Samsung would seek to add protection against dust to its future Galaxy, the Z Fold 5 and the Z Flip 5. This would involve improving the solidity of the foldable screen. And, according to rumors, the South Korean manufacturer could use a teardrop-shaped hinge for these two new foldable smartphones.
Samsung would like its foldables to fold without a gap between each panel, like at Oppo The Galaxy Z Flip 5 should have a much larger external screen The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 are expected for the end of year 2023
Among foldable smartphone makers, Samsung is one of the big names that has yet to use a new teardrop-shaped hinge. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 released last August have a more pronounced screen crease than the more recent Oppo Find N2 (test) and Find N2 Flip (test).
Samsung also plans to improve the technical characteristics of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5. This, in order to make them thinner and lighter. The manufacturer wants the screens of these smartphones to be completely flat when folded. These improvements would make these foldables more resistant to dust and particles.

Dust protection on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
According to the leaker @chunvn8888 this new hinge could allow Samsung to make its foldable smartphones more resistant to dust. The manufacturer would even consider having its next models certified. But according to him, Samsung would not have the waterproof certification in time for the marketing of the Z Fold 5.
And since the data sheets of the Fold and Flip ranges look more and more similar, we can assume that if the Z Fold 5 is really certified for dust resistance, the Z Flip 5 will be too.
Moreover, the flip smartphone is also expected to come with a much larger external display. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 are expected for the end of year 2023
