Ice Universe: Samsung Galaxy Flip5 to have much larger external screen, Fold5 to drop the gap
With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S23 series already in the rearview mirror, we can move on to the second major Samsung flagship launch of the year – the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5. Reliable tipster IceUniverse shared some preliminary specs for the upcoming foldables.
The big news for the Z Flip5 is the larger external screen, which is said to come in at 3.4 inches diagonally. If true, it will actually be larger than the Oppo N2 Flip’s 3.26-inch panel, and it will boast a claimed 1:1,038 aspect ratio – a near-perfect square. The internal display is said to boast narrower bezels and will take a new waterdrop-style hinge to help hide its creases.
Moving on to the Galaxy Z Fold5, we get new confirmation that it will retain the 6.2-inch cover screen from its predecessor. The device will be 0.2mm narrower than its predecessor, but it will also use a teardrop hinge like the Z Flip5 to help hide its fold and eliminate the gap when closed. The Fold5 will be thinner than its predecessor at 13.xmm when folded, compared to 15.8mm on the Z Fold4. It will also be a lighter device at 254 grams.
Both upcoming foldable devices will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen2 for Galaxy chipset and will bring IPX8 waterproofing.
