Samsung has made available Galaxy Z flip 4 and Galaxy fold 4 for their fans. This development took place while Samsung hosted an Unpacked event on the 10 of August 2022 that was awaited along. The show catches all limelight with the latest features and major changes made to the functionality.
Although, Samsung subsides the current beta version in a stable form, One UI 5 public beta based on Android 13. But on the other concept foldable launched, Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 came with One UI 4.1.1 as pre-installed software. Entitled same, the latest stable One UI iteration brings new foldable-focussed features, better animations, and further system optimizations.
Here in this article, we’ll be going to have a brief commitment about the key area of improvement for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Battery life. Also, a special abandoned water drop hinge for IPX8 protection feature of the same.
Boosted battery life with new ‘Light’ performance profile:
As I was going through 9To5Google, the new generation of foldable phones has a new section for your “performance profile”. We have been provided with two options said as “Standard” and “Light.” In the former One UI version it was “Enhanced Processing” which is replaced now.
Foldable has a new performance profile that is about balancing performance and battery life. The “Standard” profile, by Samsung’s description, has the “recommended” balance of performance and battery life. Meanwhile, “Light” will prioritize “battery life and cooling efficiency over processing speed.”
A Reddit user put the two battery-boosting performance profiles under test on the foldable phones. As a result, the benchmarking app revealed a performance drop of around 20%. It offered better battery life while still offering better performance than the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
Along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, performance profiles are a nice combination for huge power savings on Samsung’s new foldable.
IPX8 protection feature in Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4:
In sense of introducing a new Samsung has abandoned the water drop hinge for the IPX8 protection feature. The IPX8 rating means the foldable is fully waterproof too and also stays powered long. Although Samsung just released the new generation of foldable, its limelight was quickly robbed.
Xiaomi has also come up with the Mix Fold 2, which is the former. Other brands also opt for the same waterdrop hinge to make folded devices thinner and lighter, but Samsung has snubbed the design for a simple but important reason that makes it authentic.
In order to allow the screen to fold flat while making the creaseless obvious, competitors have opted for drop hinges. The company found that doing so would make the Galaxy Z foldable smartphones give up its precious IPX8 rating – only simple ‘life waterproofing’.
Last but not the least, while concluding the subheading we still hope that Samsung will bring more surprises with each iteration, and continuously improve the crease and hinge durability of flexible screens, so as to bring more perfect solutions to consumers.
Therefore, It was the study that covered the subheadings of the performance Profile boost of Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 batteries, and other changes made regarding IPX8 waterproofing. For more news like you have read just now stay tuned.
