the bet of samsung for folding smartphones more than serious. It is the conviction of the South Korean company that this type of mobile is the future of the cell phone industry. Good examples of this were the launches of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the latter with a successor in development.
According to a report published on the website of geek culturewe have the first big leak about the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, which would have a large external screen.
He was the renowned insider Ice Universewith more than 435 thousand followers on Twitter, who reported that the Z Flip 5 could have a large external screen and that it would hit stores in August 2023.
In addition, the leaker assures that it will become one of the best folding smartphones in this era, with this huge external panel with an almost square aspect ratio.
“It is very likely that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 will have this design. I’m in a big investigation”, wrote Ice Universe, sharing a concept image of the mobile.

As if that were not enough, a Twitter user asked the informant if the screen of this promising Samsung will be bigger than that of the acclaimed Oppo Find N2 Flip (of which we did this review) and his answer was affirmative.
Days later, Ice Universe reported that both the Flip 5 and the unknown Fold 5 “will adopt waterdrop hinges and support IPX8 waterproofing.”

Samsung has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, but if this leak turns out to be true, we are talking about an important improvement in this series of company foldables. The previous four Z Flips have a small external display, pared down on basic features. A bigger screen looks promising.
