The Galaxy Unpacked event brought Samsung’s next generation of foldables – the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4. While there is no shortage of competitors in China, on the global stage the Z series goes almost unchallenged – the Z Flip3 alone made up half of the foldable market in the first three months of this year.
The newly announced Moto Razr 2022 looks compelling and it should be available in the West (the previous models was), but it’s not clear when that would happen. Others like the Pixel foldable are still the stuff of rumors.
This makes the Galaxy Z series the most influential foldables of the moment. Check out our hands-on review with the Z Fold4 and Z Flip4 for a close look at the upgrades.

Samsung also unveiled the new Galaxy Watch5 series at the Unpacked event. For better or for worse, Samsung is the one big player in the Wear OS market as most other smartphone makers prefer to use proprietary OSes. There is a Pixel Watch from Google on the way (it should arrive before the Pixel Fold), then there are pricey options like the Montblanc and the likes of the Oppo Watch3, which runs a proprietary OS in China and should switch to Wear OS if and when it launches globally.
