Samsung, the tech giant, is planning big things for the future. While everyone is happy with their decision, some disappointments come with the news. iPhones are still one of the best-selling smartphones, but if you want to try Galaxy on your iPhone, you can head to to check it out. With this, Samsung is giving users an experience of the One UI 5.1.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

It remains to be seen whether it will be a real breakthrough, but the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is on top of Samsung’s product portfolio. Even though the device doesn’t bring all the cutting-edge features, since it only features on the Samsung Ultra’s, the Galaxy Z Fold lineup is one of the most expensive smartphones they have been offering. Samsung will launch the Z Fold 5 with their next event, which is expected to be held in July.

Most of us think that if Galaxy Z Fold Series is the most expensive, that means this device has been developed with Samsung’s resources to build the device better than ever. However, it isn’t true. @OnLeaks x @SmartPrix shared the CAD 5K Render for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. This is based on official CAD schematics, which Samsung shared with case makers to design cases ahead of the launch.

With the CAD Render, it will be identical to its predecessor. Check the front, camera module, punch-hole, and fingerprint placement; everything looks familiar to the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Fold 5 look identical. The only difference this time will be the thickness between the two hinges. When you fold the device, there is no gap between the display when folded. The thickness is significantly reduced with the new hinge design. Also, the crease between the display is no longer visible.

The LED flash module of the device is now moved to the side of the camera module instead of the bottom. Also, note that the side bezels of the device will also get reduced compared to the last generation of the device. At this time, there is nothing else. Let’s conclude this. The new Z Fold will have a new hinge mechanism which eliminates some of the drawbacks of the Z Fold lineup, no crease, and everything including screen size, camera specifications, and battery. The foldable smartphone market is getting better and better with the launch of Vivo X Fold 2 and Oppo Find X Flip. Samsung really needs to make this better than everyone before Apple comes out with their foldable device.

The company is also working on One UI 5.1.1, which will have special elements and optimizations for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip. Apart from this, the improved waterdrop plate hinge mechanism and the under-display camera are also going to be improved. Lastly, the Galaxy Fold 5, despite having the same camera sensor and module, has an improved ISP, so you can expect better video and photo performance.

Samsung Galaxy S24 Series

It’s worth saying that this year, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Series was well-received by users, which we can see in their sales. Thanks to their decision to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC globally instead of a two-way split between Exynos and Snapdragon. We all know that Samsung’s Exynos SoCs aren’t good at all, but recently we’ve heard a lot of rumors that Samsung wants to bring back the Exynos SoC to the Galaxy S24 Series.

People on the internet don’t like this decision. This is because if you are paying more than Rs 1 lakh for a phone, you want the best of the best. You can still expect the device to feature a Qualcomm SoC instead of Exynos on the higher variant. Korean publications have reported that they may or may not bring the Exynos SoC because Samsung is aware of the heating issue with their SoCs. The VP of Samsung confirmed LS1 Division during Q1 Earnings, mentioning “We are pushing for the return of Exynos to the flagship of the Galaxy Series.”

Yes, Exynos is coming back to the flagship Galaxy S24 Series, which means Europe and some parts of Asia will have Exynos 2400 while the US and Canada will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. Samsung has already started mass-producing this chip, which will be used in the Galaxy S24 Series. They are doing this because of their purchasing power. If Samsung brings back the dual SoC variant of the device, they can negotiate with Qualcomm to reduce the price, but they can’t do it any longer.

This device also has massive improvements in the camera with software enhancements while keeping the same camera module. As for hardware performance, Samsung is planning to drop the 3x lens with a continuous zoom that can go optically from 3x all the way to 10x. This camera upgrade is expected to be massive. Again, we are almost a year away from the Galaxy S24 Series.

Additionally, Samsung may bring back the variable aperture with F1.2 to F4.0. With this, you can get amazing nighttime shots. The recently launched Xiaomi 13 Ultra also has a variable aperture F1.0 to F4.0, so it’s entirely possible that Samsung will bring this to their device.

As reported by Business Korea, this gives Qualcomm an upper hand in price negotiation, which results in costing Samsung 77% more than last year, which is huge. This reduces Samsung’s profit margin and is the biggest reason why they want to bring the Exynos SoC. If we are paying them a lot, we don’t care about their profit margin; just give us the best performance like a premium offering that can beat the competition. We don’t want a smartphone that lags a year behind in performance and has bad battery life.

