The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is launched with a 12 MP primary rear camera which is the same resolution from the original Galaxy Z Flip. However, according to a new report, Samsung may finally be looking to upgrade this particular sensor to next year’s Galaxy Z Flip 6.
Other than the sensor area and focus view, the 12 MP on Samsung’s current clamshell foldable hasn’t seen a big change in megapixel count. While this setup delivers more than decent image quality, as seen in our Galaxy Z Flip 5 review, there are issues where the low resolution doesn’t help much when shooting in low light and using the zoom. But this may change on the successor of the device.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 6 camera specifications
As mentioned in the Dutch publication Galaxy ClubSamsung is said to be testing a 50MP main sensor on the Galaxy Z Flip 6. The camera is likely to be the same element fitted to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy S22, and eventually carried over to their Galaxy successors. Z Fold 5 (Review) and Galaxy S23 (Review) respectively.
At the same time, it is not known if there are any changes planned for other cameras besides the wide sensor. The Galaxy Z Flip 5’s secondary ultra-wide and selfie sensors haven’t changed much in years. So it would be safe to say that there could be improvements in these testers.
After all, after focusing on improving its form factor this year, it wouldn’t be surprising if Samsung finally gave its clamshell series a much-needed upgrade in the camera department.
Apart from the camera, details about the Galaxy Z Flip 6 are scarce. However, the obvious Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset could take the lead. Presumably, the foldable could use the rumored stacked battery, which would allow for a slimmer design but with a bigger battery life.
