Full-size comparison: Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 vs predecessors

Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 vs predecessors

Samsung made official this Wednesday morning (10) its new generation of foldables at the Galaxy Unpacked event, a conference that also presented other branded devices. The new family of cell phones has the models Galaxy Z Fold 4 5G and Galaxy Z Flip 4 5G, which arrive as successors to the devices announced last year by the South Korean.

The new models bring important improvements in the internal hardware and a few visual changes in the construction of smartphones compared to their predecessors. Although the design was not the focus, the manufacturer shows that it has fulfilled community requests by adopting the latest version of Qualcomm’s chipset, the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1.

The Fold version has the characteristic of opening in horizontal format, turning almost into a tablet when the entire useful area is used. The Galaxy Flip, on the other hand, has the hinge positioned to extend the screen vertically.

TudoCelular prepared a comparison that details all the changes in the new generation against the predecessor models. Check it out below!

screen and design.

Starting with the Galaxy Z Fold 4, this model brings very few aesthetic changes, keeping the 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel with a resolution of 2176 x 1812 pixels that is also present in its predecessor. In addition to the size and resolution, the adaptive refresh rate also remains unchanged, delivering a frequency of up to 120 Hz.

The external display also remained unchanged, continuing with the 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X technology and housing the 4 MP front camera under Gorilla Glass. The innovation of this generation lies in the compact size and reduced weight of the Galaxy Fold 4 compared to the 2021 model, adopting the aspect ratio of 23:9 instead of 24.5:9.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is also more compact compared to its predecessor, maintaining the thickness and screen components of its big brother, such as the 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with FHD+ resolution and adaptive refresh rate. It is capable of reaching up to 120 Hz and has compatibility with HDR10+ mode.

This version also comes with a hole for the front camera. That remains the same: 10 MP with an f/2.4 aperture. At the rear, the secondary screen remains in Super AMOLED with 1.9 inches, in addition to the resolution of 260 x 512 pixels. Both are IPX8 certified, which ensures water and dust resistance.

Hardware

Both the Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 use Qualcomm’s latest mobile platform, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus — up to 3.2GHz octa-core with TSMC’s 4nm lithography — with the Adreno 730 graphics card. This chipset brings improvements compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, a variant that equips the Galaxy S22 line.

Although the processor of both is identical, only the Fold version has 12 GB of RAM, while the smaller one has only 8 GB dedicated to background processes; in both, the internal storage is limited to 512 GB (UFS 3.1), with the possibility of expansion with a microSD card.

The evolution of the chipset is certainly the main bet of the Asian giant with its new foldable. This feature was also highlighted by the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3, powered by the Snapdragon 888 SoC with the Adreno 660 GPU and the same amount of RAM and ROM memory.

In addition, it should be noted that the battery of the Fold 4 has not been improved and continues to deliver 4,400 mAh of capacity with 25W charging, while the Z Flip 4 received an increase of 400 mAh in total capacity, with 3,700 mAh and the same power load, and should provide an increase in autonomy.

Cameras

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 also has improvements in the rear sensors of cameras, replacing the 12 MP primary sensor of the previous generation with one with 50 MP of resolution, the same that equips the Galaxy S22, bringing optical image stabilization to photos and videos.

The ultrawide lens remains at 12 MP, while the telephoto lens has been downgraded from 12 MP to 10 MP, increasing the optical zoom to 3x, a feature capable of capturing distant objects without significant loss in quality. The camera system that equips the Z Fold 3 consists of three 12 MP sensors.

Unlike the new Fold, the Flip 4, unfortunately, did not have its hardware updated and continues with two sensors with 12 MP each, but Samsung promises better photographs from post-processing improvements.
