Future Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 gets more color options

Rumors ·

Insider Ross Young has shared some more information about the future colors of the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Through his contacts, he thinks he knows what future colors Samsung's next folding device will come out in.

According to a tweet by Ross Young, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will come out in the colors "Blue, Green, Platinum and Yellow." According to Ross, the existing colors "Beige, Gray, Light Green, and Light Pink" will remain because they sell well.

We believe Ross' tweet brings more confusion than clarity. For example, there is already a blue version of the Flip4, and the green and yellow versions are already available as Samsung's Bespoke Edition. In a follow-up, Ross confirmed that there indeed appear to be two blue hues coming; one blue and one light blue. What he further calls "Beige" is officially called "Pink Gold," and by "Light Pink," he probably means "Bora Purple. Furthermore, we think that by "Gray," he means "Graphite Black".

New colors for Fold 5 as well

Ross Young has a solid track record, so we take his tweet seriously. In the same tweet, he thinks the future Fold5 will come out in Dark Blue and Platinum in addition to Beige, Black, and Light Blue.

Samsung is likely to unveil its next generation of foldables in late July. That's two weeks earlier than usual, though Samsung has not officially announced that date. Both the Flip 5 and Fold 5 are likely to get an updated hinge that closes completely flat. The Flip 5 is further said to get a more extensive cover screen.

Possible launch date Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 mentioned

Rumors ·

We hear a date is mentioned when Samsung will announce the Fold 5 and Flip 5. It could just happen Wednesday, July 26. That's earlier than usual, but not by much.

Samsung has two new foldables to announce. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 are eager to introduce themselves to the general public. And now that Google has all the attention due to the launch of the Pixel Fold, it is now time to bring the spotlight back. And so, a bit earlier than usual, expect an Unpacked Event.

That Samsung would announce the Fold5 and Flip5 a bit earlier was already mentioned. Normally Samsung announces its latest Galaxy Z models in August, but this year, it will be at the end of July. That's two weeks earlier than usual. At least, thats what Korea's Chosun thinks.

Reason remains unclear

They predict Wednesday, July 26, as a possible launch date for Samsung's latest foldables. Sales will then begin Aug. 11. Chosun does not think the reason for this is so Samsung can compete directly with the Pixel Fold, as previously suggested, but to increase semiconductor sales.

Just a bit of patience...

Whether that is, the reason remains to be seen. The processor slated for the new Galaxy Z models is reportedly a Qualcomm Snapdragon made by competitor TSMC. It is also said that the sales of the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Fold4 are disappointing. Perhaps that's the real reason.

Flip5 gets much larger cover screen

Rumors ·

In addition to product renders of the Fold5, we are also treated to renders of the Flip5. The foldable device has a considerably larger cover screen and a remarkable shape.

Samsung cannot stay behind with the Flip 5. Motorola is on the verge of announcing a similar device with a much larger cover screen. Samsung also goes in that direction, but the second screen won't be square or rectangular. Instead, the shape looks most like a tab.

These renders also originate from @onleaks, which has teamed up with MediaPeanut for this leak. Also presumably like the Z Flip 5, the Fold5 will get the revamped hinge that closes completely flat. This results in a much thinner device when folded.

Less visible fold

The new hinge has another added benefit. It makes the crease less visible. We noticed this crease during our Flip4 review.

Besides an updated hinge and a more extensive cover screen, the other specifications will sound familiar. In this, the device differs little from the existing Flip 4—for example, a 6.7-inch screen inside, a dual camera outside, and the latest Snapdragon processor inside. However, Samsung possibly has another surprise in store regarding the software.

Galaxy Unpacked

The unveiling of the Galaxy Flip 5 is scheduled for late July. Usually, Samsung announces its new generation of foldables in August, but rumors about bringing this forward are gaining traction. In addition to Samsung, Google is also releasing a foldable soon, and Samsung may want to attack it fully.

More and more rumors surface about Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Rumors ·

We hear more and more rumors about the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 5. Talks about what changes it has, which specifications will be added, and which features will remain the same. Time to look at closer look at those.

Now that the Galaxy S23 series has been out for quite a while, it's time to look forward to the next big Galaxy launch. Later this year Samsung is expected to unveil the Fold 5 and Flip 5. Rumors of the latter are surfacing at an increasing pace.

1. Larger cover screen

Starting with a more extensive cover screen. Where Motorola and Oppo already showed models with a more comprehensive cover screen, Samsung also seems to be moving in that direction. For example, the external displays of the current Oppo Find N2 Flip and Motorola Razr 2022 have dimensions between 3.26 and 2.7 inches. Samsung, for now, remains stuck at a small 1.7 inch. But possibly the Galaxy Z Flip 5 stretches that to 3.4 inches.

2. Colors

A reasonably new rumor tells us something about the future colors of the Z Flip 5. While the Flip 4 is available in Blue, Bora Purple, Pink Gold, and Graphite Black, the Flip 5 is expected to be available in Beige, Gray, Light Green, and Light Pink. This is reminiscent of the current color offering of the S23 series, although that green version is a bit darker than light green.

3. Cameras

And then there's news about the cameras on the back. The Flip traditionally has two cameras, and that will remain. But, disappointingly, Samsung is also sticking to the exact resolution, twice a 12MP sensor. Now there is more to it than megapixels if you want to shoot a perfect picture, but we would have liked to have seen at least a 50MP one.

The lack of a dedicated zoom camera also remains a miss for the Flip. For that, you'll have to go with the (more expensive) Fold 5. The similar camera specs only tell one side of the story, though. We don't know what sensors Samsung will use. Possibly that will still bring significant improvements to shooting better photos. Who knows.
