A photo posted by MySmartPrice (via SamMobile) shows the Samsung Z Fold 5 which was to be revealed during Samsung’s Unpacked event in Korea in July. The image of the phone gives us quite a few clues about what the phone will be about. Let’s discuss the small changes that are visible in the images.
First of all, the flash has moved off the camera bump. You can see it beside the camera bump towards the top. The three camera setup has been retained from the previous model, Z Fold 4. Other than that, the phone looks flatter than the earlier model when folded. Rumor has it that the new phone is getting a tear-drop style hinge to reduce the gap between the two sides of the fold and to avoid the creasing of the screen where the phone is folded. The screen bezel also looks thinner than those on the Z Fold 4.
The Z Fold 5 is definitely making the foldable phones more reliable and poised for longer usage. The inclination towards making the phones flatter when folded also hints at the company’s eagerness to capture a larger customer base. Most important, unlike the previous foldable phones, this one is going to have some serious competition with the Pixel Fold and Motorola Razr about to land. In fact, Lenovo probably has its prototype ready for rollable phones and laptops.
The specs on the Z Fold 5 will supposedly be at par with those of Z Fold 4 with a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display on the outside cover and a 7.6-inch QHD+ display on the inside. It will feature the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for Galaxy and a 4,400 mAh battery. You’ll have a 50 MP main camera, 12 MP ultrawide camera, 10 MP telephoto camera, and a 12 MP front-facing camera.
