    The Galaxy Z Fold 5’s global variant just got benchmarked!

    In less than a month, Samsung will take the stage at its Unpacked event in Korea to announce a number of new flagship devices, including the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5. And it seems Samsung is finally beginning to properly test the Galaxy Z Fold 5, as the international/global variant of the phone has popped up on the Geekbench website.

    The first Galaxy Z Fold 5 benchmark was spotted back in March for the USA variant, so it's taken three months for the global variant to make an appearance. The global variant's single-core performance score is lower than the US variant, but we can expect all variants to have the same performance once the device hits retail shelves as Samsung's foldables are powered by the same chip in every market.

    The benchmark also confirms the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will launch running Android 13 out of the box instead of Android 14, which is to be expected, especially now that Samsung is releasing its new foldables a little earlier than usual. The Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 will, however, run a newer version of One UI – version 5.1.1, to be exact.

    One UI 5.1.1 is expected to mostly bring new features designed for foldable devices and will, at the very least, be released for older Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip models. Some features might be released for Samsung's non-folding devices, but if history is any guide, those features probably won't be too exciting.

    As for updates for the Galaxy Z Fold 5, it will be eligible for four major Android OS upgrades and five years of security updates based on Samsung's current software policy. Samsung is free to surprise us by expanding that policy to include five major Android OS updates for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (and Z Flip 5), though we won't be holding our breath and neither should you.
