We’ve raised the bar for ergonomics for foldable smartphones. A millimeter difference in device thickness might not seem like a huge change, but every gram and millimeter in a foldable device requires an engineering breakthrough. It requires ingenuity with passion. When done well, the benefit to the users is enormous. That’s why we set out to make our latest foldable devices slimmer and lighter than our previous generations.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 are expected to adopt a new hinge design that allows both devices to eliminate the “hinge gap” that was present in previous iterations and also reduce weight. For example, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is expected to be slightly heavier than the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
On upcoming tablets and smartwatches, Roh notes, the devices work “in harmony” as a connected experience.

Reservations for the all-new lineup are now open, with Samsung offering a $50 credit which can be applied to the cost of the device (for the first time ever) for those who have reserved their place in line.
