Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G launched with Snapdragon 865+
Samsung launched the Galaxy Z Flip alongside the Galaxy S20 Series in February this year & today, we got the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G. As the name suggests, Samsung has upgraded the Z Flip by adding 5G support, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset. So after the Legion Duel gaming phone by Lenovo, this is the second device to launch today with the Snapdragon 865+.
To no surprise, this phone doesn’t come cheap. The phone is priced at $1,449.9 & interestingly, Samsung didn’t bump the price too much from the initial $1,380 starting price of the Galaxy Z Flip 4G.