Exynos 2400

Samsung has made a nearly-perfect smartphone by adopting the Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC for all regions, making everyone happy. However, they are trying hard to bring the Exynos SoC. The Galaxy Dream Team is working on this effort and they have possibly achieved some groundbreaking. Recently, rumors suggested that they are going to sign a multi-year RDNA SoC with AMD to bring the best GPU. They even hired a former GPU development expert at Qualcomm, all for the Exynos SoC. They may bring the Exynos 2400 SoC exclusively to the Samsung Galaxy S24 Series in selective markets.

This SoC has appeared on Geekbench, and the performance allegedly outperforms Apple’s A16 Bionic. This is a massive jump if we compare it to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 on Galaxy S23 Ultra and the latest A16 Bionic from Apple. Exynos 2400 will outperform the multi-core performance because of the deca-core, which means 10 CPU cores compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon’s 8 CPU cores. After saving some money, they could push more RAM, like a base 12GB of RAM and 256GB of base storage, which has been reported in the past.

Upfront, as for the GPU, Samsung is using 4x compute units. This suggests it will perform 4x better in graphic performance. Samsung recently renewed their deal with AMD, which uses Samsung’s improved 4nm LPP Production for better performance. This will perform better, at least on paper, and there is no guarantee it will live up to expectations. We are not giving any or expecting any high expectations from Samsung regarding this.

Exynos has a bad track record over the years. The company is already planning to proceed with making a dedicated processor for the Galaxy Phone, which can be used in Galaxy S25 series in 2025. Samsung is also trying to avoid heating issues for the Galaxy S24 Exynos 2400 SoC. Let’s see what’s coming. Stay tuned, we will cover everything about Samsung rumors every Sunday.

On the other hand, Samsung has also signed a multi-year agreement with Qualcomm, which could have a much faster GPU than iPhone 15. Already, Qualcomm is beating the iPhone 14 Series, and it could also be possible that they can do that again with the iPhone 15 Series. Exynos always disappoints the customers, and why Samsung is doing this is to save money because they have to pay more to Qualcomm for their exclusive Galaxy SoC. Qualcomm SoC will at least remain on the device until 2 years, until Exynos is able to take over and can compete with Qualcomm’s flagship, which is around 2025. It means 8 Gen 1 will hopefully come to Galaxy S24 Series, despite how good it is, instead of the Exynos 2400 utilized by other brands like Google with their Tensor SoC.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Always on Display is one of the things which Apple is being praised for, enabling AOD on Apple iPhone 14 Series, which Android has had for years on OLED display panel smartphones. As for Apple, they choose to dim the brightness low instead of blacking out the screen with clock and the widgets. Some users don’t like this Apple move because it doesn’t seem the device’s screen is actually turned off or for some other reasons. Despite this, Apple has rolled out the Android-like AOD later with the update.

This was actually a pretty good implementation of Always-on-display on iPhone 14. Samsung is now looking to get inspired by Apple and will have Apple’s like Always-on Display design on Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5. Take it as skepticism because it won’t be that often Samsung does things which Apple does, and it doesn’t look good for Samsung to copy this feature just a year later. Worth noting that it does consume a lot of battery than a regular AOD.

As we all know, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 comes with a smaller battery pack, and enabling this feature on the device will give less battery time to the device. The company will give users multiple options for AOD to switch between various AOD modes. Even if Samsung goes to implement this, it won’t be a big deal since Samsung will have more options unlike Apple.

As for the design of the device, it may get a Windows Folder-Shaped design cover design on the front. Samsung is working on software for this new design.

Samsung Watch 6

Company is officially bringing back the rotating bezels on the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. Last year, they removed the rotating bezels from the watch. With the Galaxy Watch 6 Pro, users will get a physical rotating bezel with classic branding. However, the regular Galaxy Watch 6 will have a curved glass design similar to the Watch Active 2. These were some of the fan-favorite features. We don’t have to mention that Apple watches are the best-looking smartwatches thanks to their curved display panels and super-thin bezels. With the Galaxy Watch 6, there will be fewer bezels and a curved display.

Samsung will also improve the resolution and increase the screen size to 1.47″. There will be massive improvements in the battery life of the device by packing a bigger battery and better optimization.

Samsung is also scheduled to launch the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Z Fold 5, Tab S9 Lineup, and the Galaxy Watch 6 at the unpack event. Samsung may announce their devices at the unpack event before August, as it was reported it could take place in the final week of July. Probably July 25 to July 27 in South Korea instead of the United States because the company is looking to strengthen the South Korean government’s bid to hold World Expo 2030.
