Samsung has officially finished taking the wraps off its flagship, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, but for better or for worse, it seems the Korean giant has done little when it comes to changing the handset's design. Sure, the Z Fold 5 now clicks properly like a book, with no visible gap present, but the inner screen, where most users will multitask, still has a fold and a prominent one.
The fold continues to be visible, regardless of whether the Galaxy Z Fold 5 screen is turned on or off
Samsung likely gave the press and other media personnel commercial units of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 to try and see what they found different. Alvin, a Twitter user, shared images of the smartphone's internal display, with the first image showing the panel off, and although he claims he didn't have time to clean the display, a crease is visible from the bottom, to almost top of the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It looks like Samsung has hit a roadblock with this design, as it seems impossible for the company to eliminate the crease.
Alvin shares two more photos with the inner screen turned on, and the fold is still visible on the Galaxy Z Fold 5, although it's less prominent because the lighting hides most of that line. Even when viewed from a different angle, when the inner screen is turned on, the fold can still be seen, but a large part of it is hidden. It might have been easier for Samsung to eliminate the gap on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 when you close the foldable flagship, but it looks like an uphill battle when it comes to getting rid of the crease.
This could be a design flaw that prevents Apple from launching its own family of foldable products, although there have been many reports that the company is working on both an iPhone and an iPad version of these devices. After five generations, one would expect Samsung to make some progress in this particular area, but that could mean one of two things. Either the company is lazy with this approach, or the technology to eliminate the curl doesn't exist. What do you think? Share your views in the comments.
