Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has a new, bigger, cover display that looks great

Last Updated on by Admin

Samsung’s Unpacked event is expected to hold in the final week of July 2023, and it is at that event that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is expected to be announced. The Flip5 is set to be Samsung’s best flip smartphone yet.

Why is this so? Competition. There is competition in the clamshell foldable space, especially from OPPO’s Find N2 Flip which showed up last year with features that took some shine off the Galaxy Z Flip4.

We do not know a lot yet about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5, but we do have a confirmation from Ice Universe that it has been designed to have a lovely looking “folder” shaped external screen and that Samsung is currently adapting the software design to work around that unique shape of the screen [1].
