Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Z Flip5: Camera specifications leaked
While Samsung relies on the best hardware currently available for the chipsets and displays of its foldables, the cameras have been lagging behind for years. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 (review) and Galaxy Z Flip4 (review) caught up significantly. However, the cameras of the current generation still don’t really keep up with the rest of the innovative technology. Today the first details about the cameras of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 have surfaced and there is good news and bad news.
According to tipster Yogesh Brar, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 will have the same 50-megapixel main camera, the same 12-megapixel ultra-wide, and the same 10-megapixel telephoto camera. The Galaxy Z Flip5 also retains the dual 12-megapixel setup with wide and ultra-wide cameras. That’s the not particularly promising part.
The good news is that the Samsung smartphones are getting new camera sensors, which should result in better image quality. It’s unclear if all sensors on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 get an update or just some. The report also mentions an improved hinge design, larger outer displays, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chipset.
Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic is said to have a 10% larger display
The current Samsung Galaxy Watch5 (44 mm) and Galaxy Watch5 Pro (46 mm) each have 1.4 inch displays with a resolution of 450 x 450 pixels and a pixel density of 321 ppi. For the upcoming Galaxy Watch6 series, Samsung is not only bringing back the rotating bezel, but is also working on larger displays, according to a new tip.
According to well-known tipster Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic will have a 1.47-inch display and a higher resolution to accommodate the extra 0.07-inch. That may not sound like much, but in fact the new displays would have 10% more display area. The resolution should be up to 470 x 470 pixels to keep the same pixel density.
Earlier leaks had already revealed the battery capacities. Accordingly, the 44mm Watch6 and 46mm Watch6 Classic are expected to have a capacity of 425mAh. For comparison, the current 44mm Watch5 model has a 410mAh cell, while the 46mm Pro has a 590mAh battery under the hood. The predecessor Galaxy Watch4 Classic in 46 mm has a 1.4 inch display with 450 x 450 pixels and a 361 mAh battery.
