- The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is likely to adopt a new display technology
- The device has already been tipped to feature the S-Pen stylus
- However, none of the reports are presently substantiated by the company
Samsung is expected to launch a new generation of its flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, later this year. The smartphone is expected to offer new technologies as part of its offering, after the jump between the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Fold 4 was mostly an incremental one. After a previous report suggested that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 foldable smartphone could feature a holder for the S-Pen stylus and an as-yet unreleased smartphone chip, a new report on the purported smartphone claims that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will come with a foldable display that does not crease down the middle, as well as an upgrade to its primary camera.

As per the new claims, Samsung is expected to adopt a new hinge format in order for the folding display panel to avoid creases. To be sure, this is not an entirely novel piece of technology — initial patents of folding phones from around five years ago, as well as devices launched by the likes of OPPO, have already showcased designs where the display of a foldable phone does not end up with a crease down its spine.
Samsung will seemingly do this with a hinge layout that could see the folding display get pushed inward into the chassis of the phone, in order to create a waterdrop-like shape for the display, when folded. Samsung is reportedly set to call it a ‘dumbbell hinge’, and the new layout will premiere with the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
Another new update to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 could be the main camera, which accommodates a 108MP sensor for its primary camera — up from the 50MP main camera on the Z Fold 4. Users have often cited a lacklustre camera experience on foldable phones, and the new update may fix that.
