Galaxy Z Flip 5 to have much larger cover display and hidden crease

Next year, the Galaxy Z Flip series might receive some of the most important upgrades since the launch of the first model in 2020. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 will have a larger cover display and a new hinge. The updated hinge design will reportedly make the foldable display crease less noticeable.

The ongoing Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a 1.9-inch cover display with fairly good usability. Next year, however, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will reportedly have a cover display larger than 3.0 inches. In other words, the cover display will be around 60% larger or more. (via @DSCCRoss)

Samsung has already increased the size of the cover screen before, and this would be the second time this element of the Galaxy Z Flip gets revamped. Before the Galaxy Z Flip 3 came along, the foldable flip phones had to make do with a 1.1-inch cover display.

A less visible foldable display crease thanks to redesigned hinge

Another big upgrade the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will reportedly receive next year concerns the hinge design. The phone will have a new hinge that should bring at least one benefit: a less visible horizontal crease on the inner foldable display.

These are fundamental changes to the Galaxy Z Flip series, which is probably why we’re hearing about them this early in the phone’s development. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is only a couple of months old. Samsung released it in late August and appears to be on its way to becoming the most successful foldable phone yet.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 was recently named “Product of the year” in a competition that doesn’t even cover electronic devices. Next year, Samsung aims to ship 26 million foldable Galaxy phones, and upgrading the Galaxy Z Flip 5 with a larger cover screen and a better hinge will surely play a part of that strategy. Samsung will likely release the Galaxy Z Flip 5 in August-September 2023.
