Surprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip did not make an appearance during the local launch of the new S20 series on 12 February. However, a recent discovery by NextRift has revealed that Malaysia will be receiving Samsung’s new foldable phone after all.
NextRift reports that SIRIM had granted certification to the Galaxy Z Flip, bearing the model number SM-F700F, on its E-ComM page. Surprisingly, the phone was approved on 31 January 2020, ahead of the S20 series which received their certifications later in early February.
To quickly recap, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip features a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED FHD+ foldable screen, a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, 8GB RAM, 256GB interal storage, and a battery capacity of 3300mAh. The phone also features an external dual 12MP camera setup and a 10MP internal selfie camera.
The company’s second foldable phone is priced at US$1380 (~RM5702) in certain regions and is available in Mirror Black, Gold and Purple colours. Samsung Malaysia has yet to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip’s local release date and pricing.
