Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 Unboxing and First Impressions
Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4
Starting with the unboxing, the box is black and pretty much the same dimensions as its predecessor, so you know which accessory isn’t making a comeback. You also have the word “Fold” written on the top instead of “Z” like last year. Inside the box, you will find the following items:
- USB-C to USB-C cable
- User guide
- Warranty card
- SIM Ejector tool
- The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 itself
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 First Impressions
At first glance, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 looks the same as its predecessor but there are more changes than what you might have expected. For starters, the cover display has become very slight wider, making it easier to use as it’s not as narrow as before. Consequently, the main display has also become slightly bigger, with both displays having lesser bezels.
It’s powered by the new Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC with 12GB RAM and up to 1TB UFS 3.1 storage, with no option to expand memory via microSD. For our review unit, it’s the 256GB variant. It’s all being juiced up by a 4,400mAh battery, which remains unchanged from its predecessor. For fast charging, it only does 25W wired and 15W wireless charging, which isn’t that bad considering the capacity.
The triple-camera system has also seen a significant upgrade, now matching up with the Galaxy S22 Plus as opposed to being a step down due to the size and space available for the device. Apart from the brighter main display and a new UI improved for multitasking with Android 12L, all else appears to be the same as the Z Fold3.
