The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 has been one of the top smartphones out there for a while thanks to its impressive technology and worldwide availability. According to previous reports, the successor Galaxy Z Fold5 will start in July, so the rumor mill is now in full swing. This is also the case today, when a credible leak summarizes the technical data of the Z Fold 5. The biggest change seems to be the move to the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Beyond that, Samsung’s next foldable flagship appears to be changing little. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 should also have a 7.6-inch AMOLED main display with a QXGA+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The cover display should also be AMOLED, stay at 6.2 inches and have a HD+ resolution. In addition to 12 GB of RAM, there should be 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB of storage options. According to the leak, we also get a 4,400 mAh battery that offers 25 watt fast charging support. Android 13 with Samsung’s One UI interface is used as the operating system.

On the back of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 there is a 50-megapixel main camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide cam and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. The cover display houses a 10 megapixel selfie camera and the inner folding display stays with the 4 megapixel selfie camera under the display. While the resolutions remain the same, Samsung could add new sensors to some of these cameras.

Other than that, the leak doesn’t mention any design changes. Previous rumors have already suggested that Samsung is working on a waterdrop hinge. This should make the crease in the display less noticeable and also protect the Z Fold5 against dust. This would increase the protection class to IP58. As for storage, an upgrade to UFS 4.0 is likely, just like the Galaxy S23 series.

If all these specs sound suspiciously familiar, they’re not only identical to those of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4. They’re even identical to those of the Galaxy Z Fold3. Apart from the processor change and the software upgrades, there have primarily been minor upgrades such as narrower bezels, a smaller hinge and more robust materials in recent years. Today’s report also suggests that little will change with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 either.
