The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 stand out as the slimmest and most harmoniously designed members of the Galaxy Z series to date. However, their design isn’t just about looks; it’s also about ensuring durability to cater to users’ needs.
Prior to transitioning from the production line to users’ pockets, these flexible devices undergo a series of exacting reliability assessments. These tests guarantee that they can endure the trials of time, accommodating various lifestyles, and adhering to the highest quality benchmarks. Both the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are meticulously fashioned to satisfy the expectations of durability.
The primary screen is furnished with a shock-absorbing layer and a revamped rear structure that bolsters the display’s robustness. Coupled with IPX8 support, Armor Aluminium frames, and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® 2 utilized for both the Flex Window and rear cover, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 ensure the safeguarding that consumers demand, fortified further by the Flex Hinge. This novel integrated hinge mechanism incorporates a dual rail configuration, diffusing external impacts effectively.
Advancing these endeavors, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 introduce a broader range of recycled materials in a more extensive array of internal and external components compared to prior Galaxy Z series smartphones. Samsung not only incorporates an expanded assortment of recycled materials in each device but also significantly amplifies the number of device components that integrate a minimum of 10% post-consumer recycled plastic or pre-consumer recycled glass, or an average of 22% pre-consumer recycled glass. In contrast to the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4, where recycled materials were used in six internal components, both the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 incorporate recycled materials into 15 device components.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Fold 5 showcase a more diverse selection of recycled materials in comparison to their predecessors, encompassing pre-consumer recycled glass and aluminum, alongside post-consumer recycled plastics derived from discarded fishing nets, water barrels, and PET bottles. Even the packaging boxes utilize paper made entirely from 100% recycled material. These innovations are also carefully conceived to promote extended longevity. Each device is accompanied by five years of security updates and up to four generations of OS upgrades, contributing to the elongation of the product’s lifecycle.
The design’s minimalistic and sleek appearance, housing specialized hinge functionality, underscores Samsung’s dedication and the intrinsic elegance of essential design principles. The innovative Flex Hinge plays an instrumental role in enabling the foldable experience while upholding a harmonious and robust design aesthetic.
