Samsung has nailed down the Galaxy Z Fold design after three iterations, so it isn’t surprising to see the brand new Galaxy Z Fold 4 keeping the same design formula for the most part. However, the company has made several improvements to its overall construction that further enhance the durability and hands-on feel.

Two of the biggest upgrades come to the hinge and display. It has a slimmer and newly-designed hinge, which shaves off some of the weight on the new phone compared to its predecessors. The weight reduction goes further with a reimagined display design that uses Fiber-reinforced plastic.

On top of that, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 also features a better under-display camera with improved image processing.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip line really came into its own with its third iteration. Critics and users alike love its two-tone look and polished experience. For its successor, it is very much a case of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Like the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 also features a smaller hinge. In this case, the slimmer hinge frees up more space for a bigger battery. Samsung also hyped up its improved camera with brighter sensors and increased pixel size for better low-light photography.

There’s also a Galaxy Z Flip 4 Bespoke Edition announced which offers consumers more colour combinations on the exterior glass panels and metal frame.

Samsung Unpacked August 2022 – Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

There has been much talk about Samsung ditching the physical rotating bezel from its smartwatch line, and yes, the rumours are true indeed. The fan-favourite feature was nowhere to be found on the new Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, the latter of which replaces the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.

But what Samsung has taken away, Samsung has added in the form of bigger batteries and faster charging on both new smartwatches in response to the poor battery performance of the Galaxy Watch 4. In addition, the Galaxy Watch 5 Series is the first in the family to be equipped with sapphire crystal on its display for added toughness. The Galaxy Watch 5 comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes, whereas the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is available in a single 45mm choice.

You still get all the advanced BioActive sensors introduced in the previous models, but a new body temperature sensor is only available on the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro. The more premium (and pricier) model also has a highly-durable body with a titanium case as well as more mapping features for outdoor activities.

Samsung’s latest pair of true wireless earbuds is all about upgrades to the listening experience. Features like Hi-Fi 24-bit audio, intelligent 360 audio, and expanded active noise cancellation make the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro the most advanced TWS yet in the lineup.

But wait, there’s more! The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro has been redesigned with a new size and fit for more comfortable wearing. Besides that, an auto switch feature will seamlessly switch the audio input to the active device if the earbuds are connected to several Samsung devices (including Samsung TVs).

Coming later this year, LE Audio feature will be a first for the Galaxy Buds lineup that lets users record realistic 360 sound.
