But let’s see where it comes from.
While we patiently wait for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 to make its grand unveiling, some unofficial renders of the foldable have surfaced online. These are third-party renderings, based on information from various sources that has been leaked so far.
Images courtesy of the well-known leak maker OnLeaks (opens in a new tab) and Smartprice (opens in a new tab), and they show a phone that looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Fold 4 that was released last year. It looks like there won’t be any massive design changes this time around.
That’s partly to be expected: there aren’t that many ways to design a foldable phone, really. One change is to the rear camera module, where the flash has been moved to the side of the camera lenses instead of sitting below it.
Good morning #FutureSquad! Here’s your first look at the #Samsung #GalaxyZFold5 (360° video + stunning 5K rendering + dimensions)! On behalf of @Smartprix 👉🏻 https://t.co/CP8EVA9eQB pic.twitter.com/QAnWJtSOoBApril 29, 2023
What will be different, apparently, are the dimensions of the device. The Z Fold 5 apparently measures 154.9mm x 129.9mm x 6.3mm when unfolded, compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4’s 155.1mm x 130.1mm x 6.3mm.
When folded, the new phone is said to be a few millimeters thinner than its predecessor, thanks to the introduction of a waterdrop hinge that means both sides of the display will be able to fully extend into one another against the other
It looks like the biggest upgrade will be on the inside, as the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is rumored to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. According to the latest report, the Z Fold 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 could launch before the end of July.
Analysis: Design changes cost money
It always adds a little extra interest to a phone launch when there are significant design changes to talk about, but as we mentioned above, it’s hard to see too many ways to innovate when it comes to folding two slabs of glass and metal together . another.
Also, design changes cost money. If the Z Fold 5 is anything like the Z Fold 4, Samsung may already be able to use existing components and manufacturing lines to bring the phone to the masses.
When your profits have declined as quickly as Samsung’s over the past few months, it’s important to save money. Hopefully some of the savings will be passed on to consumers: the Z Fold 5 is rumored to cost the same as its predecessor (starting at $1,799 / £1,649 / AU$2,499).
It looks like we’ll have to wait until next year for the design of this foldable to be significantly different – the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will have a “significant change in form factor“, but what exactly it looks like remains to be seen. be seen
Leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 have elicited much buzz and hype among tech enthusiasts and industry insiders. Recent renders of the device show a familiar, foldable design, with a phone-cum-tablet form factor.
The device is expected to feature a 7.7 inch screen as its main panel and a 6.2-inch external screen, making for a truly integrated user experience. It is believed to be powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor, and feature a 5000 mAh battery and a refresh rate of 120Hz.
The leak hints at multiple cameras, with the main panel featuring a triple camera lens, and the external panel having a dual camera setup. It is also expected to feature the latest version of Samsung’s One UI, which would further improve the user experience.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is undoubtedly an exciting release, and industry insiders have expressed anticipation that the device will become a leader in this growing field of foldable technology.
