Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are expected to be unveiled at the Galaxy Unpacked event on July 26 and they are currently up for pre-reservations in India. Multiple leaks over the past few months have already revealed quite a lot about the next-generation foldable phones and most recently, a hands-on video of the dummy units of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has surfaced online. The video suggests the design of the upcoming flip phone. It is shown with a folder-shaped external display and appears to have a hinge gap. Like the previous model, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is seen featuring a fingerprint sensor.
Leakspinner (via SlashLeaks) shared a hands-on video and images of the dummy units of Galaxy Z Flip 5. They suggest a design language similar to last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 4. However, it is seen with a much larger folder-shaped cover display with two camera modules. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 has been widely expected to come with a water drop style hinge design to eliminate the gap between both halves while folding. The video, however, reveals a distinct gap when the clamshell foldable is folded.
The volume rocker and power button with integrated fingerprint reader are seen arranged on the right edge of the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The SIM card tray appears to be placed on the left and a USB Type-C port is seen on the bottom. These design elements appear to match up with what we’ve seen in older leaks. However, it is worth taking these leaked images with a grain of salt.
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled to take place on July 26 at 4:30pm IST. It will be streamed live via the company’s website and YouTube channel. Samsung is currently taking pre-reservations for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in India.
