Samsung has announced its next-generation folding-screen products, including the well-known Z Flip phone, along with new, high-end tablets that are water-resistant and Galaxy Watch smartwatches. The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 were presented on Wednesday at an event in South Korea, the company’s country of origin, along with a new line of Android tablets from the Tab S9 family and the Galaxy Watch 6, which runs Google’s Wear OS operating system. The market-dominating Flip series has been updated with a significantly bigger exterior cover screen that can be used for rapid message responses, widgets, and as a viewfinder for snapping selfies with the two primary 12MP cameras. The internal folding screen also includes a unique water-drop hinge design, which the firm claims is 25% more robust and lowers the wrinkle in the center of the display. This design also enables the phone to fold completely flat with no gap along the edges when closed. The water-resistant Z Flip5 is slimmer, lighter, and equipped with Qualcomm’s quicker Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip than its predecessor. For its fifth generation, Samsung’s groundbreaking folding phone-tablet hybrid has also undergone some important improvements. The Z Fold5 closes without a gap at the sides thanks to the enhanced water-drop hinge design shared with the Flip. The internal screen is 25% more durable, brighter, and stylus-compatible.
