Galaxy Z Fold 5
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is not just a smartphone; it’s a technological marvel that fits right into your pocket. The most striking feature of this device is its new hinge design, which has almost completely eliminated the gap between the halves when folded.

Galaxy Z Flip 5
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, on the other hand, is a blend of style and substance. The most noticeable upgrade is the external AMOLED display, which has grown from 1.9″ in the predecessor to a more functional 3.4″. This larger display allows for a variety of widgets, notification viewing, and even responding to messages.
The Flip 5 also features the new hinge design, ensuring a nearly complete closure. It is powered by the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy processor, ensuring a smooth user experience. The internal screen remains a 6.7″ panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, and the camera setup remains unchanged with two 12 MP modules.
