The Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 will receive a significant camera upgrade
The Samsung Galaxy Fold series has been a great showcase for the engineering capabilities of the South Korean giant. Over the years, Samsung have ironed out the various issues that come with a complex folding mechanism, such as a more durable screen and robust hinge. The original Galaxy Fold was more a proof of concept, but the following iterations became usable, everyday devices.
However, one area that hasn’t received a lot of love and care is in the camera department. Although priced well above flagship phones, the previous Samsung Galaxy Fold 3 was noted for its poor camera performance, and was even comparable to low to mid-range phones.
A new report suggests that’s about to change with the Samsung Galaxy Fold 4. The upcoming foldable device from Samsung is said to feature the same 10 MP f/2.4 70mm telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom from the Samsung Galaxy S22.
That’s a significant upgrade from the current Galaxy Fold 3, which has a 12 MP f/2.4 52mm telephoto camera with 2x zoom. This is also the same camera used with the Fold 2, which was released just under 2 years ago. The camera is long overdue for an update.
Unfortunately, the report states the 10 MP selfie camera will remain the same. Furthermore, details about the additional wide and ultrawide cameras have not been disclosed.
As well as improvements to the camera, the Galaxy Fold 4 will reportedly make improvements to the hinge design and display, with a new Ultra Thin Glass technology. It will also be the first in the series to include an S Pen, with a slot within phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 is expected to be released in August this year. Samsung are expected to promote the Galaxy Fold 4 as a mainstream device, with a similar marketing budget as the Galaxy S22.
