Everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

Don't mistake it for origami class—no folding cranes here

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold is the definition of Hey, I'm a compact smartphone to Ta-da! I'm a tablet now. The Z Fold series took a sip of a growth potion and is now ready for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. 

Ahead of the Galaxy Unpacked event in July, popular tipster Yogesh Brar has shared comprehensive details about the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. The leaked information indicates that the device may not see significant hardware upgrades. Let's dive into the revealed features and specifications of the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

According to the leak, while the foldable phone may bear a resemblance to its predecessor, there are expected to be a few incremental upgrades such as an updated processor. Samsung is set to introduce its custom-developed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 System-on-Chip (SoC) for the Galaxy Z Fold 5, which is also utilised in the Galaxy S23 series.

The Geekbench listing shared by SmartPrice also spills some juicy details about its SoC! It seems like this phone is sharing the same clock speed as its flagship sibling, the Galaxy S23 series, strutting around with a prime core ticking at 3.36GHz, four performance cores flexing at 2.8GHz, and three efficiency cores keeping it cool at 2.02GHz. 

Brar revealed Samsung is also about to let loose a storage bonanza too. You'll have choices from a respectable 256GB to a roomy 512GB, and for the ultimate storage hoarders, and even a jaw-dropping 1TB option! Imagine having a personal black hole for all your apps, photos, and secret cat videos.

The smartphone is expected to have a 7.6in QXGA+ AMOLED foldable display that unfolds like a canvas, accompanied by a 6.2in cover display for quick glances and on-the-go antics. Reports suggest that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be sporting a water drop notch, designed to minimise the visibility of that infamous crease.

Ice Universe also shared some leaked info via tweet, according to which the Galaxy Z Fold 5 seems to remain loyal to its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in terms of design barring a couple of tweaks. Like the hinge design, which aims to reduce the gap between the panels when folded, creating a more flat experience. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is rumoured to receive an IPX8 rating for water resistance, making it a companion that can withstand the occasional splash or unexpected rain shower.

When it comes to photography, the Z Fold 5 is expected to boast a triple-camera setup. Prepare yourself for a 50MP main camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) support, a 12MP ultra-wide camera that captures the grandeur of your surroundings, and a 10MP telephoto camera for zooming in on those precious moments.
