Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 rumored to pack 108MP camera alongside S Pen slot

From 9to5google.com


While Samsung is gearing up for the launch of the Galaxy S23 series at the moment, work is also underway on the next generation of foldables, and a new rumor claims the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will bring a massive camera upgrade.

A report from the Vietnamese publication The Pixel claims that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will debut with the 108MP camera sensor found in devices including the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The sensor would support OIS and dual-pixel auto focus, all while arriving with f/1.7 aperture and a 26mm equivalent focal length.

Apparently, that main 108MP camera would be used alongside a 64MP telephoto sensor with 2x optical zoom and a 12MP camera with ultrawide lens.

The report goes on to reiterate some past reports, including the Galaxy Z Fold 5 adopting an S Pen slot to stow away the stylus when it’s not in use. In its Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Fold 4, Samsung has had to rely on cases of varying quality to keep the S Pen on hand. Over the weekend, another report mentioned that the Fold 5 would adopt a new hinge design that would lessen the display crease.

9to5Google’s Take

While I’m taking this information with a grain of salt, it’s certainly exciting if it turns out to be true.

The camera experience on foldables is one of the main reasons I always find myself slowly gravitating back to a traditional device within a few weeks or months. Year after year, I’ve moved into Google’s latest Pixel despite having purchased a Galaxy Z Fold device just a few months prior.

The adoption of a 108MP camera, the same one from the Galaxy S22 Ultra, could certainly do a lot to improve the experience of carrying a Samsung foldable as your one and only device. That sensor contributes to Samsung’s best overall camera experience, with better consistency and overall better-looking shots compared to the 12MP and 50MP sensors used in the past few generations of foldables. Can it beat a Pixel foldable and Google’s camera software? Probably not, but it would be a step in the right direction.
