Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 camera review: is it really the same?

Every year, companies like Samsung use the promise of new hardware to provide an upgraded experience for folks willing to shell out the money for a new phone. But the Galaxy Z Fold 5 doesn’t change a single camera sensor or lens, keeping the camera hardware identical to the Z Fold 4.

Because of that, many people have been wondering how Samsung can justify another $1,800 phone when it doesn’t seem to be providing enough value for existing owners to upgrade. Well, while the sensors and lenses are identical, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 benefits from an upgraded SoC and image signal processor, which do a lot more than you might initially think. But is it enough to make you preorder a Galaxy Z Fold 5?
