The fifth generation of the latest Samsung Galaxy Z series comes packed with bigger screens, improved performance and endless customisation options, taking the foldables experience to another level.
Building on the momentum of the previous generation, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 provide foldable experiences that open a world of new possibilities. We know users really enjoy using the Flip because of its pocketable design that enables creativity and self-expression. With the Fold, users love its ability to easily switch between work and play on a large screen, allowing them to stay productive while also being able to tap into countless entertainment options. Whether you choose Flip or Fold, Samsung is continuing to break the boundaries on foldables.
Since 2011, Samsung has invested in research and development, new user experiences and innovative manufacturing processes. After releasing five generations of foldable devices and refining the experience each year, Samsung has re-shaped its smartphone market, while solidifying its position as the clear foldable pioneer. The Z series also brings innovation based on Samsung’s openness philosophy, an open mindset that means Samsung constantly strives to challenge boundaries, foster forward-looking thinking and encourage open collaboration with other industry partners. This philosophy is what sets Samsung apart.
Samsung’s strong belief in this category and its potential means it has been consistently refining and optimising the portfolio with each generation. Every element of the Galaxy Z series has been purposefully designed to ensure a fit for any lifestyle, while providing versatility and durability. Samsung has built the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 to last longer with four generations of OS upgrade and five years of security updates. With an immersive large screen, durability is important. This key element of the Z series can be folded over 200 000 times, while maintaining its durability and strength.
Samsung users can now reliably experience Galaxy for as long as possible. The new Flex hinge makes the foldable experience possible, while offering an aesthetically balanced and solid design. This newly integrated hinge module features a dual rail structure, diffusing external impacts to enhance stability and durability, while also providing a sleeker and more streamlined design.
