It’s no secret that Samsung is close to launching yet another smartphone. Since the death of Note, the second half of the year is usually reserved for the company’s foldables, and this year will be no different. We’ve already seen plenty of Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 leaks over the past few months, giving us a rough idea of what both phones will look like and how powerful they really are. Now, if you’re curious about the phablet-sized foldable, some new leaks have left little to the imagination.
Let’s start by taking a look at what appears to be a leaked official render, first published on MySmartPrice. This image lines up well with previous CAD renders shown in older leaks, prominently showing many of the biggest changes, including the hinge. The render shows a phone that, a first for Samsung, folds completely. It’s long been rumored that we’ll be getting a redesigned hinge that will get rid of the annoying gap found on older models, and these renders seem to confirm it.
Of course, we’ll need to see the phone in the flesh to know exactly how it looks and feels. Based on this image, we also get slightly smaller bezels along the inner screen – certainly when compared to Google’s upcoming Pixel Fold. Other than that, the phone looks a lot like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Previous rumors indicated that this year it would retain a similar design, so there are no real surprises here.
We also have more confirmation of its specs, thanks to a leaker Yogesh Brar. The phone is supposed to use a 7.6-inch foldable AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, with a 6.2-inch external screen with HD + resolution. The phone is likely to pack a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC — no shocker there — with up to 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. It should also sport a triple rear camera setup complete with a 50MP main sensor, all paired with a 4MP selfie camera under the display and a 10MP camera on the outside. We may also see a 4,400mAh battery with 25W charging and, of course, One UI 5 based on Android 13.
Finally, it’s very similar to the phone we saw last year, which should keep Z Fold 4 owners satisfied for another twelve months. Samsung has already announced its intention to debut these new foldable phones during the Unpacked keynote next month in South Korea, giving us plenty of time for additional leaks in the coming weeks.
