Samsung brought the unbridled hype and excitement to their Galaxy Unpacked event held on July 26 in Seoul, South Korea with the unveiling of its fifth generation Galaxy foldables: the Galaxy Z Flip5 and the Galaxy Z Fold5.
The latest flagship foldables feature sleek and compact designs, a plethora of customization options, and quality performance. As TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics shares, “Samsung is revolutionizing the mobile industry with foldables by setting the standard and continually refining the experience”.
Samsung burst into the foldable scene in 2019, equipped with its legacy of innovation and dedication to creating incredibly versatile devices. Add to that its world-class R&D and manufacturing capabilities, Samsung has consistently updated the flagship series leading up to this year’s fifth generation.
Samsung’s new and improved Flex Hinge makes for a smooth experience when folding and unfolding the device, while offering an elegant and solid design. Extraordinary camera capabilities such as FlexCam give users the ability to take photos from creative angles. Sporting strong performance capabilities and an optimized battery powered by the latest processor, the brand new Samsung Galaxy Z series is a compelling choice in bringing would-be users into the fold.
The Galaxy Z Flip5’s new and improved Flex Window is 3.78 times larger than the previous generation and comes packed with a variety of useful features. These include Widgets and a Quick Reply function that sports a full QWERTY keyboard. Thanks to the Flex Window, making use of the phone’s rear dual 12MP ultra-wide and wide-angle cameras in Flex Mode is a breeze. As for selfies, the 10MP front camera takes photos with utmost clarity, ensuring your selfies will always be Instagram-worthy.
The Galaxy Z Flip5’s 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate provide a wonderful viewing experience. The Z Flip5 is packed with the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, 8 GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage, making daily tasks and gaming alike effortless. Additionally, its 3,700mAh dual battery will last you through your busy day, and can be recharged in a snap with 25W of charging. The Galaxy Z Flip5 comes in Graphite, Cream, Lavender, and Mint colorways.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 sports an immersive large screen, premium specs, and a long-lasting battery while being the thinnest Fold in the series to date.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 features a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display, a Taskbar, Multi-window capability, and App Continuity. You can also make great use of said features on a generous 6.2-inch AMOLED 2X display that shares a snappy 120Hz refresh rate.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 sports five powerful cameras in total. The rear cameras give you a 12MP ultra-wide lens for a larger field-of-view, a 50MP wide-angle lens for ultra-clear snapshots, and a 10MP telephoto lens for portrait photography. The phone also has a 10MP selfie camera on the cover display, and a 4MP under display camera when the phone is unfolded. With the same Flex Hinge technology, there are countless ways to take perfect portraits.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform coupled with 12 GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage. This gives you the capability to accomplish whatever you set out for during the day. The beefy 4,400mAh is more than enough to keep you going, and can be topped up quickly with 25W of charging.
