Samsung Trademarks Two New Camera Modes for Foldable Phones

The next generation of the Galaxy Z series, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, were the most anticipated foldables of the year, unveiled at Seoul’s Galaxy event. The firm has been putting its hard efforts into bringing enhanced foldables, and it is developing two new camera systems exclusively for the newly arrived Z series. Two new trademarks filed by Samsung with the UK Intellectual Property Office indicate the business is developing new camera functionality that might be included in the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Flip 5.

This was found and reported by the source, the GalaxyClub crew and the new modes should be referred to as FlexSnap and FlexShot. The terms such as snap and shot reveal that they are related to camera specifications. The feature may come, as the features may already be there in One UI 5.1.1 but were not mentioned in Samsung’s pre-release materials. Otherwise, it will be equipped with newer updates, One UI 6 and Android 14.

FlexSnap and FlexShot will likely be connected to the Flex Hinge and Flex Mode of the foldable phones, based on Samsung’s naming approach. These may be software tools for smartphones called FlexShot and FlexSnap that allow users to take, edit, and enhance pictures while the phone is partially unfolded. No other functions have been made clear, but FlexSnap can be expected to be something like Snapchat.

Typically, Flex Shot means ground-breaking, very thick rubber sealant that adheres and caulks almost anything with ease. So we can expect this to be a camera feature relating to the screen when folded or partially folded. Whatever functions it holds, it’s almost verified that Samsung’s foldable smartphones will most likely be the only ones inheriting the feature.
