Galaxy Z Flip 5 launched — a flip-phone that barely needs opening
The Galaxy Z Flip 5, Samsung’s newest clamshell-style foldable smartphone, has been unveiled.
On Wednesday, July 26, 2023, at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked in Seoul, South Korea, the foldable flip phone was formally unveiled.
A significantly larger exterior OLED display is the Flip 5’s main improvement over its predecessor.
With a resolution of 720 x 748, its 3.4-inch size makes it almost twice as large as the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s 1.9-inch cover display.
Samsung has been able to add support for ten apps and thirteen widgets that can use a full-size QWERTY keyboard thanks to the additional space.
This eliminates the need for users to open their primary screen in order to send messages, make video calls, watch videos, listen to music, take better selfies, and check alerts.
The applications Netflix, Google Maps, YouTube, and WhatsApp may all be utilized on the cover screen. Additionally, Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection is included with the exterior screen.
The inbuilt OLED display has a resolution of 1,080 x 2640 and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It is 6.7 inches in size.
The smartphone’s folded thickness is now uniform due to the new gapless design, which makes the two sides of the screen appear to close flush.
With the main modifications being made to lessen the bulkiness of the Flip, the rest of the design is remarkably similar to that of its predecessor.
The phone’s height has decreased slightly while maintaining the same screen size, thanks in part to the redesigned hinge.
The Flip 5 has Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU, which comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of storage for optimal performance.
The hole-punch selfie camera has a 10MP lens, while the rear camera has two 12MP sensors: one wide and one ultrawide.
The Flip 4’s 3,700mAh battery capacity, 15W wireless charging, 4.5W reverse wireless charging, and 25W wired charging speed have all been maintained by Samsung.
