The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 could make the cover much more useful


According to an experienced display industry analyst, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 may come with a much larger cover.

According to Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), the next-generation flip phone will have a display bezel of about 3.0 inches. This will allow users to do much more without having to open the phone to reveal the 6.7-inch screen.

Current Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a 1.9-inch display next to the camera lens and is really only useful for notifications, shortcuts, and accessing media controls and quick settings. It also works as a camera viewfinder for photos taken with the rear cameras. It’s certainly convenient, but it could definitely be more useful.

We’d like to have access to fuller versions of apps like Spotify beyond just skipping tracks and pausing music, just like you can with Moto Razr series of flip phones is the main rival of the Z Flip series. The 3-inch display is also great for viewing YouTube videos or photos you’ve received in text messages, for example.

Young has been a reliable source of information in recent years, often providing information on display technologies, sizes and refresh rates for upcoming phones and tablets. So, while we are being cautious, there is also a good chance that this feature will be implemented.

The display expert also predicts that Samsung will debut a different hinge design in the Z Flip 5, which he says will reduce the visibility of the hinges. This would be another welcome change.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 has already become our favorite small phone, along with Samsung foldable now feel less niche and more approachable. We gave the phone four stars for its improved battery life, smart camera tricks, and various customization options.

We would have liked longer battery life and more upgrades over the Galaxy Z Flip 3, as well as a more useful display cover. It looks like the next generation will take care of the latter.
