Samsung just launched the Galaxy Z Fold 4, and here is everything you need to know about its latest foldable smartphone!
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 : Evolution Of A Matured Design
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 builds upon the excellent Galaxy Z Fold 3 from last year, offering an improved version of the multitasking powerhouse.
Most of the changes are internal – a more powerful processor and an upgraded 50 MP camera. Externally, it looks very similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Hence, Samsung is focused on highlighting what you can do with its foldable design and its massive 7.6-inch Infinity Flex display, and its large 6.2-inch Cover Display.
7.6-inch Foldable Display
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 retains the Z Fold 3‘s excellent 7.6-inch Infinity Flex display, with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel that has a 120 Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 1812 x 2176 pixels.
This display has an adaptive refresh rate of 1 to 120 Hz, offering a balance between silky-smooth graphics and longer battery life.
6.2-inch Cover Display
In the front, it has the same 6.2-inch Cover Display with a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a resolution of 904 x 2316 pixels.
This Cover Display allows you to use the Galaxy Z Fold 4 like a regular candy bar device, without flipping open its large foldable display.
Performance + Storage
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is built around the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 5G mobile platform, which makes it one of the most powerful smartphones in the world.
It comes with 12 GB of memory, and internal storage options of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB. It only supports a single SIM card and an eSIM, with no microSD card tray, so there is no option to increase storage.
Samsung retained the same cover camera and under-display camera as the Z Fold 3:
- 10 MP cover camera with f/2.2 aperture
- 4 MP under display camera with f/1.8 aperture
However, they changed the triple camera system at the back, which now consists of :
- 50 MP wide angle camera, f/1.8 aperture
- 12 MP ultra-wide camera, f/2.2 aperture
- 10 MP telephoto camera, f/2.4 aperture
