Samsung will officially start shipping the Galaxy Z Fold 4 (and the Galaxy Z Flip 4) next Friday or in a week. The price of the phone starts at $1,799, which makes it an expensive device that you want to protect at all costs. With that in mind, Samsung offers optional protection for the 6.2-inch Cover Screen, which it calls Front Protection Film. Available as a separate purchase, the accessory also comes with an applicator that allows you to apply the film “without leaving any creases or dust underneath”.
So how do you apply the screensaver just right? Samsung has released a 1-minute, 23-second video that walks you through the steps. Watching the video makes this important task much easier as you can see where to place the applicator and how to use the dust remover to remove the dust from the screen. And after you place the protective film on the screen, the included eraser is used to flatten the film and remove a protective layer designed to be peeled off the protective layer.
The Dynamic AMOLED Cover Display, as we mentioned above, weighs 6.2 inches and has a refresh rate of 120Hz. This means that the screen will redraw itself 120 times per second. The resolution is 904 x 2316 with an aspect ratio of 23.1:9. The external display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+. The internal Dynamic AMOLED screen the size of a tablet is 7.6 inches with a resolution of 1812 x 2176 and the maximum brightness is 1200 nits. It also features a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
Keep in mind that the inward-folding design of the Galaxy Fold 4 means that when the device is closed, the internal display has some protection. We recommend that you buy a protective case that will protect your expensive foldable phone from the inevitable drops. While the internal display offers the aforementioned protection when the device is closed, that is not the case for the Cover Display which is always vulnerable.
While you haven’t received your Galaxy Z Fold 4 yet, you may want to bookmark this article so it’s handy for the day your new foldable phone arrives with the Front Protection Film you also ordered.
