Over the weekend, smartphone leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer shared leaked images of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. Now, we have our first glimpse of its sibling phone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, thanks to reliable renders from Media Peanut. While rumors of a redesign had been circulating, these high-quality renders provide the first credible glimpse at the upcoming device.
The most noticeable upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the revamped cover display. The external display now takes up almost half of the back of the phone, giving users better access to features and controls without having to first unfold the device. The phone’s sides have also been squared off in the renders, indicating that it has been redesigned to match the Galaxy S23 series.
Despite these changes, the rest of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5’s design appears largely similar to previous iterations. The dual-lens camera system remains on the back, and there is still a display cutout for the selfie camera on the inside. Additionally, there is a bottom-firing speaker beside a USB-C port, and the power button/fingerprint sensor combination is also retained.
The significant changes are expected to be in the phone’s interior. The upcoming device is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, likely the same as the one inside the Galaxy S23 series. While there are no credible rumors about camera upgrades, users can expect a longer-lasting battery and faster charging. Samsung is likely to launch the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 in July or August. While a late July launch has been rumored, nothing is certain at this time. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates!
