According to a report by TheElec, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, which are expected to debut in 2023, could feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. The next generation chip has reportedly been codenamed SM8550, and Qualcomm is expected to unveil it at the end of 2022. The report also reveals camera specifications of the Galaxy Z Fold 5. The foldable smartphone is said to feature a triple rear camera setup with Samsung's ISOCELL GN3 50-megapixel sensor. At the front, it is said to get a 12-megapixel selfie camera.
