An alleged photo of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 has just popped up on Twitter and shows the flip phone sporting a large cover display.
The photo appears to be a stolen shot, zoomed from across a room. It looks to be an engineering unit that is clad in a boxy case (probably to hide the phone’s overall design) with what looks like the unit’s identification number that we sometimes see on Samsung review units.
Based on the stolen shot, the Galaxy Z Flip5 will sport a large cover display that takes up a significant area of the top cover. We can also see that the dual cameras are now in a horizontal orientation to accommodate the screen, as opposed to the Galaxy Z Flip4‘s vertical layout.
According to rumors floating around the web, the Galaxy Z Flip5’s cover screen is a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 720×748. It is expected to run Google apps, such as Google Maps, Messages, and YouTube, that are optimized for the outside screen, and most likely other third-party apps. We’ve seen something similar on the OPPO Find N2 Flip and the Spotify widget, so why not on Samsung’s flip phone.
Rounding up other rumors about the Galaxy Z Flip5, we should expect to see a new “droplet” implementation for the hinge like the one on the Find N2 Flip, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 4.0 storage, a long 6.7-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and an IP58 dust and water resistance rating.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is expected to launch in Samsung’s Unpacked event this July.
