The projected 2021 upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hint that this upcoming clamshell foldable will have a improved display and design compared to its forebear. Then again, a new leak suggests it will also stick with the underwhelming battery capacity of yesteryear.

The next-gen Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is currently touted to represent a potentially significant upgrade over its 5G predecessor, not the least as it might step up to a 120Hz display for its vertically-folding AMOLED display. However, it now seems the OEM may not have paid the same alleged attention to what will power this putative cutting-edge display.

SamMobile claims to have found certifications for a battery solution for this Z Flip 2 (or possibly 3, so as to fall in line with the Galaxy Z Fold3) on the 3C, DEKRA and SafetyKorea regulatory databases. Or rather, it would be more accurate to say the blog has found evidence of new Samsung batteries, and now proposes they belong to the second-gen Z Flip due to their continguous model numbers.

These power-packs - the EB-BF711ABY and EB-BF712ABY - might indeed incorporate the "Z Flip 2021's" own identifier, SM-F711, and might be intended to fit in either half of the phone. They are of 2 different shapes, not to mention capacities: about 2,300mAh and 903mAh respectively. This adds up to ~3,300mAh: same as the Galaxy Z Flip.

Therefore, its successor may not get much better screen-on time results than this original clamshell foldable. For context, its battery is the same size as that of the 2016 flagship OnePlus 3T. Nevertheless, the Z Flip 3 is touted to have updated looks and performance, at least.
