Smartphones had not seen a mind-bending design change for years until Samsung decided to tip the scales in its favour with foldables. To bring innovation meant rewriting the way we use smartphones, and that’s exactly what Samsung did in 2019.
The brand rewrote the rules of the industry when it launched the first generation of Galaxy Z Fold. And now, in 2022, we have the fourth generation of foldables from Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4. Making a huge splash in the industry ridden with slab phones, the Galaxy Fold4 & Flip4 are a breath of fresh air that’s all about premium value. With innovation at its core, Samsung foldables have reshaped the smartphone experience by transforming limitlessly.
With the next generation of foldables from Samsung, you can expect smartphones that allow you to experience cutting-edge technology, sleek design & top-of-the-line hardware, all encased in a premium foldable shell. A premium device in every sense, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 comes with 12GB RAM across the board. The base 256GB variant is priced at Rs. 1,54,999. The 512GB variant will cost Rs. 1,64,999, and the top-of-the-line 1TB variant is priced at Rs. 1,84,999. On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 costs Rs. 89,999 for the 8GB+128GB variant and Rs. 97,999 for the 8GB+256GB version.
There is a tonne of bank offers and exchange offers & bonuses which can make your new buy worth it. From the first impressions, apart from the top-of-the-line specs, there are five distinguishing features that make the devices worthwhile. These are – the camera, design, colours, battery and security features. Let’s check them independently:
Exquisite camera experience with Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4
Samsung has made a name for itself when it comes to smartphone cameras. Be it photos or videos, Samsung has been at the forefront of the camera revolution. Hence, it was expected that the Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4 would carry the same Pro-grade Camera that can stand on its own. The Galaxy Z Fold4 has three cameras on the rear – a 50MP main camera, a 12MP Ultra Wide camera and a 10MP 3x Optical Zoom Telephoto Camera. On the cover screen casing, there’s a 10MP selfie camera, and for video calls, there’s a 4MP Under Display Camera on the main screen.
On the other hand, the Galaxy Z Flip4 comes with a 12MP Ultra Wide camera paired with a 12MP main sensor, and on the front, there’s a 10MP dedicated front-facing camera.
With this iteration of foldables, Samsung has put a special focus on night photography. The shots in the dark hit differently with Samsung nightography. When put into action, the cameras on both Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4 can shoot pictures with a 23% increase in brightness. This has been possible thanks to the all-new AI ISP powered by Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
Designed to perfection: Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4
The new generation of Samsung foldables is all about the ‘flexing’ design. The Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4 are unique in the smartphone world. Not many devices fold in half or unfold into a larger display – but the Samsung foldables do. This opens a whole new world of possibilities.
The Galaxy Z Fold4 has two displays – Cover Screen (15.73cm or 6.2″) and Main Screen (19.21cm or 7.6″). The cover screen is ideal for one-handed use, and when you turn on the multitasking mode, all you need to do is open the device to get going on the Main Screen. This device is designed for professionals who’d want to get a lot done on the go.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Flip4 takes a different approach to the foldables. While the Galaxy Z Fold4 opens like a book, the Galaxy Z Flip4 carries a clamshell design that claps back. This smartphone takes the compact design to the next level. The design may be compact when folded, but the Galaxy Z Flip4 is a full-sized smartphone. The 17.03cm or 6.7″ display unfolds a beautiful view thanks to Ultra Thin Glass.
Both devices have an advanced hinge that counts for long durability. Samsung says both devices can withstand up to 200,000 folds.
Colours Galore: Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4
Apart from the fact that these smartphones can fold into half, one head-turning feature of the latest Samsung foldables is the colour options on offer. Be it the Z Fold4 or Z Flip4 – Samsung has provided us with options that look familiar yet unique to make them stand out from the competition. For starters, the Galaxy Z Fold4 comes in three distinguishable colours – Graygreen, Phantom Black & Beige. In fact, there’s a completely unique colour offering from Samsung called the Burgundy, which is available only on Samsung.com. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Z Flip4 comes in Bora Purple, Graphite, Pink Gold and Blue. And in case you fancy a completely unique look for your Z Flip4, you can get your hands on the Galaxy Z Flip4 Bespoke Edition available on Samsung.com and put your one-of-a-kind spin on a new phone with a custom colour combo.
Impressive battery with Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4
One aspect where Samsung has been very careful is providing a holistic battery experience to its users. And the wonderful battery experience can be seen on the Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4. Being the latest and greatest Samsung has to offer, the devices come with rock-solid battery life.
Galaxy Z Fold4: Designed to keep up with your routine, the Galaxy Z Fold4 comes with two massive batteries to form a total of 4400mAh (typical). With the 4nm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor on board for superfast processing, which is designed to improve battery life, this 4400mAh battery is enough to power your day. And in the moments when you have to fuel up the Fold4, there’s Fast Charging at your disposal.
Galaxy Z Flip4: What makes the Galaxy Z Flip4 a one-of-a-kind device is that it packs power into the pocket. The smartphone has an upgraded 4nm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor that works with the long-lasting 3700mAh (typical) battery to power through the hours. And in the moments when you actually need to juice up really quick, you can plug in for Super Fast Charging or bypass the cord with Fast Wireless Charging 2.0. With all that power to spare, you can even share a charge with your friend or your earbuds with Wireless PowerShare.
Knocking it out of the park with Knox on the Galaxy Z Fold4 & Galaxy Z Flip4
While sceptics may raise their doubts about security in the Android world, Samsung has been flexing its muscles when it comes to protecting user data. With one-of-a-kind Multi-layered security called Samsung Knox, you can keep your private data private. This kind of robust security through hardware and software offers defence-grade protection. Both new Galaxy foldables have this distinguishable feature.
With so many amazing features, premium feel, and robust hinge for the ultimate foldable X-factor, the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 and the Galaxy Z Flip4 are truly one of the best smartphones you can buy right now.
