The foldable and clamshell nature of the Samsung phone that may launch as the Galaxy Z Flip seems to have been confirmed in a few recent leaks. Now, a new one purports to outline its performance and specs as well. This next-gen device may be powered by the Snapdragon 855 - or 855+ - and run Android 10 with 8GB of RAM.

Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip as its second foldable phone at its upcoming flagship launch. This event will take place on February 11, 2020 - or just over a week from now. It may unveil a clamshell phone that, like the new Motorola Razr, opens to reveal a flexible screen. This phone may have similar internals to that of a 2019 premium device, a point that may be corroborated in the Z Flip's latest leak.

This new potential spoiler comes in the form of a new Geekbench 5 listing for a "samsung SM-F700N", a novel model number that may refer to the upcoming foldable. The leak gets more plausible as one goes through its contents: it is described as running Android 10, having 8GB of RAM and a processor listed as "msmnile".

This is the Snapdragon 855's well-known code-name, and can also refer to its variant the 855 Plus. The "SM-F700N" also has 1 set of results on this benchmark that match up quite well to a Galaxy S10 also found on this system. This hints at a version of One UI that is well-optimized for its form-factor. Therefore, the Z Flip may be reassuring responsive when its next-gen activation method is used.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
