Samsung today introduced the next generation of its revolutionary foldable smartphones, the Galaxy Z Flip4 and the Galaxy Z Fold4. Both feature improved design, use experience and performance. Now, in its fourth generation, the Galaxy Z series continues to break with conventions to provide new and impactful interactions that promise to improve everyday life.
” Foldable Samsung Galaxy smartphones are developed based on our opening philosophy that allows new possibilities through a complete customization both inside and outside. Created in collaboration with our world-renowned partners, these new folding devices offer unparalleled mobile experiences and respond to all the needs of our most dynamic users,” says Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business from Samsung Electronics. “Through our unwavering focus and industry leadership, the enthusiasm for folding devices continues to grow. We have successfully transformed this category that was born from a radical project to a line of devices with an ever increasing audience appreciated by millions of people around the world.”
As proof of Samsung’s dedication to its manufacturing processes, each component of these new models has been thoroughly analyzed to provide a truly optimized experience and thus ensure that each consumer has a device tailored to their needs.
The Galaxy Z Flip4 is based on the success of this iconic Samsung format, adding key features like an improved camera experience, a larger battery and numerous customization options, achieving all this in an even more compact format. In turn, the Galaxy Z Fold4 opens up new possibilities to users through the most comprehensive experience of Samsung to date with the offer of an improved format, immersive screens and multitasking features identical to those of a PC, in addition to advanced camera technology and powerful processors.

Thanks to the partnership of Samsung with Meta, FlexCam is optimized for the most popular social platforms, including Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook. Do more than ever with the Galaxy Z Flip4, take high-quality selfies directly from the outdoor screen, leveraging the main camera with the improved Quick Shot. Launch high-definition video recording in Quick Shot mode and easily switch to Flex mode to continue recording without interruptions in hands-free mode – ideal for content creators and vloggers.
Users can now take selfies in Portrait Mode and access preview in the actual proportion of the photo when using Quick Shot. With an improved camera system powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and equipped with a sensor capable of capturing 65% more luminosity, photos and videos will become more sharp and stable – day or night.
The Z Flip4 is designed to truly use free hands mode – it allows you to do much more without the need to open the phone. Make calls, reply to messages, unlock the car and even control the SmartThings Scene widget, all from the present screen on the cover.
With the Galaxy Z Flip4 you can capture and view more content or be connected longer between chargings with the 3.700mAh battery. Through the Super Fast charging now available in the Z Flip4, the equipment charges up to 50% in about 30 minutes, keeping users connected even when the battery life is over.
With the thinner hinges, straighter lines, contrasting rear glass and shiny metal frames, its design is the most expressive to date. Users can fully customize the Z Flip4 inside and outside, both on the cover and on the main screen to complement their style, using the Galaxy Themes that offers completely customizable fonts, icons and drawings. In addition, users can set their own Cover Screen with new backgrounds and watch dials in various formats such as images, GIFs and even video.
Galaxy Z Fold4
The Galaxy Z Fold4 is the result of the long-lasting innovation of the Samsung Galaxy smartphone and our most powerful smartphone ever. Z Fold4 combines Samsung’s collective mobile technology experience to create a device with added features, whether open or closed in Flex mode. In addition, it is the first device released with Android 12L, a special version of Android created by Google for experiences with large screens, including the foldable ones.
The multitasking on the Galaxy Z Fold4 has been simplified to help users do more on the move. The new taskbar provides a layout similar to that of a PC, providing quick access to the favorite and recently used applications. The Multitask became even more intuitive thanks to a new set of gestures to navigate the screen. Instantly change the entire screen applications for pop-up windows or split the screen in half to enhance more multitasking forms.
Samsung’s partnerships with Google and Microsoft take multitasking to another level. Google applications, including Chrome and Gmail now support drag-and-drop, allowing users to quickly copy and paste links, photos and more from one application to another. With Google Meet, users can now connect to more people while enjoying virtual activities together, including viewing content on YouTube or playing group on a video call. The complete Microsoft Office suite and Outlook take advantage of the folding screen by providing more on-screen information and faster ways to interact with the content.
The multitasking experience is complete with the functional S Pen, which allows you to draw or take notes on the move and features a more simplified storage through the Standing Cover.
The Galaxy Z Fold4 captures stunning photos and videos with a 50MP and 30x angle lens from Space Zoom. Includes a variety of camera modes, including the Zoom Map that makes it easy to view in an advanced zoom mode in Capture View, or the Dual Preview and the Rear Cam Selfie that have been tailored to take advantage of this unique format and that ensures greater flexibility of use. With a larger pixel size, a 23% higher light capture capability and higher processing power, users can capture sharp images even at night.
The content becomes even more immersive on the 7.6-inch main screen that features a higher brightness level compared to the previous version, an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate and a less visible Under Display Camera (UDC) through the new “scatter-type” subpixis layout. Popular applications like Facebook are optimized for the great screen experience, making content even more enjoyable. Start your preferred streaming service apps like Netflix and watch with Flex mode. For custom control-free applications, users can still control the device without disturbing the content with the new Touchpad Flex mode, offering all accuracy while pausing, rewinding and playing videos or zooming in and out of the content while the device is in Flex mode.
The games are also faster thanks to the powerful Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and the hyper-fast 5G. With a thinner, lighter and even narrower hinge, the screen allows easier interactions with a hand while using the Cover Screen.
Samsung continues to challenge the barriers of innovation to provide the level of durability that consumers target both inside and outside the equipment. The structure and hinges in Armor Aluminum along with the exclusive protection of Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the exterior screen and rear glass of the equipment, make the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 the most durable foldable ever. The durability of the main screen was also improved thanks to the optimized layer structure, helping to reduce damage caused by external impacts. In addition, both the Galaxy Z Flip4 and the Z Fold4 are equipped with IPX8 water resistance so users can be rested if caught by rain.
