Samsung Electronics has announced the next generation of ground-breaking foldable smartphones: Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4.

Both devices feature customisable form factors, tailored experiences, and upgraded performance.

Now in its fourth generation, Galaxy Z series continues to break from convention to deliver new, impactful interactions that enhance everyday life.

“Samsung Galaxy foldables are built on the foundation of our openness philosophy, enabling new possibilities with complete customisation 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,” the President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics, Dr TM Roh, said during a virtual launch of the new devices.

He said through the company’s unwavering focus, excitement for the foldables continued to grow.

“We have successfully transformed this category from a radical project to a mainstream device line-up enjoyed by people worldwide.”

Superior craftsmanship

As a testament to Samsung’s dedication to superior craftsmanship, he said every component in both form factors had been thoroughly analysed to deliver a truly optimised experience to ensure that every consumer had a device to fit their needs.

The Galaxy Z Flip4 builds on the success of Samsung’s iconic form factor, adding key features, including an upgraded camera experience, a larger battery and expanded customisation, while maintaining its ultra-compact design.

The Galaxy Z Fold4 opens up new possibilities for users by delivering Samsung’s most comprehensive smartphone experience to-date, offering shape-shifting design, immersive displays and personal computer (PC)-like multitasking features, in addition to advanced camera technology and powerful mobile processors.

Self-expression tool

The Galaxy Z Flip4 enhances users’ favourite features, making it the ultimate tool for self-expression.

Its compact clamshell design offers unique experiences so owners can shoot hands-free video or capture full group selfies at various angles by partially folding Z Flip4 to activate FlexCam.

The Z Fold4 is designed as a result of Samsung Galaxy’s enduring smartphone innovation and most powerful smartphone yet.

It combines Samsung’s collective mobile technology expertise to create a device with increased functionality whether opened, closed, or in flex mode.

Dr Roh stated that multitasking on Z Fold4 was easier than ever, so users could get more done on the move.

The new taskbar provides a layout similar to PC, offering access to favourite and recent applications.

Multitasking is also more intuitive, thanks to new swipe gestures. Instantly switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows or split the screen in half for more ways to multitask.

Samsung continues its barrier-defying innovation journey to deliver the level of durability consumers expect, both in and out.

Galaxy for planet

Since the launch of the Galaxy S22 series, Samsung has incorporated recycled materials not just in our packaging, but also in the hardware of the new products.

These are the first steps in our Galaxy for the Planet initiative, which includes our continued incorporation of recycled plastics and the creation of new materials in partnership with sustainability partners.

Galaxy Z Flip4 complements users’ styles with premium designs in legacy colours.
