Samsung reveals two NEW foldable Galaxy devices to rival the iPhone | The Sun

SAMSUNG is stepping up its long-held rivalry against Apple with a brand new set of super tough foldable smartphones.

The South Korean tech giant has officially unveiled a Galaxy Z Fold 4 which opens out to form a massive display the iPhone could only dream of.

Samsung has stuck to its guns with foldables, after racing ahead with the idea in 2019 only to suffer screen bending issues.

Today appears to be a different story, with a super strong build that's apparently been put under folding tests more than 200,000 times without any problems.

The firm has also revealed a brand new Flip 4, which is perfect for selfie lovers who don't want to awkwardly hold their phone for a decent photo.

Aside from a better physical build, Samsung has also managed to reduce the edges providing an even wider display.

And greater strength hasn't come at the cost of making it heavier to carry, with the weight actually coming down compared to previously.

Among the more noticeable improvements on the device itself is a new taskbar along the bottom allowing you to switch and launch apps instantly, something that's more laptop-like.

It runs on Android 12L and allows you to open several apps at once, sliding them across various parts of the screen.

Samsung has also packed more punch with its cameras, upgrading the three main lens to a whooping 12, 50, and 10 megapixel respectively, with 30x zoom.

The firm says it has added something called Nightography making images appear a lot clearer at night.

On the front, the selfie camera has been hidden under the screen out of sight.

There's also a pen if you want to get really productive.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is available in three colours: Greygreen, Beige and Phantom Black.

And it starts at £1,649.

Galaxy Z Flip 4

People who love a bit of flip phone nostalgia get a more compact device from the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

And the retro feel doesn't stop there, as you can film videos like a camcorder by holding the phone slightly closed sideways.

It too has had its cameras improved, now with two 12 megapixel lens.

The way the flip is able to sit upright also means you can take the perfect selfie from various angles without holding the phone – and eliminates those awkward shots for the person who'd usually stretch their arm to take the pic.

Better still, the feature – known as FlexCam – is optimised for the Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook so they adapt properly to the folded form factor.

Even when folded, the Flip 4 can be used to do things like make calls and reply to texts.

Super fast charging is now supported too, which Samsung claims will allow users to charge up to 50 percent in around 30 minutes.
