Rumors suggest that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 will address one of the biggest issues that plagued its predecessor. According to reports, the next-generation foldable phone will feature a significantly larger outer display than its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 4. In fact, the rumored size of the cover display on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is said to be even larger than the recently announced Oppo Find N2 Flip.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in August or September of this year, and details about their features and design are already beginning to surface. With the larger cover display, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is poised to offer users a more convenient and intuitive experience when using the device on the go.
A new leak has surfaced with exciting news for fans of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip series. According to the leak, the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 5 will feature a massive cover display, further confirming previous rumors about the device.
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 takes flip phone design to the next level with a huge cover display
The latest leak from tipster SuperRoader suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5’s cover display may be divided into two parts, with a smaller display located beside the dual-camera setup. This smaller display is expected to show the clock, battery charge level, and AR Emojis.
The larger portion of the cover display is rumored to be a 3.4-inch screen, spanning the rest of the phone’s front when it’s folded. Its aspect ratio is said to be 1:1.038, making it almost a square screen. This is expected to make it easier to interact with notifications, quick settings, and widgets without having to open the phone. Additionally, the larger cover display could serve as an improved camera viewfinder, providing a better preview of photos and videos.
It remains to be seen whether Samsung will allow full-fledged apps to be used on the cover display, but regardless, the addition of a larger and more functional display is sure to be a major selling point for the Galaxy Z Flip 5.
In addition to the massive cover display, the sides of the phone are said to be flat, which is a departure from the curved sides of its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Flip 4. This design change could provide a more modern and sleek look to the device. Furthermore, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is also expected to feature rounded corners. The combination of flat sides and rounded corners could give the phone a unique and distinctive appearance.
As we reported yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is expected to feature a waterdrop-shaped hinge that allows the device to fold completely flat, without any visible gap between the two halves. This is a significant upgrade over the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which had a noticeable gap between its two halves when folded.
Moreover, according to tipster IceUniverse (@UniverseIce), the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will retain its IPX8 rating for water resistance, which is great news for users who want to protect their phones from accidental spills or splashes. This also means that the phone will be able to withstand water submersion of up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. Another interesting detail that has emerged is that the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s inner display is expected to be narrower than its predecessor. The exact dimensions of the screen have not been confirmed.
In addition to the improvements mentioned earlier, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is rumored to feature a foldable screen with the minimal crease. It is expected to sport a larger primary camera sensor, which will likely result in better image quality and more versatile camera features. The device is also likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 For Galaxy processor, which should provide a significant boost in performance and efficiency. Lastly, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is expected to come with a longer battery life.
