Today, Samsung has finally unveiled its highly anticipated flagships for the second half of the year; yes, it is none other than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 & the Galaxy Z Fold5, the next iteration of its Flip & Fold lineups at Samsung Unpacked event in its home turf South Korea.
The company also unveiled the next iteration of its Smartwatch & Tablets, i.e., The Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 series & Galaxy Tab S9 series, at the event.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the Design & Specifications of the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 flagship device from the South Korean Giant!
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 Design
The All-new Galaxy Z Flip5 has an identical design language as its predecessor. However, there are two major changes that differentiate it from the Z Flip4, i.e., the Flex Hinge & Flex Window.
Well, the company has finally fixed two of the major drawbacks of the Z Flip devices, i.e., the large gap that was there when it was closed and the small cover display on the front.
The cover display still retains its weird shape and is not corner-to-corner like the one we saw on the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra.
The all-new Flex hinge features a dual rail form that helps in dissipating external force such as fumbles & drops. With the Flex Hinge design, there’s no gap left when it closes, which in turn has made the device thinner than its predecessor.
The rest of the Z Flip5 is unchanged, with a large inside display when opened with minimal bezels & a front-facing camera.
The Power button & volume rockers are on the right, Type-C port & Speaker grill at the bottom. As for the Back, there’s a dual rear camera with LED flash & the Samsung branding on the Hinge.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 features a large cover display which Samsung calls Flex Window. The large cover display is a 3.4-inch AMOLED display, bigger than the Z Flip 4, which had a 1.9-inch cover display.
The cover display has a 720 x 748-pixel resolution & 60Hz refresh rate and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2.
As the Flex Window is bigger, users can engage with Widgets, such as checking stocks, weather, clock & more. The user can reply to messages on a Full Querty keyboard. Also, users can now access Samsung Wallets to access payment services & more.
There’s also a multi widgets option that allows the users to quickly look at them & switch between them with the pinch zoom gesture. The larger cover display also works as a better viewfinder for taking selfies with the dual rear cameras.
The Main display is a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a FullHD Plus resolution & adaptive 120hz refresh rate.
The Flagship Flip is powered by the overclocked version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 found in the Galaxy S23 series, coupled with 8GB RAM with 256/512GB, and runs on Oneui based on Android 13.
The Z Flip 5 comes in four color options – Lavender, Mint, Cream, and Graphite and as always, the handset comes in four more colorways that are exclusive to the company’s online store – Green, Blue, Grey, and Yellow.
Coming to the optics, there’s a dual rear camera setup at the back; the dual rear cameras remain the same as found on the Z Flip4.
There’s a 12MP main sensor with Dual Autofocus, f/1.8 aperture with Optical Image Stabilization, and a 12MP Ultra-wide lens with a 123-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture.
The front camera is inside the main display & is a 10MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture.
There’s no change in terms of the battery capacity on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 as it has the same 3,700mAh battery with 25W fast charging, which isn’t fast as per today’s standard, though, and there’s support for 15W wireless charging. The device is IPX8 rated & has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
