We already knew that the brand has succeeded in confirming the general public’s interest in folding smartphones. From now on, a new international recognition awaits Samsung: the CES Innovation Awards. The famous technology show in Las Vegas has just crowned the Z-Flip 4 as being one of the most advanced mobiles of the moment, alongside the Z Fold 4 which also has a hinge, but vertical.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 has a flexible AMOLED panel of 6.7 inches for a 21:9 ratio with adaptive refresh rate of up to one hundred and twenty frames per second with Full HD definition. According to those who have been able to take it in hand, this is one of the “most successful on the market“. As for the Z Fold 4, we recognize it above all as an excellent alternative to iPads but even more compact when closed.
Galaxy Watch 5: better than an Apple Watch?
Also winner of the CES Innovation Awards 2023, the Galaxy Watch 5 watch is equipped with a circular display which contrasts with that of competing wearables found at Apple. The device is available in two sizes: forty-four millimeters or forty millimeters, as desired. With software capable of tracking the sleep of the user, just like watchOS 9 also does at Cupertino.
Note that the Galaxy Watch 5 also offers a Pro edition, this time with a screen of 1.4 inch for 450 x 450 pixels is water resistance up to fifty meters deep. As another similarity with Apple’s articles, there is the possibility of recording electrocardiograms and measuring body temperature live.
Apple absent from CES
And Apple, precisely? Unsurprisingly, the firm will be absent from CES 2023. At Tim Cook, we prefer to organize its own conferences with great fanfare in California, in the Steve Jobs Theater from now on. It is in this auditorium in particular that the last Worldwide Developer Conference presented macOS Ventura and that the iPhone 14 Pro were presented to journalists.
With their A16 Bionic chip, 6 GB of RAM under the hood and one of the fastest operating systems, mobiles are often considered to be among the most efficient in the premium sector compared to those of Samsung. But the foldable format is still long overdue. This could land in Europe by next year, according to the most advanced analysts, or rather in 2024 with less risk.
