Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 5G has just picked up a permanent price drop. When it launched last year as a slightly refreshed version of the original Z Flip, it came with a price bump to $1,450. But in the wake of the S21 series launch, Samsung cut its entry-level foldable's price down to "just" $1,200 in a permanent adjustment.
Samsung has been testing its Android 11-based One UI 3.0 software for months, and now it looks like another device is beginning to receive its official stable channel update. Owners of the 5G-enabled Galaxy Z Flip might be getting an OTA treat just in time for the holidays.
In late August, Google updated its list of devices that support ARCore with an addition of 28 new phones including Google's brand-new Pixel 4a, the LG Velvet 5G, Moto G8 Power Lite and G Pro, Vivo X50 and X50 Pro, and Samsung Galaxy A20, A20s, A30s, and Z Flip 5G, among a whole lot more. This time, the company's once again topped up the list with eight more.
Samsung has just formally revealed a 5G-equipped successor to this winter's Galaxy Z Flip: The (obviously titled) Galaxy Z Flip 5G. Five months is a pretty fast turnaround for a sequel, but it brings the company's smallest foldable up to network parity with the Galaxy S20 as well as the upcoming Note20. In short, it's the same Galaxy Z Flip, but packing the latest internals and 5G support — sans mmWave.
