Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5

The new Galaxy Z Fold 5 has the same 50-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultrawide and 10-megapixel telephoto as the Z Fold 4. But at this point, camera hardware upgrades are only half of the equation -- new processors and CPUs may improve images too. The Z Fold 5 has a new image sensor processor (ISP) that in my testing didn't really change the image quality.
