Galaxy Z Flip5: The Ultimate Tool for Self-Expression
The Galaxy Z Flip5 is the perfect accessory to capture how Galaxy users look and feel — complete with an innovative design and a variety of all-new customizable features. The most apparent change was the exterior design. Flex Window, the largest Cover Screen on a Galaxy Z Flip yet, takes the camera experience of a foldable phone to the next level. The audience took note of a video with American actress Sydney Sweeney showcasing how users can easily snap selfies or group photos at any angle, all thanks to the upgraded Flex Window.
Compact by Design: Customize Your Galaxy Z Flip5 Experience
The Galaxy Z Flip5 delivers more usability through its wider Cover Screen, all in a compact form that still fits in a pocket. What’s more, users can put their personalities on display thanks to even more ways to customize their Flex Windows. Widgets allow Galaxy users to check the weather and stock market information at a glance or control media playback without ever opening their smartphones.
Crafting the Future: Foldable Hinge Technology Redefined
Building on a legacy of innovative design and craftsmanship, the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 are lighter, more compact and more durable than ever before. The all-new Flex Hinge can be adjusted with extreme precision, reducing the Fold’s gap to almost nothing while still ensuring the strength and durability to support Flex Mode. This flexible form factor will pave the way for the next phase in the evolution of foldables.
Galaxy Z Fold5: The Ultimate Productivity Powerhouse
The new Galaxy Z Fold5 is a productivity power player and a multitasking secret weapon, complete with the largest screen out of the entire Galaxy Z series to date. In today’s world, the boundaries between work and personal life are blurred, and consumers need a flexible device that supports both work and play. Providing PC-like power in users’ pockets, the Galaxy Z Fold5 ensures that users can enjoy the ultimate mobile experience anytime, anywhere.
At this year’s Unpacked event, global icon SUGA from BTS made a surprise appearance to demonstrate how the unique foldable experience of the Galaxy Z Fold5 could be used to optimize users’ daily lives.
Galaxy Watch6 Series: Build Healthy Habits, Day and Night
Samsung introduced the Galaxy Watch6 series to help users not only track but also personalize and enhance their sleep.

Galaxy Tab S9 Series: Bridge the Gap From Inspiration to Creation

Samsung’s Journey Towards a Sustainable Future
