Samsung Galaxy Z Fold6 rumored to use the same main camera

Victor, 21 October 2023

Innovating in the smartphone realm yearly has never been an easy task. Arguably, it's still harder to redesign a modern foldable's internals and complex hinge mechanisms. Rumors have now started to creep up about Samsung's next Z Fold6 phone.

According to industry insider ICE UNIVERSE, we need to taper our expectations regarding the main camera of the Z Fold6. Apparently, Samsung will be reusing the 50MP Samsung GN3 sensor (1/1.56", 1.0µm) for the main camera. This is the same sensor found inside the Z Fold5 as well as the Z Fold4. You need to go as far back as the Z Fold3 to find a different 12MP Sony IMX555 main camera.

If this holds true, admittedly, it is a bit of a bummer, but according to other credible reports by THE ELEC, Samsung might be looking to thin out the Z Fold6 and start to close the widening gap in thickness between its and competitor's products. As per said report, Samsung might be reverse-engineering Huawei's Mate X5 foldable to see how the Chinese company achieved both a thinner profile and a larger internal battery.

For context, the Z Fold5 measures 6.1 mm unfolded and 13.4mm folded, while the Mate X5 is 5.3mm unfolded and 11.1mm folded. The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 is notably thinner still at 5.3mm unfolded and 10.9mm folded. The new OnePlus Open is 5.8mm unfolded and 11.7mm folded.

I bet if got it, he wouldn't be talking like this lol. I've seen covid deniers warn other people from their sick beds.

Whatever it will be, very most likely that I'll upgrade my Fold 3 to Fold 6. Other foldable phones do appear nice on spec sheets, but after I used them, I still kept coming back to my old Fold 3. Samsung software is the most refined. Especially ...
