Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be Powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC, Geekbench Listing Reveals

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be identical to the Galaxy Z Flip, except that the upcoming phone will feature 5G connectivity and Snapdragon 865 SoC.


Samsung’s first clamshell foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip, made its debut in February this year. While the foldable phone offers a bunch of interesting features given its form factor, it misses out on a core feature that is in demand nowadays, the 5G cellular connectivity. Well, the brand is said to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy Z Flip to cater to the customers who demand 5G. The Galaxy Z Flip has been leaked multiple times so far. These leaks reveal that the model number of the smartphone is SM-707B and that the phone will feature 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and 15W fast charging. Today, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has been leaked once again. This time through Geekbench.

As you can see in the screenshot above, the Geekbench listing if for the model number SM-F707B, which, we know from the previous leaks, is the Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

The Geekbench listing shows that the phone runs on an octa-core processor from Qualcomm that has a clock frequency of 1.8GHz. While the listing doesn’t mention the processor name, it does say that the phone has ‘Kona’ motherboard, confirming that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G has Snapdragon 865 processor. While there had been leaks earlier suggesting that the phone might feature SD865, this Geekbench listing of the smartphone is our first confirmation that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will indeed come with the flagship chipset from Qualcomm. The listing also reveals that the phone has 8GB of RAM and Android 10 operating system.

The powerful hardware has helped Galaxy Z Flip 5G achieve 970 points in the single-core test and 3,220 points in the multi-core test in Geekbench 5.2.0. Brands usually test a smartphone on Geekbench once their development is complete, which means that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is ready to make the limelight.
