I’m skipping the Galaxy S23 Ultra in favor of the next-gen Galaxy Z Fold smartphone. Over the S22 Ultra, I don’t think S23 Ultra would be a worthy upgrade, however, I’m planning to own a foldable eventually. The recent, Galaxy Z Fold 5 rumor suggests Samsung is making it a monster.
According to ThePixel report, Samsung has slightly increased the height of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphone, which could be 158.5mm. The report specifically mentions that the width of the next Fold could be 67.5mm (14.5mm thickness) when folded and 128.5mm (6.5 thickness) in unfolded state.
Compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the Korean tech giant has increased the height of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphone by 0.3mm, whereas the weight is 275 grams and thickness is increased by 0.4mm in a folded state. At the same time, the display crease won’t be there, as per the report.
Moreover, the inner 2X Dynamic AMOLED display of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 could expand to 7.6 inches with a resolution of 1768 x 2208px. It could be protected by Gorilla Glass Victus along with conventional IPX8 rating for water resistance.
Samsung greatly decreased the appearance of display crease with the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, the crease could finally be gone, starting the Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphone, releasing this August. Foldable without crease doesn’t sound practical, but nothing is impossible at Samsung.
When it comes to camera, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a big upgrade, which could reach the Galaxy S22 Ultra level. Reportedly, the upcoming foldable uses 108MP primary OIS camera with a 26mm focal length as well as Dual Pixel PDAF focus.
Furthermore, the 2x optical zoom camera will have a resolution of 64MP with 52mm focal length, PDAF and f.2.4 aperture. At the same time, there will be an additional 12MP ultrawide-angle lens with 12mm focal length and f 2.2 aperture.
To bring the S Pen compartment, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 smartphone could feature flat pen so the thickness would not expand further. Last year, Samsung also created a prototype of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which had a dedicated S Pen compartment.
Last but not least, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 device could be equipped with Snapdragon 985 processor. Since the next Fold is under development, Qualcomm may also rename the processor building for the foldable. Until the official launch in Q3, 2023, there will be so many leaks and rumors, so get ready to fold!
