Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 Malaysia ; All You Need To Know
“Samsung is revolutionizing the mobile industry with foldables by setting the standard and continually refining the experience. Every day, more people choose our foldables because they offer an experience people want that they can’t get on any other device. Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 are the latest devices that prove our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers through innovative technology.” TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics
It’s that time of year again! Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced its fifth generation of Galaxy foldables: Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5. Compared to the Z Fold4, there are several updates to the Z Fold5 that makes it a completely different phone.
Offering an immersive, large screen and a long-lasting battery in the thinnest, lightest Fold yet, Galaxy Z Fold5 is easy to take anywhere, while delivering the most powerful performance in the Galaxy Z series. There’s not much to say if we’re wonder if there’s a big difference in how it looks as the focus this time around is giving a larger screen without increasing its form factor.
The 7.6-inch Main Screen provides expansive and uninterrupted viewing so users can enjoy their favorite movie in portrait or landscape. Plus, peak brightness has increased by more than 30%, up to 1750 nits for an optimal viewing experience outdoors even under bright sunlight.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 feature a wider variety of recycled materials than their previous generations, including pre-consumer recycled glass and aluminum and post-consumer recycled plastics, sourced from discarded fishing nets, water barrels and PET bottles. Even the paper used for their packaging box is made using 100 percent recycled material.
Both Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 are carefully designed to meet durability expectations. The main screen is equipped with a shock dispersion layer and a redesigned back for a more solid display. Along with IPX8 support, Armor Aluminum frames, and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®2 applied to both the Flex Window and back cover, Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 provide the protection consumers expect, enhanced further by Flex Hinge. This new integrated hinge module features a dual rail structure, diffusing external impacts.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 gets the flagship treatment and gets the battery efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy, as seen on even the S23 Ultra. If you’d like to find out just how different it is from a regular 8 Gen 2, you can read our article HERE.
As for memory, all models have 12GB RAM all across the board, with the choice of 256GB , 512GB or 1TB in storage.
For a long lifecycle, Samsung backs the Galaxy Z Fold5 with five years of security updates and four generations of OS upgrades.
In the software front tackling productivity,
The Galaxy Z Fold has been a pioneer in transforming everyday productivity through a robust, big screen experience, evolving from Multi Window and App Continuity to a wide range of features including Taskbar, drag and drop, and optimization of third-party apps. S Pen Fold Edition introduced in the third generation Fold in 2021, has also been fine-tuned to deliver a superior writing experience on Galaxy Z Fold5. These features and tools come together to deliver powerful productivity on a large screen and enable users to complete important tasks from anywhere.
The improved Taskbar enables dynamic productivity by allowing users to quickly switch between frequently used apps. Now up to four recent apps are at the ready for more efficient working. Newly enhanced two-handeddrag and drop can also ramp up productivity when moving content between apps and screens. Simply touch and hold an image in Samsung Gallery with one finger and use another finger to open the Samsung Notes app to drag-and-drop the image. With hidden pop-up, an app can continue running in the background, allowing users to watch video content in full screen and chat with friends in a floating pop-up on the side of the screen.
As much as it looks very similar on paper, the improvements lie in the software side of things this time around. The Galaxy Z Fold5 adds AI solution improvements to the powerful camera experience, bringing every photo to life. Get creative, even in low light, with improved Nightography capabilities that optimize photos and videos in ambient lighting conditions. The AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm corrects any visual noise that typically spoils low-light images while enhancing details and color tone. Even from a distance, photos are clearer with the digital 10X zoom.
Basically, the same hardware gets a software bump as the Fold4 back then had a pretty decent camera setup, so if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. You start off strong with a 50MP wide angle shooter that’s supplemented with a 12MP ultrawide and 10MP telephoto zoom capable of up to 30x of Samsung’s infamous Space Zoom.
As for selfies, there are 2 options, using the cover screen’s 10MP shooter or 4MP inner display shooter.
The Galaxy Z Fold5 will be available in Malaysia nationwide from 18 August 2023 onwards.
