The first thing to note about the Galaxy Z Flip5 is its truly portable design. When folded, it’s a compact 85.1 x 71.9 x 15.1 mm, roughly the size of a credit card. Unfolded, it reveals its slim and sleek profile at 165.1 x 71.9 x 6.9 mm. Despite its unique structure, it weighs a surprisingly light 187g. Talk about being pocket-friendly!
The build is impressive too, with a combination of a plastic front (when opened) and a Gorilla Glass Victus 2 back that ensures its robustness. We can’t forget to mention the Armor aluminum frame that offers increased drop and scratch resistance. It’s also armed with IPX8 water resistance, surviving a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
But what’s a foldable phone without an extraordinary display? The Z Flip5 sports a Foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen, complete with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, and a peak brightness of 1200 nits. The 6.7 inches, 1080 x 2640 pixels resolution display (~426 ppi density) translates into a screen-to-body ratio of an impressive ~85.5%. The outside cover display is a sturdy Super AMOLED of 3.4 inches, just enough for quick notifications and updates.
Running on Android 13 with Samsung’s One UI 5.1.1, the Z Flip5 is powered by Qualcomm’s advanced SM8550-AB Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset built on a 4 nm process. The octa-core CPU and the Adreno 740 GPU ensure that your device is speedy and responsive, whether you’re scrolling through social media or playing graphics-intensive games.
For storage enthusiasts, the Galaxy Z Flip5 comes in two variants: a 256GB with 8GB RAM, and a 512GB also with 8GB RAM. Please note, there’s no card slot for additional storage, but with that much space, we think you’re covered!
The phone packs a dual main camera setup, a 12 MP wide-angle lens, and another 12 MP ultra-wide lens. Features like LED flash, HDR, panorama, and video capabilities up to 4K@60fps mean you’re well equipped for any photographic situation. The single 10 MP wide-angle front camera ensures your selfie game is on point too!
The Z Flip5 doesn’t skimp on audio, offering 32-bit/384kHz audio with stereo speakers tuned by AKG. For those still hoping for a 3.5mm jack, sorry to disappoint – there isn’t one. But on the connectivity front, you’re well served with Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.3, and a range of positioning systems including GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, and BDS.
The side-mounted fingerprint sensor and other sensors like accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, and barometer ensure the device is smart and secure. And don’t forget the Samsung Pay support for those who prefer going cashless.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 is powered by a Li-Po 3700 mAh battery, with an advertised 50% charge in just 30 minutes with the 25W wired charger. There’s also 15W wireless charging and a nifty 4.5W reverse wireless charging feature.
The Flip5 comes in a plethora of colors, from Mint to Lavender to Graphite. Whether you prefer understated elegance or a pop of color, there’s a Galaxy Z Flip5 to match your style.
