There is some spicy news for the upcoming Samsung smartphone. No, it’s not the soon-to-be-released Galaxy S23 series, which is set to debut on February 1st. The rumors refer to the Galaxy Z Fold 5, which is expected to be released in the second half of 2023. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is rumored to have a 108MP primary rear camera.
According to a new report from Vietnamese publication The Pixel, Samsung may ditch the 50MP camera for the 108MP main camera currently on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This, in turn, will make the device a bit heavier and it will weigh around 275 grams (which is a bit hard to believe). For comparison, Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs 263 grams.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is rumored to get a 108MP main camera and a 64MP telephoto camera.
This weight increase will be partially due to the new 108MP camera that rumors are leaning toward. This is great news (although it’s nothing concrete and just a rumor), especially since foldable phones are often criticized for their less-than-stellar camera performance. Not that they’re bad by any means, they’re just not at the level of premium slate phones, but priced above them.
It is rumored that not only the main camera of the Galaxy Z Fold 5, but also the telephoto camera will be developed. The 108-megapixel primary camera will reportedly be accompanied by a 64-megapixel camera with 2x optical zoom and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide shooter on the Galaxy Z Fold 5. Galaxy Z Fold 4 last year. The company’s experience shows that we should not expect a major revision of the camera two years in a row.
Other Galaxy Z Fold 5 details include that the phone will have a dedicated slot for the S-Pen, and uses a new hinge design to reduce the screen crease and fold the phone completely flat.
