Although the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are yet to be announced, speculations about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 and Samsung’s ambitious plans for the series are already circulating.
As reported by ETNews, Samsung has lofty aspirations for its future foldable smartphone lineup.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 are expected to sell over 10 million units in the second half of 2023, even before they are formally introduced. Samsung aims to sell over 15 million units of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. That’s a significant increase over Samsung’s previous Fold 3 and Flip 3 sales of 7.1 million devices, which was a significant increase over the year before.
The Z Flip form factor is a major focus here. To reach Samsung’s 10-million-unit objective, just 2 million Fold 5 devices will be produced, while 8 million Flip 5 units will be produced as part of the fifth generation.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 are also mentioned in this report for the first time.
When looking at the Galaxy Z Fold 5, three rear image sensors are anticipated, with a 50MP ISOCELL GN3 as the main camera and a 16MP front camera. The front-facing camera is mentioned, but no second sensor has been included. Even though Samsung may be aiming to enhance or remove the under-display selfie camera, it’s conceivable that they’ll keep it in place.
The camera specifications for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 are yet to be confirmed.
It’s also worth noting that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor will reportedly be used in the Fold 5 and Flip 5. Since the first Galaxy Fold, Qualcomm’s flagship processor has been used. This isn’t a great surprise. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is projected to power the Fold 4 and Flip 4.
