Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 : How Good Is Its Main Camera?

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 : How Good Is Its Main Camera?

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 only comes with a 12 MP main camera, but you will be really surprised at how good its camera really is!

Learn more about its 12 MP Sony IMX555 main camera, and take a look at the photo samples we took!

 

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 : Sony IMX555 Main Camera

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with the same 12 MP main camera as the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20 FE.

Built around the Sony IMX555 sensor, it has a wide f/1.8 aperture. Let’s take a look at how good this camera really is.

The Sony IMX555 is a 12.2 MP CMOS sensor, with a square pixel array of 4032 x 3024 pixels.

This is a Dual Pixel sensor, which means it uses dual photodiodes in every pixel for faster and more accurate phase-detection autofocus.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 supports the new HEIC file format, so each 12 MP picture is only about 2-3 MB in size – about half of the usual JPEG file format.

That basically means you can store twice as many photos as you would with an older smartphone.

 

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 : How Good Is Its Camera?

Even though we are under a CMCO lockdown, we had the opportunity to test the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2’s main camera out.

Here are eight high-resolution Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 photo samples for you to check out.

For faster loading, we reduced the resolution, but they are otherwise unedited.

We are glad that Samsung did not skimp on the main camera, using the same Sony IMX555 sensor and wide f/1.8 aperture as the Galaxy S20.

The detail and colour rendition of this camera is really good, with fast autofocus, courtesy of its Dual Pixel capability.

The wide f/1.8 aperture is great for bokeh and low-light photography, but it introduces a very narrow depth of field.

So be very careful when you take close-up shots, as you can end up with the shot focused on the wrong subject.

To be sure, tap on the subject you want, so the Galaxy Z Fold 2 “knows” what you want to focus on.

If you can keep that in mind, you will end up with very nice shots from the Galaxy Z Fold 2!

 

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 : Price + Availability

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is offered in two colour options – Mystic Brown and Mystic Black.

It is available globally from September 2020 onwards, at these recommended retail prices :

  • Malaysia : RM 7,999 (25 September 2020)

Xiaomi Mi 10T : Cheaper 64MP Variant Of Mi 10T Pro!

The Mi 10T is a curious oddity. It is essentially a cheaper variant of the new Mi 10T Pro smartphone, with a 64 MP camera as the main differentiating feature!

Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Mobile Platform

Like the Mi 10T Pro and the Mi 10, the Mi 10T is built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, delivering flagship-class performance with eight Kryo 585 cores, and a Adreno 650 GPU.

Fabricated on the 7 nm process technology, it is also more power-efficient, running cooler and offering a longer battery life.

In the Mi 10T, it is paired with the X55 modem for 5G connectivity. It also supports 5G MultiLink, allowing it to connect simultaneously to 2.4G Wi-Fi, 5G Wi-Fi and mobile data.

64 MP Camera with 8K Video Recording

The Mi 10T comes with a triple-camera system, which is comprised of :

  • a 64 MP main camera that supports 4-in-1 SuperPixel low-light capability, and 8K video recording,
  • a 13 MP ultra-wide camera with f/2.4 aperture,
  • a 5 MP macro camera with f/2.4 aperture

Larger Battery With 33W Charging

The Mi 10T has a 5,000 mAh battery – just 5% larger than the Mi 10.

It supports 33W wired charging – slightly faster than the Mi 10, but drops the wireless charging capability.
