Samsung is expected to unveil its Galaxy S23 series smartphones at its first Galaxy Unpacked event of the year in a few weeks. In addition to seeing the entire Galaxy S23 lineup in recently leaked renders, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 appears to be already receiving the news.

The foldable display of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 may have its crease reduced by a novel hinge design when it launches. The device may still provide waterproof protection against the elements in addition to the new hinge.

New Features will see in Galaxy Z Fold 5

  • The new phone will reportedly include a droplet hinge, according to Ice Universe, a relatively reputable leaker. If you are unfamiliar with this term, the water drop or “droplet” hinge design was first introduced in 2019, allowing foldable displays to form a water drop shape when closed.
  • This means that the display won’t have as much of a crease and won’t be as obvious as Samsung’s current offerings, which use a different kind of hinge mechanism that has been called the U design by some.

This has become a hot topic over the past few years because other smartphone competitors in Asia have outperformed Samsung’s foldable displays. Even though Samsung has produced dependable products, some have criticized the company, claiming that it has been on cruise control. There had been a lot of speculation up until this point that Samsung hadn’t been using the water drop design because it couldn’t get an IP rating for its devices.

However, things appear to be changing with the Galaxy Z Fold 5, as Ice Universe reports that the new hinge is waterproof and is finally here. This could mean that Samsung has finally been able to use a new hinge design and keep the inside components safe and dry. It is currently unknown whether the handset will include IP certification and whether it will be reduced or enhanced in comparison to previous models.
