The flip-style foldable in Samsung’s promotional image looks right in line with the rumors and leaks we’ve seen thus far with a lower-profile hinge. It certainly looks like a phone that will close flat. Unfortunately, this profile view doesn’t give us a glimpse of the cover screen, which is expected to be much larger than the teeny tiny screen on the Z Flip 4 — literally big, if true.
For the first time, Samsung is going into its foldable-focused summer Unpacked feeling a little heat from the competition. Google recently released the much-anticipated Pixel Fold, and Motorola is finally back in contention with the delightful Razr Plus. Still, Samsung has been at this for a while, and hosting this event on its home turf in Seoul seems like an indication of just how important the foldable category is for the company. All will be revealed in a few short weeks, and if you aren’t in Seoul, you’ll be able to watch along online — just plan to BYO coffee.
Samsung is once again offering preorder reservations, entitling you to a $50 credit once you place a preorder. There’s no commitment aside from providing your name and email address, and you can sign up for a reservation starting tonight through July 25th. Seems pretty… flexible.
