- Google’s entry brings more options and potential for improved quality in foldable devices.
According to the leaks by Tipster Ice Universe upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will not have significant design changes compared to its predecessor. Leaks suggest the cover of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5.
The only difference one can notice between the leaked case of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and a case for 2022 foldable is a small hole cutout next to the rear camera cutout, which is most likely for LED flash.

This suggests that Samsung has changed the position of LED flash in the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 when compared to its predecessor. Apart from this, we can not spot another change between the cases of two foldable devices. Although the dimensions may have changed.
The new foldable could shave almost a millimeter off of its thickness, with a leak revealing the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 as per Android Central. Galaxy Z Fold 5 will measure 13.4mm thick when folded, 0.8mm more than the Galaxy Z Fold 4’s 14.2mm, suggests the leaks.
Samsung’s rumored waterdrop hinge suggests that it may be the first Samsung device that can fold completely. This brings Google and Samsung directly in competition as Google’s Pixel Fold also features a hinge that makes both halves fold and completely flat.
Google launched its first foldable device the Pixel Fold at Google I/O 2023 on May 10 data price of Samsung’s previous generation Galaxy Z Fold — was $1,799. It seems like Google wants to directly compete with Samsung in foldable devices. We hope this competition brings more quality in the foldable device which will eventually be a win for consumers.
