Release date and price of the Z Flip 5 

Release date and price of the Z Flip 5

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 will be available for pre-order starting on the announcement day (July 26th) and will be released for sale on August 11th. The regular 256GB version will set you back $999 / £1,049, while the 512GB version will cost you $1,099 / £1,149.

While it’s an increase from its previous pricing in the UK, it’s the same as the US debut price of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. In exchange, Samsung is providing twice as much storage space as the Z Flip 4 comes with by default. Aside from offering different percentages off for trade-ins that are valued enough, Samsung will update your storage to a maximum of 512GB if you pre-order.

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Cameras

Similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a 10MP front-facing camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, and a 12MP primary camera on the rear.

However, with the expanded preview window on the cover display, the ability to choose between normal and warm color tones, the ability to select or delete images on the fly, and the overall improvement in the ease of using the primary or ultrawide sensors for selfies, it’s safe to say that all of the cameras are selfie cameras.

In addition, Samsung claims that the Z Flip 5’s cameras will have less lens flare, and they’ve improved the FlexCam controls so that you have more choices while capturing pictures with the phone half open.

Galaxy Z Flip 5 displays and  Design

A 6.7-inch OLED (organic light-emitting diode) front display with full high definition (FHD+) and an adaptive 120 Hz refresh rate is housed within the Galaxy Z Flip 5. The upgraded outside display, which was formerly just 1.9 inches wide, is now 3.4 inches across, which is the main story. With a maximum brightness output of 1,504 nits, it is among the brightest foldable phone screens we have tested.

Enhanced realism, while also facilitating the use of widgets for a variety of Samsung, Google, and third-party applications. Although accessing the phone is still necessary for most tasks, the Z Flip 5’s widgets make it possible to do more than ever before.

Gorilla Glass Victus 2 is the newest toughened glass, and Samsung upgraded the front and rear panels, as well as the inside display, with a harder ultra-thin glass (UTG) layer. Those come on top of the already-familiar Armour Aluminium body and IPX8 waterproofing. Unfortunately, Samsung’s latest foldables have not yet received an official dust protection grade.

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Performance

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy powers the internals of the Galaxy Z Flip 5. This particular processor is also found in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Tab S9 series, in addition to the Galaxy S23 series, which were introduced earlier this year. All of the benchmark tests that we ran did show improvement.

Along with the Snapdragon chipset, you can choose between 256GB and 512GB of storage and 8GB of LPDDR5X RAM. Although the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has a 1 terabyte option, you probably won’t need that much capacity on the device itself to save all of your data. Increasing the basic storage capacity by 100% is, to say the least, a kind gesture from Samsung.

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Software and features 

Operating System-wise, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is no different from other recent Galaxy phones; it’s Android 13 with OneUI 5.1. You have a little more room to maneuver, however, since it folds up.

Widgets for the cover screen are the most significant update. Along with the various default applications from Samsung and Google, this also includes YouTube, Spotify, Netflix, WhatsApp, and, most importantly, your Samsung Pay wallet, which is great for NFC transactions and other such things. Just like previously, you can check your alerts, see the time at all times, and use Android Quick Settings for things like brightness and Wi-Fi.

Galaxy Z Flip 5 Battery and charging

The Galaxy Z Flip 5 retains the same 3,700 mAh battery as its predecessor, and it also supports wireless and reverse wireless charging in addition to the same 25W wired charging. After an hour of improvement over the Z Flip 4, the Flip 5 achieved a record of 9 hours and 53 minutes in Tom’s Guide’s battery benchmark test.

With pre-orders opening on July 26th, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 is scheduled for sale on August 11th. With the normal 256GB storage option, the phone will cost $999 / £1,049, while the 512GB storage version will cost $1,099 / £1,149. This is a price increase over the last U.K. launch, however, it is the same as the U.S. debut price of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. To sweeten the bargain, Samsung is increasing the default capacity to 512 GB and giving twice as much storage as before.


Will Samsung release the Z Flip 5?

Unveiling it in South Korea, the home nation of the firm, was a first for the Galaxy Unpacked event. August 11, 2023, was the release date of the phone.

Is the Flip 5 good for gaming?

Keep in mind that Geekbench only checks the CPU. While both the Razr+ and the Flip 5 achieved respectable results on the PCMark Work 3.0 test—which evaluates typical mobile tasks—the Razr+ achieved 15,416 and the Flip 5 achieved 14,377. Genshin Impact ran smoothly at 60 frames per second on medium settings, demonstrating great gaming performance.
