Samsung launched the very first foldable smartphone in 2019 and wowed everyone. The South-Korean tech giant is one of the first companies to have launched a fully operational foldable smartphone in the market. Over the years, the company has refined the foldable formula, which led to the release of a more refined Galaxy Z Fold 4.

While the company hasn’t officially discussed the release date of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5, we can get a clear idea of the company’s foldable release window by looking at the previous Galaxy Z Fold launch dates.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 release date prediction: When does the Samsung Fold 5 release?

The first Samsung Fold appeared in 2019, and since then, the company has launched new foldable smartphones every year. So, there’s no reason to believe Samsung will skip this year. 

In fact, according to Samsung’s mobile head, the company will likely focus more on the foldable smartphone in the future, overtaking the S series flagships in shipments by 2025. Add this statement to several rumors about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 flying about the internet.

At this moment, Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 5. But the company has followed a strict fall window like clockwork. Only the Galaxy Z Fold 3 was an exception, which was released a few days early in August. As last year’s Z Fold 4 was released in September, it is a safe bet to say that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 release date will most likely be in September 2023 or late August at the earliest.
