However, Samsung has not made any changes to the size or resolution of the inner and outer screens. However, the horizontally foldable smartphone also features a 45 percent more resistant Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) from Schott on the inside and Gorilla Glass Victus+ on the outside. The primary 6.7-inch screen again has 1,080 × 2,640 pixels at 1 to 120 Hz and supports HDR10+. With 10 MP and a pixel size of 1.22 μm, the camera integrated as a punch hole in the panel has the same specifications as the Galaxy Z Flip 3 (test).
Flex modes for more apps
From the clamshell design, the manufacturer pulls various flex modes that divide the content between the two halves of the smartphone, such as the keyboard and written text, controls and videos in YouTube, or the camera section and the shutter button. Videos and group selfies can be recorded from different angles in FlexCam mode. From a cooperation with Meta, the camera apps integrated into Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp also support the various folding positions of the smartphone.
