Samsung’s upcoming flagship foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, will reportedly feature a “droplet” style hinge that will reduce its display crease. The tech giant internally refers to the design as a “dumbbell” hinge, according to tipster Ice Universe, reports 9to5Google. This will not be the first time that the company has updated its design. For example, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 offered a special brush for dust protection over the original Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 employs a new hinge design as well.
The tipster also claimed that the new Z Fold 5 is expected to feature water resistance along with a new hinge. The report states that the company is expected to release the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in August this year.
Galaxy Z Fold 5 Specifications:
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a thickness of 6.5 mm instead of 6.3 mm like the Galaxy Z Fold 4. The device will feature a 7.6-inch foldable display that will offer a resolution of 1768 x 2208 pixels. The outer and inner displays of the Z Fold 5 will be protected by Gorilla Glass Victus.
In terms of specifications, the smartphone will come with a 108-megapixel main camera with f/1.7 aperture, OIS, and dual-pixel PDAF. There will be a 64-megapixel telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom and a 12-megapixel camera for ultra-wide shots. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be powered by the Snapdragon 985, which means it may not feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, which powers the Galaxy S23 series.
Meanwhile, Samsung has confirmed that its first Galaxy Unpacked event for 2023 will take place on February 1 and the company will unveil the Galaxy S23 series of smartphones, among other things, during the event.
