Samsung fans have reason to be excited as details about the upcoming Z Flip 5 smartphone have been leaked by the reliable Twitter account Ice Universe. According to the anonymous account, the new device will feature a larger 3.4-inch cover screen with a resolution of 720 x 748. While Ice Universe has previously mentioned the 3.4-inch secondary display, this is the first time a specific resolution has been revealed. The Z Flip 5's cover display is a significant upgrade from the Z Flip 4's 1.9-inch 260 x 512 cover screen. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach the official release of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.
Just a few days after OnLeaks and MediaPeanut revealed unofficial renders of Samsung's upcoming flagship phone based on leaked specifications, a new leak has surfaced. The anonymous Twitter account, Ice Universe, has claimed that the phone will feature a 3.4-inch cover display. OnLeaks, on the other hand, expects that the size of the internal display will remain the same at 6.7 inches. This latest rumor aligns with a previous report from supply chain analyst Ross Young, who speculated last year that the Z Flip 5 would have a secondary display larger than 3 inches. As the release date approaches, it will be exciting to see which of these predictions will come true.
Foldable flip phones are upping the ante with cover display size becoming the next major battleground for smartphone rivals. Motorola, Samsung's main competitor, is reportedly planning a similar increase in cover display size for one of its upcoming Razr variants, which is set to feature a 3.5-inch screen, a notable upgrade from the last Razr's 2.7-inch 573 x 800 resolution display. Meanwhile, Oppo's recent Find N2 Flip has a 3.26-inch cover display with a resolution of 382 x 720. It is important to note that these cover displays have varying aspect ratios that impact how large they appear in practice, making direct comparisons somewhat misleading. Nevertheless, the trend is towards bigger secondary screens that can serve a wider range of purposes beyond simply checking the time and notifications.
According to rumors, Samsung is set to unveil its latest flagship phone, the Galaxy Z Flip 5, at an upcoming event in late July. The launch event is also expected to feature the latest version of Samsung's full-size foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The Z Fold 5 is rumored to come with a better hinge design that reduces the visibility of the crease when unfolded. It may also be thinner and lighter than its predecessor, which would make it more convenient to carry around. We'll have to wait and see if these rumors hold true, but Samsung fans can certainly look forward to some exciting developments in the world of foldable smartphones.
