Yesterday a photo of a clear protective case for the Galaxy Z Flip 5 leaked in a real-life photo, confirming some key design elements, including the massive folder-shape cover screen. Now, that seemingly-official Galaxy Z Flip 5 clear case has appeared in a couple more photos for good measure.
These photos show the protective case from different angles. Once again, they confirm that the Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a big irregularly-shaped cover screen, two cameras, and an LED flash.
Upon further inspection of this clear case (via @UniverseIce), we can also extrapolate that the Galaxy Z Flip 5 likely has flat edges all around.
Additionally, it has a centered USB-C port at the bottom and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the side key. The side-mounted fingerprint has to remain uncovered, which is why that side area in the protective case is cut out entirely.
Galaxy Z Flip 5 coming early with a less visible crease?
A larger cover screen is only one piece of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 puzzle. A few other interesting bits and details also appear to take shape around the next-gen foldable flip phone through leaks and rumors.
When the large cover screen was first rumored in December, that information was accompanied by a few details on the Galaxy Z Flip 5's alleged hinge design. Supposedly, the phone has a waterdrop hinge that contributes to making the foldable display crease less visible.
Meanwhile, the cover screen rumor appears to become more valid by the day. So, the chances of the other half of the original rumor being correct seem relatively high. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 could indeed have a waterdrop hinge.
And yet another unusual development is that Samsung may unveil the Galaxy Z Flip 5 earlier than usual. Instead of hosting an Unpacked event in August, the company might do it in July. Until then, bits and pieces about the Z Flip 5 will likely continue to leak.
