We are beginning to see some official teasers from Samsung in addition to the normal leaks and speculations, and one of these teasers indicates a design improvement for the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The debut of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is getting closer, and we are starting to see some official teasers from Samsung.
A teaser video that was shared by Samsung on different social media platforms (via SamMobile) shows us a side-on glimpse of the Galaxy Z Flip 5, and it seems that this time around the flip foldable will feature a hinge that folds precisely flat. This confirms the rumors that have been circulating about the device.
This was not the case with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which was released a year ago; however, it seems that Samsung has the requisite technical know-how this time around, and there will be no gap when the phone is folded shut.
In point of fact, earlier reports had hinted in this direction: it was said that the hinge design would be more entirely closed, and that the foldable would also come with waterproofing for the very first time (which is difficult to do with this sort of form factor).
Since it is Samsung themselves providing the information, there is no need to assess the reliability of the source in this case. As we come closer to the next Unpacked event, which is going to take place on Wednesday, July 26th, you can anticipate seeing an increasing number of these teaser videos and photos.
We have also heard that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be receiving something that is almost identical to a gapless hinge. This, once again, should imply that the foldable will be more dependable and will be able to give protection against water and dust.
Coming back to the Galaxy Z Flip 5, another significant update that we anticipate will include the cover screen located on the outside of the device. Reports indicate that by the end of this year, it will have grown to a much more acceptable 3.4 inches, having started off at a pretty meager 1.9 inches.
The majority of the other Galaxy Z Flip 5 specifications have also been made public ahead of time, in case you want even more information on the upcoming Samsung Unpacked event.
