Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 are now official. Both devices equip some great hardware including an impressively improved camera. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 still do not support 4K 60 fps ultrawide video recording.
Last year, the Korean tech launched the Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphone with the ability to shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second from all five of its cameras, front and back. This is not only great for capturing slow-motion shots but it also means that you don’t need to worry about mixing and matching clips at different frame rates.
Meanwhile, the other devices of the series – Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ did not support 4K 60 fps ultrawide video recording at the time of launch. However, the company later provided a software update that added this feature.
It looks like the same is the case for the new foldable. Samsung has not offered this feature out of the box, however, it is possible that the company will not provide such an important camera feature to its flagship phone users.
Samsung might provide a software update to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 in the future to add the 4K 60 fps ultrawide video recording feature. Currently, the new devices only support 4K 60 fps recording on the main and zoom rear cameras.
The implementation of 4K 60 fps on your foldable’s ultrawide video mode will let your shoot extra-sharp videos. Its only iniquity is that you can’t switch lenses while filming. You’ll need to stop your current clip and create a new one at a different focal length.

Exynos is not rebranding but Dream Chip indeed exists, Samsung states
