Samsung Introduces Galaxy Z Flip4 Redefines Versatility

Published

on


Although the Z Fold product family is the most comprehensive in the Samsung folding segment it is undeniable as the most attractive to the general public is Z Flip, not only for a matter of price, but also for ergonomics and portability. And that’s why we look with particular interest at the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 just unveiled.

Just like for the older brother also on this “small brother” in fact we have not witnessed revolutions or special innovations. Rather, let’s talk about minor incremental updates, if not for one commendable exception: the battery. Thanks to a small magina Samsung has in fact included a 12% larger battery in a smartphone with an even larger size.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 isn’t a traditional smartphone, of course, but its particular shell-opening look hides a real flagship heart. Inside we can find the SoCQualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 octa core (1 3.18 GHz core + 3 2.7 GHz cores + 4 2 GHz cores), flanked by 8 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of internal memory.

There are two screens on board, one main and foldable and one small, ideal for quickly reading notifications, displaying the caller’s name and for many other tasks, such as starting calls, answering messages and controlling the SmartThings Scene widget. Inside we have a 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x Infinity Flex display with Full-HD+ resolution and an adaptive refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz, which allows you to increase energy efficiency. Outside is a 1.9-inch Super AMOLED panel with 260 x 512 resolution.

The dual rear camera, or perhaps we’d better say external, consists of a 12MP Dual Pixel main sensor with optical stabilization (with a 65% brighter sensor than its predecessor) and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle sensor with 123° field of view. Inside the small hole in the screen houses a 10MP camera. To shoot videos or take group selfies without using your hands, just lightly fold your smartphone to activate FlexCam, optimized for the most popular social platforms (such as Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp) thanks to the collaboration with Meta.

You can take quality selfies directly from the external display by taking advantage of the main camera and Quick Shooting feature, which is further enhanced, but also record videos in the same mode and then switch to Flex mode and continue recording hands-free without interruption. Quick Shot then allows you to self-timer and preview it in real proportions.

Another improvement over its predecessor is the 3700 mAh battery. Thanks to the 25W Ultra-Quick Charging you can reach 50% in about 30 minutes attached to the socket.

Technical Specifications:

  • Screen:
    • Internal Screen: 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex Panel, 2640 x 1080 pixels, 425 ppi, 120 Hz, Gorilla Glass Victus+
    • Outer screen: 1.9-inch panel, 512 x 260 pixels
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1, 64-bit
  • Memory: 8GB RAM, 128, 256 or 512GB of internal memory
  • Rear cameras:
    • 12MP main sensor (f/1.8, 1.8 μm, OIS)
    • 12MP ultrawide sensor (f/2.2, 123° 1.12 μm)
  • Front camera: 10MP 1.22μm, f/2.4 sensor
  • Fingerprint sensor, facial recognition, IPx8
  • 5G connection, Bluetooth, WiFi AC, NFC, USB Type C
  • Battery: 3700mAh, with 25W fast charging support and 15W wireless charging
  • Operating System: Android 12 with OneUI Customization
  • Size:
    • Closed: 84.9 x 71.9 x 17.1 mm
    • Open: 165.2 x 71.9 x 6.9 mm
  • Weight: 187 grams
  • Colors: grey, light blue, light purple and gold

For the rest, the other novelties are mainly software and concern the inclusion of new features for the external screen (such as Samsung Pay or quick responses to notifications) and as well as a way to use the phone in Flex mode (i.e. folded and resting on a plane) within Instagram for recording stories and Reels. The ability to customize the external screen has also been expanded, with support for Samsung themes and the ability to put any photo, video or GIF as a background.

Samsung to Release Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ in October: No S-Pen, Limited Market

Published

on


A new Samsung Galaxy device named Galaxy Z Fold 6 ‘Slim’ is on the list of Korean giants to introduce late this year. This device will be thinner than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. Let’s take a closer look at what the new report is saying. 

