Samsung would improve these two key elements

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 would have better screen protection and smarter charging. Two notable improvements for the brand’s future flagship folding smartphone.

Last straight line before Samsung’s Unpacked 2022 event. The event will be held on August 10 and will be largely devoted to the brand’s future folding smartphones. Rumors have multiplied in recent weeks and new information has just emerged.

According to leaker Ahmed Qwaider, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will upgrade to a Gorilla Glass Victus+ coating both front and rear. An improvement over the current model which features Corning’s Gorilla Victus protective glass. Even more resistant, it must make the folding device more solid and bring it closer to the Galaxy S22 series which already has this reinforced protection. For the interior screen, Samsung would also use a new type of ultra-thin glass called “Super UTG”. The latter should make the screen more resistant to scratches.

Samsung finds a way to improve charging, without changing the charging speed

Samsung would also improve the fast charging of its future smartphone. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 should still be limited to 25W load to accompany its battery with a capacity of 4,270 mAh. However, the South Korean manufacturer intends to modify the charging curve to allow its Z Fold 4 to go from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes. For comparison, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 only reaches 33% after half an hour of charging.

These two improvements will have to be confirmed during the presentation of this smartphone. Samsung’s flagship folding device would also be entitled to improvements in the photo unit. It is rumored that the Z Fold 4 will carry a 50 megapixel main sensor (against 12 megapixels currently); and that the telephoto offer a 3x zoom (against x2).

A Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 would animate this phone which would also have a 120 Hz OLED panel with up to 1000 nits brightness. Finally, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 will run One UI 4.1.1 based on Android 12 and will receive four years of major Android updates. Fast wireless charging would also be included.

In addition to the Z Fold 4, the event will be marked by the presentation of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The flip phone will be back and will offer, among other things, many color options. On the other hand, it will probably be necessary to pay a few extra euros to afford one of the two new folding smartphones from Samsung.
