Samsung is expected to debut a major update to its flagship foldable phone later this year, but it looks like there may be fewer changes than many expected. According to a couple of new leaks, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 won’t change its external display or cameras.
With the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Samsung is sure to introduce a new hinge design. That should dramatically reduces screen creasing on the indoor display, as achieved by many of Samsung’s competitors such as Oppo.
By The universe of icea fairly reliable Samsung tip, the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5 will keep the same 6.2-inch screen on its outer screen as the three previous generations.
While it hasn’t been confirmed that the display’s aspect ratio will change, the same size means it will most likely change. It’s a bit of a shame to see, as Samsung has long been criticized for its external display on the Fold range, as its very tall and narrow design can be awkward for typing and some apps. At the same time, other brands like Xiaomi and Honor’s similar-style folding outdoor displays have an exterior display much more like a traditional smartphone.
However, it may be disappointing that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 may not see a camera update either. It was previously reported that the Fold 5 would arrive with the same 108-megapixel camera that Samsung has used in its Ultra phones for the past couple of generations, which has now been replaced by the 200-megapixel sensor on the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
There is room for interpretation Ice tweeted about it, as the phone is said to use the same “camera module”, but that still strongly suggests that no update is coming. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 uses the same 50MP main camera as the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S23, and we were pretty happy with it in our review last year.
The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is expected to arrive later this year, along with a new Flip device and Galaxy Watch.
