Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is expected to debut during the Galaxy Unpacked event alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in the last week of this month. The unannounced foldable smartphone is making new headlines as supposed live images of the device have surfaced online. The latest live renders suggest a new hinge design on the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It appears to have three rear camera sensors. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 looks identical to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, except for the position of the LED flash and a stereo loudspeaker setup.
Tipster Ahmed Qwaider (@AhmedQwaider888) tweeted alleged live photos of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 that have since been removed by Twitter in response to a content takedown request. The images suggest the upcoming smartphone will appear similar to last year's Galaxy Z Fold 4, with minor cosmetic changes to the smartphone's design and rear camera setup.
The company's next foldable phone is shown with a new hinge design with both halves of the foldable phone sitting flat against each another. The USB Type-C port and a microphone appear to be arranged on the bottom, while the speaker grille is seen at the top line. The foldable seems to have a stereo speaker setup and four microphones.
Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 appears to have a vertically arranged triple camera setup at the back. The LED flash is seen arranged on the right side of the protruding cameras. On last year's Galaxy Z Fold 4, the LED flash is placed under the camera sensors.
Recently, the complete specifications of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 leaked online. The handset is tipped to run on Android 13 with Samsung's One UI 5.1.1 skin on top. It could sport a 7.6-inch full-HD+ (1,812 x 2,176 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED inner display with a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120Hz, and a 6.2-inch (904 x 2,316 pixels) Dynamic AMOLED outer display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. The foldable is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, paired with 12GB of RAM. There could be 256GB and 512GB storage options.
The purported Galaxy Z Fold 5 is said to feature a triple rear camera setup comprising a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto shooter. For selfies and video chats, it could feature a 10-megapixel front camera. Also, the foldable could feature a 4-megapixel under-display camera located on the internal display. Samsung is also tipped to equip the handset with a 4,400mAh battery..
