Galaxy Z Fold 5 uses water drop hinge; crease looks similar like Fold 4

Published

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is undoubtedly the greatest foldable smartphone to be introduced in 2022 because of its excellent build quality, cameras, software, and battery life. Even so, there is always an opportunity for improvement. With the Galaxy Z Fold 5, the business has addressed a design issue that might set it apart from the previously introduced folding phones from Chinese manufacturers.

It was said that the hinge design in Galaxy Z Fold 5 appears to be a significant change, which may get rid of the noticeable wrinkle you get on the inside display. The Water Drop hinge design was a revolution in the Galaxy Z Fold 5, making it the most anticipated and desirable upcoming foldable model. The water drop hinge has the part of the hinge that is folded take shape like a water drop instead of a “U,” and this looser and thinner form of hinge lessens the crease that happens while the screen completely gets folded.

Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 will have Android 13-based One UI 5.1.1

Galaxy Z Fold 4 had a hinge that was 15.8 mm thick; the expectation of everyone is that Fold 5 will be a salvation to this crease issue. But it seems it does not make Fold 5 more wrinkly based on the information from a reliable source Ice Universe. From that, it is evident that the Galaxy Z Fold 5’s crease is only 15% less than Fold 4, and Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a 13.4 mm thick hinge.

But by considering only this feature, we cannot declare this as a disappointment; not every person focuses on crease reduction and hinge features but also on the style and design of the model. This thing has made clear that crease reduction in foldable devices is quite a difficult task to bring upon. And the users will have to think about it who thought of crease reduction as a valuable one in Fold 5’s purchase.
