Samsung has now set a shipment target for the folding mobile phone to be released next year, but it is significantly lower than the 15 million units of the previous generation (Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4). The Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 released in the second half of next year are expected to ship 10 million units. Among them, the Z Fold 5 is targeted to ship 2 million units, and the Z Flip 5 is targeted to ship 8 million units.
It is understood that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 (codenamed SM8550). The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the next-generation chip that Qualcomm expects to launch at the end of the year. Based on TSMC’s 4nm process, the energy efficiency ratio should be better than that of the Snapdragon 8+.
In terms of imaging, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 will have three rear cameras, including Samsung’s ISOCELL GN3 sensor, and a 12-megapixel front camera. Among them, the GN3 is a 50-megapixel image sensor, 1/1.57 inches, which is much higher than the 12-megapixel of the previous generation.
