Further refinements?

Alongside the new Galaxy Z Flip4, Samsung also revealed the successor to last year's Galaxy Z Fold3. The new flagship foldable at first glance looks super similar to its predecessor. But the company said that it focused on ergonomics, productivity features and camera improvements for the fourth generation.

The phone is made from both Armor Aluminum and Gorilla Glass Victus+ protected glass which Samsung claims is now even tougher than before.

It features an inner folding 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with a 120Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 2176 x 1812. It supports HDR10+ and comes in a more squarish aspect ratio of 21.6:18 when compared to the previous generation. 

While the outer screen is a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate and a 2316 x 904 resolution. It has an aspect ratio of 23.1:9.