The new report says that the Korean giant is working on a new slimmer device that will be the second and thinner version of the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 6. However, the slimmer version will arrive with limited availability and potentially miss some features. This comes as Samsung faces increased competition from other brands that are offering more innovative and advanced foldable devices. 

The reason behind this new edition appears to be to stand as a strong competitor in the foldable market again. Since then, Samsung has lost its market lead. The fan community is eagerly waiting and excited about a rumored thinner, cheaper Fold 6, but Samsung seemed unsure about releasing it. Now a tipter on suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim will be named the Samsung W25 in China. This means the device is coming to China; however, it is also rumored to be arriving in Korea under the prior branding. 

He also hinted that the device will be lighter, thinner, and larger than the actual Galaxy Z Fold 6. This thinner variant will be released in October and does not support S-Pen. 

For now, the brand is actively focusing on launching the sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, at the upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event on July 10, 2024.

Published

on

By


The Samsung Galaxy S25 series, which includes three variants—the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra—is first in line to debut in early 2025. The Ultra variant of the series is expected to bring significant camera upgrades. 

Even before any official announcement, leaks and rumors have already revealed some of the camera specifications of the Galaxy S25 series. According to a new report by GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S25 will feature a 50MP primary rear camera. On the flip side, the device will use the same 12 MP front camera as its predecessors, the Galaxy S23 and the Galaxy S24. 

The 50MP primary camera and the 12MP selfie camera will also be used for the Galaxy S25+. whereas the ultra variant of the series is expected to feature a camera setup that includes a 200MP primary rear camera, a 50MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. 

Previously, it was rumored that the Galaxy S25, Galaxy S25+, and Galaxy S25 Ultra feature the Exynos 2500 chip in most markets and the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor in China and the USA. Now the new report says that similar to the Galaxy S23 series, the upcoming Galaxy S25 series will also use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 processor since Samsung foundry is facing yield-related issues in the mass production of the Exynos 2500, so Samsung will likely use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chip in all the countries. 

All three phones will likely run Android 15-based OneUI 7.1 out of the box. Samsung will promise seven years of Android OS and security patches to this series and could also bring a bunch of Galaxy AI features. Reportedly, the Galaxy S25 could have a 4,000mAh battery, the Galaxy S25+ could have a 4,900mAh battery, and the Galaxy S25 Ultra could have a 5,000mAh battery.

Samsung Electronics is collaborating with Worldwide Olympic and Paralympic to offer unique footage using the Galaxy S24 Ultra. 

Olympic enthusiasts get ready for an extreme viewing experience at the Paris 2024 Opening Ceremony on the Seine River and sailing competitions like never before. At the event, Samsung will render its advanced mobile technology and 5G connectivity to offer a closer perspective of these icons’ celebratory and competition moments. 

The Korean giant is convinced that its Galaxy smartphones help people connect with the world more deeply. Transparently, Samsung is a long-time Olympic partner, and now it is quite excited to bring the recently launched Galaxy S24 Ultra to capture unique footage for the Paris 2024 Games. This will surely add an extra layer of enhancement to the viewing experience. 

Within a month, the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games will take place outside of a stadium for the first time. Paris 2024 will see 10,500 athletes float down the Seine River in designated boats for each national delegation. The aim behind this is to be the most open and accessible opening ceremony in history. 

Samsung is adding a novelty at the event by mounting over 200 Galaxy S24 Ultra phones on the athlete boats, offering a close-up view of the athletes and the Parisian scenery. Undoubtedly, the smartphones will capture extreme premium HDR footage of the boat parade.

Weather conditions can be tough during sailing competitions, with strong winds, big waves, and scorching sun. To record premium-quality video and uninterrupted streaming, the Korean giant utilized the Galaxy S24 Ultra’s built-in OIS, boosted transmission power for the signal, and set up relay towers on boats to deliver a smooth connection. Samsung has offered more than 120,000 smartphones to athletes and staff since 1998.
