Samsung may launch a 5G Galaxy Z Flip variant later this year: report

Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip back in February, but it appears the company is also planning to sell a 5G variant of the phone later this year.

This news comes from SamMobilealthough the publication doesn’t mention its source. Further, SamMobile doesn’t offer any extra details other than that the 5G variant will only be made available in select markets around the world where 5G networks are live. Canada is now technically one of these markets.

The Galaxy Z Flip only features a 3,300mAh battery, which is pretty small for a smartphone that supports 5G. With this in mind, Samsung may launch a Z Flip with a larger battery and enough room for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor and a 5G modem.

Exactly when or how much more the 5G version will cost is unclear. The current Galaxy Z Flip is priced at $1,819 CAD.
