Galaxy Z Fold 5 could get a major camera boost, built-in S Pen slot

There is some spicy news for an upcoming Samsung smartphone. No, it isn’t the soon-to-be-launching Galaxy S23 series, which is all set to debut on February 1. The rumors are about the Galaxy Z Fold 5, which is expected to launch in the second half of 2023. Going by the rumor, the Galaxy Z Fold 5, could come with a 108MP primary rear camera.

According to a new report by the Vietnamese publication The Pixel, Samsung might ditch the 50MP camera for the 108MP primary camera, which is currently found on the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This, in turn, would make the device a bit heavier, and it will weigh around 275 grams (which is a little hard to believe). For comparison’s sake, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs 263 grams.

This increase in weight will be partly because of the new 108MP camera that the rumors are leaning towards. This is great news (although it isn’t anything concrete, and is just a rumor), especially since foldable phones are often criticized for their less-than-stellar camera performance. Not that they are bad by any means, they just aren’t at the level of the premium slab phones but are priced higher than them.

Not only the Galaxy Z Fold 5 main camera but the telephoto camera is also rumored to get a boost. As per reports, the main 108MP snapper will be accompanied by a 64MP camera with 2x optical zoom and a 12MP ultrawide shooter on the Galaxy Z Fold 5. But one should take this piece of information with a pinch of salt since Samsung upgraded the cameras on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 last year. The company’s track record indicates that we shouldn’t expect a major camera revision two years in a row, and especially not a downgrade from 3x zoom to 2x zoom.

Other details about the Galaxy Z Fold 5 include that the phone will come with a dedicated slot for the S-Pen, and is implementing a new hinge design to decrease the screen crease and let the phone fold completely flat.
