Earlier this month, leaker Max Weinbach had claimed that Samsung's next foldable phone will feature an ultra-thin glass display with a protective plastic layer on top. In a series of new tweets, Weinbach has revealed a few more interesting details regarding the foldable phone's display as well as other tech specs.

As per Weinbach's latest tweets, the Galaxy Z Flip will feature a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display panel with "Samsung Ultra Thin Glass" and a 20:9 aspect ratio. As suggested by the leaked live images of the phone, the Galaxy Z Flip's display will have a crease in the middle. Thanks to the use of 'ultra thin' glass, however, its display could perhaps be slightly more durable than the plastic displays on the Galaxy Fold and Motorola's new RAZR.
The phone will also have a tiny secondary display, measuring just 1.0-inch diagonally. In addition to showing battery info and other notifications, it will work as a viewfinder when using the rear cameras for capturing selfies.
Under the hood, Samsung's upcoming foldable phone will apparently be powered by the Snapdragon 855+ and not the Snapdragon 855 as previously rumored. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, which has a total of six cameras, the Galaxy Z Flip is said to feature a dual-camera setup at the back, with two 12MP sensors. As suggested by previous leaks, the phone will support 15W fast charging and will also support wireless as well as reverse wireless charging.
This sounds like it will be ten times better for those of us that consume a lot of video content (Netflix, Holy, Plex, etc).
Maybe cheaper than the 15oo.oo Lenovorola wants?
If this is below 1000 bucks this could be my next phone.
The Moto Rzer caught my interest but I will not pay 1500 for it. If Sammy comes in with decent price I'll definitely be jumping from my S10+
