Inside the Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4
Move over old smartphones, there’s a new kid on the block and it has tech geeks in a frenzy. The Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4 are making waves in a big way, and if you’re wondering what all the talk is about, you’ve come to the right place. According to a recent study, the foldable smartphone market will grow 73% this year from 9 million units to 16 million units YoY with expectations to keep rising into 2023.
What is the Difference Between the Fold 4 and Flip 4 and Which is Better? This answer really comes down to the device size, not performance. The Flip 4 is quite a bit smaller and lighter than the Fold 4 and offers the standard smartphone experience when unfolded. Its main attribute is the ability to fold in half, which means we finally have a phone that fits in our purses and jean pockets (once again)– legendary!
Here are some other crowd-pleasing attributes of the new Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 and Flip 4:
- Survives Drips and Drops: Durability is a big differentiator when it’s time to buy a new smartphone, because life’s adventures have no time for worrying about a smartphone slip or fall. Galaxy’s Flip 4 and Fold 4 are the world’s first water-resistant foldable smartphones. This is historic, and the first flip phone holders of the 1990s are literally flipping out. Both phones can hang out in up to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes without being affected. And rough days are certainly no match for the exclusive Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®+ screen. Oh, and not to mention the fact that the folding part of these new devices are reinforced with a sturdy aluminum frame that protects the folds from damage. Durability was clearly at the front of Samsung designers’ minds when creating this line of smartphones.
- Galaxy’s Best Camera Yet: Who doesn’t want clearer photos and videos? With 1 billion monthly active users around the world on Tik Tok, the need for fast, 4k video is bigger than ever. One reason the Flip has become so popular is due to its ability to “stand on its own,” so users can snap those video shots on the go without having to rely on a tripod. The Fold 4 is just as strong with photo and video quality. So, the only significant difference between the two is the Flip’s impressive agility. With 50MP Wide Angle, a 10MP 3X Optical Zoom Telephoto lens, and superior visibility in dark atmospheres, there’s much to celebrate about this new Galaxy release.
- Upgraded Battery Power: Battery life was one of the previous Galaxy phones’ biggest weaknesses, and with 41% of U.S. smartphone users saying longer battery life is the design feature they want most, the technical team at Samsung was clearly listening. The new 4 phones do have a larger capacity battery than their predecessors– now lasting about 31 hours between charges with the screen used for under five hours– but keep in mind, they will require daily charging. Regardless, users are getting an extra three hours of usage compared to the previous models with all the updated design features.
- Useful Cover Screen: This feature is exclusive to the Flip 4, but now you never have to miss a notification with your own personalized cover screen. It’s one of the biggest bonuses of the flip devices. With a customizable 1.9-inch cover screen, you get yet another fun canvas to play with. Also, you can get creative and change it up using videos and photos from your library or your AR emoji. Personalization is key with millennials, as studies increasingly show they value experiences over ‘stuff.’ This cover screen allows for maximum personalization by allowing the user to easily update it to match their mood, the weather or even their outfits!
