With everything pointing to the Galaxy Z Fold 5 getting announced by the end of this July, it is a great idea to take one more look at the current best foldable phone from Samsung, the Galaxy Z Fold 4. More specifically, let's take a look at the Z Fold 4's camera system and what it is capable of.

Now, the cameras on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 are not exactly the best out there, but the idea Samsung is going for is more about versatility than top-notch quality. Let's dive in and get into the nitty gritty.

Galaxy Z Fold 4 camera upgrades

First and foremost, we have a brand new 50MP sensor sitting behind the main camera on the Galaxy Z Fold 4! For context, the Z Fold 3 came with a 12MP main camera. This one comes with a F1.8 aperture and 1.0 μm pixel size.

One notable difference with the previous model here is that it had a larger 1.8 μm pixel size, which allows for more light to be captured. That said, the new main camera uses pixel binning for its default shooting mode, which sacrifices pixel count for better low-light performance.

Next in line we have another new camera, the telephoto. The megapixel count has dropped down from 12MP to 10 MP here, which might sound like a downgrade, but keep in mind that the Galaxy S22 series also comes with a 10MP telephoto and it does quite a good job. Not to mention that the zoom has jumped from 2x to 3x.

The last camera that has received an upgrade that we want to talk about is the under-display snapper situated on the main screen (opened position). It is now covered by a denser display layer meant to do a better job at hiding it away from the users sight, although in our experience it is still visible.

How many cameras does the new Galaxy Z Fold have?

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 comes with a triple camera array on the back and two front-facing cameras — one on the inner display and another on the cover display.

  • 3x telephoto camera – 10MP
  • Ultra-wide camera – 12MP
