0 11

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.
