At the Unpacked 2022, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Z Fold4 alongside the Flip 4, which is the fourth generation of the mainstream foldable device. The device is a bit shorter than the last generation but packs the latest mobile money can buy (as of now).
The display, being the main highlight of the Foldables, comes in a 7.6-inch display inside, with an aspect ratio of 6:5. This display has an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz and 1000 nits of peak brightness. On the other hand, the cover display is a 6.1-inch diagonally. As expected, the UDC area has a higher pixel density to hide the camera when not in use. Due to the large display, Samsung is going with Android 12L out of the box for the device, bringing in all the good things about the Android 12L to the foldable – such as taskbar, better multi-tasking, etc. Samsung has also worked with its partners to optimize multiple apps for its foldable – such as Youtube, Disney+Hotstar, Microsoft Teams, and many more.
Out of the box, you get a 4,400mAh battery, with the support for 25W fast charging. The display also carries the S Pen support that was introduced in the Fold3. For protection from water, the foldable comes with an IPX8 rating with a maximum depth of 1.5m for 30 minutes in fresh water.
Outside, the frame is as usual built with Armour Aluminum, with Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the outside.
At the back, the Fold4 comes with a triple camera sensor, which is similar to the Galaxy S22/S22+. It comes with a 50MP main sensor with OIS, a 10MP telephoto lens with 3X optical and 30X space zoom, and a 12MP ultra-wide. On the cover display, the selfie camera is a 10MP sensor with an output of 4MP binned.
Inside, you get to see a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, along with 12GB of RAM, and storage options ranging from 256 GB to 512GB, with a 1TB option exclusive to the online store. As for the colors, you get Phantom Black, Beige, and the new Gray-green color this year. The device will be on preorder starting today, with the sale going live on August 26th. The device will have a price tag of $1799 and will come with a complimentary Samsung Care+ on the pre-order of a Fold4.
