Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5: Specs

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 is the thinnest model to date. Its flex window is the biggest upgrade where you can customise the front screen to do a multitude of things without having to flip your phone.

The Z Fold 5 comes with an S-Pen and is the toughest and lightest Fold yet, according to Samsung. You can expect a zero-gap hinge for a better grip, a less visible crease and similar display tech as the S23 Ultra.
