Samsung’s folding phones didn’t get off to the most auspicious of starts, it’s fair to say. The company was forced to postpone things after the first-generation Galaxy Fold models sent out to reviewers were found to be “problematic” and pre-orders in the US even had to be cancelled entirely, which was nothing less than disastrous. Samsung eventually fixed the problems and released the Fold, although problems remained.

Fortunately, the company kept the faith, and overcame the various issues to produce two excellent folding phones, and today the company rolls out its fourth generation Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold.

The Galaxy Z Flip4 comes with an upgraded camera experience, a larger 3,700mAh  battery, expanded customization, and PC-like multitasking features with help from a new taskbar and new swipe gestures. Super Fast Charging means it’s possible to charge the device up to 50 percent in around 30 minutes.

It is also the first phone to ship with Android 12L, a special version of Android from Google for large-screen experiences, including foldables.

Galaxy Z Fold4, meanwhile, comes with upgraded 50MP wide lens and 30x Space Zoom lens, and a brighter screen with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate.

Thanks to Armor Aluminum frames and hinge cover along with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the Cover Screen and rear glass, Samsung says the Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 are its toughest foldables ever.

Both devices are IPX8 water resistant.

Samsung Galaxy foldables are built on the foundation of our openness philosophy, enabling new possibilities with complete customization both inside and out. Created in collaboration with our world-class partners, the next foldable devices offer unparalleled mobile experiences that meet the needs of our most dynamic users,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “Through our unwavering focus and industry leadership, excitement for the foldables continues to grow. We’ve successfully transformed this category from a radical project to a mainstream device lineup enjoyed by millions worldwide.”
