Samsung foldables get slimmer

Roh's blog post also hinted at the possibility of additional products being unveiled, mentioning the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Wearables, which are designed to work harmoniously in an ecosystem, offering a powerful connected experience that seamlessly extends users' needs and personalities.
Roh further added, “We've raised the standards for foldable smartphone ergonomics. A difference of millimeter in a device's thickness may not sound like a big change, but every gram and millimeter in a foldable device requires an engineering breakthrough. It demands craftsmanship with passion. When done well, the benefit to users is huge. That's why we've innovated to make our latest foldables slimmer and lighter than our previous generations.”
Samsung's upcoming releases, during the Samsung Unpacked Event, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5, are expected to feature a redesigned hinge, eliminating the "hinge gap" seen in previous models and reducing overall weight. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is anticipated to be only slightly heavier than the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Customers can now make reservations for the new lineup and, for the first time ever, receive a $50 credit towards the cost of the device when reserving their spot in line, as reported by 9to5Google.
Samsung often tends to tease the fans ahead of the launch to generate excitement and this little 'leak' by Roh is likely a part of it. To know what else these Samsung foldables feature, we will have to wait till the official launch.
