Galaxy Z Fold 6 Camera: No Upgrades, Reportedly Unchanged

Samsung fans anticipating a camera upgrade with the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6 might face disappointment. A leak from a typically reliable source, Ice Universe, indicates the Fold 6’s cameras will be identical to the Fold 5, which were, in turn, identical to the Fold 4.

The leak specifies that “all camera specifications, including front camera, rear camera, UPC [Under Panel Camera], and aperture value, are exactly the same, and there is no change.”

Camera Specifications

This suggests the Fold 6 will sport the same 50MP main sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, a 10MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture and 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP ultrawide lens with an f/2.2 aperture and a 123-degree field of view. Both the main and telephoto lenses are expected to continue featuring optical image stabilization (OIS).

Competition from Chinese Brands

Samsung’s pace of innovation in its foldable phones has been slow in recent years. Meanwhile, Chinese brands like Vivo and Oppo have been consistently pushing the boundaries. For example, Vivo’s latest X Fold 3 Pro foldable claims the title of the world’s lightest foldable phone, weighing just 236 grams, despite housing a substantial 5700mAh battery — larger than some well-known bar phones like the iPhone 15 Pro Max. Additionally, the X Fold 3 Pro has an impressive camera setup, possibly making it the best foldable camera phone.

Minimal Upgrades

In contrast, Samsung has been keeping the upgrade list minimal, only introducing expected generational updates like a new processor. However, this year, there might be a notable change in the Fold 6’s design. Samsung is reportedly planning to provide a wider cover screen, making it feel more like a conventional phone when closed. Apart from this, leaks so far suggest no major changes or upgrades in the forthcoming foldable.
