Samsung introduces the new Flex Hinge for the Galaxy Z Fold5, addressing previous complaints about the gap between the two halves. The phone now closes flat, making it thinner with a closed thickness of 13.4mm. In addition, the weight of the Z Fold5 has been reduced by 10g, making it weigh 253g.
The Z Fold5 also boasts enhanced protection with Corning’s new Victus 2 on its cover display and rear panel. Rated IPX8 for submersion, the phone has undergone automated tests for IPX4, ensuring its resistance to spraying from nozzles.
While there is no built-in silo for the S Pen, Samsung introduces a new case design that is more compact, and the new S Pen itself is slimmer.
Although the cover and internal displays remain the same as last year, the peak brightness of the Z Fold5 has been boosted to 1,750 nits, with the high brightness mode aiming for 1,200 nits. This ensures a brighter and more vibrant viewing experience.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Z Fold5 features the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, offering significant improvements in single and multi-core performance compared to its predecessor.
The camera system of the Z Fold5 remains the same as last year, with a 50MP main sensor, 10MP telephoto camera, 12MP ultra-wide camera, 10MP selfie camera on the cover display, and a 4MP under-display camera.
The phone’s battery remains unchanged at 4,400mAh, but it has been optimized for power efficiency with the new chipset. This means longer battery life for users.
While these specifications offer a glimpse into the capabilities of the Galaxy Z Fold5, detailed tests and reviews will provide more insights and answers regarding the phone’s performance and overall capabilities.
For gadget enthusiasts and Samsung fans, the introduction of the Galaxy Z Fold5 with its new Flex Hinge, slim design, improved protection, and enhanced performance is certainly exciting news. Stay tuned for further updates and opinions as more information about the phone becomes available.
