New Flex Window

The latest Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 comes loaded with a new Flex Window, which is now three times bigger than the Galaxy Z Flip 4. You get a 3.4-inch Super AMOLED display as the cover display with this one that comes with a resolution of 720 x 748 pixels and offers 306ppi pixel density. The bigger Flex Window also comes with some interesting features. The most prominent one is the ability to match the watch face of the Galaxy Watch 6 on it. One can also get a lot of useful information on the new Flex Window.

To start with, one can check multiple widgets to see the weather, control music, get stock market updates, and more. One can also switch between the widgets as well so that you don’t even need to flip it open to check notifications and more. Talking about notifications or messages, one can browse through call history or reply to texts on the go with the Quick Reply feature that provides a full QWERTY keyboard for an easy typing experience.

Classy Display

Although the Flex Window or cover display is improved, but the real charm lies in the display. You get a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X display that offers some great viewing angles. And the happiness of flipping it to open is pure bliss. The display also features a resolution of 2640 x 1080 pixels and comes with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, making it one of the few foldable smartphones with such display prowess.

Flagship Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is not just a design marvel, but a powerhouse. The device packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, which is specially customised for Galaxy devices, meaning that you will get better performance than the vanilla variant of the chipset. Moreover, the device packs 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage. The foldable smartphone also packs a decent 3,700mAh battery with 25W wired and wireless charging support. It runs on Android 13, which is based on One UI 5.1.1. All these features make it a powerful smartphone at this price point.

Versatile Cameras

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 gets a major upgrade in terms of cameras. You now get a dual-camera setup that comes with a combination of a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and a 12MP wide-angle lens with dual pixel AF, OIS support, and f/1.8 aperture. For selfies, you also get a 10MP camera with f/2.2 aperture.

However, what makes this special are the new features. To start with, the larger Flex Window also allows you to take high-quality photos from the dual-camera setup. Then there is the new FlexCam that allows customers to take photos hands-free from creative angles. Moreover, they edit and view photos in Flex Mode and can adjust colour tones or delete them on the go. You also get Dual Preview that allows your friend to see themselves while you take the photo. This is not. The phone also features improved Nightography and 10x digital zoom.

Sleek Yet Durable Design

Last but not least is the design of the new foldable smartphone. Samsung has left no stone unturned to make the device a design marvel. The latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 comes with a solid design language, which looks premium as well. You get armour aluminium frames that make it durable along with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 protection on the Flex Window. The device is IPX8 rated, which makes it water and dust resistant. However, the foldable mechanism is what makes it special. Once folded, it transforms into a pocket-sized device that you can carry with ease. When you unfold it, you get a sleek-looking device that is just 6.9mm thick, making it one of the sleekest flip smartphones on the market.
