Even though Samsung only released the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in August 2022, rumors regarding the Galaxy Z Fold 5 have already begun to circulate.
In 2023, Samsung plans to release its latest foldable smartphone, which will feature a number of significant design updates. The gadget might include a totally new chipset that is based on the 4nm process, and it might even have an S-Pen slot built right in, similar to what the Galaxy S22 Ultra has.
According to a report by ThePIXEL, a new chipset with the name Qualcomm Snapdragon 985 5G is rumored to be powering the test version of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5. It is based on a process node that is 4 nm. This is the first time that we have come across any information regarding this chipset, and the maker of semiconductors has not yet made any formal announcements regarding it.
Also, it is reported that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 May get an S Pen Slot
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is intended to serve as a direct successor to Samsung’s Note line of smartphones. This is due to the fact that it incorporates the Note’s signature embedded S Pen and has the largest screen of any Samsung smartphone that does not fold. But, in reality, the Z Fold is the actual successor to the Galaxy Note in terms of the function that it plays in Samsung’s product line.
Most crucially, if the S Pen were to become a more fundamental component of the Galaxy Z Fold, its function might be defined even more. In spite of the fact that Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip smartphones have undergone significant development over the course of the past two years, foldable phones continue to feel like a solution in search of a problem. Even seemingly insignificant modifications, such as adding a port for the S Pen, might go a long way toward clarifying exactly who and what the Fold is designed for. This is highly relevant in light of the fact that Samsung is marketing the Z Fold as a device with a focus on productivity. This is evident by new features such as the ability to use the bottom half of the phone as a tiny touchpad when the phone is folded halfway.
Both the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Fold 3 are compatible with the S Pen, however, the stylus must be purchased separately, and there is no mechanism for attaching it to the smartphone itself. However, the S Pen may be used with both devices. When the device is closed, the S Pen would certainly offer an issue if it were embedded because doing so would add additional thickness to a device that is already heavier than the typical phone.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 might get significant camera upgrade
It was previously disclosed that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 will contain a triple camera unit, one of which will be a 50-megapixel ISOCELL GN3 camera, as well as a front-facing camera with a resolution of 12 megapixels. There are still many aspects of the smartphone that are unknown to the public.
A source recently revealed information suggesting that the Galaxy Z Fold 5 may include a camera sensor with 108 megapixels. According to the rumor, the Z Fold 5 device may feature an entirely new camera configuration when it is released.
At the Galaxy Unpacked event in August, just like it does every year, Samsung might show off its brand-new foldable device. In the following days, we should be getting additional information regarding the device.
In addition to this, the South Korean business has now (inadvertently) disclosed the release date of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S23 series.
