Samsung is by far the industry’s leader in offering foldable smartphones, having offered the Galaxy Z Fold3 and 4 smartphones the past few years. Recently, Google unveiled its Pixel Fold to compete with Samsung. Having unveiled a unique flip smartphone called the Galaxy Z Flip5 over a month ago, Samsung has now unveiled the latest Z Fold series smartphone in its Galaxy Z Fold5.
The electronics teardown site iFixit recently conducted a teardown of Samsung’s new smartphone. The reviewer was able to easily open the smartphone and access the batteries, which is a plus as that part is likely to require servicing. Several tabs do have to be removed.
Samsung’s latest foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold5.
The reviewer noted that unlike Google’s Pixel Fold, Samsung’s Z Fold5 uses gearless hinges. But one problem was dust getting into the smartphone, particularly through the hinge mechanism. The other issue was a somewhat fragile smartphone display which required some care to remove.
