The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, which is expected to receive minor design upgrades this year, has had some hardware specifications and pricing leaked by tipster Anthony (@TheGalox). The tipster revealed that the displays would remain the same size, with the outer display being 6.2 inches across and the inner folding panel being 7.6 inches. Both displays are expected to have a 120Hz screen refresh rate that is brighter than displays in the outgoing model. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will reportedly feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy SoC, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, and 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB UFS 4.0 storage options. The camera will be a 50-megapixel primary, 12-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 10-megapixel telephoto, and it will be capable of recording 8K video at 30fps.
Minor Design Upgrades
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is only expected to receive minor design upgrades this year, but the tipster claimed that the hinge would have a less noticeable crease and a smaller visible gap when closed. The design is expected to be thinner and lighter, and it will reportedly feature Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection for the outer display as well as a more durable inner display and a new under display camera.
Spec Comparison with Rival Brands
The Galaxy Z Fold lineup is facing increasingly tough competition, as other brands begin to catch up. Oppo and Vivo have yet to announce global availability of their respective horizontal folding phones, but the much-rumoured Pixel Fold from Google is expected to be more widely available. The Pixel Fold is reportedly more compact than Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 5, and it is expected to have a starting price of $1,799.
Pricing and Availability
The leaked price tag for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is $1,799 (approximately Rs. 1,47,000). There is no official word from Samsung regarding a release date.
