The foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 hit the Brazilian market and other countries this week. So, to solve users’ doubts about the resistance of the devices, the manufacturer released a video showing the main tests that the devices are subjected to before leaving the factory.
- Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 arrive in Brazil with more power and resistance
- Samsung suggests that foldables will take the place of the Galaxy S line by 2025
The promo follows the two folding devices going through automated machines that exploit possible vulnerabilities. There are evaluations of the screen’s touch sensitivity, camera performance and wireless charging function.
However, the highlight of the video is for the flexibility tests of the internal screen and the hinge of the Galaxy Z Fold 4. As well, both devices have the water resistance put to the test by being immersed in a small tank.
In a press release, Samsung highlights that security is fundamental to the brand’s products. So, all the rigorous testing is intended to show that the devices withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.
As with the previous generation, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 have structures made with Armor Aluminum. According to the manufacturer, this type of aluminum alloy can be up to 10% stronger than traditional aluminum.
In relation to the Fold model, the newly launched device adopts a new hinge that uses a mechanism with interconnected teeth. In addition to making the device more compact and lightweight, the brand cites that the system has a lifespan of up to 200,000 folds.
Finally, several users have already ventured to test the IPX8 water resistance certification of Samsung’s new foldables. This means the phones support dives of up to 1.5 meters in fresh water for up to 30 minutes.
