  • The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G has been certified by Bluetooth SIG.
  • Model numbers listed are aligned with previous leaks.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G in August, and we’ve seen several leaks regarding each foldable. Now, it seems like the latest device is one step closer to reality.

The foldable cover just went through the Bluetooth SIG website, and most listings explicitly call the Galaxy Z Flip 5G device.

The listings also contain model numbers, namely: SM-F707B, SM-F707N, SM-F707U, SM-F707U1, SM-F707U_SPR, SM-F707W, and SM-F7070. These numbers are broadly in line with previous leaks.

It is also interesting to note that one of the listings calls ‘Bloom-X’. For what it’s worth, Bloom was the code name for the 4G-enabled Galaxy Z Flip.

Otherwise, all listings indicate that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will support Bluetooth 5.0. This would be in line with the 4G model, which offered Bluetooth 5.0 despite the chipset supporting Bluetooth 5.1. Hopefully this is just a placeholder and the new foldable also supports Bluetooth 5.1.

We hope that Samsung’s next foldable foldable will be largely identical to the original model. But hopefully the phone includes a much bigger battery and faster charging, as these were the two main issues that David Imel had in his Galaxy Z Flip review. Battery capacity will be doubly important with the inclusion of 5G, which tends to consume more power in the first place.
