Samsung has just presented the folding mobile Galaxy Z Flip4 at the event ‘unpackaged’ that we are offering you live. As expected, it is a enhanced evolution from a series that stands out for a “shell” type design that became popular years ago, but that the South Korean firm recovered (quite rightly) for its most compact folding mobile.
The key of Galaxy ZFlip4 remains “a glass that bends”as defined by the manufacturer of the ultra-thin glass cover that it uses to protect its main screen, an impressive flexible AMOLED that repeats size at 6.7 inches, resolution and refresh rate of 120 Hz. The outer screen is also identical, a 1.9-inch Super AMOLED with 260 x 512 pixels.
Sections such as resistance and robustness are very important in folding devices and Samsung has been improving them since the original version. Now, it has improved the hinge again, reduced in size to achieve a smaller footprint when folded. With the slimmer hinge, straighter edges and the contrast of the lacquered glass on the rear panel with the shiny metal frames, its design is the most refined of the series seen so far.
and also added IPX8 water resistance with immersion up to 1.5 meters in fresh water for up to 30 minutes. It is the first folding with this degree of resistance.
The internal hardware will be updated with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus SoC and will offer configurations with up to 512 GB of capacity, with 8 GB of RAM.
To highlight the increase in battery that goes from 3,330 mAh at 3,700mAh with fast charging it can recharge to 50% charge in about 30 minutes. In terms of connectivity, it has improved with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2in addition to 5G and LTE.
