Galaxy Fold 5
  • Leaked image of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5 showcases potential “water drop” hinge design and reduced gap when closed.
  • Notable changes include the relocation of the camera flash and a slimmer screen bezel.
  • Expected specifications feature unchanged screen sizes, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, triple rear camera setup, and versatile front-facing camera.

In an unexpected leak that has sent waves of excitement through the tech community, an alleged official image of Samsung’s highly anticipated flagship foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, has surfaced online. While the complete unveiling is slated for Samsung’s forthcoming Unpacked event in Korea next month, the leaked image provides a tantalizing glimpse into the Z Fold 5’s features, as well as its prospects for competing against Google’s Pixel Fold and Motorola’s next Razr.

The leaked image has ignited particular interest due to its portrayal of a potential “water drop” style hinge, aimed at minimizing the visible crease on the unfolded screen and allowing the phone to close almost completely flat, maintaining the durability of its predecessor. Furthermore, the image suggests that the Z Fold 5 may exhibit a reduced gap when closed, distinguishing it from the Galaxy Z Fold 4 reviewed last year. Samsung Display has also showcased a prototype featuring a slim hinge capable of folding inward and outward, hinting at further advancements that could be on the horizon.

In addition, the leaked image reveals a subtle but noticeable alteration in the placement of the camera flash, which has been shifted away from the camera bump on the rear. The screen bezel appears to be slimmer, adding to the device’s aesthetic appeal.

Rumored specifications indicate that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will maintain the same screen sizes as its predecessors. The exterior cover is expected to sport a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display, while the interior will boast a larger 7.6-inch QHD+ display. Powering the device is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, already found in the Galaxy S23 phones. Other anticipated features include a 4,400mAh battery supporting 45W fast charging and 25W wireless charging, a triple rear camera setup with a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 10MP telephoto camera. Additionally, the Z Fold 5 is speculated to offer a 12MP front-facing camera, usable in both open and closed positions.

Enthusiasts who yearn for a versatile phone-tablet combo tailored for multitasking are eagerly awaiting the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s official release. However, this time, Samsung’s device will face formidable competition from the likes of the Z Flip 5, also anticipated to debut at the upcoming Unpacked event, as well as the long-awaited Google Pixel Fold and Motorola’s next Razr.
