential features that suggest it could be bigger and better than the original Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
Leaker @chunvn8888 posted on Twitter that they’re “100% confident” the Galaxy Z Flip 2 has a bigger outer screen than the 1.1-inch display on the original Galaxy Z Flip, plus a bigger battery than the original’s 3,300mAh one, an upgraded hinge, and new UTG (Ultra Thin Glass).
The original Galaxy Z Flip already has a UTG display, so it’s not clear exactly what will be changed for the next model, but perhaps it will be more durable, or the screen won't have a crease at the fold – that’s just speculation though.
- The Motorola Razr 5G is a major rival
- There are a growing number of foldable phones
- The Samsung Galaxy S30 is also on the way
As of now (September 2020)100% confident:- bigger outer display- new UTG - Upgraded hinge- bigger batteryA bit concerned:- high refresh rate displayUnconfirmed:- specs (screen size, chipset, cam)- design#ZFlip2September 16, 2020
The source adds that they’re "a bit concerned" about whether the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2 will have a high refresh rate on its screen – the original Flip doesn’t, but the pricier Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 does.
Finally, they note that they’re not yet sure of the specs or design. So there’s a lot left for us to learn, even if this leaker right about the things they've mentioned – and as ever with leaks, we’d take all of this with a pinch of salt, especially as the source doesn’t have as lengthy a track record as some leakers.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2 probably won’t land for a while yet, as the original Flip landed in February, and an upgraded Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G was announced in July, so we could be looking at either early or mid-2021 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 2, assuming Samsung sticks to a yearly release schedule.
We’d expect plenty more leaks and rumors to emerge in the meantime, so stay tuned for all the updates.
