The fold in the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 may become less visible. The display would fold into a water drop shape, making it almost completely flat when unfolded.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a beautiful smartphone, but it has one major drawback. When you open the device, the fold in the large display is clearly visible and tangible. With its successor, which will be released next summer, Samsung wants to tackle that problem. According to the Korean website Naver the Galaxy Z Fold 5 gets a much more subtle crease in the screen.

Samsung uses a so-called water drop construction for this. The two halves of the screen do not lie on top of each other when closed, but make a bend in the middle. As a result, there is less pressure on the fold and you don’t see it as well when unfolded. An additional advantage is that the screen is much more durable.

The patent for this water drop mechanism

Remarkably, Samsung has had a patent on this construction since 2016. Motorola uses it in its Razr 2022 and other brands have also opted for the water drop before. Samsung itself may have waived it because a smartphone with this mechanism is difficult to make water resistant. That problem should have been resolved by now.

Also better camera, built-in S Pen?

The more subtle fold in the screen will not be the only innovation of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. The device is rumored to also have the 108-megapixel main camera of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and a new telephoto lens with a resolution of 64 megapixels. In addition, the smartphone may have a built-in S Pen, which you can use to make (notes) on the screen. We also know that from the S22 Ultra.

The Z Fold 5 would be slightly heavier due to these additions: about 275 grams. Its predecessor weighs 263 grams.
