Galaxy Z Fold 5 leak shows a hinge that closes flat

Another clearly visible but minor change shows the camera flash moved off of the camera bump on the back, and the screen bezel looks a bit thinner.

Expected specs listed include screen sizes that are unchanged from the last couple of years, with a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display on the outside cover and a 7.6-inch QHD+ display on the inside, the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for Galaxy found in the Galaxy S23 phones, 4,400mAh battery with 45W fast charging and 25W wireless charging, a triple rear camera setup with 50MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, 10MP telephoto camera, and 12MP front-facing cameras for use open or closed.

If you believe in the dream of a versatile phone / tablet combo that’s perfect for multitasking, this is obviously a device to watch out for. However, unlike previous folding phones from Samsung, this one will face competition, including the Z Flip 5 we also expect to see at that Unpacked event, the Pixel Fold, and even Motorola’s next Razr.
