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.

Samsung looks at the Galaxy as the flagship devices and the Fold and Flip are not. They cost what they because they are specialized (folding screens)

@ExitN9ner Both the Samsung S series and Z series are considered flagship devices by Samsung.

I do understand, but to charge almost double for a device has way fewer features from the other premium device.
I don't blame Samsung, I would blame the people who are paying Samsung.
If Samsung adds the S-pen as the other ultra has and fixing the camera, the Z Fold would be a fantastic phone.

I'm sure if i praised this phone my post would be promoted. I posted my screen issue and it was removed citing it's easier for US to di d answers here when problems are posted in duplicate. These duplicate posts let me know that many users are having the same issues a d the solutions have not been satisfactory.

I shouldn't be having screen issues with a brand new $2,000 phone. A phone should take be $2,000 and not work beautifully. 

The sheer number of settings that need my attention on a daily basis is overwhelming. I spend more time. Abysitting settings than actually getting productive use out of my phone. It's more expensive than a laptop, tablet or desktop pc and I've found it's just not worth it. I do like the larger screen but again those other devices naturally have a larger screen.

My lack of PERSONAL storage as opposed to cloud storage also dosatisfies me. It is not convenient for me to have my pictures and files split across all these brands fighting me to keep my information for me when all I want is to have it privately on my super expensive telephone. For the amount of money the phone cost the LEAST it could have is an SD slot for I CAN KEEP MY OWN INFO BECAUSE I DO T WANT ALL MY DEEPLY PERSONAL FILES ON CLOUDS NO MATTER HOW SECURE ANYONE FEELS THAT IS - NOTHING IS MORE SEXJRE THAN ONLY ME HAVING PHYSICAL CONTROl of my own information. This isn't convenient, it's INTRUSIVE. i LIKE my own info on my own droves at my own house!

And why does my post look like this? As expensive as this phone is, it CANT SCROLL PROPERLY AS I TYPE and the t0uch screen sticks. Overall this is a horrible experience not nearly worth the exhorberent cost of this device. 

I'm downgrading asap.
