Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G name confirmed in online certification


These days, it's easy for a product's existence to be confirmed when it starts going through certification. As it is, recent leaks have strongly hinted that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G is real. But now a new certification has confirmed the name for the device.

According to XDA Developers, a Samsung device with the product code SM-F707B corresponds with the name "Galaxy Z Flip 5G". Considering that the Galaxy Z Flip has the code SM-F700, this is a confirmation that the device is real. Also, this means that news of this device launching at the Samsung Unpacked event on 5 August 2020 is quite likely to be true now.

Since it's going to be a 5G device, one of the points of speculation is the chipset being used. The Galaxy Z Flip launched earlier this year had an older Snapdragon 855+ chipset, which doesn't come with 5G support. To provide the 5G connectivity, it could either be using the Snapdragon 865 chipset - that comes paired with the X55 5G modem - or just add a standalone 5G modem.

There's still a lot that hasn't been confirmed about the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, but more details are likely to be unveiled in the coming weeks. With that said, what do you think about the news?
