The South Korean tech giant has surely kept its promise by making the Galaxy Z Fold 5 the best-ever foldable released till now. And the features specify that all the waiting will be worth it. With well-equipped software, we now have our hands on the constructed hardware, which contains the secret component that the firm uses to protect the foldable from an accidental fall. The problem with using an expensive foldable always lies in the way it is handled. A well-known gadget reviewer, Jerry Rig Everything, has clearly studied the model’s hardware on his YouTube channel.
The reviewer starts by removing the plastic bumper around the Flexscreen, which was fitted quite hard. After that, he sliced the display of the gadget, scratching the four corners. Under the display sheet, the YouTuber showcases the metal frame developed by Samsung with a thin layer of foam. Behind the screen’s display lies a gold sheet with vertical lines, which can be considered the shock dispersion layer, but it is not. The firm employed its hidden lifesaver element, the shock dispersion layer, which gives the look of a thick fiber sheet.
In other words, it can be said to be a layer of shock absorption. The idea is that by adding this new layer, the foldable displays will be more resistant, especially when they accidentally fall to the ground. Additionally, he analyzed Samsung’s pull-tab battery and NFC’s coils by slicing the back panel of the Fold 5. The model weighs around 253 grams with a 6.2-inch exterior screen with HD+ Dynamic AMOLED 2x and an interior screen measuring 7.6-inch QXGA+ Infinity Flex Dynamic AMOLED 2x, both with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The camera system for the rear includes a 50 MP primary sensor with OIS, a 12 MP ultra-wide angle, and a 10 MP telephoto lens with OIS and 3x optical zoom. Selfie camera with 4 MP for the internal screen and 10 MP for the external selfie camera. Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 6E, NFC, GPS, triple SIM, and USB Type-C 3.2 connectivity features are included. 4,400 mAh battery that supports 15W fast wireless charging, 25W fast wired charging, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
