The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 stands out as a unique and fun phone to use. The improved flex hinge without a noticeable gap adds to its sleek appearance and practicality. It will be available in Bangladesh in the colors Graphite and Mint.
The cover screen, 278% larger than its predecessor, allows for more customization, making it an expressive tool rather than just a quick access panel.
The Z Flip 5 also provides an impressive foldable software experience, allowing users to decide which apps they want to access on the cover screen, adding a level of mindfulness to smartphone usage.
The option to allow only essential apps and keep distractions at bay is a game-changer for productivity and focus.
Under the hood, it is powered by 8GB LPDDR5x RAM, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor and 3700mAh battery.
One of the most attractive features of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is its revolutionary approach to taking selfies.
With this phone, users no longer need to rely on a selfie stick; they can simply place the smartphone on a table or desk and effortlessly capture a selfie as the real-time preview is displayed on the screen.
This unique functionality enhances the user experience and makes taking selfies more convenient than ever before.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, a part of the Foldable series, is a device built to elevate your lifestyle. Boasting a solid design with Armor Aluminum and Gorilla Glass Victus 2, the phone is not only durable but also IPX8 water-resistant, a rarity among foldable devices.

The Fold 5 comes in a new attractive color in Bangladesh: Icy Blue.
The device's battery life, powered by 12GB LPDDR5x RAM with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, is expected to be more efficient. The battery capacity is 4400 mAh, and it supports 25 Watt fast charging.
One impressive feature is the S Pen support, offering additional versatility for professionals.
In addition, users can experience a PC-like setup on a large screen with Samsung DeX Mode. This allows them to embrace a laptop-free lifestyle by turning any smart screen into a powerful monitor anywhere and anytime.
Connecting a mouse and keyboard can significantly increase productivity. Users can work on documents, browse the web, and handle emails more efficiently.
The Fold 5 also provides a seamless foldable software experience, which includes compatibility with Good Notes, new drag-and-drop features, and flex mode for quick controls.
In essence, this device can be considered a 3-in-1 device, as it serves the purposes of a mobile phone, a tablet, and a laptop that fits into any pocket or purse.
In conclusion, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 are innovative devices that cater to different user segments.
The Fold 5 offers impressive build quality, S Pen support, and a seamless foldable software experience.
