AT&T announces the costs and a launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series.

Later this year, Samsung is anticipated to make more improvements to the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

The primary camera is one area where the phone won’t change, though, and Samsung might ignore it. According to a recent report, it is “impossible” for the Z Fold 5 to use Samsung’s amazing 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor.

The rumor’s source doesn’t elaborate on the reasons why the Galaxy Z Fold 5 wouldn’t be able to use the ISOCELL HP2 sensor, including if it has to do with costs, space, or technological restrictions imposed by the folding form factor. In any case, it is anticipated that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 would employ the same primary camera as the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

The 50MP primary camera on the Galaxy Z Fold 5 is identical to that on its predecessor.

Samsung has included the ISOCELL GN3 sensor in the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and will also include it in the Z Fold 5. It has 1.0-micron pixels with a 50MP resolution, an f/1.8 aperture, Dual Pixel PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), and OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). To learn more about the foldable phone’s photography capabilities, watch the video below that compares the Z Fold 4 and Galaxy S22 Ultra cameras.

With an f/1.7 aperture, 0.6-micron pixels, Quad Phase Detection Autofocus for improved low-light performance, Dual Vertical Transfer Gate technology to improve color accuracy and reduce overexposure, and OIS, Samsung’s first-ever 200MP mobile camera shooter apparently won’t be available on the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra introduced the 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor, which might continue to be exclusive to the device throughout the year. It’s uncertain if Samsung will at least improve the telephoto capabilities or other cameras on the Galaxy Z Fold 5. It’s possible that Samsung will strive to enhance the Galaxy Z Fold 5 camera experience in other ways, even if it chooses not to offer the 200MP ISOCELL HP2 sensor, given how even the forthcoming Galaxy A54 is currently being teased with improved Nightography features.

In August or September 2023, Samsung will likely present the Galaxy Z Fold 5 at Unpacked. According to recent reports, the phone will include an enhanced waterdrop-style hinge that would enable flat folding of the smartphone, eliminating the space between the two display halves. The final durability tests for this new hinge design are being conducted by Samsung right now. The phone will reportedly be thinner than the foldable phones of the current generation.
