It might still be too early for Galaxy Z Fold 5 leaks, but that’s the world we live in. According to the Vietnamese publication The Pixel, Samsung is going to introduce its 2023’s foldable with some significant changes. The device could include an entirely new processor based on the 4nm process and even come with a built-in S-Pen slot, just like the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The publication, citing sources, claims that the test version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 runs a new processor, named Qualcomm Snapdragon 985 5G. It is based on a 4nm process node. This is the first time we are hearing about this chipset and it has not yet been officially announced by the semiconductor manufacturer.
The Pixel’s report contradicts a previous ET News report, which revealed the Z Fold 5 would be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. More information is needed before any conclusions can be drawn.
Further, it has been reported that the smartphone will be slightly thicker (6.5mm instead of 6.3mm) and weigh a little more than its predecessor. The device will also come equipped with an S-Pen slot, which is probably the reason behind the increase in weight and thickness.
Previously, it was revealed that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a triple camera unit featuring a 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN3 camera and a 12-megapixel front-facing camera. Other details about the smartphone are yet to be known.
Just like every year, Samsung may unveil the new foldable at the Galaxy Unpacked event in August. We should be learning more information about the device in the coming days. Also, the Korean company just (accidentally) confirmed the launch date of the Galaxy S23 series. Check it out!
