Samsung may launch its next-generation of foldable smartphones in August 2023. Meanwhile, reliable Samsung tipster revealed some key specs of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 including IP rating, processor, display and hinge design.
According to Ice’s specs leak, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 will feature new waterdrop (droplet) hinge design along with support for IPX8 rating for water resistance. The new hinge design will reportedly make foldable phones slimmer as well as reduce the crease wrinkes.
Moreover, the source said that the size of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold5 is just 0.2mm different from its predecessor. It’s said that the gap will disappear after folding, which will make it thinner, reducing the thickness to 13. x mm, thanks to Samsung’s new hinge technology.
Talking about cover display, the Galaxy Z Fold5 won’t get any upgrades, while its not the same case for the Galaxy Z Flip5. As per the leak, the company’s next clamshell style phone could have a square outer screen of about 3.4 inches, covering the most area of the upside part.
Both smartphones may be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, which offers great performance and longer battery life compared to predecessor. For your info, the same processor powers the recently released Galaxy S23 flagships.
The leak further claims 254 grams weight of the Galaxy Z Fold5, narrower bezels on the inner screen of the Galaxy Z Flip5 and new touch screen technology, possibly upgraded ultra thin glass technology. Since the launch is months away, we will get to know more about these phones in the coming days.
Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max: So Hot It’s On Fire! Literally.
Apple’s new iPhone 15 Pro is a hot topic, why not it should be, it’s so hot (even on fire!). Following the release, some iPhone 15 Pro Max users complained about the overheating issues. Their device gets warm, even with no longer use cases or gaming, rendering them in big trouble.
Initial purchasers of the iPhone 15 Pro Max complain that their phone gets too hot within minutes. The phone’s temperature reaches a level where the iOS stops charging (if connected) until it decreases. Some report that the titanium body appears horribly hot, which is disappointing.
A user managed to check the temperature of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, which registered over 100-degree Fahrenheit. The model is getting warm even without using it as well as sometimes minutes after connecting the USB C-Type charging cable.
Notably, Apple’s iPhone 15 Pro Max is equipped with A17 Pro chipset. This processor is manufactured by Taiwan’s TSMC on the cutting-edge 3nm process technology. Apple recommends users not charge their iPhone with Android’s USB C cable, while the overheating reports continue to emerge.

Rumor Mill Buzzing: Samsung Galaxy S24 Series May Hit Shelves in January 2024
Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 series in February, while the Galaxy S24 series is reportedly coming earlier. Recently, Korean media reported that the parts production for Samsung’s Galaxy S24 smartphones could begin in mid-October.
According to a reliable source, Samsung may launch the Galaxy S24 series in January 2024. The tipster claims the devices may be unveiled around January 18, but it’s not confirmed. Notably, Korean media reports that the S24 series will go official a month earlier than this year.
The South Korean tech giant believes that the early debut of its next-gen Galaxy S flagships will help counter the success of the iPhone 15 series. Following the release, Apple is securing outstanding consumer response towards its iPhone 15 series internationally.
Next year’s Galaxy S flagship lineup will present three models – S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra. Samsung appears to be bringing back the in-house Exynos 2400 chipset, but the Ultra will solely use Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 for Galaxy, manufactured by TSMC.
