Samsung has opened up about their next generation of foldables after launching the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 recently. The firm even released the clip, claiming the durability test of both foldables and revealing the features it holds. The foldable smartphones underwent a water resistance test under IPX8 and IPX4 and seemed to have successfully functioned as usual. But there is a feature that troubles the foldables in terms of resistance: the dust-resistant feature. As of now, no Samsung leaflets have the ability to be dustproof.
It is a crucial feature for foldable smartphones, as dust particles can penetrate the mobile when it is folded. An intriguing possibility that might pave the way for the widespread adoption of foldables is a dust-resistant folding phone. For the foldables with moving elements, it will be significant if they feature water and dust resistance. But it seems Samsung will come up with a solution for this long-threatening issue in their future foldable lineups.
The head of Samsung’s mobile division, TM Roh, has discussed the leaflet’s lack of dust resistance. The firm doesn’t reveal more about it or the foldable with which the dust-resistant feature will be debuted. This is also one of the reasons that some people hesitate to purchase foldable mobiles. By introducing the dust-resistant foldable, Samsung may evolve as a leading brand in foldable manufacturing.
The IPX8 certification was given to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5 as the models cleared the conditions of being immersed in water for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 1.5 meters. The fifth generation of foldables also has an IPX4 rating, which can withstand water splashes coming from any angle.
