Galaxy Z Fold 4 could boast of a better telephoto camera than the S22 Ultra
The foldable space is getting hotter with each passing year. Samsung is the undisputed market leader at the moment, but given that some other companies have released impressive bendable phones this year and some manufacturers are clearly gearing up to release refined versions of their older phones, South The Korean giant will have to work hard. Maintain your position. One area that needs improvement is the camera and it looks like the company is already working on it.
We have been hearing rumors that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will have a better camera array than the Fold 3, with a 12MP primary sensor, a 12MP telephoto module with 2x optical zoom, and a 12MP ultrawide unit. Reputable leaker Ice Universe has now revealed the exact camera specs for the Fold 4.
The tipster says that the next Galaxy Z Fold phone will feature a 50MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide angle sensor, and a 12MP telephoto unit with 3x optical zoom.
Ice says this will be Samsung’s best 3x telephoto unit yet – even better than the 3x sensor on the Galaxy S22 Ultra – and it could make the Galaxy Z Fold 4 one of the best camera phones of the year, though the S22 Ultra will still be there. Zooming is king, considering that it also has a 10x periscope lens.
Having said that, it’s best not to expect dramatic changes. That’s because Samsung’s number one goal with foldable phones is thinness and ease of use, and you can cram so much into a foldable phone weighing only 260 grams, so physically larger sensors may not be an option at the moment.
Regardless, those are some decent camera specs, and any shortfalls will be corrected by the software.
As per the recently leaked renders, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will sport the same camera array as the Galaxy S22 Ultra without the bump and could have slightly wider internal and external screens. As per earlier reports, the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus and it is unlikely to have a slot for the S Pen. Samsung will likely showcase the phone in August alongside the Z Flip 4 and its next smartwatch.
