How does Samsung’s folding phone work?

by FNTCASE Official 23 Feb 2023 0 Comments
Samsung’s folding phones are designed for the future, with you in mind. The folding screen phones are made using highly-engineered, extra thin Corning Gorilla Victus glass that is ultra flexible, allowing you to fold and unfold your phone effortlessly.

At the centre of each phone’s innovative design is a finely crafted, bespoke spine or hinge, that allows you to open and close the phone. Thanks to the small gap between the two halves of the phone, when you close your folding phone shut, the two sides of glass don’t touch, preventing friction between the two halves. The hinge can also be used to hold your Galaxy Z Fold4 or Galaxy Z Flip4 partially open at varying angles - perfect for taking selfies or recording vlogs.

What are Samsung folding screens made of?

Samsung's latest foldable Galaxy Z series phones are made from ultra-thin folding glass technology built from layers of highly innovative materials. The exceptional Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®+ is the toughest Gorilla® glass yet, providing extraordinary damage resistance, incredible flexibility, and wafer-thin design. There’s no need to worry about scratches, bumps and knocks, as in lab tests Gorilla® Glass Victus® survived drops onto hard, rough surfaces from up to 2 metres.

On the back of your folding phone, you’ll find Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 - a highly durable glass built for the future. Designed to withstand drops from a height of 1.6m and boasting 2x improvement in scratch resistance compared with industry standard aluminosilicate.

Are Samsung’s folding phones water resistant?

Almost all newer Samsung phones have an Ingress Protection (IP) rating (a universally accepted measurement for liquid resistance) including the epic Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4: the latest water resistant foldable smartphones. You can catch up on your favourite show in the bath panic-free as the IPX8 water resistance rating makes sure your phone is protected in water up to 1.5m deep for 30 minutes*. Wet phone? No sweat. It’s protected.


Why should I buy a folding phone?

Future-proofed design

Samsung’s folding phones offer a new era of design that combines the best of smartphones and tablets - perfect for when you’re working or creating on the go. The compact design of the Galaxy Z Fold4 means you’ve got a flexible tablet that can slip into your pocket. Watch videos, play games, Snapchat friends and edit documents all from the palm of your hand.

Breathtaking screen size

With Samsung’s foldable screens you can double your screen size, giving you space to do more. Use your fold phone for multitasking, watching videos, replying to work emails and messaging friends all at the same time!

What’s more, with an amazing Multi Window feature supported in both Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4, you can make the most of the big screen by opening up multiple app windows at the same time. This makes dropping photos into emails or moving a graph from one Microsoft app to another more seamless than ever.

Incredible hardware
Thanks to the increased space behind two screens, you’ll find an incredible amount of hardware in Samsung Galaxy Z phones - large dual batteries with a capacity of 4,400mAh*, super-fast intelligent processor, 8-12GB of RAM and enough memory to store all your selfies, vlogs and downloads.
