With a quick swipe up on the screen, access Samsung Wallet to pay on-the-go, access QR codes and coupons, as well as boarding passes, membership cards, and digital keys.

Take selfies with the rear camera thanks to the larger Flex Window and capture hands-free photos from creative angles with FlexCam. Review, adjust the colour tone, or delete images easily with the Quick View in the Flex Window. When taking a photo of a friend, Dual Preview lets them see themselves in the Flex Window so they can make adjustments in real time to capture their best shot. The camera-stabilizing Super Steady feature enables smooth captures on the go, while Auto Framing helps to ensure that no one is left out.

The Galaxy Z Flip5 also adds AI solution improvements to its camera system, improved Nightography capabilities that optimize photos and videos in ambient lighting conditions, and AI-powered image signal processing (ISP) algorithm that correct visual noise that can spoil low-light images while enhancing details and colour tone.

With an even larger screen, the Galaxy Z Fold5 is the thinnest and lighting Galaxy Z Fold model to date. Along with Multi Window and App Continuity, it features Taskbar, drag and drop, and optimization of third-party apps.

The improved Taskbar enables you to quickly switch among up to four frequently used apps. Newly introduced two-handed drag and drop is also available: touch and hold an image in Samsung Gallery with one finger and use another finger to open the Samsung Notes app to drag-and-drop the image. With hidden pop-up, an app can continue running in the background, allowing you to watch video content in full screen and chat with friends in a floating pop-up on the side of the screen.
