Samsung on Thursday launched the latest Galaxy Z series in India. The fourth generation foldable smartphones, Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4 are now open for pre-book online and across retail stores in the country.
 
Galaxy Z Flip4

Galaxy Z Flip4 sports a compact clamshell design and offers unique smartphone experiences. The innovative form factor allows you to go truly hands-free and do more without even unfolding the phone, including answering calls and replying to texts.

With the FlexCam innovation, you can shoot hands-free video or capture group selfies at various angles by voice commands or just displaying the palm of your hand. You can take high-quality selfies right from the Cover Screen by leveraging the main camera with the upgraded Quick Shot mode. Start high-quality video recording in Quick Shot mode and then seamlessly switch to Flex mode to continue recording hands-free without stopping the video. With Quick Shot, users can click selfies in portrait mode and see the preview in the actual photo ratio. Additionally, with an upgraded camera equipped with a 65 per cent brighter sensor, Galaxy Z Flip4 comes with Samsung’s flagship Nightography feature ensuring that the photos and videos are crisper and more stable throughout the day or night.

Galaxy Z Flip4 comes with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor and 10 per cent higher battery capacity at 3700mAh, allowing you to capture, watch and connect longer between charges, and with Super Fast Charging, you can charge up to 50 per cent in around 30 minutes.

With a slimmer hinge, straightened edges, contrasting hazed back glass and glossy metal frames, the design is sleeker and the most refined one yet. Additionally, you can customize the cover screen clock with your AR emoji character. With Galaxy Themes on both Cover and Main Screen, users can tailor-make their Galaxy Z Flip4 inside out to complement their style with custom fonts, icons and designs.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 combines balanced and premium design, enhanced durability and powerful performance. Galaxy Z Fold4 offers increased functionality whether opened, closed or in Flex mode.

With a slimmer hinge, lighter-than-ever body and even narrower bezels, the wider screen enables easier one-handed interactions while using the Cover Screen. 

Content is even more immersive and distinctive on the 7.6-inch main screen with an improved 1Hz-120Hz adaptive refresh rate and less visible Under Display Camera (UDC).

The device allows stunning photos and videos with its flagship camera hosting a 50MP wide lens, 30X Space Zoom lens and 3x optical zoom – all significant improvements as compared to its predecessor. Galaxy Z Fold4 also gets Samsung’s flagship Nightography feature owing to a 23 per cent brighter sensor, enhanced Optical Image Stabilization and Video Digital Stabilization (OIS+VDIS) and a new AI Image Signal Processor (AI ISP). Galaxy Z Fold4 comes with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 processor that among other things improves the output of the flagship camera producing stunning images during the day or at night.  A variety of camera modes, including Capture View Mode, Dual Preview and Rear Cam Selfie are also custom-built to take advantage of the unique form factor for increased capturing flexibility.

The new taskbar provides PC-like multitasking enabling smooth switching between apps, easy access to favourite and recently used apps and the launch of multiple windows instantly from the taskbar. You can also easily switch full-screen apps to pop-up windows or split your screen in half for more ways to multitask. 

Galaxy Z Fold4 is the first device to ship with Android 12L, a special version of Android created by Google for large-screen experiences, including foldable.

Samsung’s partnerships with Google and Microsoft take multitasking to the next level. Google apps, including Chrome and Gmail now support drag-and-drop, allowing users to quickly copy and paste links or other files. With Google Meet, users can now connect with more people while enjoying virtual co-activities, including co-watching videos on YouTube or playing games together on a video call. Microsoft’s full Office suite and Outlook provide more information on the large foldable screen offering faster ways to interact with content. The useful S Pen coupled with the Flex mode enables on-the-go drawing and note-taking while also simultaneously attending back-to-back calls and meetings. The S Pen also comes with streamlined storage inside the Standing Cover with a Pen case.

With Samsung's Armor Aluminum frames and hinge cover along with exclusive Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the Cover Screen and rear glass, along with IPX8 water resistance, the latest Galaxy Z series is the brand's toughest foldable range ever. 

“At Samsung, we continuously push the boundaries of innovation to create new smartphone experiences for consumers. Our latest Galaxy Z series is a testimony to just that. Now, in its fourth generation, the Galaxy Z series offers the ultimate tools for both productivity and self-expression. Galaxy Z Fold4 is the result of Samsung’s enduring smartphone innovation. Equipped with a flagship camera, the fastest processor and an all-new design, Galaxy Z Fold4 is the most powerful smartphone yet. Galaxy Z Flip4’s compact clamshell design offers unique experiences and its FlexCam enables shooting hands-free videos. With such unparalleled mobile experiences, our latest behaviour-shifting Galaxy Z series will revolutionize the way users interact with their smartphones,” said Aditya Babbar, Senior Director and Head, of Product Marketing, Samsung India.
