Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 may get a 108-megapixel camera

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has been appearing in the news quite frequently. Continuing that trend, we have another leak from tipster Dohyun Kim. According to Kim, the company’s next foldable will feature a 108-megapixel main camera. Responding to Kim’s tweet, tipster @chunvn8888 said that the camera setup on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will be the same as the S22 Ultra with the exception of the periscope lens. Thus, there’s a possibility that the 108-megapixel sensor on Z fold 4 will be the same as on the S22 Ultra.

Samsung ships Galaxy Z Fold 3 with a 12-megapixel main sensor. Thus it will be a massive upgrade if the rumor turns out to be true. We also recently learned that the device could feature a 10-megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom. So we now have a brief outlook of the Samsung Galaxy Fold 4’s camera setup, which is likely to consist of a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 10-megapixel 3x telephoto lens, and a 12-megapixel ultrawide sensor.

Samsung is also tipped to bring a 10-megapixel selfie camera to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It’s still unclear if this is for the cover camera or for the under-display camera inside. The low-resolution 4-megapixel under-display sensor on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is fairly average for a high-end device like this. Thus, an upgrade would seem to be required.

Besides the camera system, the Galaxy Fold 4 is said to feature an improved hinge. As per tipster @Galox_, Samsung will use a single-hinge designthath is supposed to make the device thinner and lighter while bringing down its cost. Tipster Ice Universe also believes that the Fold 4 will be thinner and lighter, so there could be something to this claim. In the same tweet, he denied the possibility of that Galaxy Fold 4 getting an S-pen slot. Earlier this year, we heard reports about the same, but they may not turn out to be true after all.

5 things this $1,100 foldable does better than the Galaxy Z Fold 4
Galaxy Z Fold 4 on the left and Tecno Phantom V Fold on the right.

The most affordable book-style foldable, the Tecno Phantom V Fold, costs around $1,100. It undercuts the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 by a significant margin, especially in the market it's selling in.

I’ve been using the Tecno Phantom V Fold for a week, and surprisingly, it does five things better than the $1,800 foldable from Samsung. It's something that sounds impossible, but it's true.

I used 3 top flip phones, and this is why the Galaxy Z Flip 4 still rules
The Galaxy Z Flip 4's hinge, and the phone half open.

It has been around since late 2022, but the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 remains the gold standard of compact folding smartphones, and I say this even after extensively using its biggest rivals.

However, it’s not because of power, price, looks, or because I think I prefer it over the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It’s something much more important, and it’s where Samsung’s experience in the world of foldables gives it an advantage over everyone else. I’m talking about the hinge.

Latest Galaxy Z Flip 5 leak shows a big screen upgrade
The cover screen on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

We've been hearing rumors regarding the exterior screen for the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 5 for a few months, but a new render seems to further corroborate those previous reports while also providing a sliver of new information. According to an image shared by SamMobile, expect the Z Flip 5 to have a screen that covers nearly the entirety of the closed top section of the foldable — a huge upgrade over the Z Flip 4.

The previous concept images we've seen (shared by YouTube leaker SuperRoader) imagined the front display to be split into two discrete parts: one small screen next to the cameras to display the time, battery life, and other quick information — plus a larger screen that takes up the rest of the space that can be used to respond to notifications, take selfies using the rear cameras, and interact with the rest of the phone's features without needing to unfold it.
