Samsung Electronics announced today that it is the first company to bring GDDR6 memory chips…
Caviar is well known for customizing top-of-the-range smartphones with gold, but this time it announced the launch of a Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 that debuts its new collection of devices Heralds of the Galaxy (Heralds of the Galaxy), and this name has been chosen meticulously, since they have been used meteorite chunks to form your new chassis.
In this way we find a very exclusive Galaxy Z Fold4, since we are talking about a device limited to 29 units employing a new chassis manufactured in cowhide. The Caviar logo employs 24 karat goldwe have some gold plated elements of the same quality (24K), and if that wasn’t enough, meteor particles extracted from the Seymchan, Muonionalusta and Canyon Diablo meteorites. According to the company, each fragment is unique, which means that each of the 24 available copies has an exclusive design.
Gold, meteorites, skin and 29 units available. The price of exclusivity
If we combine all this, we are talking about the most basic version of this device, with 256 GB of capacity, costing $11,030 (11,000 euros), while the 512 GB variant is more expensive to $11,460 (11,410 euros).
If you have a little budget, you can aspire to the variant with titanium accents instead of gold plated, which translates into a respective price of $10,680 (10,635 euros) and $11,110 (11,160 euros).
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 the most advanced folding smartphone on the market
Focusing now on the mobile device, we are dealing with a smartphone that offers a screen of 6.2 inches to a resolution of 2316 x 904 pixels @ 120Hz when folded, while unfolded it reaches a size of 7.6 inches with a resolution of 2176 x 1812 pixels @ 120Hz with a brightness of 1200 nits.
The exterior screen is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus+ laminate, and both use a Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel.
Screens come to life through the Qualcomm SoC Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 @ 4nm accompanied by 12GB of LPPDR5 RAM that can be combined with 256, 512 and 1024 GB of internal storage UFS 3.1. It ends up standing out in its photographic section, with a triple rear camera configuration in the form of an angle, ultra wide angle and telephoto lens (3x optical zoom) of 50, 12 and 10 megapixels respectively. As a selfie, 10 MP or 4 MP camera hidden under the screen when unfolding it.
The specifications are completed with a chassis IPX8 waterproof, Sual SIM + eSIM support, WiFI 6E + Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, NFC, fingerprint reader on one side, and a battery of 4400mAh capacity with “fast” charge of 25W (from 0 to 50% in 30 minutes) with 15W wireless charging.
Without the Caviar seal, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 has reached the market at a price of €1,799 (256GB), €1,919 (512GB), and €2,159 for the top-of-the-range model (1 TB), which continues to make it clear that access to folding devices entails a huge extra cost.
