On August 10, Samsung introduced the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 foldable smartphones with meaningful upgrades. These devices feature more durable and improved hinges in order to last longer with folds and unfolds of consumers.
JerryRigEverything is well known among consumers who test the durability of premium smartphones in a manner that we can’t even see. After the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Jerry tested the durability of the Galaxy Z Flip 4, which is a quite stylish and fancy smartphone, but entered a tough test.
Let’s have a look at the Galaxy Z Flip 4 durability test by JerryRigEverything:
The durability test video begins with a scratch resistance test of the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s cover screen with 9 hardness-testing tools. With each increasing number, the tool becomes harder and harder so we can have a better idea of the scratch resistance.
As the Galaxy Z Flip 4 features a flexible display, consumers have to sacrifice the expectations of durability. It’s the same case with it, as the device’s UTG layer started to brick at just the 2nd level of the tool that Nelson used. Unlike the display, the body of the Flip 4 managed to survive even with harder tools.
Later on, the video shows Nelson putting some dirt on the Flip 4’s display then folded it and continued the same 4 to 5 times. Interestingly, the device didn’t stop working and also faced the flame test through a daily use lighter, which left a fire mark on the panel.
Is Samsung really offering 25W charging with Galaxy S23 Ultra?
Samsung Galaxy S23 series is coming to compete with every flagship phone of 2023. These Galaxy devices should come with improvements but what I have heard recently is unsatisfying. A few days ago, an information started appearing online that says Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will come with just 25W fast charging capability.
It is very common that before the launch of any new smartphone, it goes through several certification procedures and this happened with the upcoming Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone as well. The device recently appeared on the FCC certification site, which suggests that it will come with 25W fast charging.
On the side, its predecessor – Galaxy S22 Ultra features a 45W fast charging capacity. What do you think about it? Is it true that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will only feature 25W fast charging? Will the upcoming phone be inferior to its predecessor?
Well, let me inform you that this is not true in any case. Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is going to be a beast with its premium hardware and software functions and it can not come with degrades over the Galaxy S22 Ultra, you will only see improvements.
Samsung usually tests its phones with the same 25W charger, even if the devices have faster-charging powers. The same is the case with the Galaxy S23 Ultra. The Korean company has tested this phone with just a 25W charger on FCC. Whereas, in reality, it supports 45W fast charging.
Samsung Galaxy M04 could be priced under INR 10000 in India, launching soon!
Last month, the Samsung Galaxy M04 support page popped up on the official website to reveal its existence. Now we got to know that Samsung is planning to soon launch the entry-level Galaxy M04 smartphone in India.
91Mobiles has recently managed to gather a couple of poster images of the upcoming Galaxy M04 smartphone. These posters clearly indicated that the phone is coming soon to the market.
At the same time, a poster image also reveals that Samsung will introduce the Galaxy M04 smartphone under INR 10,000 in India. The exact price could be INR 8999, but we cannot confirm it right now.
Whereas, another teaser image confirms the 8GB RAM and Mint Green color variant. However, we believe there will be a few more color and storage variants of the phone when it goes official.
Furthermore, a report revealed that Galaxy M04 is the rebranded version of the existing Galaxy A04e smartphone. If it’s true then the device should equip a 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-V display with a 1560 × 720 pixels resolution, an octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 processor, and a 5000mAh battery.
Its dual rear camera setup should consist of a 50MP primary camera and a 2MP depth lens, whereas, the front side should have a 5MP selfie shooter. In terms of software, you could drive Android 12-based One UI 4.1 out of the box.
Samsung to bring multi-fingerprint sensing tech for enhanced security by 2025
Samsung is working on multi-fingerprint sensing tech to enhance the security of Galaxy devices and their users’ privacy. This solution is likely to make it possible for a device to read up to three fingerprints at the same time.
Dieter May, the CEO of ISORG, a French company that focuses on smartphone fingerprint sensing and other technology, was recently interviewed. In this interview, he revealed that Samsung is looking to introduce multi-fingerprint security technology by 2025.
Furthermore, Samsung announced at IMID 2022 that it is working on next-generation OLED displays. These screens will feature an all-in-one fingerprint scanning solution that will enable the device to scan three fingerprints at once.
The Korean company believes that the three fingerprints security method will be 2.5×10^9 (or 2,500,000,000) times more secure than using a single fingerprint as we do in the present period.
In the meantime, the company will also allow the entire screen to read fingerprints in order to offer more convenience to future Galaxy device users.
With OLED 2.0 and this upcoming All-in-One fingerprint scanning solution, Samsung is definitely going to set the standard for fingerprint security. At present time, we don’t know exactly when we will meet this technology. It’s expected the high-end Galaxy S series phones will introduce it in the year 2025.
