The Galaxy Z Fold 5 is expected to launch sometime this year. Although it is likely that Samsung will upgrade a lot of things on the phone, some of the key areas might be the same as the Fold 4. At least, a new rumor suggesting not to have any expectations for a camera upgrade.
In other words, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 might not come with the impressive 200MP ISOCELL HP2 found in the Galaxy S23 Ultra. Why would Samsung skip it on its flagship folding device? The tipster claims that fitting the ISOCELL HP2 on the folding device would be “impossible.”
Galaxy Z Fold 5 Will Have the Same Primary Camera as Z Fold 4
The source of the rumor does not explain why it would be impossible for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 to have the new sensor. So, there is no clear info on whether it is for space limitations or simply to lower costs. But the folding phone might not get that much attention for not having the new ISOCELL HP2 sensor.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 debuted with the ISOCELL GN3 camera. It is a 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and 1.0-micron pixels. The sensor benefits from Dual Pixel PDAF and OIS features. And the Z Fold 5 is likely to come with the same sensor. At least, that is what the tipster is suggesting.
The ISOCELL HP2, on the other hand, is the first 200MP mobile sensor from Samsung. It features an f/1.7 aperture and 0.6-micron pixels. It also boasts Quad Phase Detection Autofocus, which enables better low-light performance. There’s Dual Vertical Gate technology that enhances color accuracy and reduces exposure.
Well, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is not going to enjoy all of these benefits. But still, it is expected to come with an upgraded waterdrop-style hinge, which is definitely something to look forward.
