The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 could come with a much less visible crease thanks to a potential design change. 

According to a report, Samsung could adopt a “droplet”-style hinge that allows the display to form a teardrop shape when closed, making for a much gentler curve. While Samsung has certainly made improvements to the crease over the years, it’s still pretty noticeable on its fourth-gen foldables. 

Both the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 use a “U”-shaped hinge design that puts the display at a sharper angle when closed. This creates a more prominent crease and also puts more stress on the display.

 In addition to a subtler crease, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 design could also make both halves of the display sit flat against each other when the phone’s shut, unlike previous generations of the Galaxy Z Fold that leave a small gap. 

It’s still not clear whether Samsung will bring the droplet-style hinge to the Galaxy Z Flip 5. At least we have next month’s Galaxy Unpacked event to look forward to, where the company will likely take the wraps off the Galaxy S23.
