A couple of months ago, we got unofficial renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 5, but now it looks like we’re getting an official press render that’s been leaked, potentially giving us our first real look at the phone ahead of its launch in July. Of course, without confirmation, it’s hard to say if this image we’re seeing today is the real deal, but luckily we won’t have to wait long to find out, as the Galaxy Unpacked launch event is scheduled to take place in Seoul next month.
Galaxy Z Fold 5 image comes from MySmartPrice, which has been known in the past for sharing leaks about some of the best Android smartphones to be launched this year. Usually, leaks are done in partnership with OnLeaks, which has a relatively poor track record, but this latest leak comes from an anonymous source. Although it seems quite exceptional, you’d better be a little more skeptical of this information for now.
However, we do see a foldable design from Samsung where the phone closes flat. If this rendering is to be believed, Samsung is finally making a major design change to the foldable by introducing a hinge with a more modern design. Over the past year or two, other companies have moved to the “Waterdrop” hinge design to achieve a completely flat design. The other advantage of this design is that it reduces creases in the screen and makes it look better.
Although Samsung was one of the first companies to market with a foldable smartphone, it hasn’t done a great job when it comes to pushing the envelope, with many believing that the company is slowing down when it comes to innovations due to its lack. a race. In terms of other things that we can see from the render, the design looks very similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, but there is a slight difference when it comes to the LED placement located near the rear cameras, which has been changed from bottom to side with the upcoming model.
The device is expected to arrive with the latest versions of Qualcomm and will see minor changes when it comes to its dimensions which have been leaked by Ice World on Twitter a few months ago. But perhaps the most interesting improvements consumers are most eager to see are the device’s cameras.
While some leaked specs do exist, we’ll reserve judgment until they come from a more reliable source. But, as of now, the phone looks good, but will it be enough to compete against the Google Pixel Fold and the rumored foldable OnePlus due to arrive in the next few months? We can’t wait to find out.
