Every year, Samsung’s foldable phones gain more popularity. In the first three quarters of 2022, the company shipped 16 million foldable smartphones globally, an increase of 73% year-over-year. Consumers and businesses are purchasing more foldable smartphones than ever before. And while the Galaxy Z Fold 4 appears to be a favorite among business users, the Galaxy Z Flip 4 has just been named Belgium’s “Product of the Year.”
With the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung has become the first electronics manufacturer to win this award. In fact, in Belgium, the Product of the Year award is typically given to products with a short shelf life and a high turnover rate, such as soft drinks and cosmetics.
In addition, this is a significant achievement for the Galaxy Z Flip 4, as the “Product of the Year” logo is widely recognized by Belgian consumers. Since 1987, this logo has aided customers, and according to surveys cited by Samsung, nearly half of consumers believe it helps them make the best purchasing decision.
People have spoken, and the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is beloved
The award is determined by brand and distributor submissions. The submissions are judged by consumers who personally test the products. They consider various criteria, including originality, appeal, and usability. For the most realistic and accurate results, the judges test these products in their living environments.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is appealing due to its compact foldable design, stylish appearance, and sturdy hinge, which enables features such as Flex Mode. It is as powerful as any other flagship, despite lacking Samsung DeX, and is equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset in all regions. Recently, Samsung upgraded it to Android 13 and One UI 5.0. The update provides a more unified user experience, enhanced multitasking via multi-window gestures, and enhanced performance.
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 with 128GB of storage space is available in Belgium for €1,099. It is available in four color options, but customers can pay extra for the Bespoke Edition to mix and match a wider range of colors.
