- Internal upgrades include Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, 8GB RAM, and faster storage.
Numerous leaks and rumors have already divulged a great deal about the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5. Samsung has even confirmed that it will hold an Unpacked event in Seoul, South Korea, to introduce its latest foldable devices in 2023. Now, shortly after the Fold 5’s promotional image surfaced online, leaving little to the imagination, the Z Flip 5 is also joining the fray.
The leaked marketing image, shared by MySmartPrice, showcases the new and larger cover display of Samsung’s upcoming clamshell foldable. In order to accommodate this larger screen, Samsung had to reposition the cameras and LED flash horizontally. Rumors suggest that the primary 12MP camera and ultra-wide sensors will remain unchanged.
Earlier leaks indicated that the Z Flip 5’s external screen may measure approximately 3.4 inches, a significant upgrade from the Flip 4’s 1.9-inch panel. Although slightly smaller than the Moto Razr+’s 3.6-inch screen, the Flip 5 is expected to offer a larger cover display compared to devices like the Oppo Find N2 Flip and Vivo X Flip.
From the marketing image, it is evident that the cover display can be used as a viewfinder for dual cameras. Additionally, it will feature a convenient Now Playing widget, allowing easy control of music playback directly from the cover screen. Google has plans to optimize popular apps such as Maps, YouTube, and Messages for the Flip 5’s outer display, enabling users to access navigation directions or send messages without having to open the phone.

Samsung intends to optimize its own apps to take advantage of the expanded screen real estate. Further details regarding these optimizations are likely to be revealed at the company’s Unpacked event in late July unless they are leaked beforehand.
Minor changes are expected for the Flip 5, with Samsung focusing primarily on internal upgrades. This includes the adoption of a more efficient Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “for Galaxy” chip, 8GB of RAM, and faster UFS 4.0 storage.
