Upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 foldables to get utilitarian ring cases

Galaxy Unpacked 2023 event is confirmed for 26 July where the South Korean electronics giant will unveil the highly anticipated next-generation foldable for 2023. We believe Samsung will present Galaxy Z Flip 5 with a new hinge technology for a unique flip design to be ahead of the curve. Of course, the flagship Z Fold 5 is equally high on our tracking radar.

While both the foldable smartphones will set the bar high for other OEMs to take up the challenge, a new leak suggests official cases are on the horizon. This peculiar accessory draws inspiration from the first-party case for the current flagship Galaxy S23 series and things couldn’t have been more interesting.

The leakster revealing these fresh details on his Thread profile is none other than Evan Blass. The highly reliable tipster confirms the ring cases for the foldable phones will be announced at the annual event alongside the two high-end mobile devices. Since both the foldables are different in their form factor, so does the respective ring cases for them.

For the Galaxy Z Fold 5, the ring case gets a dual accent design as part of the case latching onto the cover is black while the second section is clear white. The Galaxy Z Fold on the other hand has a unicolor scheme but the same aesthetics as the ring case. Compared to the official case for the Galaxy S23 which has a square design and the option to attach other accessories like a camera stand, these upcoming cases for the foldable smartphones have no indication of any such functionality for now.

For the Z Fold 5 the ring accessory seems a bit unstable in portrait mode and the Z Fold can no way be used in that mode. In the landscape mode, however, both phones should be stable enough for content consumption when the kickstand ring is engaged.
