Active Digital unveils all the news from the recent Samsung event which took place on 10th August 2022. Samsung’s second big event of 2022 has wrapped, and it’s brought a lot of major announcements, including the foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. Away from phones, the launch also featured the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. In this blog, we highlight all the new gadgets, which are set to be among the best foldable phones and most desired smartwatches.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
This is Samsung’s foldable successor to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3. Perhaps, unsurprisingly, the Fold 4 does look similar to last year’s model, but contains a number of upgrades. It features a 7.6-inch, 2176 x 1812 foldable inner screen and a 6.2-inch, 2316 x 904 outer display, which are the same sizes and similar resolutions to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but the chassis is slightly smaller and lighter this year. Both screens also have a 120Hz refresh rate, as they did on the previous model.
The camera has had an upgrade, which includes a 50MP primary snapper, a 10MP telephoto one with 3x optical zoom, and a 12MP ultra-wide. There’s also a 10MP front-facing camera on the outer display and a 4MP under-display one on the inner display.The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset is an upgrade too, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has a 4,400mAh battery with 25W charging, 12GB of RAM, and up to 1TB of storage.
If you are looking for a new smartphone device on a smaller budget, then you might like to consider the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which is a clamshell foldable and the successor to the Galaxy Z Flip 3. This has a 6.7-inch, 1080 x 2640 foldable AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a 1.9-inch, 260 x 512 cover display, a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, 8GB of RAM, a 3,700mAh battery, 25W charging, and up to 512GB of storage. It also has a 12MP primary camera, a 12MP ultra-wide one, and a 10MP front-facing camera. The design is similar to that of the Z Flip 3, but the battery is bigger, the chipset is faster, and the main camera has been improved, with the promise of brighter images from it.
As well as new smartphones, Samsung unveiled some smartwatches – namely the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 family. The main model comes in a choice of 40mm or 44mm sizes, with the smaller one having a 1.19-inch 396 x 396 circular screen, while the larger one has a 1.36-inch 450 x 450 display. On both models, the displays are clad in sapphire crystal glass, while the body of the watch is made from aluminum. Overall, this is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 line, and as with those wearables these new ones also have an Exynos W920 chipset, along with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. However, the batteries though are bigger this year, coming in at 284mAh and 410mAh for the smaller and larger models respectively. Consumers can also benefit from all the expected features, such GPS, a heart rate monitor, an ECG, and water resistance, along with a new temperature sensor.
If you are looking for a big upgrade for your smartwatch then the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is a good considering, It is larger at 45mm and has an impressive (by smartwatch standards), a 590mAh battery. The smartwatch is clad in titanium rather than aluminum, and comes with some advanced GPS features.
Whatever you are looking for in a new Samsung device, Samsung have arrived with some of the toughest, foldable devices yet. Perhaps it’s time to unfold your business world?
