Proof that Galaxy Z Fold4 5G and Galaxy Z Flip4 5G are stronger and tougher


Samsung really understands that the issue of durability or power is always the main question when it comes to folding phones. That is why, when launching the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G and Galaxy Z Fold4 5G duo, Samsung made sure that the durability and toughness of the two foldable phones were strong and safe for everyday use.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G and Galaxy Z Fold4 5G come with the same revolutionary design as the previous series, but with a number of improvements. One of them in terms of durability or endurance.

Yes, in the early days of its appearance, the issue of durability became the main question for folding phones. In this case, how strong he is able to survive must be opened and closed repeatedly. 1000 times? 5000? In essence, this is of course a more concern for Samsung.

Evidently, this latest generation of the Galaxy Z family has been tested and certified to fold up to 200,000 times. This is equal to 100 times every day for five years. One of the keys to the unmatched durability of these two Samsung folding phones lies in the screen that uses Ultra Thin Glass (UTG).

Ultra Thin Glass itself is an exclusive material that can be folded hundreds of thousands of times while maintaining its durability and strength. UTG can be mass produced to fit a variety of display shapes. UTG has a thickness of 30 microns and is injected with a special material that allows the device to be folded.

Samsung’s Ultra Thin Glass also enables the Galaxy Z Flip4’s 6.7-inch Infinity Flex Display, which is an immersive Dynamic AMOLED display. So it’s a cinematic look that’s comfortable in the eyes of the user with reduced blue light.

And because of the foldable screen, when we’re not using the main screen, we can fold it in half, making it a very compact smartphone that fits in a pocket.

In addition to Ultra Thin Glass, the use of Armor Aluminum and Gorilla Glass Victus + is also another reason why these two Samsung folding phones are at the forefront of durability.

Just so you know, this Aluminum Armor is called stronger than ordinary aluminum because it is made by mixing aluminum and other metal elements. Meanwhile, Gorilla Glass Victus+ is a version of Gorilla Glass Victus that is stronger, more scratch resistant, and more durable.

Samsung uses Aluminum Armor for the body frame and hinge protector, while Gorilla Glass Victus + protects the Cover Screen and back body. That way, both the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G and Z Fold4 5G are more resistant to scratches and stronger when dropped.

Both the Galaxy Z Flip4 5G and Z Fold4 5G have the same resistance when dealing with water, with an IPX8 certification pocket. With this certification, the device is not only safe in the event of water spills, it is also resistant to getting wet due to rain, and splashing.

Samsung says, IPX8 certification makes the two folding phones survive even if they are “submerged” in water with a depth of 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. This also makes these two Samsung flagships the only devices in the foldable phone line to get IPX8 water resistance certification to provide the best durability every time they are used.

In order not to say it’s just “tasting” or claiming origin, Samsung released a video titled “Behind the Foldable in Our Pockets”, which shows the assembly and testing process of its newest foldable phone duo, the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy Z Flip4.

In addition to the assembly process, in the 2-minute video, Samsung also shows off a series of tests on the two newest foldable phones. The test was carried out to ensure the durability and strength of the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Galaxy Z Fold4 are strong and safe when used daily.

To test the phone can withstand being folded many times, Samsung did the Folding Test. In this test, Samsung “tortured” the two folding phones by folding and closing the device repeatedly with a predetermined tool and intensity.

As a result, Samsung claims that the Z Fold4 and Z Flip4 remain strong and can be opened and closed as much as 200,000 times, or the equivalent of five years if the user folds the two devices 100 times in one day.

In addition to the Folding Test, Samsung also conducted a “Water Resistance Test” to test how tough the Z Fold4 and Flip4 can withstand water pressure. Samsung used two scenarios in this test.

The first scenario is to spray water on both devices from all directions. And the second scenario is by submerging the two folding phones into a water tank.

As a result, the two folding phones are still tough and still operate normally, even if they are splashed or submerged in water. Samsung says that the two foldable phones have an IP rating of IPX8, which means that the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Flip4 are able to withstand fresh water pressure or fresh water at a depth of more than 1.5 meters for a maximum duration of 30 minutes.

You can see the assembly process and durability testing of the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Flip4 in the video below:

Samsung introduced the latest generation of its two foldable phones – the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 5G and Z Fold4 5G at an event titled Galaxy Unpacked in New York, United States on August 10 last. Both bring big changes not only in terms of durability but also screen, camera and color choices.
