  • A new leak confirms rumors of Samsung using bendable glass for its Razr competitor
  • The new glass display has fewer wrinkles and is flatter than plastic display covers
  • Samsung hasn't confirmed these leaks yet

A new leak confirms earlier claims about Samsung using a foldable glass display for its upcoming Razr competitor, the Galaxy Z Flip.

Previous reports revealed that Samsung's upcoming clamshell smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, will feature a foldable glass display. The information came from noted tipster Ice Universe, who tweeted that “It can be confirmed that the Galaxy Fold2 leaked not long ago will use an ultra-thin glass cover for the first time in the world, replacing plastic materials.”

This glass cover, the leaker said, is “ flatter” than plastic and has “less wrinkles” compared to the plastic display covers used in other foldable devices, including the Galaxy Fold – which is known for the notorious crease in the screen, among others.

Now, another leak coming from XDA Developers' Max Weinbach claims that the Galaxy Z Flip will use glass instead of plastic for its folding display. In a tweet, the XDA TV host said the upcoming device will feature “Samsung Ultra Thin Glass” atop a Dynamic AMOLED display panel.

Weinbach also said the Galaxy Z Flip will feature a capacitive fingerprint reader on the side, as well as a dual-camera setup featuring a wide angle and ultra-wide angle lens. He added that the upcoming device will feature 15W fast charging, and that it can be charged using wired and wireless charging methods. He added that according to a source, the Galaxy Z Flip looks like a foldable Galaxy S10e.

Other features

Weinbach's tweets come as confirmations of previous leaks about the new device. A recent leak, coming from a rising leakster, revealed that the Galaxy Z Flip will feature a 6.7-inch dynamic AMOLED screen, use a 12MP camera as main shooter and a 10MP sensor for selfies, and will have either a 3,300 mAh or 3,500 mAh battery.

Previous reports also revealed that the Galaxy Z Flip will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, come with 256GB of internal storage, feature Samsung's One UI 2.1, and be sold for a very attractive price lower than the Motorola's $1,500 asking price for the new Razr reboot.

That said, Samsung hasn't officially unveiled the Galaxy Z Flip yet. Fans are advised to stay tuned for more updates, or to wait for the Korean tech giant to unveil the device next month.
