Galaxy Z Fold 5 May Not Feature Desired Design Change, but Hope Lies with Galaxy Z Fold 6
Samsung is set to reveal its latest foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5, at an upcoming event in South Korea next month. These highly anticipated devices will hit the stores earlier than their predecessors, marking Samsung’s response to the growing competition in the foldable phone market. With various companies introducing their own foldable designs in international markets, Samsung has started to feel the pressure. Additionally, the upcoming Pixel Fold, which will deliver a Google-optimized version of Android, holds significant importance in the foldable landscape.
Leaks surrounding the new Samsung foldables suggest that the company has taken steps to address user concerns and stay competitive. Both the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 will feature design changes aimed at enhancing user experience. However, those anticipating a specific design change in the external display aspect ratio will have to wait for the Galaxy Z Fold 6.
Recent leaks indicate that Samsung has resolved a long-standing design compromise with the Fold and Flip series. The new waterdrop hinge design of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 will allow the devices to fold perfectly flat, eliminating the gap between the two halves of the screen that has been a minor annoyance for users.
