2023 Could Be the Year of Increased Competition in the Foldable Market
Foldable devices have been a hot topic in the tech world, but the market has been largely dominated by Samsung. However, this is set to change in 2023 as more manufacturers are expected to enter the foldable market or release their foldable devices internationally. This will push Samsung to step up its game and introduce meaningful upgrades to the Galaxy Z lineup.
Dust Resistance Could Be a New Feature in the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5
A tweet by a reliable source suggests that Samsung is considering adding dust proof certification to the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. This is possible due to the new gap-less design. While it is unclear if the devices will receive official IP ratings, this move seems like the next logical step for Samsung, which has already brought water resistance to the Z lineup with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.
Increased Durability is Key to Mainstream Adoption of Foldables
Durability has been a major pitfall of foldable devices, and possibly the biggest obstacle in their way of becoming truly mainstream. However, with the introduction of dust resistance, Samsung could be taking a step in the right direction towards making foldables more durable and accessible to a wider audience.
