As part of its ongoing efforts to bring bendable phones to the masses, Samsung presented the newest models of its posh foldable phone lineups on Wednesday.
The Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro were also unveiled during the company’s annual Unpacked event, along with the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4.
On August 26, the Galaxy Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 will be on sale, with prices starting at $1,800 (£1,649, AU$2,499) and $1,000 (£999, AU$1,499), respectively. These prices are identical to those of its predecessors.
Although they both have foldable designs, the looks and feels of each phone vary. Clamshell-style flip phones like the Z Flip 4 were made popular by Motorola’s Razr.
It is small, retro-chic, and aimed at internet content producers among other groups. The Z Fold 4 is Samsung’s heavier book-style folding, on the other hand.
When both are folded “closed,” it is almost twice as tall as the Z Flip 4. The Z Fold 4 unfolds into a tablet-sized internal screen, which Samsung describes as a great multitasking tool and which is aided by 12GB of RAM.
A matching set of features are included with the Z Fold 4’s greater size (and higher price). Compared to the Z Flip 2, which only had two back cameras, this model has three, including a telephoto lens.
Additionally, the Z Fold 4 manages to fit a bigger battery. They also have distinct front screens. With this edition, Samsung has improved the Z Flip 4’s tiny display that is located on the lower part of the cover. The Z Fold 4’s display is almost as large as a typical phone screen.
Samsung’s largest flex, despite the physical differences between the two new models, may have been in the software.
The Flip 4 receives the bottom-screen trackpad function in its Flex Mode, which is the feature that divides apps across the top and bottom portions of the screen when it is folded halfway, just like the Z Fold 4.
The improvements should make it simpler to control apps in Flex Mode because you will be able to use the bottom half of the screen as a touchpad to navigate the top portion of the screen.
Additionally, every model now has night portrait mode images in addition to the night photography enhancements introduced with the Galaxy S22. These modifications appear to highlight Samsung’s initiatives to persuade customers to convert to foldable phones, or at the absolute least, to spark interest in them.
