While the release of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 is still a few weeks away, rumors about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 as well as Samsung’s ambitious plans for the series are already circulating.
According to ETNews , Samsung has lofty objectives for its forthcoming foldable devices.
Samsung reportedly intends to sell over 10 million units of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 in the second half of 2023 on their own, as well as over 15 million units of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 when they are both formally revealed. Those are really significant statistics, much above what Samsung was able to achieve with the previously released Fold 3 and Flip 3, which together sold almost 7.1 million units, a significant increase from the previous year.
Notably, the Z Flip form factor is heavily emphasized here. Only two million Fold 5 devices and eight million Flip 5 units out of Samsung’s 10 million unit objective for the fifth generation.
In addition to those specifics, this article also presents some of the first information about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is anticipated to maintain its three rear image sensors, with a 50MP ISOCELL GN3 serving as the main camera. A 12MP front camera is also mentioned, although there is no second front sensor. In light of this, it appears conceivable that Samsung has plans to enhance the selfie camera located beneath the inner display or, in a less likely scenario, to completely remove the selfie camera.
It appears that the camera specifications for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 are still being worked out.
Apparently, Samsung intends to employ the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip for the Fold 5 and Flip 5. This is another crucial tidbit. Since the original Galaxy Fold, using Qualcomm’s flagship chip has been the standard, it shouldn’t come as a major surprise. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is anticipated to be used by the Flip 4 and Fold 4.
