Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5’s Primary Camera won’t change

The Galaxy Z line of smartphones continues to have a leadership position in the rapidly growing market for foldable smartphones. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 from the previous year was able to attract a substantial number of customers because to its durable design and powerful photography capabilities. With the forthcoming Galaxy Z Fold 5G, Samsung is anticipated to make even greater improvements to the device’s build quality. Nevertheless, information obtained from a reliable source suggests that the primary camera on the upcoming foldable phone might not receive any improvements and might instead be identical to the one found on its predecessor.

Design and display

It is “impossible to use HP2” on the Galaxy Z Fold 5, according to Ice Universe, a prominent Samsung tipster. This is the reason why the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will continue to feature the same primary camera as the Z Fold 4, Ice Universe claims. For those who aren’t aware, HP2 refers to Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor, which can be found on the most recent and advanced model of the company’s Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone.

We are unsure of the reason why it is “impossible” to utilize this new sensor with the Z Fold 5 at this time. Could it be due to the size and thickness of the sensor module? Perhaps the mechanism that allows the device to fold and unfold has some difficulties from a technological standpoint. It’s possible that Samsung’s choice not to adopt the HP2 200MP camera sensor was motivated in part by the high price of the sensor.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 was equipped with Samsung’s ISOCELL GN3 sensor, which featured a 1.0-micron pixel size, an f/1.8 aperture, and a resolution of 50 megapixels. The image quality can be improved and the photos can be stabilised thanks to the sensor’s sophisticated capabilities, such as Dual Pixel PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), both of which are integrated with the sensor.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra was the first device to use the aforementioned 200-megapixel H2 sensor. It has some very impressive features built into it, such as an aperture of f/1.7, pixels that are 0.6 microns in size, Quad Phase Detection Autofocus for improved performance in low light, Dual Vertical Transfer Gate technology for improved color accuracy and reduced overexposure, and optical image stabilization (OIS).
