Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Zoom

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has two zoom levels. The first is the optical zoom, which is a 3x. A 3x optical zoom isn’t bad for a smartphone camera but there are smartphones out there with better optical zooms.

But the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 also boasts a 30x “Space Zoom.” While the marketing name for this is a bit cringy, users should love the 30x capabilities.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Front Camera Vs Cover Camera

One of the unique things about the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is that it has two front cameras. Of course, most smartphones just have a single front camera. So why does the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 have two front cameras?

It comes down to the design of the phone. Samsung wants a front camera to be accessible to the user no matter how they are using the phone: folded closed or folded open. If there were only one front camera, depending on if your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 was folded open or closed, you wouldn’t have a camera in the other folder position.

Thus the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 has two front cameras so one is always accessible no matter how the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is folded.

The 10MP Cover Camera on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the one that faces the user when the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is folded closed.

The 4MP Under Display Camera on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the one that faces the user when the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is folded open like a book.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: Video

Of course, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 is also capable of recording videos, too. Here are the official video specs from Samsung:

  • 8K video recording at 24 fps (4320 x 7680)
  • 4K UHD video recording at 30 and 60 fps (3840 x 2160)
  • 1080p FHD video recording at 30 and 60 fps (1920 x 1080)
  • 720p HD video recording at 30 fps (1280 x 720)
