Samsung’s recently released Galaxy Z Flip5 has many improvements in design, and the external screen is also larger. In addition, the machine also has a cool feature, is the USB cable can be connected to the external display.
Igeekphone notes that the USB ports of the Galaxy Z Flip5 and Galaxy Z Fold5 both support version 3.2 of the standard, which means that video signals can be output and external displays can be connected. This is very convenient for users who want to watch videos, play games or make presentations on a large screen.
However, the Galaxy Z Flip5 does not support running Samsung’s DeX mode. DeX mode is a feature that turns a phone into a computer, requiring higher performance and heat dissipation. The Galaxy Z Flip5 does not meet these requirements due to its design, so it does not support DeX mode.
To realize the external display function, the user only needs a data cable that supports the USB 3.2 standard, and connects the phone to the display on the line, without any other hardware or software. This is a very simple and practical feature that makes foldable phones even more powerful.
