Today, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5, the fifth iteration of Galaxy foldables. The industry-leading form factors offer users a unique experience with sleek and compact designs, innumerable customization options, and potent performance. The new Flex Hinge enables the foldable experience while providing a design that is aesthetically balanced and robust. These unrivaled foldable devices enable extraordinary camera capabilities, such as FlexCam, for taking creative images. With powerful performance and an optimized battery fueled by the most recent processor, the Samsung Galaxy Z series reimagines the possibilities of an open or closed smartphone.
“Samsung is revolutionizing the mobile industry with foldables by setting the standard and continually refining the experience,” stated TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “Every day, more and more people choose our foldables because they provide an experience that is unavailable on any other device. Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 are the most recent devices demonstrating our dedication to meeting customer requirements through innovative technology.”
Samsung’s legacy of innovation and commitment to the category of foldables have produced immensely versatile devices. With a strong belief in the potential of the foldable format and world-class R&D and manufacturing capabilities, Samsung has continuously refined and optimized the Galaxy Z series. From content creation on the Galaxy Z Flip5’s new Flex Window to seamless multitasking on the Galaxy Z Fold5, this series of Galaxy foldables transcends the unique requirements of modern users.
Moreover, both the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 have been meticulously designed to meet durability requirements. The primary screen has a shock-absorbing layer and a redesigned rear for a more durable display. In addition to IPX8 certification, Armor Aluminum frames, and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®2 on both the Flex Window and back cover, the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 offer the protection expected by consumers, which the Flex Hinge further enhances. This brand-new incorporated hinge module has a dual rail structure that absorbs external impacts.
Galaxy Z Flip5 is the ultimate, compromise-free self-expression tool for your mobile. The Galaxy Z Flip5 provides a fashionable, one-of-a-kind foldable experience from a pocketable device designed for self-expression.
The new Flex Window, which is now 3.78 times larger than its predecessor, features a vast array of extant and new capabilities. It offers more customization options, such as informative and graphical clocks matching the face design of a user’s Galaxy Watch6 series, and fashionable frames. In addition, the Galaxy Z Flip5’s new Flipsuit Case protects the device with an interchangeable NFC card, allowing users to match the design of their Flex Window and a case for even more customization options.
Closed, the Galaxy Z Flip5 offers unprecedented usability. From the Flex Window, access useful information swiftly and easily.

Browse call history to return missed calls without ever opening the device, and respond to messages on the go using Quick Reply with a full QWERTY keyboard and visibility of chat history.
In addition to its unrivaled design and form factor, the Galaxy Z Flip5 provides any Samsung Galaxy smartphone’s most flexible camera experience. The larger Flex Window on the rear camera allows for high-quality photographs. FlexCam allows users to take stunning, hands-free photos from inventive angles. In Flex Mode, it is also fast and simple to view and edit images. Using the Flex Window’s Quick View, users can easily review, alter the color tone of, or delete images. Dual Preview enables the subject of a photograph of a friend to see themselves in the Flex Window so they can make adjustments in real-time for the perfect picture. Super Steady, which stabilizes the camera, enables users to get a steady picture on the go, while Auto Framing ensures that no one is left out.
The potent camera experience on the Galaxy Z Flip5 is enhanced with AI solutions, bringing every photo to life. Utilize your imagination, even in low light, with enhanced Nightography features that optimize photos and videos in ambient lighting conditions. The artificial intelligence (AI)-based image signal processing (ISP) algorithm corrects visual noise that typically degrades low-light images while augmenting details and color tone. With the digital 10X zoom, images are clearer from a greater distance.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 is the most productive device with a large display
Galaxy Z Fold5 offers an immersive, large display and a long-lasting battery in the thinnest and lightest Fold to date, making it portable and delivering the most potent performance in the Galaxy Z series.
The Galaxy Z Fold has pioneered in transforming commonplace productivity through a robust, large-screen experience, evolving from Multi Window and App Continuity to a vast array of features including Taskbar, drag-and-drop, and third-party app optimization. The S Pen Fold Edition, which was introduced with the third iteration of the Fold in 2021, has also been optimized to provide a superior writing experience on the Galaxy Z Fold5. Together, these features and tools provide powerful productivity on a large display and enable users to complete critical duties from anywhere.
The enhanced Taskbar facilitates dynamic productivity by enabling users to switch between frequently used applications rapidly. Now, up to four recently-used applications are accessible for more efficient work. Enhanced two-handed drag and drop can also increase productivity when transferring content between applications and screens. Touch and hold an image in Samsung Gallery with one finger, then open the Samsung Notes app with the other finger to drag and place the image. With hidden pop-up, an app can continue to run in the background, allowing users to view video content in full screen and chat with friends in a side-floating pop-up.
The new, more compact and slimmer S Pen Fold Edition makes real-time annotation and ideation effortless while fitting more comfortably in the pocket. Users can transport their S Pens in style with the Slim S Pen Case, which is nearly the same thickness as a standard case for the Fold and comes in various styles and colors.
The 7.6-inch Main Screen provides expansive and uninterrupted viewing so users can watch their favored movie in portrait or landscape mode while on the go. In addition, peak luminance has been increased by more than 30 percent, to a maximum of 1750 nits, for optimal viewing outdoors, even in direct sunlight.
The Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy provides users with an immersive gaming experience on the largest Galaxy smartphone screen by enhancing graphics and using AI to facilitate dynamic gaming and multi-game functionality. The Galaxy Z Fold5’s advanced cooling system dissipates heat more intelligently, resulting in less lag and no performance loss during extended gaming sessions.
Delivering a positive impact on the environment, Samsung will continue to demonstrate progress toward the company’s environmental vision and accelerate actions to help achieve its objectives, including the Device eXperience Division reaching net 0 carbon emissions by the year 2030.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 feature more recycled materials than their predecessors, including pre-consumer recycled glass and aluminum and post-consumer recycled plastics derived from discarded fishing nets, water containers, and PET bottles. Even the paper used to construct their packaging package is 100 percent recycled.
These innovations have also been constructed with longevity in mind. Each device includes five years of security updates and four iterations of operating system (OS) upgrades, thereby extending the product’s lifespan.
