FlexCam

FlexCam is a feature you can use while the device is in Flex mode. Flex Mode supports angles between 75 degrees and 115 degrees. What does FlexCam allow you to do? Well, you can shoot hands-free video, for example, or capture selfies with a ton of people, as you can set the phone somewhere and tilt them to the appropriate angle. FlexCam is optimized for Instagram, WhatsApp, and Facebook, thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Meta.

Quick Shot

Quick Shot has been upgraded on the Galaxy Z Flip 4, says Samsung. This feature allows you to take a quick photo from the cover screen, while utilizing the phone’s main cameras. You can also start recording video in this mode, and then even switch to Flex mode seamlessly, without the need to stop video recording. You can even take selfies in Portrait Mode now, in this mode, and see previews on the cover display.

Improved camera sensor

Samsung claims that it included a 65-percent brighter camera sensor into the Galaxy Z Flip 4, compared to the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is included in the camera equation, and Samsung also says that photos and videos are “crisper and more stable – day and night”.

Slimmer hinge

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 offers a slimmer hinge than its predecessor. The edges have also been straightened, by the way. That makes the phone look even more appealing to the eye, especially when folded.
