Samsung reportedly employed a hinge in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 that resembles a waterdrop, according to a claim from the Korean magazine Naver. It implies that the next flagship foldable smartphone from the South Korean company would be able to fold entirely flat, leaving no space between the two parts of the phone when it is folded. The inside screen of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will also feature a smoother, less obvious fold. Fans of the Galaxy Z Fold have been requesting this for at least a few years.

Samsung, on the other hand, will not exclude the IPX8 designation for water resistance, in contrast to other Chinese smartphone manufacturers. With its flawlessly flat folding form and water resistance, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be almost ideal in terms of both experience and design. Only the absence of dust resistance prevents it from being perfect. The news is corroborated by famous leaker Ice Universe as well.

Samsung reportedly patented this innovative hinge design in 2016 and is referring to it as the “dumbbell” in the article. For unclear reasons, it didn’t deliver the design however. It is said that the screen’s toughness has increased as a result of the new dumbbell-shaped hinge, and it will be able to survive more folding and unfolding operations throughout the course of its lifespan.
