    Samsung should be five-to-six months away from unveiling the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5. The company is working on these two new foldable phones as we speak. And both devices have just popped up in an online benchmark, revealing some impressive performance levels, even compared to the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

    The benchmark confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 (SM-F946U) and Galaxy Z Flip 5 (SM-F731U) are powered by the very same chipset as the Galaxy S23 series, namely, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 “for Galaxy,” which boasts a higher frequency for the primary “super” core of 3.36GHz instead of 3.2GHz.

    But despite this similar hardware, the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 leave the Galaxy S23 Ultra in the dust, particularly in terms of this benchmark's single-core tests.

    Samsung's upcoming foldable phones set a new level of performance

    These early online performance tests indicate that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will outshine Samsung's finest flagship phone to date, even though they all use the same SoC. Indeed, Samsung's upcoming foldables don't have a “Plus” variant of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 but rock the overclocked “for Galaxy” chipset.

    The Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Z Fold 5 scored a little over 2,000 points in single-core tests and reached a 5,213 / 5,022 multi-core score, respectively — with the flip phone somehow outperforming the book-like foldable in the latter category.

    The benchmark also confirms that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 has 12GB of RAM, whereas the Z Flip 5 carries 8GB.

    In contrast, the Galaxy S23 Ultra (SM-S918B) scores around 1,500 points in the single-core tests and anywhere between 4,400 and 5,000 points in multi-core tests. So although multi-core performance might be similar between the S23 series and the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, the 5th generation foldables have somehow scored considerably higher in single-core benchmarks, using essentially the same hardware S23.

    Samsung should introduce the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 at the next Unpacked launch event, which, although unconfirmed, should take place around August or September if history is any indication.

    Update: It appears that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5 perform roughly the same. The difference was caused by the unreleased phones getting benchmarked in Geekbench 6 rather than Geekbench 5.
