The new cover display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has been a regular guest in the rumor mill lately. In addition, detailed technical data also surfaced today thanks to the reliable tipster Ice Universe. The outer display will have a resolution of 720 x 748 pixels and will be 3.4 inches diagonal, resulting in a pixel density of 304 ppi. The upgrade would be a huge leap compared to the Galaxy Z Flip4’s 1.9-inch, 260 x 512 pixel panel.
The new render shows the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and current Z Flip4 side by side. The new display offers significantly more space for the clock, the weather, some shortcuts and context-sensitive widgets. In addition to the user-friendliness, the functionality also increases significantly – on the next foldable Samsung smartphone you will be able to do significantly more things without having to open the foldable. You can also see the folder-shaped design of the external display and the slightly flatter side frames. Compared to normal screens, the edges are still quite thick though.
In order to do justice to the new panel, the camera module has been moved to the horizontal instead of the previous vertical arrangement. The rumors about the new hinge design also get further confirmation. According to the renderings, the gap between the two halves of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is almost non-existent. The newly designed mechanism closes much tighter.
