From the information released so far, the Galaxy Z Fold5 will hit the market with only minor updates compared to the previous model.
According to a new rumor, Samsung employees themselves have expressed their disappointment with the model, stating that it should not even be called “Galaxy Z Fold 4s”.
Samsung employees show discontent and disappointment with new foldable
As far as I know, the boring design of the Galaxy Z Fold5 has caused some complaints from Samsung employees.

Next July, Samsung will hold its second Unpacked event of this year. This occasion serves to present and globally launch the new generation of Watch 6 smartwatches, the Tab S9 family of tablets, the Galaxy Buds 3 earphones and, of course, the new families of folding smartphones Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 .
About this last model, the available information suggests that the foldable will arrive with too many similarities with its predecessor. Something that will surely disappoint fans, just as it has disappointed Samsung’s own employees.
According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung employees who already know the Galaxy Z Fold5 were quite disappointed with the smartphone, even going so far as to say that it should not even be called Galaxy Z Fold 4s.
The reasons for the disappointment are related to the few changes that the model will undergo. According to the information released so far, the design will remain, which means that the Fold5 can have a 6.2-inch external screen, like the previous model.
Worse: some sources advance that the new Fold will have the same camera and battery specifications as its predecessor.
It is recalled that the Galaxy Z Fold4 has a 4,400 mAh battery and a triple rear camera configuration with a 50 megapixel primary sensor, a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle and a 10 megapixel telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom .
New hinge mechanism may disappoint
But the leaker Ice Universe goes even further and claims that the new hinge mechanism in the form of a drop of water also falls short of expectations. All because it still cannot hide the crease on the screen as intended.
According to the information disclosed, it has reduced the mark by about 15% compared to previous models, but it still cannot come close to the crease concealment achieved by Huawei, Xiaomi and OPPO.
But there is also good news. The Galaxy Z Fold5 arrives equipped with the Snpadragon 8 Gen 2 processor customized for Samsung and with a new updated sensor. Even though it maintains the same resolution as the previous model, it can deliver improved results.
