In the latest teaser released by Samsung for its upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the July 26th Unpacked event, the waterdrop hinge of the foldable device is showcased without any gaps when the clamshell is closed. The teaser puts an end to the debate among Twitter tipsters about the presence of a gap, confirming a seamless design.
Aside from the gapless feature, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is expected to offer several exciting changes, including a larger Cover Display, measuring 3.4 inches, compared to the 1.9-inch external screens of the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.
However, leaked images suggest that the external screen may run widgets for the weather, time, battery life, and call history, raising questions about app compatibility on this display.
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and its larger counterpart, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, during the Samsung Unpacked event on July 26th. The event is also set to feature the Galaxy Watch 6 series and the Galaxy Tab S9 line, including the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra with its 14.6-inch display.
Those interested in the Galaxy Z Flip 5 can reserve their pre-orders now and save $50 on top of trade-in offers and other Samsung credit bonuses. The device’s larger Cover Display and previous models’ popularity are expected to drive high demand for the foldable.
The Unpacked event will kick off at 7 am EDT and 4 am PDT, and the live stream will be available on Samsung’s YouTube channel.
