    Samsung's second foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, is about to be re-released in 5G flavor next month. The 5G variant follows the same formula set in place by the LTE model back in February, but even though both phones are very similar, they are differentiated by a few key features both inside and out.

    The most important change lies in a new silicon and obviously the inclusion of 5G connectivity. The LTE-enabled Galaxy Z Flip was released in February with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset in tow, but the Galaxy Z Flip 5G adopts the newer and more powerful Snapdragon 865+ Soc.

    Qualcomm's newer silicon has the same number of CPU cores but it uses an Adreno 650 GPU instead of an Adreno 640 graphics chip. The single high-performance CPU core operates at a peak frequency of 3.09GHz, and all things considered, the new Snapdragon 865+ chipset promises a 10% performance boost over the non-plus Snapdragon 865 solution.

    The few internal changes are reflected by new color options

    Aside from the new chipset and 5G connectivity, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has the same hardware specifications as the LTE model, including the same foldable 6.7-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and the same dual-battery with a combined capacity of 3,300mAh supplied by Samsung SDI.

    Now, since the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will look virtually the same as the LTE variant, Samsung decided to differentiate the two models through new color options. The original Galaxy Z Flip was released in Mirror Black, Mirror Purple, Mirror Gold, and the Thom Browne Edition, whereas the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be available in Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze. Additional color options could be made available later after release.
