While we all wait for the official release of Samsung’s latest flagship foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, a sneak peek of the official press renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has surfaced online ahead of the event, thanks to a leak obtained by an Indian tech publication.
The leaked renders first revealed by Smartprix showcase the Galaxy Z Fold 5 in all its glory. At first glance, it retains several design elements from its predecessor, the Fold 4. This includes the USB Type-C port, speaker grills, and microphone locations.
However, Samsung has made notable enhancements, with a considerably thinner bezel that promises to elevate the user’s visual experience by significantly increasing the screen-to-body ratio.

Although the color selection for the new device is yet to be confirmed, the leaked render gives us a closer glimpse at a variant in Blue. Another feature that catches the eye is the S Pen, which is likely to be sold separately, continuing the trend established with the previous model.
The back of the device features a triple camera setup, reminiscent of the Fold 4. However, a slight relocation of the LED near the rear cameras indicates Samsung’s meticulous attention to detail and efforts towards perfecting the design.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will house Samsung’s custom-designed Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, a detail previously disclosed in other leaks. This powerful chipset is currently deployed in Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S23 series, suggesting that the Fold 5 will pack a similar performance punch.
With its refined hinge design and likely S Pen support, the Fold 5 is poised to carry forward Samsung’s legacy in the realm of foldable smartphones. However, it remains to be seen whether these upgrades, including the potential enhancements in the camera department, will enable Samsung to maintain its competitive edge in the face of emerging rivals like the Google Pixel Fold and rumoured foldable from OnePlus.
As anticipation continues to build, all eyes are now on Samsung’s Unpacked event next month, where the tech giant is expected to officially lift the veil on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5.
