Galaxy Z Fold5: The ultimate productivity powerhouse with a large screen

Galaxy Z Fold5 retains their offering for the best foldable experience with an immersive, large screen and a long-lasting battery in the thinnest, lightest Fold yet while delivering the most powerful performance in the Galaxy Z series.

The Galaxy Z Fold is well-known for everyday productivity thanks to its robust, big screen experience, evolving from Multi Window and App Continuity to a wide range of features including Taskbar, drag and drop, and optimization of third-party apps. S Pen Fold Edition introduced in the third generation Fold in 2021, has also been fine-tuned to deliver a superior writing experience on Galaxy Z Fold5. These features and tools come together to deliver powerful productivity on a large screen and enable users to complete important tasks from anywhere. 

The improved Taskbar enables dynamic productivity by allowing users to quickly switch between frequently used apps. The Fold5 now is capable to open up to four recent apps for more efficient working. Newly enhanced two-handeddrag and drop can also ramp up productivity when moving content between apps and screens. Simply touch and hold an image in Samsung Gallery with one finger and use another finger to open the Samsung Notes app to drag-and-drop the image. With hidden pop-up, an app can continue running in the background, allowing users to watch video content in full screen and chat with friends in a floating pop-up on the side of the screen. 

Slim S Pen Case

The new slimmer and more compact S Pen Fold Edition makes real-time annotating and ideation easy while being able to fit more comfortably in the pocket. The Slim S Pen Case is nearly the same thickness as a regular case for the Fold and available in a variety of styles and colors so users can carry their S Pens in style.

This year, Fold5’s 7.6-inch Main Screen provides expansive and uninterrupted viewing so users can enjoy their favorite movie in portrait or landscape. Samsung has bumped up the Main Screen’s peak brightness by more than 30%, up to 1750 nits, for an optimal viewing experience outdoors even under bright sunlight.

For those who wants an immersive mobile gaming experience on the largest Galaxy smartphone screen, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy enhances graphics and uses AI to enable dynamic gaming and multi-game functionality. The Galaxy Z Fold5 also can sustain long gaming sessions with its advanced cooling system that dissipates heat more intelligently for less lag and no drop in performance.

Delivering a positive impact for the planet
