The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the latest foldable phone from Samsung, and it's set to be released on August 11, 2023. The phone is rumored to have a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. It will also have a 6.7-inch AMOLED display on the outside and a 7.6-inch AMOLED display on the inside. The camera lineup is expected to remain the same as last year's model, with a 50MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 10MP telephoto camera.

One of the biggest changes to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is the upgraded hinge. The new hinge is said to be stronger and more durable, and it will also allow the phone to close completely flat. This will make the foldable feel thinner and more pocket-friendly.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 looks like a promising device. It has a powerful processor, a large and versatile display, and a durable hinge. If you're looking for a high-end foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is a great option.

@Robin621k Do you use a Fold 5? 

The keyboard is very usable on the front (outer) screen. I have had the Fold 3, 4, and now Fold 5. 

I agree that some people don't find the front screen as usable as they would like but there are a lot of us who disagree and have no issue with the width of the front screen. The width difference between the folded Fold 5 and S23 Ultra is 11 mm (0.4 inches). 

I really doubt that the Fold 6 screen is going to be wider.

I recently purchased the Z Fold 5 and am loving everything about it. That said, I have always been big on tech research and figuring out what I'm missing out on lol. I've owned a Pixel in the past and my biggest issue with it was the lack of customization compared to Samsung. With Galaxy, it seems like anything and everything I want to accomplish, there's a way to do it - even if that means diving deep into settings to third party apps.

So my question is: Based on software and hardware (not build quality or physical design, because both models coming out soon sound like they're changing), would you guys go for Pixel Fold or Z Fold and why?

To add more info, I love the customization on Samsung, and based on reviews, it seems that the build quality is better than Pixel at the moment. On the other hand, I along with most others am tired of the bloatware and honestly I almost exclusively use the Google apps anyway (besides Samsung Notes)

I'm not a person who harps just blindly, but the user experience with z fold 5, I'm a believer that fold is the future. Im a note/sultra convert. I couldn't let go of my stylus 😞, that's why I skipped z fold earlier. But fold 5 was a leap I gambled on and can honestly say, I'm glad I did. 
My work flow definitely better, I didn't even have to use my laptop, love it. I no longer am concerned when I travel, since I can use my fold for just about anything and everything.

I believe that the updates for the Z Fold 5, that give us AI features are absolutely amazing. I know many who are using them immediately and really appreciate that it was offered.

Thank you

I am amazed how Samsung doing the trade in devices on their website. 
They're offering more money for the S23 Ultra 5G over the Z Fold 5.
And when it comes to sales the Z Fold 5 goes for $1800 and the S22 Ultra around $1300, that's a messed up deal.
Samsung trying to tell us the Fold not worth the money.
