Samsung introduced new foldable devices Galaxy Z, Fold 5 and Flip 5, at the traditional summer presentation.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 did not change a lot. The key difference is a new joint, ridding of the gap between the two parts of the device when it’s folded. Camera block got slightly redesigned, and the position of the flash has changed.
What’s inside: 7,6´ inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display 2176×1812 (374 PPI), 120 HZ, peak brightness 1750 nits, a 6.2-inch matrix with a resolution of 2316x904 (402 PPI), covered by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset, as in the Galaxy S23 range, is responsible for the RAM — 12 GB, the storage — up to 1 TB. The cameras have not changed — apparently, these are all the same modules: the main on50 Mp, ultra wide on 12 Mp, «telephoto lens» on 10 Mp with 3x Zoom and two front cameras on 10 Mp and 4 Mp (under the internal display).
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 got a new external AMOLED 3,4 inch display (versus 1,9 inch in the previous model) with 748×720 dimension (306 PPI) and 60 Hz frequency. Thanks to the bigger size, it became more functional: there are plenty of widgets, notification features and a synchronization with Galaxy Watch 6.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 uses a new joint and a processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy as well. The memory capacity in the basic version reached up to 256 GB, RAM remained the same (8 GB).
The internal screen did not change - the diagonal is 6.7 inch with a frequency of 120 Hz. The cameras are the same: two modules of 12 MP. Only the internal 10-megapixel selfie camera has increased the diaphragm from f/2.4 to f/2.2.
Starting price for the gadget is $999. Sales start on August 11th.
