Samsung will bet heavily on its next folding smartphones to maintain its leadership in this segment.

And one of the bets will be on the optics of the new Galaxy Z Fold4 that will arrive with a better telephoto sensor than the top of the range Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The segment of folding smartphones promises to be on fire with all the news that are on the way. More and more brands are launching models of this type, and there is also a growing trend for new terminals to be more powerful.

Samsung maintains the leadership of this market and, according to all indications, is not willing to give up in this domain. Exactly to maintain this dominance, the South Korean giant is making significant improvements to its upcoming foldable Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4.

Now it has been announced that specifically this latest terminal will have a significant improvement in its rear camera configuration compared to the previous model.

According to lekaer Ice Universe, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will feature a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 12-megapixel wide-angle, and even a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor and 3x optical zoom.

This is a significant improvement over the Galaxy Z Fold3, which has a main sensor, an ultrawide sensor and a telephoto sensor, all with a resolution of 12 megapixels.

On the other hand, if this information is confirmed, the Galaxy Z Fold4 will also have a telephoto sensor superior to the one integrated in Samsung’s flagship, the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Remember that the model is equipped with a 10-megapixel resolution telephoto sensor, although it provides the same 3x optical zoom.

This new information also contradicts previous rumors that the Galaxy Z Fold4 would have the same 108-megapixel primary sensor as the S22 Ultra. One thing is for sure: Samsung is equipping the new foldable with advanced specifications so that it can conquer the market and the brand can maintain its leadership.

Some rumors have already started teasing some of the specs we can expect to see on the Galaxy Z Fold4.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is then expected to arrive equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus processor, manufactured using the 4nm process. On the other hand, it should come with a unique hinge design that will make it slimmer than the previous model.

Also, the integrated battery may differ from its predecessor. Previous rumors have shown that Samsung could use batteries from the company Amperex Technology Limited (ATL) to make the new Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 available at a more affordable final cost.

For the rest, the Galaxy Z Fold4 is expected to be launched in August this year, along with two other stars of the company: the Galaxy Z Flip4 and the Galaxy Watch 5, which this time will have a Pro version.
