Samsung has revealed its next-generation foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, will launch in China on August 10 with a starting price of ¥7,499. The new flip phone flagship touts an upgraded hinge, larger cover screen, and leading Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 platform.
As Samsung’s smallest folding smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 refines the compact flip form factor. New additions like the 3.4-inch external display aim to boost convenience and efficiency.
Refined Design With Nearly Seamless Fold
Samsung’s new-generation ultra-closing hinge allows the Z Flip 5 to fold completely flush, with almost no gap. This achieves a seamless, elegant look and feel when closed.
The Phone measures just 15.1mm thick folded and 6.9mm opened. Weight drops to an ultralight 187g, making it the thinnest and lightest Z Flip yet. These design upgrades enhance portability.
The hideaway hinge also enables a new flex mode for quickly capturing selfies at various angles hands-free. Durability improves as well for worry-free flips.
Upgraded Cover Screen With Folder Design
Besides refinements inside and out, the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s upgraded 3.4-inch external screen better complements the 6.7-inch internal foldable display.
The new cover screen has a unique folder aesthetic, expanding from 1.9 to 3.4 inches. This allows quickly glancing notifications, messages, and more without unfolding.
The folded phone shape on the cover screen creates a clean, differentiated look. The larger canvas also enables interactive widgets for at-a-glance info.
Leading Performance and Photography
Internally, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has elite specs, including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 2 chip, fast UFS 3.1 storage, a 3,700mAh battery, and 12MP dual rear cameras.
This powers effortless productivity and advanced capture capabilities like Nightography enhancements. IPX8 water resistance provides peace of mind when using the Z Flip 5 daily.
For those seeking a cutting-edge productivity companion, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 melds portability, convenience, and performance into an impressively refined package.
