Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 does not offer many major changes, but it still comes with some improvements. Similar to the Z Flip 5, the Z Fold 5 comes with the upgraded Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and an updated hinge that allows the device to hold flat when closed.
This makes the device much thinner than its previous variant, measuring at 13.4mm (previously 14.2mm) when closed. Some other upgrades include a boost to the screen’s brightness, which now sits at 1,750 nits.
The price of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 remains unchanged at $1,799.
