Remember that the factories of smartphone manufacturers are not all in China, and that countries such as Vietnam and India have recently become privileged host countries for their installations. It is therefore normal that indiscretions emerge in these places. We thus learn that the new Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be equipped with a processor engraved in 4 nm, more precisely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 985 5G. This name has never been mentioned before and it could actually be the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

The device will also be thicker (6.5 mm instead of 6.3 mm for the Z Fold 4) and heavier (275 g against 263 g). Bad news a priori, but the thickness would be increased to make room for a cavity for the S-Pen stylus. As for the weight, it would be due to new photo sensors, larger and more efficient.
