After the launch of Samsung‘s all-new Galaxy S23 flagship series, Samsung’s next target would be its foldable flagship devices which Samsung will launch in the middle of the year or in July or August. However, the company seems to have started working on it as the leaks are coming.
This morning, the famous blogger @Ice Universe (on Weibo) confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold5 would adopt the waterdrop hinge structure, and there would be no gap after folding the device.
Previously, it was highly rumored that the new waterdrop hinge structure would be the main highlight of Galaxy Z Fold5; even some concept images were also revealed (from CES 2023). However, the query got solved today.
In addition, the blogger also mentioned that the device’s thickness would be 13.x (mm) in the folded state. The previous model Galaxy Z Fold4 has a thickness of 14.2-15.8 mm in the folded state which hints that the newer model would also be improved in terms of dimensions.
In terms of specifications, we expect the new Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s upcoming flagship chipset, the overclocked/improved Snapdragon 8 Gen2.
Previously, it was also rumored that the camera specifications on Galaxy Z Fold5 would also be upgraded. There would be total three lenses: 108MP Primary lens, a 64MP telephoto lens (with 2x zoom), and a 12MP ultra-wide lens.
Currently, the information regarding Samsung’s upcoming foldable flagship models is very minimal.
