We’ve heard a lot of rumors about Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 screen sizes recently. Now another rumor has jumped into the mix, with ice universe (opens in a new tab) revealing the screen sizes for both phones. Not short on confidence, this leaker claims they are “100%” correct with their predictions.
According to IceUniverse, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will come with a 6.7-inch main screen and a 3.4-inch cover screen, with a weight of 187 grams/6.59 ounces. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will reportedly have a 7.6-inch main panel and a 6.2-inch cover screen, with a weight of 254 grams/8.95 ounces. These details were also corroborated by another leaker, Yogesh Brar (opens in a new tab)on Twitter.
Either way, these sizes are a bit different than some previous rumors claimed. The Z Fold 5 has been reported to have a 7.2-inch screen, which is slightly smaller than the Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, IceUniverse claims it will be 7.6-inch, with a screen of 6.2 inch cover – the Exact same sizes as last year.
Likewise, the Z Flip 5’s supposed 6/7-inch internal display is exactly the same as the Galaxy Z Flip 4 – but the cover display looks ready for an upgrade. There have been controversies over the size of the Z Flip 5’s cover screen, with some rumors suggesting it could reach 3.8 inches.
But yesterday analyst Ross Young corrected his previous claims, saying there was some confusion as part of the display assembly would be 3.8-inches. The size of usable screen space is said to be 3.4 inches, which matches what IceUniverse said here. Although it’s not as big as the 3.6-inch cover screen on the Oppo Find N2 Flip, it’s still much bigger than the 1.9-inch cover screen on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and other earlier models.
It also means that Samsung has the opportunity to follow Oppo’s lead and offer better and more versatile use of apps and widgets on the cover screen. While technically possible on previous Z Flip models, the small screen space meant there were limits to what users could accomplish.
The Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 are also expected to get the new “teardrop” hinge, which will help reduce (or possibly even eliminate) the crease in the middle of the screen. This is achieved by making the screen crease taller and shallower, while allowing the screen to partially roll into the body of the phone, reducing the visual impact of the crease.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 are slated to arrive in late summer, and we’ll bring you all the latest and greatest news as we hear it. In the meantime, check out our Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 hub and Galaxy Z Flip 5 page for all the latest rumors and leaks.
