Samsung to improve Galaxy Z Flip 5 camera and battery with update
A new leak suggests Samsung is planning to boost the camera and battery performance on the Galaxy Z Flip 5 through software.
Samsung is gearing up for its upcoming Unpacked event, where the company will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 5, among other devices.
While there aren’t many significant improvements this year, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will feature two notable upgrades.
Firstly, the cover screen will be much larger; recent leaks suggest it will be a 3.4-inch screen with up to 120 Hz refresh rate. This is a substantial improvement from the previous generation’s 1.9-inch screen.
Additionally, the Galaxy Z Flip 5 will be powered by Qualcomm’s fastest SoC, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
Let’s just wait for the Galaxy Z Flip 5
As limited as the upcoming updates are, it still was exciting to the fans. However, a recent leak brought the most disappointing news. It seems that the Z Flip 5 will retain the same dual-camera setup and the same battery size this year.
Last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 4 faced criticism for its camera quality and below-average battery life. Interestingly, a Korea-based news outlet, Chosun, reported that Samsung intends to deliver major camera and battery improvements through software.
The outlet has stated, “In response to customer complaints that the Galaxy Z Flip lags behind the Galaxy S in functionality, the latest model features clear improvements in camera and battery life matching the level of the Galaxy S23.”
“Due to space limitations, it is difficult to boost camera pixels and battery capacity, but photo clarity and battery issues were hugely improved with the help of software.”
With that said, we can’t just take these statements for granted, even if it’s from Samsung. But we are eager to see what sort of improvements the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 will bring with just software updates.
As far as we know, the company is sticking with last year’s 12MP+12MP dual rear camera system and a 3,700mAh battery.
In contrast, the Galaxy S23 packs a slightly bigger battery and a better camera system, featuring a 50 MP primary camera and 3x tele lens. So we are not sure how the Z Flip 5 will match it, especially when it comes to the zoom.
Additionally, if Samsung has indeed made software improvements, it raises the question of why they aren’t implementing them in the Galaxy S23.
