The big announcement of Samsung’s Unpacked event this day was the unveiling of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the flagship of its folding smartphone line. And like its sister model, the improvements are small but significant.
The new Galaxy Z Fold 4 maintains the 2 120Hz OLED screens. However, the outer screen is now slightly better: although it still measures 6.2″, the bezels are 3mm thinner, which means that there is now more space to view the content and thus it feels less narrow. On the other hand, the main/interior screen also maintains the 7.6″, but is 45% more durable, thanks to a layer of ultra-thin glass. In addition, the camera under the 4MP display is now more subtle, so it is less annoying when viewing content.
On the other hand, the rear camera received a great improvement, since the main sensor goes from 12 to 50MP and also has an f / 1.8 aperture and optical stabilization., which puts it on a par with the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus. In addition, the telephoto sensor goes from 2x to 3x zoom and there is also the 30x Spatial Zoom function, so faraway objects can now be seen much better, either with analog or digital zoom.
As for the rest of the specifications, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 includes the new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset worthy of any flagship of the year, along with a monstrous 12GB of RAM and the possibility of having internal storage ranging from 256GB to 1TB.
Finally, it is important to mention that the main screen of the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is already compatible with the S-Pen stylus (sold separately), so anyone who wants an experience similar to that of the Note, will already be able to have it. Unfortunately, the stylus is not compatible with the external screen and the cell phone does not include the hole to store the nib either.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 can start pre-ordering from today from $1799 USD, while it will begin to be distributed on August 26. The folding will be available in gray-green, beige and phantom black colors, plus a burgundy color exclusive to the Samsung Store.
