For photography, the smartphone will have a dual-camera setup at the back. The setup is said to include a 12-megapixel primary sensor, paired with another 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The device also features a 10-megapixel selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens.

It is important to note that the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip hasn’t been officially released yet. Hence, the Android software of the device should still be in its testing phase, which results in the underperforming scores, that should not be considered as definitive. We should wait for scores of actual retail models to see it hold in real-life situations.
