With the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung has almost perfected the foldable flip phone, but there are still some notable issues, and at least one of them could be fixed with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5.
According to Ross Young(opens in a new tab), a backer with a strong track record, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is likely to have a cover screen larger than 3 inches. In a reply to the tweet where they made this claim (spotted by GSMArena (opens in a new tab)), they got more specific (opens in a new tab), saying it will probably be around 3,3 to 3,4 inches.
Although they also noted that they heard the Galaxy Z Flip 4 would have a 2-inch clamshell display, and it actually came in at 1.9-inches, so they acknowledged that they might be a bit off.
However, in any case, if the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a cover screen that is roughly 3-3,4 inches, then it will be much larger than the cover screen on the Z Flip 4, and that could make it a lot bigger. more helpful and helpful. Useful.
It'll still be too small for any serious interaction, but remember that early iPhones only had 3,5-inch screens, so it could be almost as big as that, and still have a much larger foldable screen. también.

But that's not all, Young also claims that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 will have a different hinge design that will reduce the visibility of the seam on the foldable screen. So if Young is right, it looks like the Z Flip 5 could use some significant improvements.
We haven't heard much more about it yet, aside from the credible claim that it will use the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, but expect to hear a lot more rumors as we get closer to launch, which it likely will. August 2023.
(*4*)Analysis: more updates needed
Increasing the screen size of the clamshell would provide a substantial improvement, but that's not the only area in which Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip range has to work.
Battery life has been a low point so far, the cameras, while solid, don't include a telephoto lens, and while Samsung has impressively added water resistance to the Z Flip 4, there's no dust resistance.
These issues can be difficult to fix, especially while keeping the price somewhat acceptable, but there's certainly room for improvement in the Galaxy Z Flip 5, and given that the Motorola Razr 2023 is likely to offer significant competition, it's likely that some will be needed. improvements for the Z Flip. 5 to rank among the best foldable phones.
