Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 may Launch Earlier than Expected: Rumors and Production Schedule

Samsung could be launching its new Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 foldables sooner than expected, according to recent rumors. The company is expected to begin mass production of hinges for the new foldables at the beginning of June, which is earlier than last year’s production schedule.

Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5 May Launch a Few Weeks Earlier

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 foldables in August 2022, and they went on sale later that month. This year, the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 is expected to happen around the same time in August 2023. However, there are rumors that suggest a possible July launch for the new foldables, a few weeks earlier than the 2022 models.

The rumor comes from a noted Twitter tipster @Tech_Reve, who suggests a July launch of the new foldables, possibly in the second half of July. The production schedule for foldable parts seems to be the basis for this rumor.

Complex Production Process

Manufacturing and assembling a foldable smartphone is more complex than regular non-folding phones, as they have many moving parts and components inside. Companies usually start producing those parts several months before the phone’s launch. Last year, Samsung started readying components for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 as early as May. However, the hinges for the 2022 foldables reportedly entered production at the end of June, which is about a month and a half ahead of the launch.

Earlier Production Schedule for the Hinges

This year, Samsung is said to start manufacturing hinges for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in early June, which means at least a couple of weeks earlier than last year. Based on this production schedule, the new foldables may debut in late July.

New Hinge Design

Samsung could also be starting the production of hinges earlier than usual for a different reason this year. The company is reportedly using a new type of hinge, the so-called waterdrop hinge, which reduces the thickness of the foldables and eliminates the display crease. It’s possible that Samsung may require more time to manufacture and properly test the new hinge and may start production earlier. In that case, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 could still arrive in August.

The company is said to be starting the production of hinges for the new foldables earlier than usual. The launch of the new foldables in July could be due to Samsung’s new hinge design, which requires more testing and manufacturing time. However, there is still a possibility that the new foldables could debut in August.
