The Galaxy Z Flip 5G sports the Mystic Bronze color option, which the Galaxy Note 20 is also expected to offer, according to a separate leak. The vertical orientation of the video suggests that it is promotional material designed to be watched on smartphones.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G looks identical to the Galaxy Z Flip, the LTE version released earlier this year, but according to XDA Developer’s Max Weinbach, there will be a very minimal change to its measurements.

Oh, also dimensions change a negligible amount. It's 0.5mm thicker than the current flip and 0.1mm taller

The only significant change in the Galaxy Z Flip 5G compared with the Galaxy Z Flip, aside from the 5G support, may be found inside, according to Weinbach, specifically an upgraded Snapdragon processor. The predecessor was powered by the Snapdragon 855+.

So for the Z Flip 5G, the ONLY part that changes is the SoC. It's the Snapdragon 865+. The cameras stay the same at 12MP and 12MP. Same sensors too. Display is the same. Software is One UI 2.5 which is mostly unchanged. Hole is the same size. Battery is the same size.
