According to media speculation, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will have a new type of hinge that reduces creases on the display while also allowing the foldables to close when folded. The latter will also have a larger cover display. Ice Universe, a well-known leaker, has now revealed more details about the upcoming clamshell foldable.
The new water drop-style hinge has no effect on the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s waterproofing. Samsung will continue to offer an IPX8 rating for water resistance, but no dust protection is guaranteed. When used outside, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will require extra care. Dust may cause problems with the hinge. The cover display on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 would be significantly larger than that of the Galaxy Z Flip 4.
