Ah, dust! That minuscule little devil that seems to make its way into every nook and cranny of our lives. You’d think that something as small as dust wouldn’t be a big deal, right? Wrong! When it comes to our beloved smartphones, dust is like kryptonite to Superman – it can completely cripple your phone and leave you feeling powerless.

Picture this: you’re at the beach, soaking up some sun and scrolling through your Instagram feed, when all of a sudden, a gust of wind blows a cloud of sand in your direction. Your phone is now covered in a layer of fine, grainy sand that has infiltrated every crevice of your device. You try to wipe it off, but it’s no use – the sand is stubbornly stuck to your phone’s screen, buttons, and ports.

Waterdrop-shaped hinge could make the Galaxy Z Fold 5 dust resistant

Samsung plans to release the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 foldable phones with a waterdrop-shaped hinge, which could make them dust-resistant and improve the visibility of the foldable screen’s crease, as SamMobile has discovered. Samsung is reportedly trying to bring an IP67 rating to its next-generation foldable phones, making them the first foldable phones ever with dust resistance.

However, this feature may or may not be finalized. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 are expected to be released in August or September of 2023 and will feature similar-sized Super AMOLED foldable screens with a 120Hz refresh rate, and both will be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 will also come with an upgraded 12MP primary camera.

Released back in August 2022, the previous Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a premium foldable smartphone that boasts impressive specs. The device features a large 7.6-inch foldable Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of 1812 x 2176 pixels, which offers vivid and sharp visuals. The display folds inwards, allowing users to switch between a phone and tablet form factor.
