Samsung adds Galaxy Z Flip to 5G lineup

Samsung Electronics Singapore announced the introduction of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G to its portfolio of 5G-capable devices available in Singapore. The smartphone will deliver enhanced mobile experiences with ultra-fast 5G speeds as 5G networks rolled out progressively in Singapore.

The stylish and compact Galaxy Z Flip is really very innovative, not just in the way the flip form factor enabled Samsung to create a ‘make-up case’ compact smartphone, but also in the innovative manner that the folding touchscreen delivers content and enhances user experience. With 5G, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G adds lightning-fast speed downloads and uploads and will come in Samsung’s latest two premium colours (first announced with the Galaxy Note20) – Mystic Gray and Mystic Bronze – all encased in glass with a haze finish that is soft to the touch while minimising fingerprints.

“Samsung remains committed to putting the power of 5G in the hands of Singaporeans who want to be at the forefront of technology evolution and experience ultra-fast 5G speeds with telecommunication operators. With the addition of Galaxy Z Flip 5G to our portfolio of 5G devices, we hope to be able to offer a wide range of options for consumers who are considering the leap to 5G. Users can look forward to accelerated download times, as well as more reliable and seamless video calls – wherever they are,” said Sarah Chua, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

Galaxy Z Flip 5G adds to Samsung’s current Galaxy 5G portfolio, which includes the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Note20 5G/Note20 Ultra 5G, S20 Ultra 5G, S20 FE 5G and Tab S7+ 5G. Samsung added the components necessary to bring 5G connectivity to life while maintaining the Galaxy Z Flip’s sleek, bold form factor for ultimate portability, which makes this device one of the most stylish and compact 5G foldable smartphones now available.

To deliver on its 5G vision, Samsung has partnered telecommunication operator Singtel to demonstrate the early benefits of 5G to consumers. Singtel is the first in Singapore to harness the 3.5Hz spectrum to deliver ultra-fast speeds at low latency and improved bandwidth.

Ms Gan Siok Hoon, Managing Director, Sales & Mobile Marketing, Consumer Singapore, Singtel, said, “We have seen encouraging take-up of our 5G services since the launch of our 5G network early last month. With Samsung’s line up of 5G-enabled devices clocking more than 1.2Gbps on our ultra-fast 5G network, customers can be assured of a high-performance 5G experience whether they are downloading movies or gaming on the go.”

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G Mobile Platform. This new platform maximises the power of 5G with revved up performance to deliver faster and more efficient on-device processing with sharper imagery through improved graphics rendering. Users can look forward to faster upload and download speeds, culminating in
better and more immersive live streaming, sharing and gaming experiences, in the palm of their hands.

Consumers can now get the best of the Galaxy Z Flip experience with the upgraded features found in the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, which will be available in Singapore from 31 October, Saturday at telecommunications operators (M1, Singtel and StarHub), Samsung Online Store, Samsung Experience Stores and major consumer electronics and IT stores including Best Denki, Challenger/Hachi, Courts, Gain City, Harvey Norman and KrisShop, at a recommended retail price of $1,998 (including GST).
