The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra, which has just been introduced, holds the current record for cover displays on foldables. Its 3.6-inch exterior display has a resolution of 1,056 x 1,066 pixels (413 ppi) and even has cut-outs for the main cameras and the flash. According to the current rumors, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 will not be able to keep up in this regard.
Instead, the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 should have a 3.4-inch second display with 720 x 748 pixels (304 ppi). The panel ends just before the cameras with a flat arc around the lenses. Exactly this design also appeared in the first renderings that can be seen above. And the 748p resolution was already confirmed back then.
Tipster Yogesh Brar today shared an updated summary of the expected specs for the Galaxy Z Flip5. According to this, the Samsung cell phone is powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, probably in the higher clocked Galaxy version. This would put the Flip5 ahead of the Razr 40 Ultra and the vivo X Flip. Both foldables run on Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processors.
The better efficiency of the SD 8 Gen 2 should also ensure a longer battery life. That would be good news, as the 3,700mAh battery capacity and 25W charging speed remain the same. There is also nothing new in the camera department – it will probably stay with the well-known 12 plus 12 megapixel setup. Other details include 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of storage, as well as Android 13 and One UI 5.1. Samsung may also enable desktop support via DeX on a Z Flip for the first time.
Galaxy Z Flip5 price
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is expected to start at $1,000 (€935), according to Brar, the same price as the Galaxy Z Flip4. The Razr 40 Ultra (aka Razr+) will also be $1,000 in the US. The Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for late July.
