Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has once again pushed the boundaries of innovation by introducing its fifth generation of Galaxy foldables: Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. The highly anticipated launch event, held at Shamba Café in Nairobi, drew tech enthusiasts from across the East African region. But the excitement doesn’t stop there – Samsung also unveiled a tree-planting initiative in line with its global environment strategy. During the event, an estimated 10,000 trees were planted in the Ngong Hills area, making a significant contribution to sustainability.
Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5: Elevating the Foldable Experience
The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 offer unparalleled experiences for users, boasting sleek and compact designs, extensive customization options, and powerful performance. The new Flex Hinge technology makes the foldable experience possible, ensuring a solid and aesthetically balanced design. These remarkable foldable devices not only provide extraordinary camera capabilities like FlexCam but also redefine the potential of a smartphone – whether open or closed.
Samsung’s Commitment to Meeting Customer Needs
TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics, highlighted the company’s dedication to revolutionizing the mobile industry with foldables. More people are choosing Samsung’s foldables for the unique experience they offer, setting the standard and continually refining the foldable technology. With the launch of Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5, Samsung reaffirms its commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction.
Durability and Protection at the Forefront
Samsung ensured that both Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 meet durability expectations. The main screen is equipped with a shock dispersion layer and a redesigned back, providing a more solid display. With IPX8 support, Armor Aluminum frames, and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®2, applied to both the Flex Window and back cover, these foldables offer the protection consumers expect, further enhanced by the Flex Hinge with its dual rail structure, diffusing external impacts.
Galaxy Z Flip 5: A Pocketable Self-Expression Tool
The Galaxy Z Flip5 is the ultimate pocket-sized device designed for self-expression. The new Flex Window, now 3.78 times larger than the previous generation, offers a wide range of customization options, including informative and graphical clocks that can match a user’s Galaxy Watch6 series face design, adding a touch of style. The new Flipsuit Case provides device protection with a changeable NFC card, allowing users to match their Flex Window and case design for more personalization options.
Galaxy Z Flip 5: Unmatched Usability and Camera Experience
Even when closed, the Galaxy Z Flip5 offers greater usability than ever before. The Flex Window enables users to access useful information quickly and effortlessly. Widgets provide easy access to the weather, music playback, global stock market updates, and more. Users can browse call history, reply to texts using Quick Reply with a full QWERTY keyboard, and view chat history, all without opening the device.
The Galaxy Z Flip5 also boasts the most versatile camera experience on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone. The larger Flex Window enables high-quality selfies from the rear camera, and the FlexCam allows users to capture stunning hands-free photos from creative angles. The AI solution improvements in low light photography, digital 10X zoom, and Dual Preview add an extra layer of creativity to the camera experience.
Galaxy Z Fold 5: The Ultimate Productivity Powerhouse
The Galaxy Z Fold5, with its immersive large screen and long-lasting battery, delivers powerful performance and is the thinnest, lightest Fold to date. Enhanced features like Taskbar, two-handed drag and drop, and optimization of third-party apps, along with the improved S Pen Fold Edition, create a dynamic and productive experience. The large Main Screen provides expansive and uninterrupted viewing for an optimal movie-watching experience, even under bright sunlight.
Positive Impact for the Planet
Samsung remains committed to its environmental vision and net zero carbon emissions goal by the end of 2030 for the Device Experience Division. The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 feature a variety of recycled materials, making them more sustainable than their previous generations. The devices come with five years of security updates and four generations of OS upgrades, contributing to an extended product lifecycle.
