The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, thin, but powerful
As you don’t change a winning team, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 takes up the very beautiful and well thought out design of its predecessor. We therefore end up with a luxurious smartphone, neat and above all more pleasant to handle.
Indeed, the integration of a new teardrop-shaped hinge allows the Galaxy Z Fold 5 to fold completely. It thus gains in finesse, now 13.4 mm thick and weighing 253 grams. Suffice to say that it slips very easily into a pocket, jacket or even pants.Galaxy Z Fold 5. // Source: CssTricks – Brice Zerouk

Another notable metamorphosis: its external screen. This has grown to 3.4 inches diagonally. From now on, the user can navigate between his applications and his widgets as on a classic screen without having to open the phone. Contactless payment, video, Google Maps, weather… Everything is accessible from the external screen.
