As always, Gadget rumors must prevail for a short duration before the speculations fade. This is the case with the new generation of the Samsung Foldables currently on our Tables. After Many Months of teasing, the South Korean Maker has finally formalized its Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4 Today.
Let us get started on developments in the two
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 improvises a little from where the Galaxy Z flip 3 left off, making it the best smartphone that money can buy right now(“For the Wealthy”). For example, it is a little less thick when folded, as the manufacturer has improved its hinge design. With this model, you also do not need to worry about water coming into contact with the device, as it is the first folding smartphone to be IPX8 certified.
During the Livestreaming event, which was also streamed on this Website earlier, Samsung says they have improved resistance by 10% and used a Gorilla Victus + protective glass on the front and rear. The external display retains the same technical characteristics. With a size of 1.9′, it consists of a Super AMOLED panel displaying 260×512 pixels.
The internal screen retains the dimensions and definition of its predecessor (6.7′, 2640×1080 pixels). It consists of a 2X Dynamic AMOLED panel (LTPO technology) with a refresh rate of between 1 and 120 Hz.
Under the Hood, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is built around a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and 8 GB of RAM accompanied by 128, 256, or 512 GB of non-expandable storage. It packs a 3700 mAh battery and benefits from Samsung-style fast charging: 25 Watts wired, 15 Watts induction.
As for the Camera department, we have a primary camera that consists of two modules: a wide-angle opening at f/1.8 (optical stabilization) and an ultra-wide-angle opening at f/2.2. Both have a 12 Mpx sensor whose photosites are 30% larger than the previous model’s.

The model marks a welcome evolution rather than a revolution. Here is why it is a little lower but more comprehensive than its predecessor (155.1 x 130.1 mm versus 158.2 x 128.1 mm), and secondly, it is less heavy (263 g versus 271 g).
Its main screen is built on a 7.6′ Dynamic Amoled 2x panel displaying 2176×1812 pixels. It has a 23.1: 9 ratio. It benefits from an adaptive refresh rate between 1 and 120 Hz depending on the application and a brightness of 1000 nits.
The external screen display technology is also the Dynamic AMOLED panel. It measures 6.2″ diagonally and displays 2316 x 904 pixels. The front camera is still hidden under the slab and becomes less visible than on Fold 3. There is also a hinge with the model, thus allowing IPX8 certification. Corning Victus + glass and Armor aluminum also increase the impact resistance by 10%.
Under the Hood of these prestigious models, we have a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC backed by 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB, depending on the model. On the software side, Android and OneUI are involved. Finally, the back camera consists of three modules: wide-angle (50 Mpxl), Ultra-wide-angle (12 Mpxl), and telephoto (10 Mpxl), the latter offering a 3x optical zoom.
