Samsung has just announced its newest foldable smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 5G and Galaxy Z Flip4 5G.
We are not seeing any huge increments in terms of design and they are playing safe for this iteration. This isn’t a bad thing as the Samsung Galaxy Fold3 5G and Z Flip3 5G are the most popular foldable smartphones out there and sold millions of units as of today.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 5G now is more compact and slightly lighter. It has a wider and shorter exterior 6.2-inch HD+ 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED 2X display and the main display remains the same at a 7.6-inch QXGA+ 120Hz Dynamic AMOLED 2X display. Samsung has improved the Under Display Camera (UDC) with a less visible camera cutout on the display. Samsung S Pen is supported and will be using the same S Pen for Fold or S Pen Pro that was offered to its predecessor.
The rear camera setup has finally been updated with a more capable camera setup, a 50-megapixels f/1.8 aperture primary camera with 1.0μm pixel size and Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS), alongside a 12-megapixels ultrawide and a 10-megapixels 3x optical telephoto camera with 10x space zoom. Packed with the same 4,400 mAh battery with 25W fast charging.
As for the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G, aesthetically they are the same except for a thinner hinge that leads to a slimmer profile and lighter weight. It still kept the same 1.9-inch AMOLED Cover Display but upgraded its inner 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display to LTPO 2.0 with an adaptive refresh rate of 1Hz to 120Hz.
Additional to that, Samsung has addressed the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G’s major complaint, which is the battery life. The new iteration souped up to 3,700 mAh battery from 3,300 mAh and gets a fast 25W fast charging.
Both are powered by a 4nm process Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the Galaxy Z Fold4 5G is configured with 12GB of memory across the board and up to 1TB of internal storage. As for the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G comes with standard 8GB of memory and storage option up to 512GB.
The duo has an IPX8 water resistant and runs on Samsung One UI 4.1.1 based on Android 12. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 5G is the first device to ship with Android 12L, a special version of Android created by Google for large-screen experiences. Samsung promises 4 years of OS updates and 5 years of security updates.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 comes in four color options; Graygreen, Beige, Phantom Black, and Burgundy which look similar to the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G.
