Ice Universe’s tweet debunks recent claims suggesting that the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5 would introduce an IP58 rating, marking a significant milestone for foldable phones. However, according to the tipster, it appears that Samsung will likely stick with the IPX8 rating for water resistance, similar to its previous foldable devices. While this may come as a disappointment for some users hoping for enhanced durability, it’s important to remember that Samsung’s IPX8 rating already provides commendable protection against water damage.

Ice Universe further addresses the crease on the Z Fold5’s inside panel, stating that it will remain consistent with the crease found on its predecessor, the Z Fold4. According to the tipster, the crease will be virtually indistinguishable between the two devices. While some may have hoped for improvements in this aspect, it seems that Samsung has maintained a similar design approach, prioritizing durability and functionality over a completely seamless folding experience.
