towards an improvement of its camera

Unlike its predecessors, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 should finally update its camera. A must to allow Samsung’s folding smartphone to be at the level of the leaders.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has made notable improvements over its predecessors. The third generation folding smartphone is the confirmation for Samsung, which signs an efficient and convincing device. However, the South Korean manufacturer sometimes gives the impression of stagnating on certain points, such as the photo. The rear photo block of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is very similar to that of the previous model, with a triple module including a wide-angle (f / 1.8), an ultra-wide-angle (f / 2.2) and a telephoto lens (f / 2.4), each time associated with 12 megapixel sensors.

This solution allows the folding smartphone to offer good performance, but remains frustrating. The Galaxy Z Fold 3 lacks ambition in this area and is not at the level of the big names of the moment, nor even a reference at Samsung. The Galaxy S remain the manufacturer’s flagship models, as evidenced by the results obtained with the Galaxy S22 Ultra. With a base price of 1,800 euros, we can legitimately expect better from a product that wants to lead the way. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 could finally bring something new in photos.

At least one camera would be improved

According to GalaxyClub, Samsung is determined to review its copy this year. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 would feature a new telephoto lens with a 10-megapixel sensor and 3x optical zoom. A well-known module for the brand since it is already present in the Galaxy S22. On paper, this choice may seem like a step backwards in terms of the number of pixels, but the definition is not the only element to consider. We can expect improvements in pixel size or PDAF and OIS (optical image stabilization) functions.

If Samsung decides to upgrade the telephoto lens, we can expect changes for the other cameras. However, there is no leak on this yet as the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is due to arrive this summer.

Samsung needs to upgrade its photo block

Often presented as a guarantee of quality, the number of pixels is not the only thing to look at when choosing a good “photophone”. However, the Galaxy Z Fold series has not changed much in terms of photos since 2019. This choice can be explained by the manufacturer’s desire to develop other elements. In 2022, Samsung has every interest in betting on the photo part to stay in the race.

For the rest, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is expected to feature a 7.6-inch folding screen and a second 6.2-inch screen. Inside, the folding smartphone would feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ to deliver class-leading performance. It would also offer better support for the stylus.
