Diversity thanks to innovative shape

Like the Galaxy Z Flip, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G offers many options thanks to its special shape, both when playing back and when taking photos and videos.

  • Flex mode – Samsung developed the Flex Mode in close collaboration with Google – a user interface that takes full advantage of the foldability of the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. For example, if it is opened at a 90-degree angle, the top and bottom halves of the display can be used as two separate screens. So users can easily display videos or other content in the top half and operate the smartphone via the bottom half.
  • Use hands-free – When opened, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G can be positioned at a variety of angles up to a full opening at 180 °. This not only offers potential for exciting selfies, but also enables hands-free video chats with Google Duo and allows you to concentrate fully on the conversation.
  • Standalone camera – The smartphone can literally stand alone and take photos: When open, users can simply put the foldable down to take pictures conveniently on the go. Hyperlapse videos or photos in night mode in low light conditions are possible. When closed, you can also take selfies with one hand with the camera on the back without having to open the smartphone.

Part of the Samsung Galaxy family

As a member of the Galaxy family, the Galaxy Z Flip 5G is also part of the Galaxy ecosystem. Accustomed performance and range of functions in the areas of camera, display, battery and security should be given. Two space-saving and long-lasting batteries that support the quick charge function are included. Wearables such as the Galaxy Buds + can also be charged inductively thanks to Wireless PowerShare. Samsung Health and Samsung Knox are also available.

Exclusive offer for pre-orders

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G comes on August 7th and is available in the Samsung online shop and in German retail at selected retailers. Customers who pre-order their device from Deutsche Telekom between July 22 and August 6 will receive a limited Samsung gift box worth over 300 euros.
