On Wednesday (July 26), Samsung tweeted photos of BTS’ Jimin, RM, J-Hope and Suga in ads for the latest iteration of Samsung’s foldable phones announced earlier in the day during Samsung Unlocked.
The new Galaxy Flip 5 and Fold 5 are equipped with a few upgrades. For example, Galaxy Z Flip 5 has a slimmer hinge design that makes it lie completely flat and enhanced camera capabilities including Flex mode, Flex Cam, Astro Photo and the ability to take hands-free photos.
Galaxy Z Flip 5 ($999.99) is available in 256GB and 512GB and comes in four colors including graphite, cream, lavender and the mint green phone which happens to be J-Hope’s “favorite.”

Suga and RM are seen holding the Z Fold 5 in Samsung’s Twitter thread posted Wednesday. “Every moment is a great moment to wear his brightest smile and take the best selfies on the #GalaxyZFlip5,” reads one caption, while the other notes, “As the rapper and songwriter in BTS, it’s no wonder that SUGA loves multitasking features on #GalaxyZFold5 – great when he’s writing lyrics on the go!”
“Samsung is revolutionizing the mobile industry with foldables by setting the standard and continually refining the experience,” TM Roh, president and head of mobile experience business at Samsung Electronics said in a news release. “Every day, more people choose our foldables because they offer an experience people want that they can’t get on any other device.
