Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Fold 5 One UI 5.1.1

Samsung has reportedly made a big change in both the time and place of the release of the next-gen foldable phones. The latest input claims that Samsung plans to hold an Unpacked event to launch the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 in Seoul in the last week of July.

According to a report, Samsung will launch the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 on July 26 in Seoul, South Korea. Considering that Samsung held foldable Unpacked events on August 10, 2022, and August 11, 2021, the schedule has been moved forward by two weeks this year.

Additionally, the report also suggests a possible release date for the new foldable phones. After Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 unveiling on July 26, Samsung plans to begin releasing the phones on August 11. To be noted, the Z3 and Z4 series began to release in late August 2021 and 2022.

“The previous works were released at the end of August and reflected in the third quarter (July-September) performance for about a month, but this time, the release schedule was advanced and the ‘foldable effect’ could be seen for nearly two months,” said an industry watcher.

After + Before Apple: It is a strategy of Samsung to sell foldable phones ahead of Apple, which introduces new iPhones in September every year, and to release the Galaxy S series early the following year when the new iPhones are less effective.

Unpacked in Seoul

So far, Samsung has held foldable phone launch events only in the United States, such as New York and San Francisco. However, holding a foldable phone public event in Seoul is also a big change, happening this year to promote the city’s bid for the 2030 World Expo.

Regarding this, Samsung Electronics said, “The launch date and venue of the next foldable phone have not yet been decided.”

As we have seen in the CAD renders, the South Korean tech giant made significant changes to the design and usability by increasing the cover screen of the Galaxy Z Flip model from 1.9 inches to 3.4 inches this year. At the same time, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 adopts a new droplet design hinge.

According to the tipster, the display crease of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 looks the same as the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It was reported that the next foldable phone will be equipped with a new droplet hinge design to vanish the crease visibility.

Meanwhile, the “100% confirmed” leak points out it’s not changing this year. However, there is a probability of changes in the real product as the company is reportedly testing the durability of the device after applying the new hinge alongside the existing U-shaped hinge.

Various Chinese phone makers adopted the waterdrop hinge technology. Oppo’s Find N2 is a smartphone with the least visible crease in the industry as per the feedback of reviewers. However, durability always remains in priority as the foldable form factor is yet to mature.

Display PWM Dimming Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra Vs Apple and Honor flagships



Samsung Galaxy S23 Honor Apple PWM Dimming

Smartphones are rapidly becoming smart and smart, thanks to technological innovations. In a recent development, a display PWM dimming comparison surfaced on the internet revealing that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is way too behind in this aspect against Honor.

Twitter user TECHINFO45 shared a video displaying the screen flickering on three flagship phones. In the video, Honor was the star of the show, leaving Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro in the dust, when it comes to display PWM dimming.

Higher display PWM dimming frequency of Honor 90 Pro made it a clear winner over the world’s two most powerful smartphones. FYI, PWM is a technique for controlling the brightness of a display panel by varying the width of the light pulse. You control how long the screen remains on or off.

PWM dimming frequencies:

  1. Honor 90 Pro 3840Hz
  2. Galaxy S23 Ultra – 240Hz
  3. Apple iPhone 14 Pro – 480Hz

Lowering the brightness causes the screen to be off for longer than it is on, which is perceived as lower brightness. The higher frequencies the lower rate of stress on human eyes that’s what studies say but it doesn’t mean Samsung panels are not eye-friendly.

It’s worth mentioning that some smartphone users may find them sensitive to the display flicker effects, while some aren’t. Here’s the smartphone equipped with a display having a higher PWM dimming frequency that would do a lot better, thanks to the low rate of flickering on the panel.
