Samsung has been a leading player in the foldable phone market, but the competition has been catching up rapidly. With the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Samsung aims to solidify its position and silence any doubts about its foldable legacy. This blog explores the impressive features, specifications, and expected price of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 in Nepal.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 Design and Build

After four years of innovation, Samsung has achieved a gapless hinge design on the Galaxy Z Fold 5, making it sleeker and lighter than its predecessor. The new “Flex Hinge” reduces the crease on the main display, improving the overall design aesthetics. The device retains the “Armor Aluminum” frame but now features Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 for enhanced drop resistance. The phone is also IPX8 water-resistant and has undergone rigorous testing for durability, capable of withstanding at least 200,000 folds. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 comes in “Icy Blue,” “Cream,” and “Phantom Black” color options, each featuring a matte finish at the back and glossy side rails.

The main display also boasts a peak brightness of 1,750 nits, providing an excellent viewing experience even in bright conditions. The device is S Pen compatible, although the stylus is not housed within the phone. Instead, Samsung offers a slim S Pen case that complements the slimmer and lighter design.

The main and telephoto cameras offer optical image stabilization for steady photography and videos. The cover display houses a dedicated 10MP front-facing camera, while a 4MP unit is tucked beneath the main display for selfies.
