Samsung is currently believed to have a 5G version of its Galaxy Z Flip in the works. Several new listings on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) website confirm this, overtly naming multiple versions of the same device in these terms. One of them has also gained a certification to use NFC.

It is looking increasingly like Samsung will release a second version of its Galaxy Z Flip alongside the Note 20 series and Fold 2 this year. However, some benchmarking results suggest that there will not be much new tech in this clamshell foldable - in fact, it may just be the original Z Flip all over again, just with 5G and the Snapdragon 865 SoC this time.

Some new leaks reveal that it will also have Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, as before. It is now certified to use both, thanks to official documentation that also inadvertently confirms its product name in some cases.

The Bluetooth SIG listings in question also reveal quite a number of variants for the phone. They are SM-F707B; SM-F707N; SM-F707W; SM-F707U; SM-F707U1; SM-F707U_SPR and SM-F7070.

All of these model numbers are associated with the name Galaxy Z Flip 5G - with the exception of one (SM-F707B), which, oddly, goes by "Bloom-X ALL NRM" instead. Another variant, the SM-F707U, is the one spotted on the NFC certification website. Therefore, it now seems the refreshed clamshell phone is indeed all ready to launch, and probably in multiple markets to boot.

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.
