Samsung Fold 5 Overview

Design

The biggest change, which is likely also the most requested change, on the new Fold 5, is its new “flex hinge”. The redesigned flex hinge closes the gap that was very prevalent on the Z Fold 4, enabling the phone to be slimmer (13.4mm at its slimmest) and lighter (253g, down from 263g) than before.

The flex hinge’s new dual rail design is said to be stronger and more durable than the Fold 4. Other than that, the Z Fold 5 does not seem to bring any new changes.

It is enclosed in Samsung’s “Armor Aluminum” frame, and the phone has the latest Gorilla Victus 2 for both the front and back. Moreover, the phone retains its IPX8 rating for water resistance.

Additionally, the S Pen Fold Edition is now 40% slimmer. Although the phone still has no dedicated place for the S Pen like in the S23 Ultra.
