Better design

Smaller S Pen - without being able to store the S pen within the device can be a hassle. The Fold5 series introduces new cases that store a slimmer S Pen, giving you access to better productivity on-the-go.


Coupled with One UI 5 and a whole range of accessories, the Galaxy Z series is better at reflecting your personal style. A bigger outer screen also allows you to choose what gets displayed.

Creation and productivity

The Galaxy Z Flip5 is a creator’s dream phone. It is ultra portable, it has a big reflective screen to see what you’re capturing, it can stand without a tripod and it takes awesome quality photos and videos.

Screen and display
