Meanwhile, the rumour mill has started to churn out more details about the upcoming Galaxy foldable phones. A new leak has now revealed that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will get new image sensors.
Tipster Yogesh Brar, who revealed the details, also leaked the camera specs of the upcoming Samsung foldable smartphones. Let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 specifications, features and other details known so far.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5 Camera Specifications and More Leaked
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 are likely to feature the same number of camera sensors as their respective predecessors. The Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have a triple-camera setup, whereas the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will have a dual-camera setup.
Brar claims that the Fold 5 will feature a 50MP main camera sensor. It will also come with a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a 10MP telephoto camera. The camera setup is similar to the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus.
The Galaxy Z Flip 5, on the other hand, is said to feature a 12MP main camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. Not a lot, in terms of megapixel count at least, is changing. However, Brar claims that the phones might get new sensors. The tipster did not reveal any details about the same.
He further revealed that the phones will get a new hinge. It was recently reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 will get a new water-drop hinge design, instead of the existing U-shaped hinge. The new hinge design should help reduce the crease visibility. OPPO’s Find N2 Flip has a similar mechanism.
Brar reiterated a recent leak, which revealed that the Galaxy Z Flip 5’s outer display will be bigger in size. A recent mockup of the phone’s outer shell revealed the larger 3.4-inch outer display. There is space at the top for the dual-camera setup and an LED flash.
In addition to this, the upcoming foldable phones are said to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC for Galaxy. The customised version of Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon SoC was first featured in the Galaxy S23 series. The US variants of the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 were spotted recently on Geekbench. It revealed that the SoC has a peak clock speed of 3.36GHz, which is the same as the S23 series. The Flip 5 was featured with 8GB of RAM, whereas the Fold 5 had 12GB of RAM.
