As we get closer to the launch of the Galaxy Z Flip 5, details have started to surface more regularly. In February, we learned that the display on the deck will be much larger than the one found on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Now, rumors seem to suggest that the new foldable will be the first of its kind with of the discreet deck screens.
According to the renders shared in a recent video by SuperRoader, the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s dual-deck displays will greatly set the foldable apart from the rest of its ilk. The two screens are very different in size, and seem to serve two different functions.
The smaller screen that’s in line with the Flip 5’s two cameras (which have been flipped 90 degrees compared to the Flip 4) seems to function as a notification center of sorts. In the renders, the small screen has the time, date, phone battery life, and a handful of AR emojis on screen to free up space on the larger screen.
While it’s only used to display photo backgrounds in the leaked renders, the large screen will likely be used as a way to interact with the phone as normal without needing to fully unfold it. Because essential information seems to be relegated to the smaller screen, the larger front page screen will have plenty of room for extra things like completing other tasks, as well as additional widgets. This news also comes as leaker Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s cover display will be 3.4-inches and will “take up most of the area” of the front of the phone.
With the drastic increase in size compared to the Z Flip 4, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 may feel completely different to use, as you won’t be as limited in the same way as its predecessor with its smaller cover screen. In fact, it almost feels like the Flip 4’s cover screen features could be translated to the smaller cover screen on the Flip 5, making the upcoming foldable a notable step up in terms of functionality.
If the leaked information is true, then the Galaxy Z Flip 5 looks like it could be shaping up to be one of the most impressive foldable devices to hit the market in 2023. Hopefully, it’s able to hit the landing when the information is officially confirmed.
