With a couple of month to go till the subsequent Samsung Galaxy Unpacked occasion, we might have a reasonably complete concept about what to anticipate from the subsequent model of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. A number of leaks over the previous few days have revealed lots about what the telephones might appear to be — and what’s underneath their respective hoods — forward of their official unveiling.
A Twitter leak from Revegnus on July twenty fifth confirmed a photograph of a folded telephone that appears to be to be the Galaxy Z Flip 5 in a blocky, black case (by way of 9to5Google). The case hides loads of the design, however what you may see backs up earlier alleged renders. As an illustration, the display screen on the again could be the similar 3.4-inch 720 x 748 cowl display screen that’s been predicted. You may also make out the side-by-side digital camera lenses, one other rumored replace to the design.
A droplet-style fold has been used already in rivals’ telephones just like the Oppo Discover N2 and it ought to cut back the seen crease the place the telephones fold — one thing that has plagued folding telephones since their inception.
Subsequent up, prolific leaker SnoopyTech despatched folks on a little bit of a scavenger hunt on Monday that led to units of leaked renders of each the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in numerous colours, utilizing a binary-coded tweet as the primary clue. When translated, it directed readers to Pastebin for extra clues, and ultimately, to renders and specs. I’ve collected a number of the renders within the gallery under:
Within the spec sheet SnoopyTech additionally included within the crumb path, the colours are listed as Cream; Graphite; Mint; and Lavender for the Z Flip 5 and Icy Blue; Cream; and Phantom Black for the Z Fold 5.
Aside from new coloration shades and apparent design tweaks, different modifications to Samsung’s foldables embody upgraded Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPUs and a thinner chassis for each telephones — partially backing up an April rumor that the Z Fold 5’s depth can be shaved.
In keeping with SnoopyTech’s leaked specs, the Fold 5 will shrink from 14.2mm — the thinnest level of a folded Galaxy Z Fold 4 — to 13.4mm. The Z Flip 5 will even skinny up, coming in at 15.1mm when folded versus 15.9mm on the thinnest level of a folded Z Flip 4. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 might also lose some weight, dropping 10 grams from final 12 months’s mannequin. Lastly, the leak exhibits the Fold 5’s digital camera array might have a 12MP telephoto lens — different earlier leaks have put its telephoto at 10MP, which the Fold 4 used.
There are two notable absences in SnoopyTech’s leak: no 128GB mannequin and no 1TB mannequin for both telephone. Whereas that doesn’t imply we received’t see these storage ranges within the closing telephones, it’s price looking for subsequent month. In any other case, based mostly on SnoopyTech’s listed specs, no different variations stood out — the specs for battery life, Wi-Fi connectivity, RAM, and extra all level to principally unchanged internals.
