Samsung Galaxy launches Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 smartphones

Samsung has revealed its fifth generation of Galaxy foldable smartphones: the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5.

James Kitto, VP Head of MX Division, Samsung UK and Ireland, commented: “We know that when customers get our latest foldable devices into their hands, with their innovative design and industry leading features, they won’t be able to put them down. Few other possessions work as hard as the phone in your pocket, and it’s increasingly integral to our daily lives. Not only do our consumers expect their phone to withstand the daily demands from a durability perspective, but they want their smartphone to reflect their personality.

“Our latest foldable range offers a next generation smartphone for every taste and lifestyle. From the Galaxy Z Flip5 – one of the world’s most pocketable smartphones; to the multi-tasking powerhouse that is the Galaxy Z Fold5, we can’t wait for our loyal customers, and new recruits to Samsung, to experience them and join the flip side.”

The Flip5’s new Flex Window, now 3.78 times larger than the previous generation, offers a range of new capabilities for users and, potentially, for advertisers. It provides more customisation options, including informative and graphical clocks that can match the face design of a user’s Galaxy Watch6 series, as well as stylish frames. In addition, Galaxy Z Flip5’s new Flipsuit Case provides device protection with a changeable NFC card, so users can match their Flex Window design and case design for even more personalisation options.

The Galaxy Z Flip5 also adds AI solution improvements to the powerful camera experience, with improved Nightography capabilities that optimise 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 colour tone.   

The Galaxy Z Fold, meanwhile, 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 optimisation 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 Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 feature a wider variety of recycled materials than their previous generations, including pre-consumer recycled glass and aluminium and post-consumer recycled plastics, sourced from discarded fishing nets, water barrels and PET bottles. These innovations have also been purposefully designed for optimised longevity. Each device comes with five years of security updates and four generations of OS upgrades, helping to extend the product lifecycle. 

The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 are available for pre-order from 26 July and will be on-sale from 11 August. All products will be available to purchase via and select partners.
