For the first time in Samsung Unpacked history, global media congregated in Seoul, South Korea for the unveiling of the brand’s next-generation products. For the uninitiated, the much-anticipated tech event had mostly taken place in major cities on the other side of the globe since its inception in 2009 — think New York, London, Berlin and Barcelona — where they announced new product releases and the latest iterations and updates to their existing product lines.
This July, Unpacked makes its return home to South Korea, the home country of the South Korean multinational electronics corporation and the heart of the K-wave phenomenon. Whether you’re a vibrant, trendsetting creative or wellness advocate, get ready to join the flip side with the latest from the Galaxy Z Fold and Flip phone series, the Watch series, and the Tab series. From launch dates to prices, here are the details.
Flex your versatility with the Galaxy Z Flip5
Are you a content creator or just an individual who values self-expression? Pick up the Galaxy Z Flip5 and slip it into your pocket (or pre-order it now). Its new 3.4-inch Flex Window is 3.78 times larger than that of the Flip 4, which means that you can now enjoy heightened customisation with Widgets and next-level convenience — from replying to texts using Quick Reply with a full QWERTY keyboard on display to making payments through Samsung Wallet without even opening your device.
Thanks to the new Flex Window, you also get to take high-quality selfies with the rear camera, go hands-free with FlexCam, or quickly view and edit shots in Flex Mode. Getting a friend to snap an OOTD for you? Dual Preview allows you to see yourself in the Flex Window so you can make adjustments in real-time to frame that Instagram-worthy shot.
Expect a range of accessories to complement your Flip5 including a Clear Gadget Case, Flap Eco-Leather Case, Flipsuit Case and easy-to-carry Silicone Case with Ring to create a more personalized look.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 is available in four colours: Mint, Graphite, Cream and Lavender. It is priced at SGD1,498 for 256GB, and SGD1,678 for 512GB. You can also find the online exclusive bespoke collection in Green, Blue, Yellow and Gray at the same retail prices.
Work hard, play hard with the Z Fold5
For the ones working on the go, the new Galaxy Z Fold5 is geared up to be a “powerful PC in your pocket”, according to TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience at Samsung Electronics. Revolutionise your productivity with Fold5 features such as Taskbar, two-handed drag and drop, and third-party app optimisation. The S Pen Fold Edition has also been refined to be slimmer — 41% slimmer at 4.35mm to be exact — and more compact.
Go from work to play with the 7.6-inch Main Screen. Equipped with Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform for Galaxy, it delivers an immersive gaming experience with advanced cooling for uninterrupted performance.
Look forward to a range of accessories to complement your Fold5 including a Slim S Pen Case, Clear Gadget Case, Eco-Leather Case, and a Standing Case with Strap.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 is available in three colours: Icy Blue, Phantom Black, and Cream. It is priced at SGD2,398 for 256GB, and SGD2,578 for 512GB. You can also find the online exclusive bespoke collection in Blue and Gray at the same retail prices.
Flex your Samsung Galaxy Zs without the worry
Are foldable phones a good idea? It’s true — foldables have gotten a bad rep in the past for their durability issue. But the new Galaxy Z Flip5 and Fold5 have been upgraded with this concern in mind.
Flex Hinge is a new integrated hinge module that features a dual rail structure to minimise external impacts, promising zero gap crease and less visible screen fold. It is also 2mm slimmer than its predecessor — how bout’ that?
What’s more, the main screen is enhanced with a shock dispersion layer and a rejuvenated back for a more solid display. Along with IPX83 support, armour Aluminium frames, and Corning® Gorilla® Glass Ictus®24 applied to both the Flex Window and back cover, the new Galaxy Z series has come a long way with its innovative enhancements to promise a foldable experience that is uncompromising and absolutely enjoyable.
But we get you. For peace of mind, consider opting for Samsung Care+ Screen Care, the brand’s total care program for Samsung Galaxy Z users.
