Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 rumored specs point to larger cover display, new chipset and little else
The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra set the new benchmark for cover displays on flip foldables – its 3.6” 1,056 x 1,066px display (413ppi) is about as large as possible, it even has punch holes for the rear cameras. The consensus in the rumor mill is that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 will not be able to match it.
Current info suggests that the new Flip will have a 3.4” 720 x 748p (304ppi) display that stops short of the cameras and goes around them with a shallow notch as can be seen in early 3D renders.Galaxy Z Flip4 (left) • Galaxy Z Flip5 (right, speculative render)
Yogesh Brar posted a summary of the expected specs for the Galaxy Z Flip5, which match up with previous reports. The Samsung phone will top the likes of the Razr 40 Ultra and vivo X Fold (both of which have SD 8+ Gen 1 chipsets) with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, presumably the higher-clocked “for Galaxy” version to boot.
Efficiency gains from the Gen 2 chip will be depended on for battery life improvements as the battery subsystem remains the same – 3,700mAh capacity, 25W charging. The old Flip got a 92h endurance rating.
Nothing new for the camera system either, the phone is expected to bring the familiar 12+12MP setup. Additional details include 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB storage, plus Android 13 and OneUI 5.1. There is a chance that Samsung will enable DeX on the Z Flip for the first time, but that isn’t certain.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is expected to start at $1,000, according to Brar, same as the Z Flip4. The Razr 40 Ultra (aka Razr+) will also be $1,000 in the US. The Samsung Unpacked event is scheduled for in late July.

When will these companies get it ughhh. More battery and 45 watt charging standard. Can have all the features in the world but if the battery is small it is a failllll. Further, are they going to devalue the previous model like they did the s22 line ...

disagree big time, better screen real estate with the fact it goes over them and looks sleeker/more modern to boot
