With just a day left for the official launch of Samsung S20, there are rumours that Samsung’s much awaited foldable phone – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip will be launched as well. If reports are meant to be true the specifications have already been leaked.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855+ Octa core processer with a robust RAM of 8 GB. The phone is rumoured to be equipped with three cameras, including dual cameras with 12 megapixel primary sensor, the third camera (the selfie one) would be 10 megapixel one. The phone’s display is expected to be 6.7 inches and will also have finger print sensor by the side. The variant is expected to be compatible with 5G.

In competition with Samsung, there is only one phone as of now – Motorola Razr. This foldable phone has two screens, one being 2.7 inch and the other one being 6.2 inches. The 2.7 inch one is a small panel while the other one is OLED. Powered by Snapdragon 710 SoC, this phone boasts of 2 cameras, one with 16 megapixel and the other one with 5 mega pixel. This phone has a price tag of $1500.00
It is worth noting that there are experts who are of opinion that this phone, the Motorola Razr couldn’t withstand the foldable test which was performed by CNet. It clearly did not work the way it was supposed to be. The phone reportedly gave up around 27000 folds, however, Samsung Galaxy Fold kept itself sturdy even after 120,000 folds. However, it was just an experiment and it in no way testifies any fact against the durability of the phone.
