In August, Samsung released the fourth version of their innovative folding smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, the Korean behemoth isn’t resting on its laurels; whispers about the features of its successor are already making the rounds. What do we know about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 at this point?
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 release date?
Samsung has not announced a release date for this model just yet, but the corporation does adhere to a fairly consistent timetable for the introduction of its premium products. Find out when the older generations started showing up below!
- September 2019 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold
- September 2020 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
- August 2021 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3.
- August 2022 for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
Since the first two generations of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold were introduced in August, we can probably expect the fifth generation to debut in August 2023.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 price?
Since folding smartphones are still in the luxury category, you can expect Samsung to charge a premium for the updated Fold lineup. You may get an idea of what you might expect to pay by looking at how the last couple of generations fared economically.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4:
- 256GB: $1,799/£1,649/€1,799/₹154,999
- 512GB: $2,009/£1,769/€1,919/₹164,999
- 1TB: $2,249/£2,019/€2,159/₹184,999
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3:
- 256GB: $1,799/£1,599/€1,799/₹149,999
- 512GB: $1,899/£1,699/€1,899/₹157,999
There was some consistency in pricing among models, but there was also some gradual inflation. There’s probably not going to be much of a price drop when the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 finally comes, what with energy prices rising due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and inflation rates throughout the world being anything but stable.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 features and specs?
Even though it will be a while until the new Fold is released, speculation regarding the update’s purported features has begun. The Elec, a Korean technology website, has been the primary source of leaks so far, claiming that the next Samsung Galaxy Fold 5 will include the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU, which is scheduled to debut at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit in November. Early indications suggest that the processor will have enhanced energy efficiency and better heat management, resulting in cooler phones even under sustained operation.
According to the story, the Fold 5’s triple camera setup will consist of the same 50-megapixel primary sensor (the Samsung ISOCELL GN3), 12-megapixel ultrawide, and 10-megapixel telephoto lenses as the Fold 4. The Elec claims the front-facing camera will include a 12Mp sensor, which is an upgrade from the 10Mp sensor found in the current iteration of the Fold 4.
Since Samsung revamped the Fold 4’s hinge, we don’t anticipate major design adjustments in the next iteration. As a result, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 may have similar hardware as the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which included a 6.2-inch AMOLED cover display and a 7.6-inch AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. IPX8 water resistance joined the stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6e, Bluetooth 5.2, 5G, a 4400mAh battery, and 25W charging.
