With each new leak of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, it sounds a little less like a smartphone and more like a tablet – and a new leak is further evidence of that fact.
According to SamMobile (opens in new tab) (opens in new tab), Samsung is planning to release a version of the tablet with 1TB of storage. It’s unclear where the site got this information from, but that’s double the maximum amount of space the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has.
If a device has large amounts of storage space like this, it makes it really useful for professional-grade business users – you can store and edit a lot of video and photo files or play with game assets.
These are things you would normally do on a tablet or other big screen device – very few users would likely need a smartphone with 1TB of space.
In fact, most of the devices we see with 1TB of storage are tablets, like the iPad Pro, as it allows you to store a lot of files to work with when you are on the go and also to download a lot of apps. In that way, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 could be an alternative to iPads – and as it’s also likely to be super powerful, with a high-end chipset like the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 being likely, it’s more in line with Pro-level iPads.
Unfortunately, a 1TB Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is also likely to be too expensive – giving it another parallel to the iPad pros.
Review: A tablet by any other name
There are a few other leaked aspects of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, in addition to the ones we’ve detailed above, that make it feel like a small form factor tablet.
Firstly, it will apparently be compatible with Samsung’s S Pen stylus, and it might even come with a slot for the thing.
It is also said to have one or even two cameras under the screen, which would ensure the device’s screen-to-body ratio is higher, providing a better viewing experience.
Of course, the screen size is also an important factor in the tablet’s design – according to leaks, the main screen (when the device is unfolded) will be 7.6 inches wide, or just slightly smaller than the iPad mini (2021). ). ). That’s much bigger than any standard smartphone on the market.
like a collapsible telephonethe Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 will definitely be a smarttelephone for all intents and purposes – but it looks like it might also have some popular tablet features.
That can make it a tempting purchase for anyone who wants a phone that’s also a tablet and doesn’t want to spend on two separate devices. But we’ll have to see what the device looks like when it launches around August to be sure.
