Samsung should announce the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 in five to six months. These two new foldable phones are currently being developed by the business. Even when compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra, both devices recently appeared in an online benchmark, displaying some outstanding performance levels.
The benchmark demonstrates that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (SM-F946U) and Galaxy Z Flip 5 (SM-F731U) are powered by the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “for Galaxy” processor as the Galaxy S23 series, which has a higher frequency for the principal “super” core of 3.36GHz rather than 3.2GHz.
However, despite having identical technology, the future Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 outperform the Galaxy S23 Ultra, especially in the single-core testing of this benchmark.
Even though they all share the same SoC, our early online performance tests show that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will outperform Samsung’s best flagship phone to date. In fact, Samsung’s future foldables use the overclocked “for Galaxy” processor rather than the “Plus” version of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 each achieved a single-core score of little over 2,000 points and a multi-core score of 5,213 / 5,022, with the flip phone oddly surpassing the book-like foldable in the latter.
The score also reveals that the Z Flip 5 only has 8GB of RAM, in contrast to the 12GB of the Galaxy Z Fold 5.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra (SM-S918B), in comparison, achieves results in both single-core and multi-core tests that range from 4,400 to 5,000 points. Therefore, even though the S23 series and the future Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 may both exhibit similar multi-core performance, the 5th generation foldables have managed to achieve significantly superior single-core benchmark results while utilising virtually the same S23 technology.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 should be unveiled by Samsung at the next Unpacked launch event, which, though not confirmed, should occur in August or September if history is any guide.
