Samsung is ready to reveal the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5 at the Galaxy Unpacked event this month. But before the official launch, some hands-on images of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 have surfaced online. They show the phone’s new hinge design and the rear camera setup.
A New Hinge for a Better Fold
The hands-on images were shared by tipster Ahmed Qwaider. They show that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has no gap between the two halves of the foldable screen, unlike the previous models. The bottom of the phone has a speaker, a USB Type-C port, and a mic. On the the top, the device has three mics and a speaker. So, in total, the phone seems to have stereo speakers and four mics.
Samsung may have used a new waterdrop-shaped hinge for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. This type of hinge is also used by other brands like Huawei, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi for their foldable phones. It makes the fold more seamless and reduces the crease on the inner screen.
