According to the manufacturer, this is the thinnest and lightest smartphone ever released in the Galaxy Fold series. Samsung also eliminated a design flaw by eliminating the gap between the halves of the case when folded. 

The gap raised concerns about durability, as dust, sand, dirt, and other particles could get on the phone’s internal display. According to some users, the gap in the last generation, the Galaxy Z Fold4, was even larger than in the Galaxy Z Fold3. As promised, the Galaxy Z Fold5 closes completely when folded, leaving no gaps.
