We all know that Samsung is working on its upcoming foldable flagship devices, including the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5. Even a few days before, both models were listed on 3C Certification, which hints that Samsung has almost completed the design phase. Recently, another major leak regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 5 got revealed.
This afternoon, the famous blogger @Ice Universe (on Weibo) revealed the dimensions and body weight of Galaxy Z Fold 5, showing that Samsung has reduced the device’s thickness and weight a bit.
As revealed by the blogger, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have the following dimensions: 154.9*129.9*6.1mm in the unfolded state. Compared with Galaxy Z Fold4 (dimensions: 155.1*130.1*6.3mm), all factors, including the device’s length, width, and thickness, have been reduced by 0.2mm in the unfolded state.
In the folded state, the device has the following dimensions: 154.9*67.1*13.4mm. Compared with Galaxy Z Fold4, the length difference is still 0.2mm, and the width is the same as in Galaxy Z Fold4. However, the thickness is reduced by 0.8-2.4mm (Galaxy Z Fold4 Dimensions in the folded state: 155.1*130.1*14.2-15.8mm).
In terms of weight, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 weighs about 254g which is 9g less if compared with Galaxy Z Fold4 (having 263g weight). In the end, the blogger also mentioned that the inner and outer screen sizes would remain the same, i.e., 6.2 inches of external screen and 7.6 inches of internal screen.
The specifications information regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is relatively minimal. However, it is known that it would be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen2 chipset. The chipset is based on 4nm TSMC’s 2nd Generation manufacturing process and features the all-new Cortex-X3 Ultra-Core (clocked @3.36GHz).
As per reports, Samsung will start the mass production of Galaxy Z Fold 5 at the beginning of June, while the launch event for this device is expected to take place at the end of July 2023.
